89 Days to go

Monday, off day. Such a lazy day today. I slept in too. So unusual of me. I woke up around 8 to walk the girls, then went back to bed to sleep until 10.30am. Crazy. I feel really rested that’s for sure. Running makes you listen to your body more. You get a feeling what you should be doing in terms of resting or taking it easy.

90 Days to go

5.30 pm 6 miles solo run. I was supposed to run 10 miles today but I had to keep it short since it was getting a bit dark in the trails. I decided to run the Capilano Loop today, what a treat it was. I just can’t believe we live so close to this much beauty and we don’t fully take advantage.

6.30am 21 miles solo run.
Well that was long and painful. I took a really urban path today. I ran around 10th street up till UBC then back on the beach and then back up on the hill to hit 8th all the way back to Main st. I was dead. Seriously, not funny, this was the longest training run I have ever had in Vancouver.

Off day. I had a weird stomach pain all day during the day today. That’s the reason I skipped my cross training this afternoon. And to be honest, tomorrow’s run intimidates me, I am trying to save all the energy I can.

Today was my last day on my project, officially wrapped up. A little emotional day but I am proud of the work we did.

3pm 4 miles solo run.
What a busy day today. I always laughed at people who said they didn’t have enough time during the day while they are not actually working. But I must say, I finally finished all the things I wanted to do today, and still have things to do on my list.
I finally went to the storage room to get our summer clothes out. If I ever ever say I need more dresses, somebody please slap me.

3pm 4 miles run with Vodka.
I think I am officially off from work. I still go in the mornings to check on things but having the rest of the day to myself is just bliss. I had breakfast with mom, then I had the whole afternoon to myself. A mid day run is actually quiet nice. And also I am finally able to sleep properly; I find an hour long afternoon nap just divine.

I just had too many things that I have been postponing for a while and now it’s time to make all of them happen.

Monday off day. Even though it’s my off day, the idea of missing one run last week drives me crazy, makes me feel absolutely guilty. I feel like I am disappointing all of you, failing on my goal. I rollerbladed to work today to kind of compensate, but I know you don’t buy that. Working 7 days a week 10hours a day is hard work. I know my brain is tired because I am having difficulties thinking in English; my Turkish creeps in, words get jumbled up.

Mother’s day today. It is still Mothers day in the Pacific, so I am not late to write about it. I hope you guys dropped everything and spent time with your moms today. They deserve so much for than just one day a year so spoiling them for a day is the minimum we can do.
Me and my mom went for a nice walk along the sea and spent couple of hours drinking mimosas and having brunch at Granville Island.

Midday 7 miles run. I had to cut my run short since I needed to pick up Lilo from work. She was at work with Ollie. All the attention, new smells, and new environment make her so excitable. She is passed out now. I took Vodka to the beach in the morning, we had a blast. She can just swim forever.

Wow, 2 digit days start today.
What a crazy Friday today. It was supposed to be my last day on this project. The project being Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. It’s going to be a good movie but oh boy it’s been a long one. Anyhow, I just need to go for couple of hours tomorrow and maybe couple of hours more next week. I need my regulated, normal life back.

And today, apparently there was a fire on our building 30th floor.
