Re: Toronto Goodlife - course changes?

I am taking a long shot at a PB on this course... that being said I am tempted to do an event this weekend in my home town and the half is really calling my name. Would the 10k be smarter knowing that this will only be a week away?

Re: compression socks

I have seen a combo of sleeve and sock too where it is almost a styrup at the bottom near the foot so there is still compression in the ankle area but not on the foot. I am more interested in these for recovery or as pre run regime. I like the more "free" and "natural" feel of my...

Jitters

It starts about a week before. I start thinking about tripping on rocks, any odd cracks in pavement that could injure an ankle. I check the pedals extra carefully on the spin bikes just in case its slightly off and injures my knee or ankle. A few days later this paranoia subsides and then the "...

Re: Saturday Return To Running

Its been an interesting start to the day thats for sure. Plans got shifted around but I decided to go for a 5k. Let me tell ya, it was not good. I felt like I weighed 500 pounds plus my actual body weight. I was feeling down about how bad my body felt but got some thinking time in. When I returned h...
