Re: Around the Bay - Who's in....

Came to visit the forum for the first time in ages to find out the answer to this question. :)

Ed and I are both in. This is going to be my first 30 km training run for Mississauga. And ATB #10!

Re: Its baaaack Thursday

Yippee!!! Very happy to report that on Tuesday I ran 6 km - first run since Boston. My calf felt absolutely normal, my knee less so. I won't call it pain but it was sort of "off". But so much better than it was. I wanted to run again this morning but had to be in the office by 8:00. Tomorr...

Re: Goodlife Toronto Marathon - BQ or Bust

What a fantastic race and I loved your report. The pictures are real keepers. Congratulations on toughing out that last 7 km - that takes an incredible amount of determination.

Have fun in Boston!!!

Re: Cinco de Mayo THURSDAY

Good luck in your race, Spirit! I have been pretty inconsistent this week, only making it to the gym twice so far. Both times I did several miles on the elliptical. I was tempted to start running again, but resisted. Next week I'll try to get in to see my ART/physio guy to work some more magic. :) H...

Thanks to travelling home the day after Boston, then working or having company since, I really haven't slept more than the minimum since the race. I am SO looking forward to having absolutel...

Re: David Suzuki's 30x30 Challenge for May

I like it! But...there's no realistic way I can accomplish it within those exact parameters. E.g.: a good way for me to get that 30 minutes is to minimize commuting time on public transit by walking instead. But that won't be in green space and by default my phone will be in my purse/bag. So I'm goi...

Nothing for me yet today. Going to go for a walk down by the Don River with my DH and my mother if I can get out of work at a reasonable time. TGIF (even though it's been a three-day week).

Re: High Five Thursday

Another rest day here. By now I'd normally have gone to the gym and at least done a little elliptical and some core work, but work is busy, and my mother is visiting, and so the routine is all out of sync. Oh well...none of that will last. :)

Re: Just in Time for Boston--There are cheaters in your mids

Apparently, there were around 3,300 fewer BQs this year than last. It's the second lowest percentage of BQs in the past decade with the 2012 heat-wave being the lowest. Curious how that would be factored in. Interesting. I'm not surprised to hear this, since almost everyone I talked to last night/t...

Thanks to the trackers! It was a hot day out in Boston and sometimes there was a headwind. I knew going in that I was injured and undertrained so this was purely a victory lap.
