Here's a bit of what I've been up to since I've landed in St. John's, NL.
First off the must-haves for a flight: New Runner's World (now read cover to cover), sneakers to carry on and laptop.
Some pugs were happy to see me! Meet Doug and Lily. :)
I was very grateful for my sister's treadmill when I woke up to snow, no sidewalks and high winds. Yep. 5 very warm miles while watching Sex and the City.
I'm amazed at how I did all of this without dropping my coffee or phone! That takes some mad skills people. ;)
*Update on my fall: nothing got seriously hurt, but the right side of my butt is sporting a solid bruise, lol.
My PB toast was very appealing to some pugs.
Since I didn't mind the TM run as much as I thought I would on Wednesday, I popped in the next shows of Sex and the City and ran my 5 miles on the treadmill again today. :) It was raining from the heavens this morning! I weighed a whopping 1lb less post-run from the sweat loss!!! I've never weighed myself before and after a run before, but since my sister owns a set of scales I thought I'd try it. I'd love to see what would happen after a good 20 miler! :0 After lunch I was right back at my usual weight....lol.
My afternoon snack nearly set off the fire alarms....oops! Dad chucked it outside on the deck since it was smoking so badly! LOL.
Since afternoon snack was an epic fail, Dinner had to step up it's game! Say hello to Cajun chicken nachos and awesome Chicken Parm. MMMMMM!
And of course, my sisters and I had to have a mini-photo shoot...lol.
Bib & Wave assignment for Boston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's amazing to me with a faster BQ I get a bib number that's nearly 3000 spots 'slower,' :0 I do understand why though. The field has approximately 36000 participants this year compared to last year's 24+000!!!! Holy smokerinos!
I don't know what could have prompted THIS note waiting for me this morning, lol. Doesn't everyone smokify the house when popping smart pop?!?! ;)
We headed over to an all you can eat Stir fry buffet for lunch. Super duper awesome!
Trudy is working on her photography skills. JK. ;)
Today is my rest day for running. I'll return to Halifax early tomorrow morning and head out for an easy run before Sunday's Moose Run 25k. I honestly plan on pacing myself for this race. 25k is not a joke distance and requires smart recovery in order for me to continue on with my quality training runs in the plan. Therefore I'm aiming for somewhere between 2:00-2:15 on Sunday. I will not push the pace, I will not push the pace, I will not....." You get the drift.
I hope you've had a spectacular week so far and thanks so much for visiting GGR!
