  1. RUN
    good Dundas Valley 12.01 km 01:26 11:30 pace

    Introduced Greg to the trail wonders in DVCA. Most of the trails were packed snow but one (Homestead) was ankle deep, wet fresh snow and my calves did not like that. Otherwise, I'll keep sayi... read more

    good Do Yoga With Me - pre-run 00:20

    http://www.doyogawithme.com/content/yoga-runners-pre-run

    More difficult than I expected, in a compact 20 min video. I even got a little bit sweaty.

    great Home TM 5 km 00:31 09:58 pace

    MAF test. According to the formula, my MAF heart rate is 150. I was pleasantly surprised as I didn't have to go too slow to keep my HR under 150, although it was annoying at the start, when ... read more

  6. RUN
    great RBG - Cootes Paradise 7 km 00:50 11:22 pace

    Decided to take a chance on the trails. It was mostly crunchy snow and not too slippery at all. I actually find this winter trail running to be easier than summer - if I can't see any hazard... read more

  7. RUN
    great RBG - Hendrie Valley 6.7 km 00:44 10:39 pace

    Surprisingly speedy, given the snow covered trails! The packing snow actually had good traction and I'm sure I was risking my life and ankles by running fast, but all went well. Beautiful snow... read more

    alright 11/15/14 10 km 00:59 09:31 pace

    The #burlingtonskirtbrigade (no skirts today; however, we all showed up in coordinating pink/purple/black) ran together today! just an easy 10K, so nice to run with Emma I. Sam J. Amy D., I've... read more

  9. RUN

  11. RUN
    good 11/12/14 5.6 km 00:33 09:35 pace

    It was windy, but I think headwind on the bike sucks more than headwind while running. Please remind me of this in the middle of January.

    great 11/11/14 22.37 km 00:58 14.3mph pace

    Well, the unusually warm and gorgeous day happened, so I took Audrey out and we got our lurve on the small chainring on Northshore.

  13. RUN
    good BT - Guelph Line 6.44 km 00:58 14:27 pace

    What a gorgeous day! My first run in a week, and my calves weren't 100%, but definitely not as unhappy as they've been before the break. The first 1.5K are really hilly and technical but... read more

    great TRX Basic Training 00:36

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgJAliscmKU
    I loved the 20 minute DVD that came with my TRX, but B broke the DVD player on my laptop. This workout is very similar, great progression and regressions!

  15. FIT
    good Moksha Yoga Dundas 01:00

    Hot yoga class at Moksha Dundas. Moksha is the only studio that gets the hot temperature right - I haaaate when it's only hot enough to get you sticky sweaty - it has to be hot enough that yo... read more

    alright Spruce 21.69 km 00:59 13.7mph pace

    Unless there is a random warm day, I think outdoor cycling is finito for 2014, because holy hell, that was cold. Fortunately I managed to avoid full headwind except for 2K.

      I used to ride to work through everything, blizzards, ice storms, you name it, about 10 years ago at my last job. I was far more afraid of the traffic than the weather.

    great 11/6/14 5.62 km 01:29 25:26 pace

    A hike on BT through King's Forest with Beth. I chose technical trail that I would not be tempted to run.

    great 11/5/14 28.38 km 01:21 13.1mph pace

    Was going to ride on Spruce but when I felt the wind, I decided to ride on the beach path instead and that was the right choice, as I only had to deal with full headwind for the final 3K. Finally ... read more

      Practice in front of a mirror. I found that when I stuck a smile on my face when I didn't feel like it, it looked *so* phony I wouldn't have bought a used car from myself.
