Re: Shoe Lace Tying... Whaaaat

Do people really tie their shoes that tightly? I like to wear mine loosely, leaving just enough lace to tie double knots.

Gym Thursday

The hardest part getting this morning's run done before work was getting out of bed! 20k w/ 16 at MP. Felt smooth and in control making me think the training effect is kicking .

Re: Finally Friday . . .

I did a 10k run commute this morning. I need to plan better as I ended up running with more than I wanted to in my backpack. It's mostly uphill for the first 6.5k but overall a good run.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA, Saturday

I'm sure there are some on here who ran but haven't posted on here so we can imagine this was a success. Unless Habs wants to go out for a quick 41.5?

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA, Saturday

I can contribute 22k. Marathon training has started. I'm jumping into the program near the end of week 7 as I gave myself a bit of recovery from the half marathon last Sunday. I wasn't following a half marathon training program mileage-wise, but I modelled my workouts around the Hanson's program so ...

Re: Struggling Thursday

13.5k with 10k tempo done at lunch. I was looking forward to this run since Monday as the forecast called for cooler temps with rain. They were right! Run felt really good.

Re: Trail Tuesday

Feeling undertrained as I try to fight off this bug and I haven't run much at all. It was cooler today so did 6x800 to see where I'm at. Still not 100% but today's run shows I'm not too far off track.

I think Habs is likely bouncing off the walls so I'm starting the daily thread in her honour.

I'm coming down with a bad case of the man cold so I haven't run in a few days.

Re: Running Mules..

The marathoninvestigation internet sleuth is no friend of the running community. This is one of multiple entries where he rats out people for running with someone else's bib (at races that prohibit race transfers). It's gross. If he cared about runners (their health and well-being, or their best in...
