800m//1500m//5000m//XC Université Laval, Québec

Today was rough. Came through in 7:57 for 3000m, and wheels fell off 500m later. Not the result I expected but I was commited to our goal of 13:13 pace. Not going to lie that training has been going better than ever recently, so the recent string of sub par races is a bit puzzling for me. I’m thankful to be healthy, and fitness is good. Not many pieces of the puzzle are missing, so I will keep showing up and my time will come. Thanks to everyone that tuned in today. Gros merci à @jimmy_gressier et @adrien.taouji pour l’accueil chaleureux en France 🇫🇷. Ce fut un plaisir de venir m’entrainer avec vous, et ce n’est que partie remise! ✌🏼 📸 @newbalance @premiertech @rbc @eye_am_soins_oculaires @coros_canada

💥🗣Another chapter begins... I can’t describe the excitement I have for joining the @newbalance family. I really do believe this is a partnership that will elevate my running (and style 😜) to the next level. Beyond grateful for this new opportunity. It was only a logical choice after I spent (for the best) most of 2020 rebuilding, and working on my weaknesses in all spheres of the sport. This change was needed to complete the new and improved version of me. NB X CPT = CPT 2.0 #TeamNB

More of the same 🔁 To become less of the same📈 Jericho Beach, best back drop in Canada to train hands down. Merci @curious_creation pour les superbes photos de la séance d’aujourd’hui. Au menu: 3k-3k-2k-2k-2k, 1’ jog récup 🙌🏼

Best caption might win something. GO!

Sometimes you just have to do your best with the hand you’re dealt 🃏🙇🏼‍♂️ With all tracks shut down in Edmonton due to COVID19, streets that are snowy and slippery and my foot that tends to act up when I do hill repeats, today we decided to bring it to the indoor garage for some fast 80m strides! Pretty excited to head back to Vancouver next week to get ready for indoor season in better conditions. It will be my first ever Christmas/Birthday without my friends and family, while it is sad all of us know it’s for the best of everyone’s safety. Next Holiday celebrations will be all the more enjoyable if we act reponsible this year. 🎄🎅🏼 #asics #teamasics #premiertech #christmas #holidays #staysafe #asicscanada #RBColympians #teamcanada

First thing in the morning, every day, I put on my @alconcanada PRECISION1® contact lenses and head out for training. It’s as simple as that. They are easy to use and wear and one of the most essential parts of my daily routine. #SEEWHATHAPPENS #PRECISION1 #sponsored

Ran 13:22.44 for 5k last night. Really happy to be in this type of fitness in December, but above all, healthy and fit. The fighter still remains 🙏🏼 Thanks to @soundrunning for the safe race opportunity. 📸Pictures by the forever awesome @justinbritton #asics #premiertech #RBColympians

When I originally started wearing contact lenses, my eyes would reject them. I thought I couldn’t wear lenses because of comfort issues. I didn’t want my active lifestyle to slow down because of issues with my vision and contact lenses. Today, I wear Precision1® contact lenses and they are among one of the daily tools I can’t live without. They’re essential in my athletic career, and I wear them from the moment I’m up until I go to sleep. They’re a lens that you can start and stay in because they’re easy to use and wear, dependable, and good for those like me who want to embrace the freedom of life without glasses! I want to thank @alconcanada for helping me find the right lens that allows me to train, compete, and live my life. If you’re interested in learning more, talk to your eye care professional to #SEEWHATHAPPENS when you find the right contact lens. #PRECISION1 #sponsored

Today’s agenda 🗓: . AM ➡️ speedwork on the track 😎 . PM ➡️ « Dynamic mobility and stretching » 🙃

Ce fut un réel plaisir de chasser le record québécois du 5km sur route à la maison, dans les rues de @ulaval ! Un objectif ambitieux que j’ai malheureusement raté en courant 14:08, mais qui est un bon test dans cette phase de retour à la forme. Avec @queendesgagnez qui était seulement à 3 secondes du record avec son 13:58, c’est de dire que ce n’est que partie remise pour nous deux! Merci à @rbc @rougeetor @athletismeqc d’avoir pu rendre le défi possible. . . . Photos par Louis Charland/ Le Soleil. #RBCOlympians #OlympienRBC #Asics #Teamasics #PremierTech #5km

Sipping champagne when thirsty is big 2020 mood

Bucket list item today: the infamous GROUSE GRIND! 🏔 Now I can confirm that the fastest you can run 800, 1500, 5000 or 10 000 meters on a track will NEVER EVER and not even be remotely CLOSE to the hurt of the grind!! 1.9km climb with 800m elevation! A nice 30 minute first class ride in the pain train! 🚂🥴😵 Throat still tastes like blood...
