    After I dropped L off at school I went to my hill, watched the geese with their goslings for a few minutes and then turned back and went home.

      Awesome job, Barb! How you can do these on only 30 seconds recovery is beyond me-- after 30 seconds, I'm still gasping for breath and feeling like I'd surely die if I tried to start another one then. ;)

    Coach T said everything this week should be short and slow, except 1 day where I do a bit of speed work. So, just a meander after the rain and many antics with L outside.

      Now it is one week not to get sick, not to trip over the baby, not to fall down the stairs, not to do that little move that makes your hip flare up... okay! A nice run.

    Feeling like 26C this morning at 8am! Ottawa sure knows how to just turn on the heat.

      I agree, I think Ottawa is definitely the prettiest city ever, I miss it a lot. Glad you were out meandering it its beauty -- easy enough in this heat already! Same here, I think it's supposed to cool off in the next couple of days. In the meantime are you doing your stretches/ exercises?

      @Chris - eventually we'll have a few weeks where we hit 40C with the humidity. Ottawa is quite the place - we get down to -40C in the winter and up to +40C in the summer. It's quite the swing! @Judy - oh! what are you doing in Ottawa?? Montreal is my favourite city in Canada! (even though Ottawa Spring still beats Montreal spring. ;) ).

    Descending ladder 4.91 mi 00:40 08:14 pace

    Coach T asked for a descending ladder (5/4/3/2/1 with 1 minute recoveries) but said not to go all out for it, so I thought I'd aim for half marathon goal pace, since at this point that's ... read more

      i am not going back until about 2 weeks from now, which is actually 3 days before another race (my goal race). I'm a little weary about it now since things are not totally happy. i'll see how it turns out this weekend with B race, and then evaluate from there....

      Just be cautious. I think the hardest thing to do as a committed athlete is to LISTEN to our bodies. Hang in there.
