Re: Winter Wednesday

4k for me today. I never thought 4k would feel like a major effort again.

Question regarding streaks.

In the states, I know the minimum run that can be done to keep a streak alive is commonly defined as 1 mile. What is the standard for km's? Is it different?

Re: Situps or pushups

Thanks, gives me a lot to think about. Especially, Mr. Grant's last statement as I also play softball which may make me think about the optimal fitness part.

Situps or pushups

I am just wondering, given the choice between the two; which exercise is more beneficial for a distance runner?

A Question

I am not quite where I need to be at this stage of my training. I have scheduled an 8k tempo run. I won't be able to do it. I will burn out at about 5k.

The question is this. Am I going to get more benefit out of a 5k tempo, or an 8k at a slower pace?

Re: Wednesday - Final Day of Movember

4k tempo run for me. At some point, my current tempo pace is going to have to start feeling a whole lot more comfortable if I want to reach the next level. I guess that is the challenge, isn't it?

Re: Globe & Mail article- ideal body type for marathons

I guess I need to drop a bit more height, as apparently I have begun to shrink. And about 50 more lbs.

Donald Finally Does the Run in The Great White North

After 3 years of attempting to do the run portion of The Great White North Triathlon as part of a team entry, I finally got to complete it. It was a warm, but not hot day in Stony Plain, as I awaited my cyclist to complete the bike portion of the triathlon. He was overdue by about 20 minutes from hi...

Team Entry for Great White North Triathlon

I am looking at putting together a team entry for the Great White North Triathlon in Stony Plain. My Son who had the ambulance accident in May of 2009 wants to do the swim as he is still on crutches, but has been practicing to swim the distance. I will do the run. However; that leaves a vacancy for ...

Re: It has been a Long Time

The french woman has found her first running pace. It is around 9:00 per km. (I won't tell her that I have another name for that pace; I call it a walk break) :shhh: At least she is starting!!!!

It has been a Long Time

It has been a few years since I was a rookie runner. The french woman wants to learn, but she wants to start on the treadmill. What pace would you recommend she try for her early efforts? We can fine tune it after.
