  1. RUN
    great Time Trial 5 km 00:20 06:33 pace

    The marathon is done, so the fear of injury when doing speed work is also not as great as it was a few weeks ago.

    Tonight I decided to see where I was at over 5km after 19 weeks of marathon traini... read more

  2. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6.01 km 00:28 07:32 pace

    Finding the old pace again a week after the marathon. Still a bit heavy in the legs, but much better today than Thursday.

  3. RUN
    great Neighbourhood Run 6 km 00:31 08:17 pace

    Another recovery run tonight. These marathons stick with you for a bit after you run. The fatigue comes really quickly, even over a mere 6km.

    Still, a beautiful evening for a run around the neighb... read more

  4. RUN
    good Recovery Run 3.08 km 00:14:48 07:44 pace

    Nothing brings back memories of the last 5km of a marathon than a recovery run. I didn't look at my watch, instead I just ran what felt decent. Turns out that was a bit quicker than race pace.... read more

  6. RUN
    great Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon 2015 42.2 km 03:36 08:14 pace

    Personal best by an incredible 12:29. Still processing the fact I just ran a 3:36:01 full marathon. The effort put into training this winter and spring paid off and the weather today was perfect as... read more

      I need to get a year older, and 11 or 12 minutes faster still to qualify. Finally there is hope that someday I could do it. But it'll be at least a year or two before I can even make an attempt to run better than 3:25.

    The traditional 3km with the pace bunnies and John Stanton. Awesome group out this morning in perfect weather.

  8. RUN
    great Last Training Run 10.01 km 00:48 07:42 pace

    That's a wrap. 10km at a bit faster than race pace. If that turns out to be race pace, I'll be wearing a grin on my face from Sunday morning until the end of time.

    Felt great tonight and... read more

    Hit the 6km Waterfront Trail route but ran it backwards for a change of pace.

    Felt pretty good...one more 10km tomorrow and it's a wrap.

    One more run in the books. Two more training runs to go. Feeling a bit tired this morning, but that's to be expected thanks to the 16km at race pace yesterday.

  11. RUN
    great TORW2015 Week Eighteen LSD 15.3 km 01:22 08:35 pace

    Woohoo! Last long run done. Ran this a bit easier than race pace thanks to a sore calf muscle that had me worried.

    Turns out I don't engage that when I run, so it wasn't an issue. I&#x... read more

  12. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 10.03 km 00:50 08:01 pace

    Signs the marathon is close: I'm tired of running. 10km was a bit of a mental struggle tonight, but I got it done. Counting down the days and wishing there were fewer runs between now and mara... read more

  13. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6.02 km 00:28 07:26 pace

    Tempo Tuesday...not many of these fast, shorter runs left now.

    Felt decent tonight, with just a bit of lingering soreness from Sunday. Onwards...a mere seven more runs left before race day.

  14. RUN
    great TORW2015 Week Seventeen LSD 23 km 02:17 09:33 pace

    Taper time! Last long run over 20km and it was a hot one...well, at least through the first 13km or so. Then we decided to head for the lake where it was at least 5ºC cooler.

    I ran well, but at a ... read more

      Shhhhhhh...remember when our first marathon surprised us with (somewhat) reasonable weather even though it was a billion degrees in the blazing sun the day before? That's what I'm sending your way!!!!!

    good Wednesday Speed Play (sort of) 10.02 km 00:52 08:18 pace

    Would have played around with speed a bit more if not for the sore legs. I think a rest day or three is in order here. Got the 10km in, and I'll run a bit tomorrow then take a couple of days o... read more
