103 Days to go

Monday, I am falling in love with you for letting me rest.
After a fun filled Sunday, it was hard to get back to work. I had such an amazing time yesterday sailing. Seeing the city from the water is beautiful. It made me miss the Bosphorus. I hope I can have some time to go cruising with a boat in Istanbul in July. I don’t think I can live in a city with no water.

115 Days to go

6pm 5 miles run with Vodka. Dogs are so fun. I had a long day at work, came home, started getting ready to head out for my run. Both Vodka and Lilo got so excited seeing me putting on my running shoes. Dogs just live in the moment. They forget that they were at home all day sleeping, and their mom was mad at them for tipping over the laundry basket. Their enthusiasm and energy is contagious. So happy to be out, doing something fun.

A little history today.

7am 9 miles solo run. I am sorry for the delayed post, but Bubbles had too much bubbles tonite. I am really sorry for any grammer mistakes or any “not making any sense” kind of sentences. I had a great run this morning, from Gastown to Queen Elizabeth Park and I would like to share some of my experience with you.

126 Days to go

I am a little confused, I lost one day somewhere, both my countdown calendars are saying I have 126 days to go instead of 127… A little strange. I guess Friday the 13th ate one of my days. Well well, August 19 is getting closer and closer. I was out last night to see Cat Empire play at the Commodore. It’s our 3rd time watching them live. They know how to play the crowd, and oh boy, I am glad I was wearing my running shoes. It was so exhausting, 2.5hrs of jumping up and down.

Cross training day, I’ll be rollerblading. What a beautiful Friday in Vancouver. I took the girls to the park and they chased couple of ducks, they were just happy.
It’s been a stressful week for me, lots of things happening in my life, things changing. It’s strange how we look for certainty, stability, and comfort but at the same time we thrive uncertainty and variety.

I am so sorry for this delayed post. But I must admit I had a great Easter Sunday today.
I haven’t been out running (bad turkey, bad Turkey!) but we had our first bbq of the season today.
I was supposed to run 8 miles, but you know, when you have mimosas calling your name, it’s really difficult to ignore them.

Happy Easter everyone! Such a nice feeling to have a weekday off, especially a Friday. No running for me today, I have this strange bump on my left foot, so I took it easy at the gym. I try to keep it elevated and ice it couple of times as well. I got a 16 miler to run this weekend, can’t afford an injury really.
I am thinking doing half day snowboarding @Whistler, and then do the 8 miler around the lake in the afternoon.

139 Days to go

Monday is rest day, it’s my new favorite day. As expected my legs are a little disfunctional this morning, and my back hurts a little as well. Yesterday, a pile of snow from the trees fell on me while I was running, I think my back got a little cold from that.

1pm 8 miles Lynn Peak trail run.
This was probably the most challenging and amazing training run I have ever had. It kicked my turkey bum (big time) but it was so worth it. It was my first time at this trail so didn’t know what to expect in terms of terrain and elevation. I am glad I didn’t take one of the sidekicks with me, the terrain is really rough and there was so much snow half way!

2pm 9 miles solo long run.
It felt so good to have a Saturday off. I didn’t have to rush out of the house to do my run, then walk the doggies and head to work. This morning was a bliss. I indulged myself, stayed in bed till 8.30am. I am a better runner in the afternoons. So much stronger for some reason.
They should have more races in the afternoon rather than 9am in the morning. Agree?
