Gym for me, too. It's gross and yucky here today. 30-min run on the TM planned.

Good workout for me this morning- trying to sharpen up a bit for the Batawa Fat Ass 25K next weekend.

3km warm up, 2 x 350m hills, 2 x 5 mins at 10K race pace, 2 km cool down.
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

Morning! Rest day! I'm already antsy. I think 2 more days of this might send me to the edge of sanity. Trusting that it will make the legs ready to go on race day though! I read Lanni Marchant's Scotia race report, and if resting from Thurs - Sat is good enough for her - and she has an amazing race - it's good enough for me!

Good luck Sylvie!

Raining here, will likely rest (other than the pup walk post-trickortreaters)
When your legs get tired, run with your heart.

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

Spin class this evening and then home to hand out candy. Happy Halloween!!

I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise...it's a consistent reward for victory!

Happy because I was able to send off a whole bunch of files today. Crossing my fingers the feedback doesn't involve a whole lot of changes, ha ha. It is incredibly frustrating when people come up with stuff at the last minute, especially when they've already been asked for their input a long time before. But juggling it all is what pays the bills, so...

Unplanned rest day for me. It was supposed to be a gym day but I just didn't feel like getting up after staying up too late and then falling asleep on the couch with a cat asleep on me... My knee feels much more normal today, just a couple of twinges this morning and nothing since. As I was going down the stairs to the subway last night after work, I remembered that a couple of days before some wannabe-race-car-driver on the TTC was starting and stopping very abruptly, and at one point I literally almost hit the floor, was swaying from one of the straps and almost couldn't hold on. So I'm wondering if that torqued my knee and it's taken a couple of days to recover. Planning a TM run for tomorrow morning and hoping it's all good again. :)

Best wishes to everyone racing Hamilton, New York and anywhere else this weekend! Many of you will be travelling tomorrow, so safe travel wishes to all.
