  1. RUN
    good Back from the sick 5.44 km 00:30 08:52 pace

    First run back after a solid few days of being sick. I took it pretty easy since my energy is still low. We'll get back into the swing of things this weekend.

  2. Still sick with the remnants of a really nasty cold, but not panicking by any stretch. I've missed a couple of runs at this point in the training and it's not a concern. The plan going fo... read more

  3. RUN
    blah Last Long Run before BMO 27.7 km 02:35 08:59 pace

    Probably should have skipped this entire run, but I didn't.

    I woke up yesterday with a sore throat and some mild body aches. Uh-oh - getting sick. Better now than in three weeks, I suppose, b... read more

  4. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 6 km 00:32 08:28 pace

    Easy 6km to kick off a 40km weekend. Big run tomorrow.

  5. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 8 km 00:41 08:17 pace

    A hard 6km on Tuesday and 14km yesterday meant tired legs today. Nothing new...I've been running on tired legs since January. I've pretty much forgotten what it's like to run on rest... read more

  6. RUN
    great Commute Home 13.73 km 01:09 08:07 pace

    It was such a nice day, so I made plans to run home from work tonight instead of taking transit. I had 10km on the schedule, but the run home is just under 14km...no difference, right?

  7. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6 km 00:27 07:18 pace

    Tempo Tuesday is back. That was such a good run. I had so much energy right from the start and I felt strong and fast throughout.

  8. Big plans for this week and the three after that. It's back to five days a week now after Around the Bay plus I'm going to do a couple of run commutes between work and home. We're at... read more

    Great run this morning with friends. We ended up ditching the route from the clinic and opted to run an out and back to the Leslie Street Spit instead. I tacked on a bit at the end to get some more... read more

  10. RUN
    good Variety Village Teeadmill 6 km 00:30 07:56 pace

    Four weeks to go and just one more week until the top of the training. Then it's the taper and time to rest up a bit before race day.

    Today was good. I felt like the heavy legs post-AtB are a... read more

  11. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 10 km 00:51 08:11 pace

    This was one of those runs where for the first few kilometres I wasn't sure 10km was even possible. But then I got in the groove, picked up the pace and boom...10km at the usual pace.

    My legs... read more

  12. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 6 km 00:30 08:09 pace

    First run after Around the Bay on Sunday. These post-race tempo runs are like stepping into a time machine. The moment you start running, it's like you're back on the course, doing the la... read more

  14. RUN
    great Around the Bay Road Race 2014 30 km 02:34 08:14 pace

    What to say. 10 minute PB, ran pretty much a perfect race on a really nice day for running. Very happy with this effort and looking forward to BMO Vancouver Marathon in five weeks.

  15. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6 km 00:31 08:21 pace

    Easy 6km the day before Around the Bay. Felt great, ran strong. Thought about goals and strategy and visualized a strong run up the last hill and to the finish.

  16. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 10 km 00:52 08:24 pace

    Nice mindless run. Didn't think much about the running part, and watched some hockey on the TV at the Village. One more easy 6km on Saturday and then it's Around the Bay on Sunday.

    Not bad. The ankle cooperated and feels decent - no worse that it's been for the last little while and quite a bit better than it was yesterday. Ice and Tylenol continues to be the treatment. ... read more

    alright Pre-AtB Taper 20km 20.4 km 01:49 08:35 pace

    I needed a bit of a step back this week to give the legs a chance to recover prior to the race next Sunday.

    The good news - nice run with Alice, Sam, Jeff, Ida and Miguel. I think I ran pretty wel... read more

    Tough. The legs were tired from the start and I just didn't have anything to give on this one. I think some rest is in order here.
