Well I had a cold that knocked me on my ass for way too long. On the plus side, it left me with some time to cobble together a little post. It’s a continuation of my beginner’s series that you can blame on Shay-lon. Now let me start off with this disclaimer: I have no… Continue reading Form: the Expression of Function
This week the wheels came off the fitness train. My foot was still feeling really sore after my date with gravity so running seemed like a bad idea. Then having to unexpectedly run Piper to the vet first thing in the morning really upset any work-out plans for Tuesday. Somehow she developed an abscess on her… Continue reading Summary – December 12-18
So you’ve decided to start on this journey and you’ve set out your reasons for it (remember you were honest with yourself about it). So where do you go from here (assuming you’ve already gone to see a doctor and gotten their approval, especially if it’s been a while, or never, that you’ve done any… Continue reading Now What?
OK folks, I have finally sat my backside down for my report on the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. This was supposed to be my redemption run as last year’s was disappointing for me as I completely missed my time goal. The fact that I had received a concussion and couldn’t train for two months had been… Continue reading Race Report (a bit late)
My previous post and the comments that I received (thank you everyone who commented which makes this whole blogging thing so much more fun) got me to thinking. Kit is one thing, but what about the other things? Like what would I do differently or what went well? I am not an expert. I have… Continue reading If I Knew Then What I Know Now…
Huh. I just realized this was still sitting in my draft folder. A little late but never I suppose… And now we rejoin our tale on September 11, 2016, the day after I completed my first ultra marathon: When I woke up the next morning…well that implies that I was actually sleeping. To be honest,… Continue reading The Aftermath
So here is my report on the Ultra Trail Harricana which I ran on Saturday September 10, 2016. It’s going to be real and gritty: the good, the bad, and the shitty. It was a pretty surreal experience and took me a few days to try and make sense of it all. When the alarm… Continue reading And Here. We. Go.
Well I’m sitting in a B and B in La Malbaie, Quebec, a small town just over an hour outside of Quebec City. Tick tock goes the clock…But first a little bit of information. This week I have barely even had time to look at the treadmill never mind get on one but I’m not… Continue reading Tick Tock Goes the Clock
I was still feeling wiped from my Saturday run so Monday I took it easy to recoup. Then Tuesday I was all set to go for a run once the heat died down but a massive thunderstorm swept in to kill that plan so I spent an hour on the elliptical and did some weights. … Continue reading Summary August 29 – September 4
This sight made me stop as I was dosing out my homemade drink while I was preparing for a run. The large bag of white powder, the scale, baggies, spoon… I guess some might say it’s how I’m fuelling my addiction, although I don’t really think running is an addiction for me. I would never… Continue reading It’s Not What it Looks Like…
