Back to Speed Work at Thompson Arena

Jenny and I, back from our Cruise-To-Run in the Caribbean, went to speed work with the Runner's Choice gang tonight. I did 12 x 600m at 2:30 per repeat with about 1:10 between each sprint. That's a 4:10/k pace or 6:42/mile. Jenny was just slightly off that pace at between 2:33 and 2:36 per 600 m. repeat (6:51 to 6:59/mile). I think next time I'll try to pace with her and step it up at the end.

Tempo run back in the Great White North

Jenny and I did 10 miles including 7 miles at tempo pace through the streets of Lucan tonight. The laps were 10:04, 8:53, 8:20, 8:21, 8:16, 8:14, 8:12, 8:20, 8:12 and 9:35. The weather was good -- about -3 C. with minimal wind. About half the roads were bare and dry, the other half was snow-covered and slippy.
