  8. RUN
    good Evening Run 5.94 km 00:30 08:10 pace

    It's tougher to stay motivated and to get out and run regularly between training programs. Managed to convince myself to do 6km. Not bad...

  9. RUN
    great Evening Run 6.1 km 00:28 07:20 pace

    Reversed the usual Tuesday 6km tempo just to keep things a bit interesting. I'm not sure which way is tougher...feels like maybe there's some longer, gradual uphills this way vs. the reve... read more

    great 10.31 km 01:00 09:18 pace

    Nice group this morning for an easy 10km. We saw the Ride for Heart from the Bloor Viaduct and enjoyed some cloudy skies.

  13. RUN
    great Evening Run 5.01 km 00:23 07:32 pace

    Wasn't too many years ago that I couldn't even manage a run for a week after a marathon. Tonight I wanted to blast away some of the frustration from the weekend at Ottawa.

    So it was temp... read more

    alright 2016 Ottawa Marathon 42.72 km 03:59 08:59 pace

    More thoughts later on the blog, but that was one tough run. The forecast was for warm, humid temps and sun. Thankfully, there was a fairly good cloud cover at the start.

    I ran well early with tho... read more

    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.

    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.

    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
