I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

the 6ix

Toronto… TO… and my new running distance! Six!

I have a perfect course, well, it’s 5.85K and I make up the rest at the end – kinda sucks. I’ll be blogging about my 6K progress, and I promise to blog only if I better it! I ran three consecutive days, and was hoping for a sub 30 minute time today… I almost made it sub 29. I have a goal of 26:30, if I get 27 minutes (was running that fast in 2013), I’ll be stoked, but will continue pushing to go faster. It’s good to have goals… funny, as I was running Saturday, a elderly woman yelled out, “reach your goals”, as I was approaching her. I blew past her, and yelled back, “you betcha”! Great getting inspiration from unexpected people/places!

my sub five splits:

Christmas Day Fun Run!

… my first time running since November 1st, and considering poor conditioning… killed it!! I see so many daily runners in this mild winter weather, luckily being able to continue running/training throughout the year (me, w/my job makes it next to impossible), and am SO jealous… yet, they’re still slow-poking it? What’s up w/that shit?!

Chuffed as fuck w/my x-mas run… 15 minutes for 3K is only 2 minutes-ish from my PB… and w/regular sessions 13:30 would be easily attainable day after day! I’m also happy as hell w/negative splits (lungs began burning 400m in, lol)!

Thanksgiving Run!

6K + 6K

Yesterday + today! First time I ran in 13 days… worked 11 of the last 14 days – over 110 hours… good for the pocketbook, not so much for fast times on the pavement. Still getting shortchanged by Garmin, not that it matters (just sayin’), need new satellites tracking me. Times are well off 27 minutes of my old form, but I’ll take them. Actually, feels so good/refreshing using running muscles, even if only on the weekend. Hoping for 2 more good runs next weekend… then the following weekend, I’m off to Vancouver!! I can’t believe it’s almost here… am so stoked, can’t wait!

Solid 4K!

Garmin was generous today, I’ll take it… usually on the wrong end of the GPS stick! Seventeen and a half minutes, only twenty-five seconds off my PR! Splits were consistent too, although my 3rd surprised me – it’s hands down my fastest, but not today? Strange?! Oh, well, I blame the slight headwind, lol! Feels good laying down a good time! Chuffed!
