  1. VELO
    Morning Meander 11.6 mi 01:02 11.2mph pace

    L to skool and then a meander along the canal.
    Construction *everywhere* but nice when I got back to the canal, finally. Detours are no fun.
    Happy Tuesday, Peeps!

      Another day of frenetic activity! You're doing Ottawa Sporting Life 10K this weekend as I recall... I'm signed up for a local fund raising 10K myself, it's going to be brutal, I know the route well. Talk of hills. Anyway, good to see you restraining yourself in taper!

      detours on a bike are particularly no fun because lord knows what the conditions will be on the roads you didn't pick. ah well. but maybe you'll have nice smooth places to bike when it's all over

      @Ann- ha. no. two dumbbells, 1 in each hand. they call them "suitcases" i guess because it mimics having to carry heavy luggage...?

      Another good speed work Barb! Is it 30 sec full sprint and then 30 sec jog? or do you walk during recovery seconds?

      oh and @Robin - no race this weekend. not doing goodlife this year. we're saving for our trip to Spain in September, so only local racing this year for me. But that's okay. I just keep thinking about all the places I'll get to run in Spain and France in a few months. :)

      barb, i don't think that pace is a stretch for you after taper and without such a gritty wind and in a race environment. this run means a lot, i think. enjoy the tea and reading and SPAIN planning!! happy weekend!

      So coach probably meant half pace and you went 10K pace, and in a stiff wind no less, and still nailed it, even if only by a second? You totally got this, Barb! Congrats on the paper! Spain will be amazing!!!
