Happyย cinco de mayo Everyone!!

Today I did the stairs (my new fav activity!!! I squeezed out 4 sets tonight!! I feel awesome!! Although I feel that I could have did at the very least another set, on my way down on the fourth one my stomach kind of turned…You know that feeling like maybe I shouldn’t push it…and where was that bathroom again?? It seems that ever since I started working again I have been off schedule…that’s right guys…this working for a living is cutting into my poop schedule! I am sure I will get back to a good routine it just takes time!

Also on a plus I got a high five as I finished the up on my 3rd set….I think it was because when I feel I have done something awesome (like finish or beat my PB…I raise my hands up like I am running through the ribbon at the end of a run….its like my own little act of cheer/motivation LOL I loved it!!

Edit: Fixed the date… ๐Ÿ™‚

Did Stairs today ๐Ÿ˜€ I am really enjoying them! met a few other ladies…who are farther along in their goals than I am. I found them inspiring…as I was just finishing my 3 sets..they were on number 5!! Also there was another lady there who was a non stop machine!!! it was very encouraging that one day that will be me!! YAY!!!

I did however find it hard..on my second set I caught a frog in my throat and I could not get rid of it!!! It was with me for the rest of the night right up until bed time! Luckily I woke up this morning and it was gone!

What a Day!!

First I originally wanted to go do the stairs with my husband, but he copped out and ditched me to go look at a possible free trailer ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I know it sounds a bit silly, but I really wanted him to join me in my fitness adventures. So walking to the stairs I was pretty angry and upset…of course by the time I got to the stairs I refocused and eeked out 3 flights!! WHOOT!!! Felt awesome!

**Also later in the night I put on a pair of pants that I have not worn in a while, and when I last worn them the button always popped and they were uncomfortably tight….well…Although I did not notice right away, after a bit of wearing them I noticed that they actually fit quite well ๐Ÿ˜€ YAY!!

Still figuring out the timing of my evenings and such…sorry for the lateness. I did however do what I stated on Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ So instead of running I hiked to the fox drive stairs…For those that are not in the Edmonton area, these are outdoor stairs that are very steep. I used to do stairs when I worked at Taiga in the stair well of Metrotown in Burnaby….I did the whole stair case to the top twice…My legs were so wobbly that I really had to focus on my way down (after resting a bit) so that I didn’t fall!! then I made my way back home. I am not sure how long the whole trip took me so next time I will time the event. Note that I hiked both ways at a fairly quick pace…except of course the big hill at the end of the trail just before I get to the road….Horrendous!

All in all I greatly enjoyed this and will be doing it again! I was getting bored of running!!

Well team… I almost let you down!ย starting my new job is taking more out of me than I originally thought and I am still not getting enough sleep. I am aiming for a 10pm bed time, but it is currently more like 11/11:30 (and that is just getting into bed, I am not an instant sleeper so I need time to wind down and such…which makes for quite an early day.

So after work I was already talking myself out of today’s run ๐Ÿ˜ฆ you know it…and I am sure heard it all before…blah blah blah I am tired…..blah blah blah I am hungry…blah blah blah bull shit…So I had already told my husband that I was tired and not going to run tonight and then almost immediately I went and got my shoes (I already had my run outfit on) and started to lace up. I have you to thank. You, yes you who are reading my written words…my ups and downs, Almost as soon as I said I was not going I could feel the disappointment in the air. I do not want to let my self down.

I did not however run as much as Monday…few things…I was having a small feminine cup malfunction…weird yes so I will need to make sure that next month I have it securely in before I leave…When I started running I noticed that my knees and legs were very sore/tight, so I am going to look into some other activities. The point of the Tue/Thur/Sat is cardio, it is not written anywhere that this HAS to be running so I can change it up ๐Ÿ™‚ I am thinking strongly of doing the stairs on Thursday!!

Once I sign up to be apart of the community league I will also have access to the tennis courts so this will be also on the list of Cardio day activities!

Run Stats: 4.14 K @ 34.01 minutes @ 8.12 pace **Also I am over 10,000 steps ๐Ÿ˜€

Today it seemed hard to get out the door…not sure if it is the grey skies or because I just started my period…but in the end I did go, I actually saw a great quote on FB that helped me I will try to post it here:


๐Ÿ˜€ I did it!!!

This really struck me and the statement seems so easily over looked and hardly thought of! I am on week 4, Not very long into my journey I know, but there are times where I feel stronger than I was just a few short weeks ago!

Run Stats: 5.21 K @ 45.11 minutes @ 8:40 pace YAY!! I now know the route for a good 5 K!! as I get more comfortable I will slowly get faster as I want to get to a 30 minute 5 K ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!

I know I am a bit late with my blog, but rest assured I did complete day 4 this week (on day 4) I just did not get a chance to write about it. So I will write 2 today ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday I seemed to have a bit more energy than I usually do so I extended my run a bit…hoping that I can eventually extend it to 5 K, which I thought I had but I am still a little short. It was a little colder than it has been as well, but really only seems that way at the start, once I was warmed up I was ready to go!

Run Stats: 4.59 K @ 39.04 minutes @ 8.31 pace not bad at all!
