good 17


good 17km run at a good pace, even though the last two, especially the last one, kilometers were very slow. I went out not kno0wing how much I would run. At first i though long, maybe more than 18, then thought to keep it short, maybe 12 or even 8km. So I just ran and figured I would figure it out as I go along. I felt fine, so just kept going, and kept extending it more and more. Eventually I figured I would finish at 15, 16km.. when I was approaching the end I realized I would break 16, so I extended it a bit to hit 17km, even though that was a lousy final km.

great 8


I wanted to run 10-12km today but got a late start and knew I wouldnt have time for that, so I settled for 8km. I ran hard and at a very good pace. Temps are heating up and though it was warm when I was out, it was still fairly pleasant

very good 6


didnt get out early today, after a late night last night. Thought I wouldnt run today due to timing, but some time cleared up late morning and I got out. But man was it hot. Had a good 6km run at a very good pace. I love running in the sun and heat, but it is tough.

not lousy 6


typical lousy Motzash run - slow, disjointed, bit of a struggle... but it wasnt really lousy. it was all the above for 6km but it wasnt horrible.

very good 17


didnt know how much I would run today. Was waffling between a short 6km, a long run and a medium run as options - basically everything was wide open. Even once I started I didnt know, but as I approached 6 I decided to keep going and on to my 10ish route. Once I was headed up along the edge of RBS C on Eliyahu Hanavi St, I decided I would run it to the end and then down to 375 and back to RBS on the 10. That brought me to 17, and it was at a good pace.

hot 7


I was not going to run today, but my schedule changed, so I allowed myself the luxury. It was so hot, even early. The heat was overwhelming. I had a good 7km run at a good pace, but it was tough and I had to stop multiple times for a few moments.

hot 6.5


wow, that was hot. something like 32-35c, about 90-95f. It was a good run but the heat was tough. 6.5km at a good pace.

The heat tomorrow will be worse, but tomorrow won't be a running day because of my schedule, which is why i ran today

Motzash 6.5


had an ok run tonight, decent for a Motzash. Slow but I went out expecting that. Ran a little further than expected, at 6.5km.

bleary 10


I wanted to get a nice long run in today but it was not meant to be. I was feeling lousy, both from overeating yesterday and from some really bad hayfever this morning.

I struggled through 10km. Even though I ran it at a good pace overall, it was a struggle the entire way with me eyes, noses and throat all burning plus feeling wiped and out of sync.

Just one of those days

great 10


great 10km run. i got tired a few times and winded so stopped for brief breaks. I think I suffered from the heat as I got out to run later than planned, and it is really warming up now. Despite that I had a great 10km run at a great pace, and I love running in the sun.

great 6km run. Weather is getting warmer and it was beautiful out when I ran. I felt great, ran hard, really pushed, and had a great run at a great pace.

good 7


I haven't taken much of a liking yet to these new Brooks shoes I'm wearing. But I ran in them today and had a good 7km run in nice overall weather but with a cold wind.

good 13


this was a bad week of running for me - ie, I havent really run this week. Bad timing, busy work week and some other stuff happening. I got out today and didn't know what to expect. Missing 5 or 6 days of running is really not a big deal, but you do get out of rhythm. 

The 13km run was good and at a good pace, but at times I felt winded and it also felt like I was favoring one leg mroe than the other and it was feeling overworked at times. that usually means bad form, but the pace was good despite that which is unusual, as bad form also usually means slower pace. I couldn't really correct it so I just pushed through. I had to stop a few times, for phone calls, as I saw an old running friend getting off his bike, and one or two others, but overall it was a good run.

good 12.5


good 12.5km run. wanted to run this morning but it didnt work out. then I thought it was too cold and windy and was expected to rain. Then I just went out. It actually rained the last 3 or so kilometers of my run, but only a light rain. not unpleasant at all.

I got in 12.5km at a good pace. was a bit windy and overcast, with, as mentioned, a light rain for part of the run.

 Brooks 8

after officially retiring my ON shoes, I figured today would be a good day to start breaking in my new pair of running shoes -a pair of Brooks Launch 8. I figured today will be a short and low intensity run, so it would be good to see how it feels and start breaking them in.

They felt fine. The run was good, 6.5km at a good pace. Beautiful weather but very windy.
