123 Days to go

6.30am 4 miles run with Vodka. Not a bad run this morning, Vodka did enjoy it very much. I let her go into the water, she goes mental if she gets to swim a little. Then I ran back home with a wet dog who likes to rub herself against my leg; pure joy 🙂

I wasn’t planning on writing about this, but I just can’t stop thinking about the Norwegian massacre and the trial of Breivik since the beginning of this week.

124 Days to go

Monday is rest day. The training schedule seems heavy this week, so I am really enjoying my rest day. I watched the Boston Marathon elite runners early in the morning, a little inspiration for my little short legs. The elites make it look so easy to run a marathon in just over 2 hours. They look so effortless… Qualifying for Boston is on my bucket list, just need to run a marathon around 3hrs25min to qualify. Easy…

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.

6.30am 4 miles easy run with Lilo around Coal Harbor. I really enjoy running around Coal Harbor, it’s quieter than False Creek and there is something about running around Stanley Park early in the morning…
Anyhow. I want to share another inspiring story with you today. This one is about Zoey. An abandoned puppy who became a highly trained search and rescue dog.

6.30am 4 miles tempo run with Vodka.
I took Vodka to Coal Harbor area this morning, a nice run along the water then along the lost lagoon. It’s just so nice over there in the mornings. So quiet. It makes you feel like you’re out in the wild within the city.

6.30am 4 miles run with Lilo.
I woke up really early this morning, like around 5.30. I was awake but I didn’t leave the bed, I thought I can just stay in for another 5 minutes. And of course I closed my eyes until 6.15am. Within that 45 minutes, I had a dream about today’s run. So at 6.15am, I woke up thinking that I already finished my run.

Rest Day. Oh today was difficult to go to work. You’ll think when you have 3 days off from work you’ll get some rest and you’ll be ready to go back to work refreshed. It was such a lovely day in Vancouver as well, I am feeling the “FrĂĽhjahrsmĂĽdigkeit.” No idea what it is? Let me explain, I am sure you know the feeling.

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.
