    Meh. This was supposed to be a watchless run at 80% effort, but it's 2091230945 degrees C, and then add on the humidity and you may as well just forget it.
    Anyway. So 80% felt like this today.... read more

      Wow, it's HOT in Ottawa! :) Yeah, humid here too, I was soaked when I got home. Nice moving here sistah. Your "recovery" is my "gonna die" pace. I can't even.

      Nice thing about 80% is that it's 80% of what you've got on tap. Nicely done, B

      I figured on the 80% thing. But I usually think of it as 80% of race pace. ;) thankfully the humidity kept me from blowing it.

      @Erin - I run in Newtons Distance - they have a heel drop of 2mm. I don't know if that classifies as minimalist anymore... (I just mean since people seem to argue about what minimalist is...0 drop? 1 mm? barefeet? ;) ). But I have been running in the same shoes/model for 5 years now. I love them. :)

      Ah, bein' a mom... it never stops! Glad you got some "you" time... and you did something you would enjoy. Hope you get a nap today. Maybe you can crash with L. That's what I used to do with J., usually it was 4 o'clock, I'd fall asleep while watching Oprah. :)

      It's funny because this is how I started running. I would map a route out with walkjogrun and then I'd go run it with a stop watch. Hit START when I started, and STOP when I finished. I had no concept of how fast or slow I was going, I was just going. But, this was also before I was really obsessed with time. ;)

      That's what I used to do. With a regular watch, and then I'd plug in the numbers here and it would just calculate my overall pace. Nothing wrong with that, I think! :)
