      Thanks Tom. I tried not to look at my watch and wanted to see what my steady state was. I am happy to say this is my new steady state pace. :)

      Maria, I am LOVING the Olympics. My wife is getting frustrated because I am always watching, reading, or talking about them.
      So proud of my fellow Canadian athletes!

    alright 5k Mock-Race 5 km 00:21 06:52 pace

    This was a mock race to help judge my training paces. I was hoping to run a 21:00 flat but I struggled with my breathing which was a bit of a surprise since I rode 62k of hills this morning and ant... read more

      Its so hard to gauge your effort without being in a real race. I can never run as fast as I can in a race in my daily training. Nice effort!

      Maybe it was because you did the 62k this morning that it was a struggle. Could be faster on fresh legs and lungs. Darn speedy though!

      You both are probably right....hard to guage a fake race and that morning ride may just have had me fatigued.
      Either way, that pacing is close enough to get a good idea of what my training runs should look like.

      I used to hate I like them. Perhaps a sign that I am not completely terrible at them anymore?

  15. RUN
    Tempo crapola 8 km

    Today's tempo was not a good one. Yesterday's speedwork and ride took a toll on my body and I was feeling it both in my legs and lungs. Tomorrow is a much needed day off.

    Orleans Cycles / Synergy Spa ... 45.5 km

    Nice ride with the guys. They introduced me to Quigley Hill, a short VERY steep hill that has a 16% grade which is quad crackalackin. I managed to snag the KOM on Strava for it!

      From the bottom, it is VERY daunting, but very beautiful. Picture a flat road, lined with massive oak trees that create a canopy over the road. When the incline starts it looks like it goes straight up and you cannot even see the top of the hill because of the trees.

    Canal to Bronson and back 7 km

    EZ/Moderate pace today. I was supposed to do 8x400m @ 5k pace but am feeling tired and fatigued so I took it easy. I will try my speedwork tomorrow after a good nights sleep.
