121 Days to go

I woke up late again, it’s going to be an after work run as well. Today it’s an important day for National Search Dog Foundation. Today is the 17th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. I remember watching the rescue operations on TV, I was 12 years-old and I remember reporters talking about the daycare that was in the building. Lost of innocent kids were buried under the rubble.

6pm 6 miles run with Lilo. I made a deal with myself this morning at 5.30am. I said, if I don’t go for a run this morning, I will go to work early and then do my run after work. It was really easy to convince myself to stay in bed for an extra half an hour, but I was at work @7.30am. Once I convinced my brain that I am not physically tired to go for a run after work, I was quite pleased with my run. Lilo sure did too, she LOVED her mini-swim session.

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.

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…

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. Pretty nice morning out there today. I was really sleepy, it took me a mile to actually realize that I was out running.
Good thing today is like a Friday to us in North America. Long weekend, I am so ready for it!

6am 5 miles run with Vodka.
What a beautiful morning in Vancouver! Even though my stomach wasn’t ready to run this morning at 6am, I had a decent run. I managed to run those leftover 3 miles after work yesterday as well. Running actually helped my sore legs to feel better. So no complaining.

6.15am 4 miles easy run with Lilo.
Not a bad morning in Vancouver. It gets lighter really quickly after 6.30am as well.

7am 12 miles SOLO long run.
Well this was much better than yesterday. When I was reading about ultra-marathon training and they were mentioning about the importance of running on “tired legs” by scheduling back to back long runs on the weekends, I underestimated what they meant. And yes, my legs were tired from yesterday’s long run and I just wasn’t able to run the extra 2 miles to reach 14 miles.

6.30am 6 miles tempo run.
My sidekick seem to be taking this week off, they are not leaving their beds. To be honest, it was really hard for me to leave my bed this morning too. I am out of my caffeine fix in the morning so I dragged myself out of the apartment. But, hey, most of the time, leaving the house is the more difficult than running itself.
