150 Days to go

6.30am 4 miles easy run with Lilo.
Oh boy, I need more hours in the mornings, or I have to push myself to get up earlier. I usually leave the bed @6am, put on my running gear then end up napping on the couch till 6.30am. It happened this morning too. I was lucky to be able to wake up!

One month AFTER

I miss this. I miss you all. Today, it’s been a month since the race day. It feels like it was ages ago. It took me 2 weeks to recover from the race, beating the cold and replenishing my whole system… Now I am obsessed with the next thing. Another one? Absolutely.

RACE DAY

RACE DAY!
26.2 miles run

Been there, done that. This was an amazing feeling. I wish the rain and the wind storm didn’t attack us all like this but oh well we all managed to run and not worry about being wet.

I took the shuttle @5.15am. It’s funny to be in a bus with bunch of runner munching on stuff and anxious…

Day off running, stationary biking after work.

I slept in until 7. I am catching up on my sleep since I didn’t sleep much after hearing the news. 18 miles are apparently hard on my legs too.. I am going to do some stretching tonight. Lilo is not limping this morning. She managed to enjoy the snow a little bit better. Vodka is still acting like a crazy dog in the snow.

Day off running. Snowboarding @Whistler.

We had an amazing day at Whistler today as well. The sun was out and the snow was just perfect. I feel pretty tired after this weekend’s activities. I managed to squeeze a steam room and pool session before the end of the day. It was exactly what I needed to open those joints! Back to running tomorrow. I hope it would be a dry morning.

We’re staying at this amazing lodge, thanks to Dawn! It is able to fit 8 of us comfortably and it has a cozy atmosphere.

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.
