Re: Montreal Marathon

I ran the Montreal Marathon is 2012 (first year it because a Rock N Roll event -- it is a fast course.... the second half if very quiet and lonely for sure. The only "incline" I remember is when you come off Ile Ste Helene and cross the bridge onto the Island of Montreal. It is very nice f...

Re: Sulphur Springs 50 Miler

Thanks everyone. It's been a few days and I'm still pretty sore, though quads are definitely improving. The arm is still pretty sore/swollen and the leg is all kinds of colours/swollen but healing well. I have an appointment with my chiropractor tomorrow and will get her to check it all out. I look...

Re: Replacing Mizuno Wave Elixirs

I was also in the Elixir's, and have been able to use the Kinvara 4's for the same type of running -- I have also used the Ronin's (but the old ones that are unfortunately discontinued as well) -- still available on some websites. I used all of these interchangeably for ultra training (when on road)...

Except that I have another 100-miler planned for Jan, and another for Aug -- I think 3 in that timeframe is enough -- my turn will come!! :D

Re: Grand 2 Grand Ultra

WOW -- that is absolutely amazing -- G2G is on my bucket list as well, but I will likely have to wait until I retire (or at least stop adding 100 milers to my roster!! :lol: )

Can't wait to follow along with your training!!

Cheers

February 2014 Training Goals

February will see me smack in the middle of my 100-miler training, so I should see mileage in the area of 250km -- and I really hope to get some x-training in as well (and yep shed more pounds). All of this in a short month! :shock: :D

Re: January 2014 Training Goals

Had lost my mojo, and finally got it back in mid-Jan so the month fell short of where I should have been, but at least now I'm "back in the saddle" :D

Re: 2014: Plans, Hopes and Aspirations

Will be running my 2nd 100 miler at Sulphur Springs -- looking to cut 3 hours off last year's time, so I don't think that will be too comfy!!

Also, am hoping to do a Try-a-Tri at the end of the summer -- the swim portion is WAY outside my comfort zone!! :shock:
