    Been feeling sluggish for the past while, so today was my do-or-die test of #oakvillehalf pacer pace (2:05 cont - 5:55/k) Legs were feeling fabulous, and I don't even have physio until later t... read more

    great Milgrove/North Waterdown 44.2 km 01:49 15.1mph pace

    I meant to ride the same route as last Friday (32K) and it's pretty simple, so I headed out with no directions. Turned onto 6th Concession and was all, "this is flat! very nice scenery, i... read more

  3. RUN
    good BT - Guelph Line 6.5 km 01:02 15:25 pace

  6. RUN
    tired 9/13/14 22 km 02:16 09:55 pace

    Ran the first 13K with Emma I. and then I saw my friend Cam, whom I haven't seen for ages in the parking lot of JBH, waiting for his work to start, so I hung out with him for a bit and then fi... read more

  7. VELO
    tired Milgrove/North Waterdown 32.27 km 01:23 14.5mph pace

    Good, sort of: hauled Audrey out of the basement on my right side, as Pranada D. showed me and only got one very small chain grease stain on my shirt. Bad: super tired quads meant I had a horrible... read more

  8. RUN
    good BT - Ray Lowes/Borers Falls/E... 10.1 km 01:27 13:50 pace

    This was very hot and cold. The parts that were runnable were flat and easy dirt path, the non-runnable parts were hilly, rocky, wet and slippery.

    2. Alternating Swing 15 each side - 12 kg

  10. RUN
    tired Bruce Trail, NE of Kerncliff 10 km 01:23 13:19 pace

    Explored another new section of BT, I think this was my favourite so far. Not too technical, but with enough hills to keep things interesting. 10K of watching the path in front of me felt very me... read more

  11. How do you get bike chain grease stains out of your clothes?

  12. VELO
    great Spruce 25.71 km 01:05 14.8mph pace

    This is the day I've been anticipating for 4 years...B is at school all day, and I have lots of time to bike, run, lift, sleep...except having a morning job to fund races and buy pretty skirts... read more

      Sounds like you will have time to put a lot of mileage on that bike while the weather is still good. Great double workout today Patty.

  13. RUN
    good Aldershot track 8.88 km 00:50 09:05 pace

    2.5K w/u, 4x1000. Goal pace was 4:37-4:50, actual splits: 4:42, 4:44, 4:43, 4:34. Right until the end, the most exciting thing I was going to write was that there was a guy running on the track wi... read more

  14. RUN
    tired Red Hill trail 21.1 km 02:08 09:46 pace

    Greg wanted to do his LR with me, so I ran the first 6K by myself, then Sarah M.'s daughter came over to babysit B, and Greg and I ran the Red Hill trail together.

    Post run, we drove to the... read more

  15. RUN
    good Kerncliff/BT/King Side Trail ... 7.7 km 00:52 10:57 pace

    I stupidly messed around with the time/date settings on my phone last night and my alarm went off an hour late! I instantly knew, because there shouldn't have been pre-dawn grey if it was 5:2... read more

  16. RUN
    alright Aldershot track 8.25 km 00:46 08:55 pace

    2K w/u, 4x1000 with 3 min recovery. First track workout in a year and I felt rusty. Splits: 4:41, 4:46, 4:49, 4:46. Goal pace is between 4:37-4:50 so I guess I did all right!

  17. VELO
    great 9/3/14 24.46 km 01:02 14.6mph pace

    Well I saw Emma I.'s #5amrunclub weather report, and I should have changed my plans and done the intervals that I have planned for tomorrow, but you can't just change into speedwork minds... read more

  18. RUN
    blah 9/2/14 10.1 km 01:03 09:57 pace

    I was going to do 10/1, but the lap/reset button on my Garmin is broken (happens, usually fixed with a reset) and so I couldn't set intervals.

  19. VELO
    great 9/1/14 54.13 km 02:31 13.4mph pace

    My first 50+K. I know it's no big deal for most of you..but remember I couldn't even turn corners in the spring. 20K by myself and then the rest with Beth, with a stop for brunch.

  20. RUN
    8/30/14 20 km 02:03 09:52 pace

    I really dislike LRs by myself, but today it was good because I prefer doing LRs on the slower side of McMillan's recommendations. So I went at a pace that kept my tired calves quiet for the ... read more
