  1. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 18 5.01 km 00:31 10:01 pace

    Ran with Ginny again and pushed her a bit to see if we could get close to 31:00 for the 5km. Almost did it! She'll hit that goal in a few weeks no problem. Onwards to sub-30 minutes for her.

    great Advent Runstreak Day 17 5.01 km 00:26 08:16 pace

    Thought it would be cold, snowy, windy and dark. It end up being not that cold, with pretty snow, breezy and well lit by festive Christmas lights.

    Day 17 of the Advent streak, day 19 overall. Onwa... read more

  3. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 16 5.01 km 00:24 07:43 pace

    The old Garmin was mightily confused at the start, suggesting it was 1km to the corner (not true) and that I ran that kilometre in 38 seconds (also not true). So I restarted it, hence the weirdness... read more

  4. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 15 5.62 km 00:27 07:50 pace

    A little different route today to mix things up. I went out thinking I'd just do the usual loop in reverse, but then added in a couple of hills up Birchmount and along Danforth for fun.

    great Advent Runstreak Day 14 15.4 km 01:21 08:30 pace

    Really nice run with Jeffrey N. today. So much for taking it easy...he's no slouch in the pace department.

    Just a bit of drizzle and a lot of puddles to jump, otherwise a decent day for mid-D... read more

  6. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 13 5.05 km 00:31 09:48 pace

    Ran this with my beautiful runner wife. She had a 90 second headstart, but once I caught up at about 750m, I decided to run with her for a change.

    Day 13 is in the books, and day 15 of the runstre... read more

    great Advent Runstreak Day 12 3.01 km 00:15 08:05 pace

    Ran the 3km minimum tonight after a longer work day, longish commute and dinner out with Ginny and the kids.

    Much better conditions tonight - mostly clear, dry sidewalks. Thanks City of Toronto fo... read more

  8. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 11 5.04 km 00:28 09:04 pace

    20cm of snow makes for some tough running. My legs feel like I ran 15km after that. What a workout.

    Super glad I went out though. There's something nice about the quiet that comes with a heav... read more

      Totally agree -- it was a little slushy by the time I went out.

    great Advent Runstreak Day 10 5.01 km 00:25 08:07 pace

    The run before the storm. The weather people say 10cm tonight. We'll see. Right now it's just cold and windy with some snowflakes here and there.

  10. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 9 5.03 km 00:24 07:33 pace

    Another one in the books. There was a bit of light drizzle, the kind of weather that used to push me to Variety Village for a treadmill run. But not this year. I'm embracing the winter, and al... read more

    alright Advent Runstreak Day 8 5.01 km 00:27 08:32 pace

    Into week two of the Advent runstreak we go. I felt kind of tired and a a little lacking in the energy tonight and so I didn't push it. I should probably have paid better attention to what I a... read more

    good Advent Runstreak Day 6 5.05 km 00:25 08:02 pace

    After much procrastination, I geared up and got out for a run. I should have gone out in the morning as the weather was much nicer then. But it was still a good run, even with a fairly strong north... read more

    blah Advent Runstreak Day 5 5.01 km 00:28 08:56 pace

    Pan bread and pasta at Jack Astor's, including a big glass of Coke is not a good pre-run meal.

    Still, 5km done.

  16. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 4 5.01 km 00:26 08:14 pace

    Indoors tonight at Variety Village. The kids did their thing in the fieldhouse while Ginny and I both hit the treadmills at the same time. This is an exciting development.

    great Advent Runstreak Day 3 5.04 km 00:25 08:03 pace

    A bit chillier tonight, but still good to get out for a night run. Getting used to the cold weather running a bit early this year.

  18. RUN
    great Advent Runstreak Day 2 5.02 km 00:27 08:38 pace

    Back to the old neighbourhood loop. I thought it would be colder than it ended up feeling, maybe because I added a couple of layers more than yesterday.

      Fun! Do you get a chocolate at the end of each run?

      The run is the reward! But that would be good too. No chocolate until you run.
