Day off

Nothing better than sleeping in on Sundays. I woke up around 7 but stayed in bed and slept until 9! Mom is still spoiling me with scrambled eggs, mimosas and Vivaldi on a long play.
I like these sleep overs at mom’s 🙂

6.30 am 3 miles easy run with Lilo

I slept in this morning. I didn’t hear my alarm at all. I know.. Unacceptable.
I needed to run 1 mile less than my schedule to come home on time.

It’s wet outside, warm as well.
I dont know if we are going to be able to snowboard at Cypress this season if it goes like this.

6 am 5 miles tempo run with Vodka

Just like every morning, I got up, walked to the dryer to get my running gear, still half a sleep, grabbed my gloves from the floor then BAMMM… the door of the dryer tried to kill me. I hit my head so hard that I just needed to sit down on the floor with my ice pack for 15 minutes… I have a huge bump on my head now.

5.45am 5 miles solo run
I have a message to everyone today.

I wake up every morning, check my news feed before getting up. The whole page is covered with dogs/cats that are waiting to be adopted or fostered all around the world. Most of them are abused, injured, sick and need care. The only thing that makes me able to take breath is to see that there are other people trying to help. Small group of people trying to share the photos of these animals, hoping that they can survive before going back to the streets of Turkey.

Day off running.

What a glorious day in Vancouver. Just mesmerizing.
Started the day by washing Vodka and Lilo. They LOVE being washed and love playing with the towel after.

Had brunch with Dawny at 100days in Yaletown. Got my weekly mimosa+latte fix. Still not sure about the 100 days concept but it’s kinda funky inside.

6 am 12 miles solo long run

Sorry for the delayed post. I needed to take Lilo to the Vet right after my run. We had a “grape” accident last month and she needed to go for a follow up. Note to self: never give your dogs grapes, they are poisonous to them.
Anyway, it was pretty quiet outside this morning. Not many runners. It was super dark in Kitsilano area. I ran until Jericho beach from our place.

5.45 am 5 miles easy run with Lilo

Nice fog eh? It was pretty cool and distracting. Kinda cold outside this morning.

Lilo got obsessed with a goose half way. I think she thinks “it’s small, it’s fast, it’s running away from me. I must chase!” She almost went and jumped  after the goose once the goose flew towards the water.

5.45 am 5 miles speedwork with Vodka

Way better than yesterday. Felt my toe in the beginning but it didn’t bother me after the 1st mile. So thumbs up little toe!

And it’s hard to believe, but I think I saw the sky getting brighter and brighter this morning. I think summer is coming 🙂
I am just saying…

Day of running. Biking and swimming

Probably most of you don’t know but I used to be a national champion swimmer. I started swimming when I was 5, and kept going until I was probably 15 or 16.

I did 30 min of biking then I did some pull buoy swimming for my arms, that pink thing in the picture is a pull buoy for those who are not familiar with it.
