Day 26
Lunch time Bar Method, and 7pm 4 miles speedwork. You can say I was punishing myself for taking a day off yesterday. I am a bit dead tired right now.
Since today is World Spay Day, I want to give you guys some information. Pet overpopulation is one of the biggest problems facing companion animals and animal rescue organizations. Spaying and neutering is the #1 way to prevent pet euthanasia and reduce pet overpopulation.

Day 25
Monday, day off. Today I felt like I needed to take a day off to give myself a break to recover properly. I woke up way too early and decided to hit the snooze button to force myself to take it easy and listen to my body. I am glad I did it, I feel much better today and ready for the running ahead of me this week.
Today I want to emphasize once more the power of a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals.

Day 24
Midday hot yoga. It’s been a busy busy weekend. Lots happening today; the oscars, brunch with friends, gathering in the rain to raise awareness and showing solidarity. After watching the oscars last night, I decided to write about the importance of appreciation in our life.
I do visual effects for movies in my daily life and it’s something I love doing. No question about it. For those who is not in this industry, we make pretty pictures and make people believe in movie magic.

Day 20
6am Bar Method. My sleep cycle is completely changed now. No matter how late I stay or how much wine I have, I just wake up at 5am. Pretty awake too. Leaving the house is still an issue, lots of negotiating happens at 5.30am. So far the most efficient argument is “if you go out now, you’ll be done by 7 and then you can sleep until 8 again” It works. I love it. Second sleep is sooo sweet.

Day 18
6am Bar Method. Who doesn’t like getting up at 5am on a Monday morning? Delightful. Not gonna lie, it feels good to be done with the day’s workout at 7am.
Last night at dinner, we were with a friend (Hi Impey!) who just came back from his home country South Africa and was telling us how the rhino poaching just peaked again and how sad and shocking it is. So today let’s talk about what poaching does to animals, to our environment.

Day 17
2pm 10 miles run. Those of you who ran across the Lions Gate Bridge would know; it’s freaking hard. You don’t feel the incline and the steep decline of the bridge when you are driving. Running the bridge is a different story. My legs are going to cry tomorrow morning at 6am Bar Method.

Day 7
6.30am 2 miles run with Vodka.
I slept in. I didn’t hear my alarm and woke up at 6.20. When you are short on time, you do speedwork. Vodka loves speedwork anyway. It’s a nice morning out there, a bit windy but that’s how you get the clear sky.

Day 4
6am Bar Method class.
Oh yes, I started Bar Method. Bring on the uncontrollable shaking! Vodka & Lilo agree that leaving the house @5.45 for 6am class is not too pleasant on a Monday morning. I was soooo close to bailing. The hardest thing is to get out of the door. Bar Method fitness challenge started today; Minimum 3 classes/week for 3 months. Oh yes, my arms are still shaking as I write.

Day 2
12pm 5 miles trail run with Vodka.
Obviously I forgot how hilly Capilano Pacific Trail was. Good thing I still remember the basics of trail running. Running with Vodka is always a challenge on its own anyway. She is like one of those kids who like to test their parents limits. She is like “well she let me go into the water, BUT what would she do if I crawl under this pipe that goes underneath the river? oh she is yelling. Obviously I can’t. At least not today.”

Day 1

6am 4.5 miles solo run
Do I remember how to do this?
I think I spent the whole month of January trying to decide on what I am going to achieve this year. Which race should I train for, what charity should I support? Then a whole month passed, and I came up with nothing.
