  1. walk
    good pick up car 2.3 km

    Walked to pick up the car. Knee is improving, I just need to stay sane with it. The 10K this weekend is sold out, so i'll just do a parkrun. There's another couple of races in three weeks... read more

    good Plank 00:02:00

    After an evening of working madly in the dark to clean the yard before the snow and freezing rain, I did my plank. Shoulder was rotten, of course.

      If it's going to snow why bother with cleaning up the yard? 😉

      Thanks, I can't let it freeze in a mess because then you can't do anything with it. The forecast is for extreme cold for two days then milder weather Friday, so i'll aim to finish on Friday since the materials break being worked when it's too cold. I got the stuff this morning to finish it, would love to do it now but will work indoors til it warms up.

  3. RUN
    good Car Dropoff 6 km 00:36 09:39 pace

    Had to take the car in for emissions testing so I ran between locations. I shouldn't have raced uphill to catch a traffic light, my knee really didn't like that a bit. Otherwise it was a ... read more

    good Plank and Situps 00:06:00

    Plank, situps and stretches, after a day of yard work. Winter is threatening to descend upon us and the last yard work of the year has become urgent...

    good Sports Field Therapy 3.1 km 00:20 10:22 pace

    Next week is my favourite 10K but I haven't signed up for it because my leg has been so iffy and I don't know if I can handle it. I was going to do a trial 10k today, however it didn'... read more

    good The Plank 00:02:00

    Busy day, then The Plank. I still don't know if it's wrecking the shoulder but I had a terrible sleep even with ibuprofen and bengay so it is starting to look like maybe it is. We'll... read more

      It's from a torn rotator cuff which has never really healed. The day may come when I go for surgery, but right now I don't want to spend the $30k

  7. RUN
    good Ajax Duffins Trail Parkrun 5 km 00:27 08:41 pace

    Time is a guess. Windy, sunny, -2C, patches of ice and mud on the leaf covered gravel trail. I felt bad when I read Vic's story of last weekend's run with hardly anyone there, so I took p... read more

  8. FIT
    good Plank and Situps 00:06:00

    Finally did some situps plus The Plank. Knee was not too good, needed a fair bit of flexing. Every up with a down.

  9. RUN
    good The Little Loop 3.2 km 00:20 10:03 pace

    Just an easy jog on the little loop plus trail section. A chillier but still mild morning, breezy and overcast. The knee was not too bad and i'm feeling optimistic. Now two more hours on the l... read more

    good Plank. 00:02:00

    After over half a day on the ladder and almost a full day at work, a plank followed by deep slumber on the floor. My shoulder then became so troublesome I finally opened a tube of Ben Gay I got at ... read more

  11. FIT
    good The Plank 00:02:00

    Did it again! Long day on ladder, then the Plank. Weather is turning tomorrow evening so I am desperate to finish. Wish me good speed tomorrow! I had to redo one section due to it not looking good ... read more

  12. FIT
    good The Plank 00:02:00

    Still not sure whether the plank is a good idea. Did stretches. No situps for a few days as i'm getting enough core work wangling ladders.

  13. RUN
    good Rainy Recovery 3.2 km 00:20 10:03 pace

    After more ladder work yesterday I woke with severe cramps in my good leg! They were soon over though so I went out into the windy rain to do a little jog. I could see the part of the wall I did in... read more

    After a long frustrating and tiring day on the ladder, my goshwow plank.

    good Planks 00:02:00

    I feel silly posting one two minute front plank. Even that seems to stress my shoulder but i'll give it a few days to see if I have to stop doing even this. Also stretching...

  16. RUN
    good Angus Glen 5K 5 km 00:27 08:47 pace

    This morning when the weather was perfect for working on my house, it was Sunday morning so I couldn't. This afternoon the cold winds came up, the sky darkened, and it was time for my race at ... read more

    good Plank Streak is Over 00:02:00

    I did the front planks then decided to skip the side and reverse planks because I think they are making my shoulder worse. So I will keep on doing the front planks plus situps, but my hot hundred p... read more

    good Whitby Park Run 5 km 00:30 09:39 pace

    I was just pulling into the parking lot when I saw them go, so I lost about 3 minutes, and my actual time was about 27 minutes. It was cold and raining. I was surprised to see Tom and Aneez there t... read more

      Nice running! I've done that before, ran from the car right through the start line and into the race.

      Drago, perhaps I gave the wrong impression. I have reinjured my knee twice this year and am gradually recovering each time. The problem is that the recovery deceives me into thinking I can do more than I actually can, but I am relearning the parameters. Recovery always includes pain but it gets less and less. It is still painful but the pain is steadily diminishing. I went through this all before. Never thought it would heal, but it is.

    Planks (and puzzles) and situps plus stretches. I was very happy to see all the yard waste gone when I got home! Sometimes if the city guys decide you didn't do it properly (too heavy, too big... read more

    good Run in the Rain 3.2 km 00:20 10:03 pace

    Easy run in the cold rain. I had to hope the yard waste pickup didn't get to my house before I did. They hadn't, so I desperately bagged and bundled stuff until I got too cold and wet. Bl... read more
