  1. RUN
    great TORW2015 Week Fifteen LSD 29.22 km 02:43 08:58 pace

    This is what a solid 29km training run looks like. Despite a crazy hilly route, I ran super strong from start to finish. This was the encouraging run I needed to prove that the hard work I've ... read more

  2. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6.02 km 00:31 08:21 pace

    Easy 6km run this morning. Felt great, ran strong. No idea why, but when you get a run like this you take it.

  3. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 10.02 km 00:50 08:03 pace

    Thursday 10km runs are the worst. My legs are tired from three days in a row, and dinner almost never sits well.

    Still, 10km in the books at steady pace and one run closer to Ottawa. Truth - I jus... read more

  4. RUN
    great Fartlek Wednesday 10.01 km 00:51 08:09 pace

    Fun times on the treadmill tonight, playing around with speed. It's been a long time since I've done a fartlek workout and I don't think I was as speedy back then as I am now.

  5. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6.02 km 00:28 07:30 pace

    That was the kind of run I needed after a few weeks of this knee thing hanging around. Tonight it was easy tempo running with no pain and just a bit of tightness in my legs from Sunday's 23km ... read more

      Two more big weeks of 60km+ with 29km and 32km Sunday runs, then it starts tapering off. Three weeks until it really starts.

    great TORW2015 Week Fourteen LSD 23.15 km 02:13 09:14 pace

    Dailymile needs a "blown over" feeling icon. Windiest run in forever with a steady easterly wind right in our faces for a good part of this run. The section along Queen's Quay out to... read more

      Thank goodness for you running with me...I did not want to finish that one! And thanks for letting me draft a bit ;)

  7. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 6.03 km 00:30 08:08 pace

    Steady Saturday run at the Village. The knee isn't better yet, but it's slowly getting there. It doesn't bother me when I run, and most days it's fine which is better than a cou... read more

  8. RUN
    great Run Commute 10.25 km 00:54 08:30 pace

    Planned to run home today, but got a call just before 3pm that Lindsey was sick at school. I figured running would still be the fastest way to get home, so I geared up and hit the pavement.

  9. RUN
    great Ten x 400m Hills 12 km 01:06 08:48 pace

    Last of the hills are done. Ten repeats tonight and I felt great from beginning to end.

    I switched out the old pair of New Balance 860V4's for a new pair and instantly noticed a difference. I... read more

    great Neighbourhood Loop (6k Edition) 6.01 km 00:28 07:35 pace

    Outdoors! In shorts! In the evening!

    Good run, splits were 4:42, 4:46, 4:44, 4:42, 4:47, 4:37. Knee felt okay, although my calves felt tight tonight. I remembered after the run that I did 27km on ... read more

  11. RUN
    great TORW2015 Week Thirteen LSD 27.24 km 02:36 09:12 pace

    I wasn't sure how this would go given the knee pain I've been dealing with this week. So to be able to to 27km without any problems at all was super encouraging. I'm pretty sure I co... read more

  12. Knee is feeling much better, even after 6km today. The plan for tomorrow is to run something between 12km and 32km depending on how things feel. The goal is to take as many steps forward as I can, ... read more

  13. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 6.04 km 00:30 08:04 pace

    No soreness in the knee during the run today, but I'm still taking things easy here. Two steps forward, one step back is okay. I'm trying to avoid making it worse while still making progr... read more

  14. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 10.04 km 00:49 07:53 pace

    Another night, another 10km. I'm glad it's April now because that means I can watch the Blue Jays play instead of the Leafs. Much more enjoyable.

    The knee is okay. It felt pretty good th... read more

  15. RUN
    good Variety Village Treadmill 10.02 km 00:49 07:50 pace

    This was one of those runs that could have gone either way. I've been dealing with some knee pain since Sunday. A visit to my physiotherapist today confirmed what I thought it was - tendonitis... read more

    great TORW2015 Week Twelve LSD 32.1 km 03:15 09:45 pace

    Big long run that was 3km more than the schedule called for. Longtime running bud Nicole M. was running her last long run before her comeback marathon in London in three weeks so we ran this one to... read more

  17. RUN
    great Variety Village Treadmill 6.02 km 00:30 08:04 pace

    Easy Saturday morning run at the Village. Nothing special. My legs are feeling good again after a week of recovery, just in time for 29km tomorrow.

  18. RUN
    alright Variety Village Treadmill 4.4 km 00:23 08:20 pace

    10km tonight didn't happen. A not-so-smart dinner to celebrate Lindsey's birthday conspired against me tonight. It wasn't enjoyable running at all, and my legs can use a rest from th... read more

    A little hill training on the treadmill. The Mio heart rate data provides evidence that I actually ran hills tonight.

  20. RUN
    great 8 x 400m Hills 9.52 km 00:52 08:48 pace

    Treadmill hills. Did the usual routine of a 1km warmup, 400m run "down" the hill, 400m run up at 2/4/4/3 incline for each 100m portion, then 100m run out at the top, 100m walk back and th... read more
