McMillan pace calculator.<br><br>
Plug in the distance and the desired completion time and the pacing times will be returned not only for that distance for training and speed workouts to be run at in order to reach that objective:<br><br>
It's different than other pace calculator sites out there because of the latter feature providing an, "ex ante" view of the pace is required for the goal in mind:<br><br><a href="http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/mcmillanrunningcalculator.htm" target="_blank">http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/mcmil...calculator.htm</a><br><br>

Fizzeo:<br><br>
George Demirakos - MAA<br><br>
Massage therapists:<br><br>
my roommate (email me for details)<br>
Benjamin (MAA)<br>
Dimitri (MAA)<br>
(sorry can't spell the last names of the last 2... they are rather long and complicated).<br><br>
FYI: I like specialists that explain in technical terms (not laymen's terms) what is happening with my injuries... I like to know in the most detail possible what and how each strength or stretching exercises is doing and what my weaknesses are. So I absolutely cannot and hate seeing physios who say do this do that without giving me direct details down to the (bio)mechanics of movement. I do my homework and I expect to consult with them, not just have exercises prescribed. All of the above specialists fall under the (my) category of "consultable" specialists.<br><br>
Anyone have any more ?<br><br>

do you find yourself slipping and falling on your ass when it is icy??<br><br><br><br><br>
I say IceBugs!! These are cool.. my x-mas present that keeps giving.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.rei.com/product/758941" target="_blank">http://www.rei.com/product/758941</a><br><br>
.. and for the ladies.. price reduction! <a href="http://www.rei.com/product/741635" target="_blank">http://www.rei.com/product/741635</a><br><br><br><br>
I have scoured the web for good deals on these for about a year before I finally got them for x-mas, and I even got to try them on for size.. Good luck finding a price that suits you!<br><br>
I think you owe it to yourself for even thinking about running in these conditions.. and if it only saves you a few times.. every run!! Yeah, they really grip great!.. and something about the way ''Retractible carbide spikes'' seems to sound so cool, they sell themselves!!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

I'd like to add JEAN HAMELIN (Kinatex Snowdon) to my list of approachable, consultable physiotherapists who use the real names of the anatomy instead of saying leg, hip and thigh and have no problem explaining what they are looking for, why and how exactly each muscle/bone/tendon/ligament interacts to produce pain or pain-free motion.

Hi , I like the other dragon, see George at the MAA. I've seen in the past Hugo Rioux of Kinatex, he's the fizzio who helped me with my hip/pere problem..works with football players..cool gent.<br><br>
As for massage I've been going to Studio Bliss, 3841 St Laurent for a number of years. When he is available I see Mathew, if not, I've seen Veronique who has worked with hockey players in Europe or Mary Lyse who trained with someone that helped me many years ago.<br><br>
As with any massage, calling last minute not a good idea, and when you call make sure to give details as to what you are looking for, to avoid disappointment. Bliss also has yoga classes on the top floor of their business.<br><br>
I've referred people to Bliss and they were pleased, so I thought I would share.

Hey DF... Hugo is now at another Kinatex at Place Bonaventure, I pass by the clinic on my way home sometimes. A good option for the future (convenience).<br><br>
MICHELLE ROY at Kinatex Guy is also very very good. It really depends on what you are looking for. It's about finding someone with whom you have the right chemistry (haha) and someone who can communicate well with you. Textbook case injuries are usually either self-treatable or treatable by just about any certified physio. If you want more details about your injury or if you're looking further up the chain to correct the originating problem and want to find out how things work, the list gets smaller. Michelle Roy is one good physio for that one. But in my experience you have to work with any health professional who can easily communicate and can give you honest answers, even when they do not know.<br><br>
I've been working with a massage therapist/strength-conditioning specialist and it's a lot of trial and error but I've progressed further with him than with any other specialist I've consulted so far.<br><br>
Anyone have any other specialists to recommend?
