- Running in the spring
It can be hard to guess when the running in the trails will be good in the spring time around here. Today I went for a short trail run with Dot. It was a great time, but the running wasn’t so good. There was a lot of stopping and starting to pick a path around [...]
We had our first day in Italy where we could actually start relaxing and vacationing. Wednesday we arrived and just went to the hotel and crashed. Thursday we drove from Milan/Malpensa to Treviso. We had a bit of Autostrade drama… we didn’t get a biglietto for the autoroute when we entered and had a pretty [...]
- Ran 30 mins with my dog
Title says it all. I felt like crap, probably walked half of it. It was 28C. Went in the trails. I saw snow, but didn’t walk/run through any. It’s not too muddy back there either.
- Running with dogs is fun
I never get tired of running with dogs. It’s so simple and so fun. 30min with Dot today along the train tracks. Posted via email from 7thgroove’s posterous
- Gittin’ back into it…
I’m using this post to roll up three days of exercising in one. Friday I went for a 30min run. Saturday I rode my bike on the trainer for 30min and then went for a 30min ski. Today I woke up and my left knee was seized up — probably from the running. So, I [...]
- Grouse Grind
Today I did the famous Grouse Grind. I did not know it was famous, but it is. Brando has this year’s record, which is impressive at 28min something… The all-time official record is 26min something… Some guy from New Zealand has done it in 24mins something – that will make Geoff happy. I did it [...]
- A big day of Island life
Today I ran 45 minutes with Sheri and Julie. Then this evening I went to a park and did 1.5 hr of yoga. I kind of felt like a page of the lulu lemon website… outside doing yoga with a view of the ocean and snow capped mountains. Sheri set the pace on the run. [...]
- Another run run
We had a pizza party at Nick and Val’s last night. It was for Jessica’s 5th birthday. I ran there. It took 30 mins. I saw the ocean, the mountains of the sunshine coast and Powell River.
- 30 min run in Comox
I ran 30 mins today in Comox. Yesterday I went skim boarding in Kye Bay. I can’t really remember the last time I exercised. Its been a while. Might have been the last time I went riding with the club? Tonight I’m going to make some assless Prince pants with my niece. We’re going to [...]
- I’ve been doing some running…
Ran a couple of times since the last time I posted. But not consistently. Tomorrow is a big day in CHIN. I think I might run or ride tomorrow and then everything is gonna go to hell coz I have to go on another trip with the bike club. Yesterday I ran with Sheri and [...]
- Getting back at it
30 minute run in the woods today. After I don’t know how many days of complete inactivity. It felt really good to run again. Ran with Sheri, Dot and Rua.
- Rain in the woods
I ran for nearly one hour today – 50 minutes to be exact – with Sheri and Dot (the dog). It’s still not clear to me wether or not Dot is now our dog or still the neighbours. One this is clear to me however, Dot gets more exercise than any other pooch in Chelsea. [...]
Today was my last day of tuning up before I head off to Philly. I did a 30min trail run with Dot (dog). I thought it would be neat to compare and contrast my day with Jake’s. So here goes.
- A quickie with Dot
Today just may have been the busiest work day I’ve ever had! But it was fun. Anyhow it did mean I had no time to go for a ride, which I’m a bit choked about. I did get out for a run at the end of the day with Dot. I’m feeling really good on [...]
- Turning point
Today I ran 30mins in the wood with Dot (the dog) and Sheri. Until today Sheri has been fitter than me running. However, I think I’ve hit the turning point in my fitness. The long ride on the weekend did the trick and I’m getting fitter and fitter. I felt great, good flow.
- The flow was back today
30min run in the woods. I felt awesome. Went out late in the day with Dot. Talked to Bucker on the phone for a while today.
- 30 minute run
It was kinda rainy again today so I just went out for a 30min run again at the end of the day… with Dot the dog.
- Rainy run
It was raining today. I wanted to ride, but I don’t ride in the rain… because then I’ll have to wash my bike sooner. So I went for a 30min trail run with Sheri and Dot. Sheri runs a perfect pace.
- Guess what, today I ran
30 minutes in the woods, with Dot again. Yesterday I got sidetracked with life… I’m still struggling to get back into the routine after the trip to Georgia. I didn’t feel great today on the trail. And my ass is all tore up from one day of biking. You know, people always used to ask [...]
So today—as I was running through the woods with a dog again—I thought about what I miss the most about being fit. Flow. When you’re fit you can do things with a flow that isn’t there when you’re fat. Like today, I was plodding away all heavy and fat. I’m blown from the 11min uphill [...]
- Today I did cross training for Jake
30 min. run in the woods with Dot.
- Trail run late in the day
30min trail run with Dot… same thing I did yesterday. Same thing I’ll probably do tomorrow.
- Trail run
30 minute trail run today.
- More running with dogs
Today I did some more trail running with dogs. 30 minutes with Rua and Dot (Polka Dot). Today was a fantastic day. It was nearly 20C and sunny. I went running at the end of the day. I only wore a t-shirt up top and I could have worn shorts too, but I wore my [...]
- I just seem to run run
Well today was kind of overcast and rainy. So I went running again. I don’t mind getting wet when I run, and I don’t ever seem to get cold when I’m wet and running. So trail running was on the menu again today. Today I ran with Dot: Because for some reason she seems to [...]
- Trail running
Okay, I’m back from a run. It was my first trail run of the year. Before I left for Georgia there was still a fair bit of snow here. Now its all gone. That was the coolest thing about my trip, seeing how much home changed in ten days.
- Run run some more
Alright, I’ve missed a couple of days. Sue me. Got oot today for a 35min run run, exact same as the last run run. I’ve not twittered or blogged for a couple of days because I’m actually really busy. I have to: Draw some pictures, fix some content write a report, and clean up some [...]
- Run run
I’m developing a habit of exercising later in the day. I don’t like it, but today was no exception. I went out at 7PM. I ran 35 minutes… over to Ojai and up Musie to Ashley and back. Its the first time I ran the big hill. I felt all right, best I’ve felt on [...]
- First double day
Today I rode and ran. Started with a 35min trainer ride, similar to the others where I warmed up and then did two blocks at effort. A 15 min step: 5 min @ 180w then 5 min @ 190w then 5 min @ 205w. I rode easy 5 min and then did 10 min @ [...]
- A quick run
Beautiful day here in Ottawa. I kind of jones around for a lot of it, and got out for a quick 30min run around 5PM. Sheri went for her first ride today on her new cyclocross bike. Now she wants a brand new Colnago cx bike. Anyhow, it was 12C without a cloud in the [...]
- 30 Minute run
Today I went with Sheri to Eleanor’s house to look for Fuzzy—my dog soul mate—he’s been missing just over a day now and we’re thinking the worst. I snowshoed around the ravine for about 30-40 minutes postholing into deep soft heavy snow. I was a bit exhausted. We didn’t find Fuzz. I ran home along [...]
- It started yesterday
With a 24 min run. I don’t know how much I weigh. I dressed like a dork. Went out around 5PM. The sun was low in the sky. I Felt all right. I Ran north to the Larrimac Golf Club, and back. I couldn’t run up the hill to my house at the end. The [...]
