Re: Sunny Saturday

Well I'm supposed to be Mon/Wed/Fri and ended up with just Mon/Sat this week. :/ And today sucked. I supposedly did 6.8km and my garmin is acting very strangely ever since I was playing with setting at the navigation course a few weeks ago so I need to figure out what I've messed up on there. Anyway...

I didn't run today. Will do it tomorrow. Had a crappy sleep last night and tried to go back to bed but still couldn't sleep. :/

Re: (Not so) Melting Monday

I ran 5km and it sucked. Slow and felt crappy. It's not nearly as warm here today either, as it's overcast and breezy.

Re: This happens right?

how hard were you running? I've heard of this with people running super hard. I've never had it happen, but I'm not competitive and run slowly for long distance instead of hard for short distances. I'm also the opposite... once I start running, my bowels, etc, shut down... I almost never need to use...

Re: 4th of July TUESDAY

I'm sore from my 5km run yesterday. That's how out of shape I am. :lol: :lol:

Re: Hot Monday

5km! My first mon/wed/fri July commitment run, and also my first run since my ankle sprain a week ago. I was feeling the ankle a little but not bad. Will see how it responds tonight. Run was a little slow but I didn't walk, only stopped for a second to snap a pic. Lovely day and I needed the stress ...

Re: Slippery Saturday . . .

Haven't run in weeks, but I spent Saturday in the mountains, at a mountain navigation course (map and compass stuff). It was really good, because I'm so dependent on my GPS... this was all about learning the skills for what to do without a GPS... we spent the day practicing locating ourselves, plott...

Re: Late Monday Thread

I'm late to this thread, but on that day I took my mom and brother on a mini-hike to Quarry rock. My mom is pretty out of shape so it was a challenge for her, but it was a lovely day and the view at the top is good. :)

Re: Cloudless Monday

Hot again today! I met some friends at 7:30am to do BCMC. We went to the top and they took the tram down while I continued on: down mountain highway to St Georges trail and then down that back to town, then to home. It was 17km by Garmin, though Strava always shorts me in the conversion and says 15k...

Re: Wilting Wednesday . . .

A little over 8km for me. It was largely hiking, more than running... tough section of trail, then popped out on pavement for the last bit to home.

Favourite Apps for running, health, etc?

Let's compile them here! Obviously there's Strava (for anyone unaware, we have an RM club on Strava too!). Also, some of my faves: Pact - pays me to hit 10,000 steps/day and track my food, charges me if I don't. The amount I GET paid is minuscule, but the amount I get penalized if I miss my targets ...

the perfect hippy shoe

have you guys seen these?

couldn't run in them, I'd imagine, but they probably WOULD be good for running around from boat to beach....

Re: Future of RM

Now we have to start using them regularly!

Do we have an Ottawa/Toronto volunteer? Someone who can cover the June m&g but also be an ongoing local ambassador for social media in Ontario?
