  1. RUN
    great Evening R 10.11 km 00:55 08:41 pace

    Last run before race day done. 29ºC tonight and I ran this underfueled as well. By 5km things were falling apart, but some Q Energy Drink at the turn around turned things around.

    Sunday promises t... read more

  2. RUN
    great Afternoon Run 6.13 km 00:31 08:10 pace

    6km more...just one training run left to go tomorrow.

    This one was a good opportunity to get some mileage in under a blazing hot sun. Race day is shaping up to be a bit warm, but I've run ind... read more

  3. RUN
    great Morning Run 6.07 km 00:30 07:59 pace

    A little 6km fun run in what could be similar conditions to the last 6km of the Ottawa Marathon next weekend. A little hot, with the sun blazing down.

  4. RUN
    great Morning Run 16.01 km 01:20 08:04 pace

    The last longish run...just a 16km race pace effort to lock in a good rhythm for the marathon in eight days. I was aiming for about 4:55-5:00/km on this one, and I did pretty well. There was a long... read more

  5. RUN
    great Evening Run 10.17 km 00:49 07:42 pace

    Took some convincing to get out the door tonight, but once I did, I was happy to be out running.

    I ran the flag route out along the lake and enjoyed every minute. Kept up a great pace right to the... read more

  6. RUN
    great Afternoon Run 10.24 km 00:52 08:09 pace

    Another lovely day for a run. Set out to run 10km and ran the reverse of the terrible run route from last week.

    Tonight's run was much better and I kept up a good pace throughout. Eleven days... read more

  7. RUN
    great Neighbourhood Loop 6.1 km 00:29 07:39 pace

    Worked from home today, so that meant I could get a run in before dinner. It's perfect running weather right now - not too warm, but sunny with a bit of a breeze.

    I managed a strong tempo pac... read more

  8. RUN
    great Morning Run 23.3 km 02:00 08:17 pace

    Yup. 23.3km on the treadmill. That was my longest indoor run ever by a long shot.

    I didn't feel like running in the cold wind and rain, so I made the decision to run this one on the treadmill... read more

  9. RUN
    great Treadmill 6.02 km 00:31 08:23 pace

    Easy Saturday 6km on the treadmill. Got in the zone and just ran easy for a half hour without much thought. That's what I love about the treadmill sometimes. It mindless miles without having t... read more

  10. RUN
    great Evening Run 10.1 km 00:52 08:15 pace

    The flag run, with bonus gnats. The bugs were plentiful this evening, making for some less than enjoyable moments on this run.

    Overall, much better than last night as I ran first, then ate dinner ... read more

  11. RUN
    blah Evening Run 9.8 km 00:55 08:59 pace

    That. Was. Terrible. Let's pretend that run never happened.

  12. RUN
    good Evening Run 6.07 km 00:31 08:05 pace

    After dinner runs...the worst. Started out decent enough, but pizza dinner didn't share my enthusiasm for running tempo pace. Got stuck at a traffic light in the third kilometre (I was fine wi... read more

  13. RUN
    great Morning Run 22.11 km 01:53 08:14 pace

    Thankful for a good running buddy this morning. Having company always makes a long run more enjoyable. I really appreciate that you come out to run with me, Miguel.

    We ran along the MGT, past the ... read more

  14. RUN
    good Neighbourhood Loop 6.07 km 00:29 07:42 pace

    Back at it after nearly a week off. I picked up a very tender spot on the top of my baby toe knuckle on the long run last Sunday. That, and some mild knee tendonitis led me to decide to rest and re... read more

  15. RUN
    great Toronto Marathon as a Trainin... 33.4 km 02:42 07:48 pace

    Ran the first 26km of the Toronto Marathon, then made the turn east and headed home for 33.4km total.

    The plan was to run BQ marathon pace for a bit and see how that felt. It felt fast and it&#x... read more

    great Morning Run with Lindsey 8.19 km 00:54 10:40 pace

    A lovely run with Lindsey this morning. She's training for the Ottawa 10km in four weeks, so it's getting to where she's closing in on double digits!

    Today was another longest run e... read more

      Yay Lindsey! And great plan for tomorrow's soggy run. See you around 24k or so!

    alright Treadmill 10.02 km 00:52 08:19 pace

    Every once in a while someone says something like, "It's easy for you," when talking to me about running. It's probably the one thing that I hate the most.

      I find the night runs are always tougher to be motivated for. Congrats on sticking with it last night.

      Without the tough runs, you'd never know an easy one. The uninitiated do not know the trials and tribulations. The initiated know we do not share the trials and tribulations with the uninitiated, because they simply would not understand. Runners see the obstacles and road blocks push through, with the best poker face we can muster.

    alright Treadmill 10.01 km 00:51 08:12 pace

    Bit of a tough run tonight after a poor sleep last night. Kept it going and finished it strongly though. Better runs ahead.

  19. RUN
    great Treadmill 6.02 km 00:29 07:39 pace

    A little escalation of the pace tonight. Started the treadmill at 7.5mph and went up from there every kilometre. Trying to keep things reasonable here with just over four weeks until race day.

  20. RUN
    great Taylor Creek, Don Valley, Che... 24.78 km 02:03 08:00 pace

    Let's call this a race pace 25km. I ran solo today since the marathon clinic at the running room is racing their marathon next Sunday and there would be pretty much nobody out looking for 23-2... read more

      Thanks Linda. You never know what race day will bring, but I'm feeling pretty good right now and looking forward to going for it in Ottawa again this year. That race and course has been very good to me in the past.
