Re: It's Saturday here in the Philippines.

13K for me on a beautiful morning here in Ottawa! It was about -7 with a nice clear sky and lots of sun. The sidewalks were a little lumpy and some of the snow was starting to loosen up, so it made the legs work a little more and I was feeling it towards the end of my run. All in all, a great way to...

Re: What- no Thursday Thread???

Easy 8K; there's something to be said for the "dry cold" of the prairies relative to the damp chilliness of the coast. Finding it a little cool the last few days, Ian? I can't wait until it warms up. I'm ok with -5 or so, but -10 and colder is too cold for me, I just can't warm up. A litt...

Re: Last day of the year!

10K on the treadmill for me. I would have loved to have been outdoors today as it warmed up quite a bit, but I also had babysitting duty. That said, anytime I can slog through 10K on the treadmill in my sauna like basement storage area is a good day :wink:

Have a safe New Years!

Re: Running snowshoes . . .

Cool, thanks for the feedback! I also prefer trail running so I thought that maybe it would be a way to keep on the trails in the winter. I do have regular snowshoes but they are far too large to run in with any degree of control. They would be great for hiking though so maybe I'll just stick with t...

Running snowshoes . . .

Hi everyone, Have any of you tried running snowshoes? If so, how do you find them? Are they large enough that they require a different stride than with normal running? Do you enjoy it? Is it hard to transition from normal running to snowshoe running? I'd like to try some runs on some trails this win...

Re: Sunny Saturday

10K for me this morning. I have to learn to stop worrying about my consistency and results when 30% of the route is clear, 30% is soft snow and ice and 30% is a plowed road with ridges all through it, LOL. I think this season is all about just getting out there and trying to keep mileage up.

Re: Snowy Thursday!

No running today, just two hours of shovelling snow, LOL. That will suffice for a non-running workout day :)

Re: Boxing Day Wesdnesday!

A nice easy 5K for me before dinner on some of the local neighbourhood streets. It was actually a really nice day out there today, about -10 and not too much wind. I love the freshness of the air at those temps!

Re: Christmas Eve Monday!

My first post, yeah!

I just did a small little 5K out there in the snow and ice. It was my first run in the snow this year and it actually reminded me how much more of a workout it can be when every single step you take you are slipping and sliding around.
