Strength 30:00 [0]
ahr:97 max:133

Weights session 1. An evening lift works better for me now I run in the morning, but the gym is totally rammed with idiots. Boo.

Downtown Ottawa map with poorly hand drawn route here:

Not easy to see but basically - if Jeff does this for real, go! It's great!

Control count (now up to date): 352/2000

Ian's mega opus at Norwottuck. I didn't eat enough breakfast and the whole thing was a struggle. It was very hilly.

Just did Quickroute - I had no idea I was so ridiculous on the way to number one. Really very poor. Some great route choices though but need to do some hill work over the winter.

Didn't train yesterday, lab day started early and went well on into the dark. No work for Saturday though now, so it was worth it.

Maps now up for the weekend - scroll down to Sat & Sunday to see.

Also, the super devious London City Race is here:

As you can see, the Garmin doesn't cope well with covered passages or multi levels at all! I was bad, but not THAT bad!

Control count (not including Jeff's course on Monday, including all Tarrywile controls once only): 307/2000
8 AM

Running 47:39 intensity: (2:40 @1) + (11:04 @2) + (25:56 @3) + (4:24 @4) + (3:35 @5) 8.36 km (5:42 / km) +83m 5:26 / km
ahr:158 max:191 shoes: Grey Saucony Excursion

Intervals! The first proper session of a long winter, so a nice ease in. 15 mins warm up, strides, 4 x 400m with 75 seconds rest. First one was a bit slow, was feeling the moves from yesterday, and then it just clicked. Three well paced, consistent and strong feeling reps. Then a warm down, but I was in a bit of a hurry to get to a meeting so skipped stretching. And to think I almost didn't go out this morning!

Has anyone seen maps online from anyone for course 7 at the weekend? I really should analyse sooner rather than later...

Strength 28:00 [0]
ahr:108 max:146

A wee intro back to strength. Ten mins cross trainer, some olympic moves, and then back squats, weighted press ups, CG pull ups and hamstring curls.
7 AM

Running 44:30 intensity: (8:54 @1) + (12:11 @2) + (23:25 @3) 6.63 km (6:43 / km) +207m 5:49 / km
ahr:149 max:166 shoes: Grey Saucony Excursion

Hilly rolling run early this morning. Despite it being not quite light out, I felt great, strong and easy and alive for the first time on a morning run in ages. Massively uplifting, great feeling.

The two races I ran in Ottawa were great. I was not good in the first and I was much better in the second. I also broke my Garmin strap and left at least one of my maps at Jeff's house, so will update on the weekend once Route Gadget appears. Thanks to everyone though - definitely worth the long trip, even for only half the races. I also enjoyed exploring Ottawa, using both Jeff's sprint map (very good) and going to the Canada Hall at the Museum of Civilisation. The Vikings made it to Canada, who knew?! (Probably shoe clone, if anyone who reads my log does).


So, I just got a cheque in the post for $820, quite a substantial amount. I puzzled over its origin for a long time, and then realised - it's for the money that Rob "transferred" to my Bank of America account from his Bank of America account online at some point last week.

This is the most retarded thing I have come across in a very, very long time.
