101 Days to go

8pm run with Vodka.
I didn’t record my run tonite. The run wasn’t for me, it was more for Vodka. I worked from 7.30 am to 7.30 pm today, so I am not feeling to energetic. Once I got home, of course my 2 crazy labs are not aware of my long exhausting day. All they think is “play?”. So I put on my running shoes, and took Vodka out for a run around the lake.

I am sorry to say this but I am taking the day off today. I haven’t been sleeping much, and I have been working long hours with an extra hint of additional stress. I know going for a run would make me feel better, but I am just really tired both physically and mentally. I need today to be an off day. The girls and I are going to have some quiet quality time tonite at home.

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.

6.30 am 7 miles solo run.
I have to admit, I really didn’t want to leave my warm bed this morning. When the alarm went off at 6am, all I wanted to do is to snooze. But I managed to drag myself out and hit the road early. We have a busy day starting with brunch with friends then sailing in the afternoon and going to see Avengers at night. I had to run early.

It seems like all the roads are blocked due to the Vancouver Marathon. Vancourites, check the road closure before heading out.

6 am 20 miles solo long run. Well that was a long run. Especially since I had to fit this run in the morning before going to work…Ouch. At least I had proper dinner and kept it quiet on Friday night. We had drinks with work peeps, I behaved and came home around 9. Well done Bubbles, well done. This morning at 5.30am I was definitely glad that I went to bed early.

Cross training day, I’ll be heading to the gym tonite. Cross training really helps my running, especially having a strong core makes me stand tall even if I am exhausted.
Today I wanted to share with you guys story of Lilah. I am adding the photo of her and her handler.

6pm 4 miles run with Lilo. It’s official, the spring is here; I saw ducklings today at Stanley Park, and really protective parents. Another thing, I actually saw a beaver at Beaver Lake inside the park for the first time too. I have been running around the lake for a while and I haven’t seen a single beaver until today. Feeling a little accomplished to be honest.

I read this interesting article on Runnersworld today. Here it is

6pm 5 miles run with Vodka. I had a such a lovely run this afternoon. It was absolutely packed around the seawall so I went inside the Stanley Park to hit the trails. Feeling adventurous, tried a new path which led me to a beautiful hilly trail. I will definitely go back to that one. I think it was called Thompson trail?

7pm 3 miles with Lilo. I managed to squeeze an after work run today. It’s absolutely crazy times at work, I leave pretty drained. Now after a nice shower, I am ready for dinner, and some down time. Lilo really enjoyed the run, she went swimming half way, it was hard to convince her to come back.

Rest day. I am surprisingly not sore form yesterday’s run. I am really enjoying these quiet low key Mondays. This week’s training is going to be challenging; 20 miles waiting for me on Saturday.

Since it’s Monday, I thought I’ll promote Meatless Monday once more. Tableau Restaurant inside Loden Hotel is offering a Meatless Monday special, good to see restaurants participating in this movement.
