Damn not a good day, I felt a bit crap because of poor eating, but I kicked me out of the house to do some running.
Many little annoyances during my run: first I felt a small but quite painful contracture in my left buttock after only 20 minutes, just starting to play offtracks (I guess I wasn't sufficiently warmed up) - almost makes me quit, I just had to stop, walk slowly uphilll, then began to run slowly downhill without pain - and it passes. 20 minutes after a small gravel in my left shoe started to severely bugged me, plus I felt my toes scratching against the shoes. Stopped again, remove the gravel, lace my shoes more tightly. 5 minutes later I stumbled upon John doing some O walking, chatted for 10 minutes (of course not an annoyance), but then I had to start again cold. At the end of my session, I noticed a small glitch in the the tread on my right shoe. Crap. Crap, crap, crap.

Lazy week after the race sunday. I figured it was time to do something. The one wonderful thing at the University is this big playing field right beneath it called 'Mount Royal'. Some steep hills should do the trick, so I said to myself. Sure there is some steep hills. I went for 30" uphill at fast as possible, 1'00 rest and downhill to restart, two series of 8 laps. Perhaps the slope was too steep, as I was barely running at the top, and going down was not especially restful.
