Easy 5

With the Sulphur 50K on Saturday its time to gear it down and take it easy.   Did a little 5Ker at a 6:00 pace on my meal break today.  Running slower seemed allot harder!!!  


Two Run Tuesday

 It was  a nice evening last night so I wanted to stretch the trail legs so I logged a little 4.8 Ker om the backyard trail....actually it was just an excuse to have a few Beers in the Hammock.   Black Fly's are starting to dissipate quickly being replaced by the Mosquito.

Sunday Speed

 12K logged on my meal break today.   Was going to do an extended " heart run" but the HR was lower today and it felt good so it ended up being a bit of a dry run for my upcoming 10Ker in a couple for weeks.   Started off at a 6:00 pace working my way up to a 5:00 pace over the first 2Ks.  Between 2 and 4K I worked up to a 4:45 pace and held until 5K where I cranked it up to a 4:30 pace then held it there until the 10K mark where I geared it down over then next 2Ks.   It all felt pretty good,  a little hot and a small tweak in the right calf otherwise A OK.

Busy Week

Turned around from mids Monday managing to squeeze in a little 5.6 Ker on the backyard trail.    Apres run was some classic rock in the hammock with a few beers ... fell asleep for about an hour.

Tuesday was a rest day of sorts ... painted  the very tall wall in my great room.  Lots of good leg exercise up and down ladders and the stairs.

Wednesday was a 20K Kayak trip on the Saugeen... more good cross training!  


















On Thursday it was back to the trails again logging another 5.6 Ker  looping in my forest.

It was super hot .. the HR sure climbed guess the body was working hard to keep cool...
