Thanks very much for the kind words. For the time being I'll lift weights and dust off the bike...can I drink my cup of Tim's while cycling? :roll:

Frustrating

For the third time this summer my calf is causing me a lot of grief. In June I was on an early evening run when I felt a sharp pain in my left calf, it was so bad that I had to completely stop my run and walk home. After 10 days or so of rest & ice, plus some accupuncture the leg felt ok so I di...

If I'm feeling a pain or what feels like an injury, I stop immediately (having tried to run through it in the past...wrong move). I really should practice what I preach. Yesterday I was having a good run, steady pace, beautiful weather and it was along my favourite route, by our waterfront. Around ...

After my 1/2 marathon in May I took a few weeks off. Since then I run 3-4 x/week usually 5-10k at a time. I don't do hills or speed work, although on my shorter runs I will run for "time" Most of my runs are steady, enjoyable runs just to get out and enjoy the weather. I personally find it tougher t...

If I'm feeling a pain or what feels like an injury, I stop immediately (having tried to run through it in the past...wrong move). If it's fatigue, sluggishness or laziness I take one of two approaches. There are days when I just don't have it, I try to keep going and give it my all but sometimes I h...
