Mudder

Well hello!! If you’re here it means you’ve made it over to the new site from the old blog! Welcome! I hope you like it here as much as I do!

Race season is fast approaching! My first little race will be the Times Colonist 10k for which I’m part of a fun little race team of co-workers and friends from downtown. After that it’s non stop through the summer. One race I’m getting really excited about is Tough Mudder!! In case you don’t know, TM is a 12 mile run with 25 obstacles designed by the British Special Forces. It’s pretty much the toughest event on the planet. I can’t wait!! There’s so many crazy obstacles, hay bales on fire, electrically charged hanging strips, mud pits with barbed wire above them….the list goes on! June 24th!! It’s happening in Whistler and I’ll be a part of it!!

hilly

Well the Bear Mountain 10k was yesterday. Now I know why they call it the hardest 10k in Canada. Cuz it is hard. And hilly. I had some extensive chiropractic work done right before the race and I must remember never to do that again. One of the areas he worked on must have been inflamed or irritated because I was in excruciating pain for the entire race and then most of the day after. The usual things that hurt didn’t hurt tho, which was amazing, We’ll see how it is today, headed out after work for the usual sunday run with Vic.

soooo soon

well, it’s thursday….the marathon is on sunday. I really feel like running is a cataclismic battle within my brain where half of me is yelling to keep going and half of me is yelling to stop….it’s festive in my head, I tell ya. But, I’m doing this, for better or worse….my winter training goal is to work on my running and that is what I am doing…Bear Mtn 10k in November, should be delightful….I know that all this work will make me a better triathlete, but that doesn’t make it any more fun….at least I have some fantastic friends who are helping me along the way!! Marissa and I have a scheduled weekly run in between classes on weds and I will be running 20k with Vic every sunday (other than race days, of course). Having happy, motivated people around you makes you more happy and motivated!! It’s a scientific fact!! My sugoi order arrived today….sweet new Brand Champion tank and Picadilly armwarmers…love my life!! Getting back on the bike on thanksgiving monday…SWEET!!!!
