Yesterday I did 6.5km at an easy pace. Today I'll run around 10km.

Yeah, that was us. We didn't see you, where were you?

We ran a total of 18.5km. It was supposed to be an even 20, but it was too hot out.

I was running north on Colonel By at that point. It was somewhere between Lansdowne and the Pretoria bridge.

It was really hot. It took sheer willpower to keep going once I got past 11k.

So did I! Todd took some pics of it and I was going to post them in my training journal.

Thanks. :) Next weekend... 16. :shock:

Wendy and I did hills tonight. It's been ages since either of us have done a hill workout, so we took it easy and only did thre repeats (although it was on a long hill). Total distance for the run was 7.6km.

Yesterday we didn't get out for our run until after 8pm, so we ended up doing 15km and we're hoping to do 30-ish today. But this morning I woke up with alot of pain in my upper back and neck, probably from packing yesterday morning. So I might or might not get out for a run today. We'll see.

This afternoon I went out for about 8km on my own. I just ran to the high school track and did laps without keeping track of my distance or pace or anything. It's kinda nice sometimes to just space out, let the mind wander, and just run.

I forgot to mention that yesterday I went to the shoe store to buy a new pair of running shoes. I've worn four previous pairs of Mizuno Precisions, and I wanted to try some other shoes to make sure that I was in the best fitting shoe for me. After trying on just about every other neutral shoe in the store, I confirmed that the Precisions are the right shoes for me and bought my fifth pair.

So you're saying it was painful to type, but you weren't too sore to run 8k? :wink: I'm glad it sounds like you're feeling a bit better. :)

I really wish the pair I've been wearing was still available for sale. :( I still haven't taken my new pair outside yet because I'm afraid of not being able to return them if they aren't right. :(

I went out for a 10km run this evening, but started to feel really hungry partway through so I cut it short to about 5.5. Nice and fast though.

I might have missed posting a couple runs here and there over the last couple of weeks. I just moved to a new house, and things have been very busy with that and work and other stuff going on right now. Wendy and I are running a 100 mile race this weekend, for which we are both severely undertrained (<150km in all of August!). But that's ok, we're just running to finish, nothing more.

Yesterday I did a short run around my new neighbourhood for the first time. It'll be a big change running different routes all the sudden. But about twenty minutes into my run, I ran into a running buddy of mine that I've trained with in the past. Turns out he lives just down the road from me.

I hardly ever see anyone running in our neighbourhood. It's nice to know there are a few people around doing it. :) That's one reason why I like going down to the canal periodically... I really enjoy the camaraderie with the other runners.

Let me know if you stumble across any hills or anything I might have missed. :?

Wendy and I ran the Haliburton Forest 100 mile race this weekend. We both finished, but it didn't go exactly as planned. At the finish line Wendy was pretty badly dehydrated and had to be brought to emergency. She's doing better now. We've learnt alot of lessons from this race. I'll write up a longer report sometime soon.
