46 days to go
6 am 5 miles tempo run with Vodka

Just like every morning, I got up, walked to the dryer to get my running gear, still half a sleep, grabbed my gloves from the floor then BAMMM… the door of the dryer tried to kill me. I hit my head so hard that I just needed to sit down on the floor with my ice pack for 15 minutes… I have a huge bump on my head now.

6 am 12 miles solo long run

Sorry for the delayed post. I needed to take Lilo to the Vet right after my run. We had a “grape” accident last month and she needed to go for a follow up. Note to self: never give your dogs grapes, they are poisonous to them.
Anyway, it was pretty quiet outside this morning. Not many runners. It was super dark in Kitsilano area. I ran until Jericho beach from our place.

5.45 am 5 miles easy run with Lilo

Nice fog eh? It was pretty cool and distracting. Kinda cold outside this morning.

Lilo got obsessed with a goose half way. I think she thinks “it’s small, it’s fast, it’s running away from me. I must chase!” She almost went and jumped  after the goose once the goose flew towards the water.

5.45 am 5 miles speedwork with Vodka

Way better than yesterday. Felt my toe in the beginning but it didn’t bother me after the 1st mile. So thumbs up little toe!

And it’s hard to believe, but I think I saw the sky getting brighter and brighter this morning. I think summer is coming :)
I am just saying…

Sincerely heart broken.

5 miles easy run with Lilo

Had a pretty good run in the rain. It is unusual for a Monday morning.

We had an embarrassing moment with Lilo. A pug overtook her. She tired to catch up but the pug was running so much faster with his little legs… embarrassing really. I hope Lilo can recover from today’s embarrassing moment and starts moving a little bit faster :)

7 am 10 miles solo long run

What a beautiful morning. Finally managed to see the sun this week.
Pretty cold and lonely out there but it was worth getting up and watching the sunrise.

Just crossed the Lions Gate bridge and back. Love that course. It kills me with its long inclines and declines but it’s just an amazing scenery of Vancouver and North Vancouver.
