    great Toronto Marathon as a Trainin... 33.4 km 02:42 07:48 pace

    Ran the first 26km of the Toronto Marathon, then made the turn east and headed home for 33.4km total.

    The plan was to run BQ marathon pace for a bit and see how that felt. It felt fast and it&#x... read more

    great Morning Run with Lindsey 8.19 km 00:54 10:40 pace

    A lovely run with Lindsey this morning. She's training for the Ottawa 10km in four weeks, so it's getting to where she's closing in on double digits!

    alright Treadmill 10.02 km 00:52 08:19 pace

    Every once in a while someone says something like, "It's easy for you," when talking to me about running. It's probably the one thing that I hate the most.

      I find the night runs are always tougher to be motivated for. Congrats on sticking with it last night.

      Without the tough runs, you'd never know an easy one. The uninitiated do not know the trials and tribulations. The initiated know we do not share the trials and tribulations with the uninitiated, because they simply would not understand. Runners see the obstacles and road blocks push through, with the best poker face we can muster.

    alright Treadmill 10.01 km 00:51 08:12 pace

    Bit of a tough run tonight after a poor sleep last night. Kept it going and finished it strongly though. Better runs ahead.

  5. RUN
    great Treadmill 6.02 km 00:29 07:39 pace

    A little escalation of the pace tonight. Started the treadmill at 7.5mph and went up from there every kilometre. Trying to keep things reasonable here with just over four weeks until race day.

      Thanks Linda. You never know what race day will bring, but I'm feeling pretty good right now and looking forward to going for it in Ottawa again this year. That race and course has been very good to me in the past.

  7. RUN
    great Treadmill 6.01 km 00:31 08:22 pace

    Garmin stopped three minutes in for some reason. Probably me hitting the button somehow. Anyways. Ran the usual 6km at the usual Saturday pace.

  8. RUN
    great Treadmill 10.02 km 00:51 08:14 pace

    To me, these Thursday 10km runs later in training are some of the most important. These are the runs where you learn to run a good pace on tired legs.

    great 10 x Hill Repeats 10.02 km 00:56 09:03 pace

    Last week of hill training. I ran the same hill as last week which is pretty perfect for hill repeats. 400m at anywhere from 3% to 7% and about 1km from the house for a little warm up and cool down... read more

  10. RUN
    great Treadmill 6.02 km 00:28 07:23 pace

    Back to a real tempo run after a few weeks recovering from long runs on Tuesdays. Felt pretty good considering I ran 32km a couple of days ago.

  11. RUN
    great 32km LSD with six weeks to go 32.01 km 02:53 08:43 pace

    I wasn't sure how this run would go. 32km is always a challenge and my lower back has been pretty tight and sore over the last couple of days.

    Usually that loosens up on the run and today was... read more

    Back on track with the training again. We're settled into the house, back to the usual routines and that means running some of the usual routes.

    great 8 x Hill Repeats 8.4 km 00:46 08:52 pace

    Eight hill repeats for a lovely Wednesday afternoon. I haven't been very consistent with hill training this time around thanks to the house renovation, a vacation and being sick.
