Merry Christmas

As I wait for the cheesecake to bake, and prepare the massive amount of food that is Christmas, I'm thinking of the people in my life that make life, great! Wishing you and yours a very, merry Christmas, and a new year full of promise and adventure.

Wherever you are, from my kitchen to yours, Merry Christmas!

Tuesday Run

I was saving this for Christmas, but those who want to know, want it now!  Here is a first training program for ATB and spring events.  Also posted on the blog down the right side for future reference.

Winter Spring 2013

Because the training program is out, and hills begin in January, you may want to consider the uphill battle now.  Suggested route tonight.

  • Eastwood to woodbine, cross to Glenmount
  • Up Glenmount to Gerrard.  
  • For more hills, turn left and make you way up and down back to Occasions.
  • For more hills AND longer run, turn right to Main, south to Kingston, cross to Williamson, Left and across the bridge, up the pines, make your way back.

OH, and if you see Rob Ford, don't try to stop him.  He will not yield.

Saturday Run

A request for the north Toronto route, in case of rain, which there is some certainty of, go up glen to summerhill and over the bridge instead of the ravine.

Happy weekend, happy TIFF!

Tuesday Run

4 x 800, 6 x 400, choose your poison. I understand the track and monarch has been under construction, so I guess you may be going to the other one? I will be at teh gym, if anyone is interested in that!

And I have a question. What attracts you to a race? if it is the cause what is it that attracts you? if it is the bling, what about it? the shirt, the medal. the meal? What? Location? route? routine of always doing it? Group think? what would draw you to a race, cause you to sign up, convince you to race?

Any feedback is good feedback, I would love to hear your thoughts!

It's Tuesday, and its Breda's Birthday!

Another stinking hot day, yet a beautiful, perfectly summer day.  A stellar day to celebrate a stellar lady - Breda Mcleod.  Today is Breda's birthday.  And its a BIG one!  

Breda, I know you can't be at Occasions today, but we can't let the day go by without celebrating YOU!  

Breda, you are a Leo and a Dragon, with a Ruby birthstone.  Power and beauty personified!  You like to surround yourself with plenty of happy people.  Clearly. You possess a remarkable athletic grace that is the envy of many.  Vigorous exercise is a favorite pastime for you, but is not a constant factor.  In other words, you, like the rest of us, run for the beer.

You have a natural talent for making money.  You embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and are always looking for an exciting new opportunity.  If you have one wish, it is that you are able to shine via the force of your personality.  You are a shining stellar Breda!

Breda, your birthday resolutions will have more power than usual this year, so think hard about what it is you most wish to accomplish then promise yourself that you will make it happen.  Do something special every single day.

Breda, on behalf of all stellars, have a FABULOUS DAY TODAY!

As for the rest, the schedules have 6x400's for some, 6 hills for others.  For Saturday it looks like you are running anywhere between 16-27k.  Below is a suggested route.  Have a fabulous week!

Time To Reignite!

Lame coach one and lamer coach two have been talking.  While we are leading the charge on injury. excuses, wining, whining and dining, we need to pick up our casts and tensors and kick start the stellar butts into gear.  And now that I am sitting around more than I'm used to, I'm bored.

I am taking back the keyboard.  To complete the task, I need to know what your plans are.  Any race goals this summer and fall? Midnight Summer run in August?  Trail runs?  Sam has a schedule, Shelley, Tod and Steve have a schedule, anyone else have one? want one? How about Aberg?  Is there a schedule or do yo need one?

Let me know what you would like to do over the summer, and we will get you the routes and workouts.  We may not be running with you for now, but we can help you stay on track.

And speaking of goals, here's something to think about.  Some of us are talking about Berlin, in the fall of 2013.  Far enough away to plan, could be a fabulous stellar trip!Fff
