Re: Canada Day Wednesday

Happy Canada Day all! Starting to feel like a "real" runner again. Just did my week 4 day 3, couch to 5K run in what turned to be the teaming rain that started about 3 minutes after I went out the door. Now sitting here with fingers crossed that things will clear in time for fireworks. Oh ...

Re: Spring Sunday . . .

Still mizzling (Brit term I just learned, cross between mist and drizzle) here in Montreal. Tossing around heading out to Jazz Festival. Those I want to see are under tents, but very small tents. My claustrophobia might lead me to run screaming into the streets, but hoping everyone is staying away d...

The road back

Reposting from the general discussion section A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... I was a runner and a reasonably active member of this forum. I was really hoping for a daily thread today, but I guess I can't just slide back quite so quietly. Back in October 2011, I shredded my left menisc...

Re: Sunday's Run in the Rain

What was supposed to be a 13km run turned into 12km with a painful 1km walk at the end. I think I have the beginning of an injury. E-mailed the coach...and we'll figure out a gameplan. Could be that my comeback Fall Race Season may have to be my 2012 Spring Comeback Season. Oh well...I'm not gettin...

I will be registering for the 1/2 again and hopefully will not be flogging my bib due to injury. I am determined to crack a sub 2h 1/2 before I turn 55, so I have to get cracking. :roll:

Re: Holiday Monday

I do get the holiday, even though I live in Quebec - good negotiators at the hospital I guess :)
Plan is for 8 slow K on the treadmill at some point today, gotta shake the "I'm on holiday don't really feel like moving fast" feeling first.

I would like to say that I will do hip/core/buttock excercises this evening, but honesty says I probably won't - off now...

Re: What Are You Struggling With?

I struggle with mental, being injury prone, piriformis issues, too many irons in the fire - it's all a challenge, but when you hang in there and it clicks,

Re: BEST NEWS EVER.

Add to that the article I just read in "Psychology Today" which says that it is proven that a daily dose of red wine - not twenty litres mind you - is
proven to reduce belly fat and all the bad stuff that goes with having that spare tire. Cheers!
