7 days to go
Day off

Next week this time, I’ll be a proud marathon finisher. I can’t believe we counted down from 62 days… All those long hours of running… I am looking forward to the race day. I will be in pain, but it’s nothing compared to what we have been going through all around the world this year so far.

6.30 am 8 miles solo run

We reached our goal of $5000 last night! I am so thrilled by the support that I received yesterday. While we were just watching the news glued to the TV or following the events online, I had you all encouraging and supporting me. It’s an unbelievable feeling.

6.30 am 2 miles easy run with Lilo

First of all, I would like to send my love to everyone who got affected by the earthquake in Japan. Nature is not playing good with us, we can make strong buildings against the shake but when you get a tsunami, you feel helpless. Please reach for a hand, a paw or a branch and do as much as you can do to help to those who are in distress.

6.30 am 4 miles tempo run with Vodka

She didn’t seem to be too excited to go out this morning but I think we had another successful off leash run with her. She is really good ignoring distractions, she just needs to focus on staying on my side.  Here is Vodka tempted to go into the water while it was raining.

20 miles long solo run

Well, this was a long run 🙂 I went from our place in Gastown to Wreck Beach. That UBC hill is pretty damn long! Anyway, I need to trust my training program that running 20 miles is going to be enough to finish 26 miles with the adrenalin rush. We will see.

5 miles tempo run with Vodka

It was our first off leash run! She tried to run ahead but I kept correcting her and she learned to stay right next to me the whole time. She tried to get into the water as usual, but she was a good girl and listened to me and came back.
I love running with Vodka.

6.30 am 18 miles solo long run

I ended up doing the same route from last time just to be safe. But I didn’t feel warm for the whole 3.22hr that I was out there. At least I missed the snow I guess. But today was the definitely the coldest run I have ever done. So windy and so bloody cold!

6.30 am 2 miles fun run with Vodka

I didn’t sleep well, since Ollie doesn’t read this as often I can complain about his snoring 🙂 I am going to hit the road again after work for a proper  7 miles speedwork. I took Vodka out for a fun run since she loves to race! It is extra difficult to take a non blurry photo with Vodka, who is completely black & agitated and it’s freaking cold outside!

6.30 am 2 miles solo run

It was an easy morning today, just 2 miles. I kinda slept in too, felt guilty.
I am going to see my physio today, I am really looking forward to it! I hope my back pain will disappear eventually. Sitting in front of a computer all day doesn’t really help…

6.30 am 3 miles run with Lilo

I have to say, it was pretty hard to get up this morning. My back and arms are pretty sore from the weekend. I think my upper body strength needs to catch up with my legs.
But Lilo was really excited to go for a run, she was all smiles and galloping right behind me. It’s such a treat to have running buddies like Lilo & Vodka.
