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!

Happy Friday to you all. I know some of you are already getting ready to leave to work, but we just woke up at the West Coast.

I am putting all the photos from yesterday’s after work run. It was unbelievably cold and windy. I still saw people in shorts tho… I dont get it, really.

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…

First of all, I would like to say that my thoughts are with all New Zealanders. The scariest time of my life was during the 99 earthquake in Turkey. The life you know goes away in seconds, and there is chaos everywhere.
I wish you all the best and I hope everyone can unite with their loved ones and recover from this disaster as soon as they can.

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.

Day off running. Snowboarding @Whistler.

We had an amazing day at Whistler today as well. The sun was out and the snow was just perfect. I feel pretty tired after this weekend’s activities. I managed to squeeze a steam room and pool session before the end of the day. It was exactly what I needed to open those joints! Back to running tomorrow. I hope it would be a dry morning.

So we were at Blackcomb today all day snowboarding. Amazing day, nice and sunny, really nice snow conditions 🙂

We’re staying at this amazing lodge, thanks to Dawn! It is able to fit 8 of us comfortably and it has a cozy atmosphere.

Day off.

We’ll be heading to Whistler tonite after work for 2 days of snowboarding. So I am taking today off to give my legs a break. Too bad it’s a nice morning outside after last night’s thunderstorm.
I went to “Innocent Coffee” on W 4th. Really small but super cute place with good coffee. They have a small exhibition room upstairs as well.

6 am 5 miles run with Lilo

We got a pretty fun run, I think she missed running together. She tried to go to the water once but I managed to catch her before she got wet.
Super cold outside, there was ice all around the ground. At least I get to see some clear blue sky now. And I get some color in my photos 🙂
