5 - 5 minute repeats yesterday was on the menu during track workout yesterday. We ran at a 4min/km pace and my running partner and I exchanged leads. We were able to complete each repeat without too much difficulty. I'd rate it an 8 on 10 in terms of difficulty.
Nice seeing DF yesterday. Keep up the good work.
Ran for a reovery run this morning for 30min and stretched. Ah... that felt good.
Since MDS Nordion (One of the MDS companies) sponors the 5 and 10 km races at the Ottawa marathon all employees who raise at least $150 for the Ottawa Hospital get their registration fee covered and a chance to win a a nights lodging at the Holiday inn Select.
a little over 4.5 miles for me in 41 minutes at 4:30 a.m. this morning around the hood.
Yeah, the 6hr was just a short training session for her (I think she also owns or works in PegasusXRunning, Laval, sponsors of the 6hr runs) there was another guy there heading off for the MdS too, I forget his name. Crazy bastards
Zero mileage for me since the weekend and a big fat zilch today, I'm struggling to get out there midweek but at least I'm still getting my long-runs in. And on that note... I picked up my Crosslite's today
Her and her husband Renato own the Pegasus in Laval. I only checked the web site when a little birdy told me they were there. That is my ultimate dream race. I'm gonna have to go back to the store and pick up yet another pair of socks to hear about their adventure.
I'm going to try another run on the mountain early Saturday morning.
Alright.. I doubt I will be running that distance with everyone, but I guess I will try and get up there and check out the course! Disc Course!.. haha Who knows though.. I would rather run a long trail race than a marathon.. One of these days at least.
I am really suprised at the great turn out that KZ is getting from his friends at work! What a salesman, right? It is that big smile, I know it!
It is great to see all the activity with everyone!
Roly.. I should be ready for Either mountain real soon. Let's get a plan. Maybe a few others will join us.. ok!
Hey Truxx !
Roly and me we're doing the half, considering that the race is in 3 months... I'm pretty sure you can prepare without any problems. As for the disc course... I did'nt know that there was one in Tremblant. But sure enough this year we're going to try the course in mt-Avalanche. They open around mid june.
I won't say a word...**** we are going to need more beer. Reminder to self..don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt,don't get hurt, ect..............!
Tempo run for me this morning. It was supposed to be around 35 minutes at "comfortably hard", but I shut it down after 20 minutes. I tacked on one set of 4x400m's (90 seconds on, 90 seconds off) before warming down.
Nice, Gro! 50K?
Truxx, good to hear from you!
*big smile* you should sign up for Tremblant EVERYBODY'S doing it *big smile*

"Good Morning Roly,
I will be launching a promotion for the summer series of Les Courses en Foret later this week. This will be a 2009 only promotion that the racers can experience for themself how fun the Course en foret series will be.
Essentially, all registered particpants to the Tremblant race of the Ultimate Xc will have the opportunity with their registration code to have a FREE entry to the May 9th race in Victoriaville either for thr 5km or the 10km. This will be the perfect training run for the the June race.
This will be limited to the first 200 racers. I want to make sure that you have the info before it sells out. If it's something that you and a few friends are interested in, let me know and I will pe enter your name to make sure you have a spot in Victoriaville for May 9th.
The confirmation # that you got when you registered to tremblant will be the # that you will need to register to victoriaville race on may 9th for FREE.
I am having the registration for for the victoriaville modified with a field for the code later today
None of our courses are on easy terrain, however the mission of Course en Foret is to introduce runners to the world of Trail running.Therefore it will be a prefect start of the season event in a civilised way.
On the other hand, Ultimate Xc has a mission to challenge the fittest.
