22 days to go
6.30 am 18 miles solo long run

I ended up doing the same route from last time just to be safe. But I didn’t feel warm for the whole 3.22hr that I was out there. At least I missed the snow I guess. But today was the definitely the coldest run I have ever done. So windy and so bloody cold!

Happy Friday to you all. I know some of you are already getting ready to leave to work, but we just woke up at the West Coast.

I am putting all the photos from yesterday’s after work run. It was unbelievably cold and windy. I still saw people in shorts tho… I dont get it, really.

6.30 am 2 miles fun run with Vodka

I didn’t sleep well, since Ollie doesn’t read this as often I can complain about his snoring :) I am going to hit the road again after work for a proper  7 miles speedwork. I took Vodka out for a fun run since she loves to race! It is extra difficult to take a non blurry photo with Vodka, who is completely black & agitated and it’s freaking cold outside!

6.30 am 3 miles run with Lilo

I have to say, it was pretty hard to get up this morning. My back and arms are pretty sore from the weekend. I think my upper body strength needs to catch up with my legs.
But Lilo was really excited to go for a run, she was all smiles and galloping right behind me. It’s such a treat to have running buddies like Lilo & Vodka.

I am having pretty bad back pain. I didn’t sleep well at all. No training.

I want to write about today. Not about it’s being Monday but about the increase of color red all around town.

6 am 16 miles solo long run

I decided to have safe and flat route today. So I did Gastown, Coal harbour, Stanley Park, English Bay and back. I am glad that I picked this route because it was just fascinating. The color of the ocean, all the ducks, birds, kayakers… I thought I’ll need music this time but nope, there is nothing better than listening to the sound of nature.

Day off running, suppose to do biking

I didn’t hear my alarm and now I dont have time to hit the gym. Vodka is waiting for the school bus to pick them up, she is worried as usual. They are both waiting for my phone to ring. My little super excitables…

Anybody for Cypress after work??

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 am 30 min stationary bike

No running this morning since I have a 14 miler tomorrow. Vodka stayed over my mom’s place last night, and Lilo really didn’t wanna hit the road this morning. And I like biking anyway, you can basically sleep on a stationary bike while pedalling.

Day off

Well, it’s Sunday. And it’s my official day off training during the week. Decided to enjoy a big cup of latte at the Fish House in Stanley Park.  I am attaching the picture of Vodka in the foreground and Lilo in the background. Lazy day after all… for all dogs and humans out there.
