Re: Special insurance for racing outside Canada?

It varies by insurance provider - check with yours to ensure that you're covered for competition. I remember that CAA's policy specifically excludes medical treatment for anything that happens to you while part of an organized sporting event. So if you had a heart attack while racing, you'd be on th...

Re: My kind of town, Chicago is

Amazing job Ian. But then, with all the miles and races you've put in the bank this year, probably not all that surprising.

Goldfish crackers are way better than meat and cheese after any race.

Give yourself a break now and heal up so that #7 won't be as painful.

You're more of a man than I am - racing when facing a bunch of injuries - I'd probably have bailed. Glad to hear it went pretty well for you.

Re: probably a dumb question re: bread

I make bread (by hand) fairly regularly, so I have some ideas. From what you said, probably the biggest problem was that you used too much flour for the amount of water. Bread dough shouldn't be falling apart when you knead it - it should be supple, springy and a bit tacky. Bread recipes, especially...

Re: The Wednesday Thread

I've been remiss about posting for the last few days, but luckily not remiss in working out. This morning was a chilly set of 400 repeats - about 4 seconds slower than I'd been running them earlier in the year (when I was doing 12, as opposed to the 8 I managed this morning). I'm amazed at how fast ...

Re: How long before I'm not gasping in the pool?

Here's my experience. I just started swimming a month ago - I haven't swum laps since the swimming lessons I took when I was probably 10 years old or something. I figured that starting swimming is like starting running - you need to take it slow and build. I also found that front crawl by itself is ...

This morning was my first attempt at something approaching speedwork post-injury - tempo run. 4k at tempo effort; 10k total. Should probably have pushed harder, but I'll worry about that for next week. 1500m of swimming last night, followed by finding out that the showers had no hot water. At least ...

Re: Sleepless Wednesday morning

Morning everyone. No running on the schedule today, but I'll be in the pool again tonight. Looks very windy out there, which should make my bike into work challenging.
