Running back to Saskatoon

May 21, 2013

Couldn’t help myself to those Guess Who lyrics as I fly out to Saskatoon on Thursday for the Saskatchewan Marathon. I will likely run the 10km there as a tempo workout on Sunday morning.

The Inferno has a website now (www.SpeedRiverInferno.com), check it out and come watch the races if you’re in the area.

I have a couple of workouts under my belt now and my body is feeling better each day. The next phase of my training will include reconnecting with some 5km and 10km speed.  For the past few weeks I’ve had the feeling that I have so much time before my next race and now all of a sudden it’s less than 5 weeks away. I don’t feel any pressure to force my workouts but I need to get into decent shape sooner than later.  I’m really excited about my summer race schedule.  After the Scotia Vancouver 1/2 I plan on racing the Boilermaker 15km (July 14) and the Falmouth 7 mile (August 11).  These races are stacked up front!

Here’s a video of the 1989 OFSAA Junior Boys 1500m (courtesy of Jason Bunston).  The video features Graham Hood who would, three years later, become the youngest competitor to qualify for the men’s Olympic 1500m final.

    In order to make your runs better and better your body should be able to perform its best. I have found a way to keep good shape without overtraining and without exhausting my body. Right nutrition is one of the key factors. Still, sometimes everyday meals can not provide all necessary nutrients. That is why I am taking nutritional supplements. As I am strongly opposed to all kinds of chemicals, I was looking for the natural supplement, consisting basically of vitamins. And I have found the one – Second Wind by Military Grade. This is new vegetarian post-workout supplement which increases muscles longevity and keeps me toned. This product helps muscles to recover quickly and reduces the soreness. It is available at amazon: h t t p ://www.amazon.com/Post-workout-Recovery-soreness-Vegetarian-Military/dp/B00HN6ROX0/ref=pd_bxgy_hpc_text_y
    Now I always feel prepared for my best runs.
