Monday night run

Bon début de semaine

Last week of May already people!

Lundi soir, soir d’entraînement régulier. Me voici bien équipée pour un petit 6 km.

Monday night, regular training evening. Here I am fully equipped for a short 6km run.


J’avais l’air bien en forme et prête à affronter n’importe quoi. Sauf mes nouveaux Brooks Purecadence à en juger par mon état après la course…

I looked top shape and ready to tackle anything. Except my new Brooks Purecadence considering how I looked after the run…


La ligne PureProject de Brooks offre des souliers de type un peu plus minimaliste que le soulier de course standard. Il est très léger, souple, offre moins de support et a beaucoup moins de semelle. Il est donc parfait pour courir plus vite, mais demande aussi davantage d’effort musculaire.

The Brooks PureProject collection offers shoes with caracteristics closer to the minimalist shoe than the standard running shoe. It is lightweight, flexible, offers less support and a less massive sole. It’s designed for short fast runs and demands greater muscular effort.

Une autre course prévue ce soir, espérons que les orages attendront que j’aie terminé!

Another run scheduled tonight, hopefully the storm will wait after my run!

Outdoor running season officially started!

These shoes have been running for almost a year now! I will go buy new ones this week. Any suggestions? I’ve always worn Brooks Ghost shoes.

Last Saturday was amazing for Montreal with temperatures in the 20’s. When the snow has melted and your can run outside without a winter jacket, that’s when running season officially starts in Montreal.

I geared up with this baby (Garmin Forerunner) :

and ran about 11km.  Felt amazing to come back home with jelly legs!

The weather made everybody come out of their cocoon and meet up for Sunday’s Tam Tam event. It has become a ritual here in Montreal, for young adults mostly, to meet up at the Jeanne-Mance park for picnics, music and outdoor chilling.

Let’s just hope that spring is here to stay and will slowly develop into a beautiful summer season.

Let me know for the shoes suggestions!
