Day 30
10 miles long run in the afternoon. What a day for kiteboarding in Vancity! The wind was unbelievable. I am still not brave enough to face the Canadian waters in March but I have seen couple of kiteboarders having a blast in the city. I had to run against the crazy wind for 5 miles. It felt like whenever I take a new step, I was going backward, or like being on a treadmill. My way back home was delightful with the wind pushing me forward with every step.

Day 26
Lunch time Bar Method, and 7pm 4 miles speedwork. You can say I was punishing myself for taking a day off yesterday. I am a bit dead tired right now.
Since today is World Spay Day, I want to give you guys some information. Pet overpopulation is one of the biggest problems facing companion animals and animal rescue organizations. Spaying and neutering is the #1 way to prevent pet euthanasia and reduce pet overpopulation.

Day 22
5.45am 5 miles tempo run with Lilo. Such a nasty nasty day out there in Vancouver. I woke up @5.30 and believe me, it was pretty damn hard to convince myself to leave the house and face the pouring rain! I mean it is pouring outside, and it’s windy as well. But surprisingly, I had a pretty sweet run, felt really strong and actually had a quality run. I feel like high fiving myself right now for my little achievement before work.

Day 20
6am Bar Method. My sleep cycle is completely changed now. No matter how late I stay or how much wine I have, I just wake up at 5am. Pretty awake too. Leaving the house is still an issue, lots of negotiating happens at 5.30am. So far the most efficient argument is “if you go out now, you’ll be done by 7 and then you can sleep until 8 again” It works. I love it. Second sleep is sooo sweet.

Day 12
6am Bar Method. I almost did want to skip my class this morning, pretend I didn’t hear the alarm @5.30am. Discipline my friends, is doing what you know needs to be done (even though you don’t want to do it at that very moment). I came across this thumbler feed today; Lie to me, daily dishonesty Don’t we all have these kind of little lies everyday? Like mine would be “just one glass”. Oh geez, after writing this, I saw this one wine. Now you go and have fun browsing.

Day 8

It's Friday! And no I didn't wake up @5.30 this morning. I actually have a lunch time Bar Method class today. Then we are off to Sun Peaks for a weekend of snowboarding. Long weekend! A bit excited by the idea of having 3 days off. I am going to pack my running gear as well, I can't miss an opportunity to explore a new place, if any of you know good running trails around Sun Peaks, give me a shout.

Day 7
6.30am 2 miles run with Vodka.
I slept in. I didn’t hear my alarm and woke up at 6.20. When you are short on time, you do speedwork. Vodka loves speedwork anyway. It’s a nice morning out there, a bit windy but that’s how you get the clear sky.

Day 5
6am 5 miles run with Lilo.

I think my brain is accepting the early morning routines now. I woke up @5.30 even tho I had a bit too many drinks on a Monday night last night. It was great, and I am glad my run didn’t make me regret it. Oh by the way Vancouver, it’s windy out there today.

Day 3
3 miles run with Lilo.
Happy Sunday everyone. I had a great brunch (with endless mimosas!) then hit the trails for couple of miles with Lilo. We went inside Stanley Park, around Beaver Lake. Not sure why the Santa hats were on our way – I mean really it’s February already… People are watching the superbowl today!
