'Bent just met up with Alex Glenn, who is trying to set an FKT on the Bruce Trail. Now I can watch the SPOT tracker to see where 'Bent is running and whether he's working hard enough today. :)

Saturday Oct 22 #

10 AM

Running (Trail) 2:02:55 [3] 15.67 km (7:51 / km) +129m 7:32 / km
slept:5.75 shoes: Salomon Speedcross Pro

Browner and I went for a catch-up run around the HAFTA trails north of Milton on a spectacular, chilly autumn day. The peak colours were a few days ago but it was still gorgeous in there and my drive to Milton was amazing. The leaves hid some of the rocks and roots, and I managed to do a front dive into some rocks, landing hard, mostly on the lower palm of my left hand. OUCH!! Still waiting to see what all the repercussions will be, e.g. it really hurts to put on socks but I don't feel pain when I type on my laptop.

AdventureDog had a fantastic day that started with sprint intervals at the dog park with Scout and Contour, then he joined us for the run. The three pooches enjoyed a private party at Browner and STORM's place while we replenished our calories with a yummy brunch at Grill Daddy. Thanks for a fun Milton adventure, Browner!

Alexander Glenn, a 24-year-old ultrarunner from western Canada, is on Day 2 of his attempt to break Jim Willett's supported Bruce Trail FKT of 10 days, 14 hrs. He has done some ultras, including two Canadian Death Race finishes, but he has never hiked on the Bruce Trail. Unlike most BT record seekers, he has chosen to start in Queenston and head toward Tobermory. He is being supported by his Dad.

His first day was rainy, slick and tougher than expected. He covered 82 km but he is aiming for about 100 km per day in hopes of finishing the 900-ish km BT in 8.5 to 9 days.

You can watch his SPOT tracker and he has invited local runners to join him since he'd love some company on the trail.

Strength & Mobility (Core) 20:00 [2]

Hard Core Live with Caron

Power Yoga 53:00 [1]

C3 Class
4 PM

Running (Treadmill) 1:00:00 12.2 km (4:55 / km)
slept:6.5 shoes: Salomon S-Lab Speedcross

Tested out my ankle and my new S-Lab Speedcross on the treadmill with a few speed progressions. The shoes seem fine although it remains to be seen how I'll do in them over long distances compared to regular Speedcross. They have a lower drop, greater stability and no stitches inside for chafing. They only come in men's sizes though, so the fit is a bit different.

My ankle is not too bad but I can still feel the effects of the weird twist on Saturday - minor pain in random-seeming places. I guess my next test run should be on relatively easy trail.

Ah, that's more like it! :)

Tuesday Oct 18 #


Late to bed last night with lots to do, then my stoopid brain wouldn't let me fall asleep. There's nothing like needing to leave the house at 6 a.m. to make me stay awake all night worrying not getting sleep. Sigh. The good news is that BazingaDog's 6-week post-surgery X-ray looked fine today. He still isn't allowed to run for 6 more weeks but maybe we'll give him a little more freedom in the house at the 8-week mark. Other good news is that the vet hospital is only 5 km from Salomon Toronto. I splurged on new Snowcross (I've used mine a lot) and S-Lab Speedcross (different from regular Speedcross - an experiment).

Strength & Mobility (Boot Camp) 1:00:00 [4]

'Bent and I went to Boot Camp to let Caron kick our butts. Small class tonight with just Barrie and Jill so we chatted as we sweated.
10 AM


I feel like I've been going non-stop since mid-September. Just a little work left on Star Tracks and Wilderness Traverse before I can catch up on sleep and house tasks. Feeling zonked today but looking forward to an active autumn!
