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…

Day of running. Biking and swimming

Probably most of you don’t know but I used to be a national champion swimmer. I started swimming when I was 5, and kept going until I was probably 15 or 16.

I did 30 min of biking then I did some pull buoy swimming for my arms, that pink thing in the picture is a pull buoy for those who are not familiar with it.

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 :)

Day off

Well, it’s Sunday. And it’s my official day off training during the week. Decided to enjoy a big cup of latte at the Fish House in Stanley Park.  I am attaching the picture of Vodka in the foreground and Lilo in the background. Lazy day after all… for all dogs and humans out there.

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.

Day off running.

Went to Cypress last night for couple of hours of snowboarding. Not really liking running and snowboarding on the same day, but hey what can you do when there is fresh snow?

Heading to the physio this morning to keep an eye on my legs. Cannot really afford to have an injury after this point so it’s good to get things checked.

Happy friday everyone and try to stay dry out there. Love you all.

Breakfast: Latte and a scone.
