    Now back to training.


    It’s been 28 days since the Ottawa Marathon and I’m pretty much back in the swing of things with regards to my running. Fives runs per week and 50km for each of the last two weeks.

    Last week I started an 8-week Speed in the Summer running clinic out on by the fine folks at K2JFitness in Ottawa. Judy Andrew Piel and J.R. Tremblay are the coaches and they been putting a group of about 20 of us through our paces on the track. There is nothing liked the shared misery of a tough track workout to make you a faster runner!

    Although the month after a marathon is supposed to be for recovery, I have done two 10km races. On June 6th I ran the Barrhaven 10km run in support of Roger’s House. Today was the Do it for Dad 10km race along the scenic Rideau Canal. This event was a fundraiser in the fight against prostate cancer.

    I’ll run a few more 10km races over the summer. The speed work will be good for me and make me a faster marathoner…..I hope! Only 132 days until the New York City marathon…
