Ingersoll Harvest Run - Race Report
Yesterday I ran the Ingersoll Harvest Run 10K. It was a much smaller race than I’ve been used to running, with only 80 finishers in the 10K race. Because of this, I was pretty nervous going into the race that I might finish DFL (dead ;) last). By law, the smaller the race, the fewer of us slower runners there are. However, the run went really well for me, and I was really happy to finish...
Well good news, I kept the drinking to just 1 alcoholic drink and 2 waters. 9 hours til gun start, I better get some sleep!
I just walked into a restaurant/bar that has fancy long island iced teas on special tonight. I race tomorrow morning. I do not want to finish DFL! Major dilemma!
I made a horrible mistake tonight. I went out for the evening wearing shoes that have been known to give me blisters, and they sure did! Can blisters heal in 31 hours? I have a race to run.
I lost 1 lb this week! It’s been a slow few weeks in the weight loss dept. So a full pound is much appreciated! That brings me to 39 lbs lost total!
Compulsive race signer-upper here
I signed up for one of the Toronto Women’s races today. It’s a 5K, 2 weeks after my half marathon. I figure it will be a good test to see where I’m at with my 5K time. So far 4 of us from the work running crew have signed up, it’s going to be awesome! I’ve been wanting to do one of the TO Women’s races for a while, mostly for the chocolate and shirtless firemen...
Ran a 6.5K commuter run after work. I love how running towards home after work saves me time, but I end up hitting so many more lights than on a route I would plan out otherwise. Oh well, it’s a good option for nights I’m wanting to get home but still get my run in!
Not much to say about this morning’s run except that I got it done. 13k, check! 8 weeks til half marathon time!
1 Mile Test
August 20, 2011: 9:07 July 6, 2011: 9:33 ~May 2011: 9:45
Ran 5K after work tonight with the CCS crew. It was a decent run, but my legs are tired, 35k and 2 strength training session in 6 days and my legs need a break! Tomorrow is a real rest day!
So the schedule tonight called for a easy pace 5K, first run post-race. The running crew was sparse tonight between vacations, and bailers still sore from the race, so I decided to plan my own route to help save me some time tonight. Anticipating the lack of team effort tonight, I brought my small backpack with just my essentails in it, and decided to run bascially along the subway route for 5K,...
Acura 10 Miler - Race Report
This morning I ran the Acura 10 Miler, starting and finishing in the Distillery District in Toronto. This race was sort of special to me for a couple of reasons, starting with it being my longest run to date, but more importantly it fell on what would have been my dad’s 62nd birthday. My dad passed away 11 years ago from cancer though, and this race was supporting the Canadian Cancer...
The time has come… 10 miler, I’m coming for you!
Well I did my first run with the Garmin tonight. I was actually pretty frustrated because after waiting almost 10 minutes it couldn’t find a signal, so I just went ahead with my run and about half a K in it finally found the signal. Anyways, just a short run tonight, last one before race day Sunday! I’m really anxious for Sunday to get here and the race to get started. I find about 3...
Burrito Boyz and Beer 4 days before a race is totally carb loading right?
I’m kind of starting to be over tumblr, again, because I can’t comment on anyone’s posts all I can do is give it a heart. Big deal. Am I missing something? Isn’t the whole point of blogging having people comment and interact with you?
Erica's Wish 10K race report
This morning I ran in Erica’s Wish 10K, starting in Erindale Park, Mississauga and following the Culham Trail along the Credit Valley River, 5K out, and 5K back. My goals for this race were to just take it easy and treat this as a training and prep race before next weekend’s 10 mile race. When I went to leave my house I saw how bad it was raining and ran back upstairs to grab my hat....
I know I shouldn’t, but I get irked when I go to pick up my race kit and get asked if it’s my first race… Every time. I’m pretty sure my love handles are being judged. Then I get over it and tell them, nah, this is just a training run for my half marathon.
Yesterday I mentioned the 3 slab cakes in the office, today it’s a freezer full of ice cream bars. Seriously!?!?
August is going to be a busy one with races 3/4 weekends. Can’t wait! Aug 7th I’ll be running Erica’s Wish 10K in Mississauga. Aug 14th will be the big one I’ve been training for, the Acura 10 miler (16K) in Toronto. Then a weekend off from racing and Aug 28th I’ll be running the Ingersoll Harvest Run, 10K, in Ingersoll. It’s going to be a fun month!
There were no less than 3 giant slab cakes in the office today. Fml.
Not a lot of time to post right now, but let me just say, I totally redeemed myself after yesterdays failRun. Showed 10 miles who’s boss tonight. Longest run to date, and decent time considering it was a LSD training run. Now to taper for the Acura 10 miler. (Oh, and I might run a race this weekend too, but totally won’t push it, treating it like a trainer. I also may chicken out and...
Today’s run was pretty much a giant fail. I was supposed to do my last LSD before the Acura 10 miler in 2 weeks, but what was supposed to be 16K ended after just 3K. My body was just not having it. I knew before I left it wasn’t going to be a joyous run, my stomach is still unsettled after a week in Cuba, it was still quite hot out, and I was feeling just all around tired, and slightly...
