Day 69
Lunch time 3 miles run with Lilo. What a crazy day in Vancity today! I seriously woke up so angry to the rain, to the grayness of the day. It felt like January when I had to put on my wellies and put on doggies rain jackets this morning. Cold, wet and windy. Just yuck. So after ranting for couple of hours about the awfulness of the weather in Vancouver, something happened. The sun decided to join.

Day 68
These photos will explain the day in our household. Worked more than 12 hours, and the girls were at the daycare. I managed to squeeze in my lunch time Bar Method.
Tomorrow is another day full of chaos but I am keeping myself on track, not delaying what life is offering out there.
Taking things a bit slower than I would like to, but never abandoning them.

Combining days once more. Busy week ended with a busy weekend. I have been working 6-7 days a week, which leaves not enough time for play & recovery but I am doing my best. 6am Bar Method today, and planning to stick with the running schedule for the rest of the week.

Day 63 & 64
I have been Bar Methoding almost every day of the week now! My legs are so tired, I can’t even describe it. This Friday night, is all about chilling, taking it slow. I needed that. One amazing thing about living with dogs; they remind you how much fun you can have with the simplest things in life. Let’s take Vodka. Every time, while we wait for the elevator, she rolls and flips on the carpet in the hallway. There must be something about the carpet rubbing against her fur that makes her go nuts. I am going to film her one day.

Day 62
6am Bar Method. Early morning today. It actually felt pretty good, managed to get some proper solid sleep.
I just wanted to say thank you to all who dropped me a line to make me feel better, because it sure did make me feel much much better. It’s a great feeling to hear inspiring words from friends and family. Love you all!

Day 60 & 61
So it has been 2 months of writing and not actually making a difference. You may feel I am a bit bitter today because I am really frustrated and upset about my situation here. I feel like I am turning into one of those idle people who don’t do anything to change the world and I don’t want to be that person, I am strongly against that person. So what are we gonna do about it?

Day 59
10km solo run. Such an amazing day here in Vancouver. The wind is so gentle, the sun is so warm and the beauty of this city is just hard to describe. I had to work today until 6pm, but still head out for my run along the water facing the sun, feeling the fresh warm air, taking every breath with a smile. Nothing beats the feeling of a run outside in the sun after a long week of work. And also, it feels like it’s the beginning of trail running season soon! Cannot wait!

Day 56 & 57 and 58!
Today’s entry required an exclamation mark because I haven’t been writing for the last 2 days! Not slacking, still did my 10km on Thursday then lunch time Bar Method both days. I am having trouble sleeping properly lately, and that’s been the issue with delayed posts. I am exhausted physically and mentally but there is no switch button to thoughts.
Things will calm down eventually, or I’ll adapt to the tempo. You need to push your limits to learn about yourself!

Day 55
6am Bar Method. Oh my morning was funny today. I had dinner around 5.30pm last night, so I was feeling pretty hungry going to bed but decided not to open the fridge door for a midnight snack. Anyway, I was dreaming about this noodle box, was holding it in my hands and was just about to have a bite then my alarm went off! I was like “Oh common!” I was going to be so satisfied if I was able to have a bite of those noodles before I wake up! 🙂
Anyway, I fulfilled my dream during lunch time. You have to fulfill your dreams!

Day 53 & 54
Since I have been a slacker (go ahead, tell it to my face), it’s going to be a long one tonite. My sincere apologies. Monday morning started with a 6am Bar Method and today is ending with a lovely moonlight run after work with Vodka.
By the way, I feel like more of you started running recently. So happy and proud of all of you who are going out and choosing the be active and playful. And to be honest, spring running is so peaceful.
