|First day of grade 12!|
|First day of grade 8! (Not sure why he looks so short|
here....he's taller than me!)
So my half training is winding down right now for Oakville on the 23rd. Of course now I'm at the point where I'm thinking that I didn't train well enough and I'm going to miss my 1:55 goal. I haven't run less than 20km for my LSD's all summer and I've done my tempos and track work, and I've even run the course (which is about 300m long GRRRRRR), but it's hard not to let your mind play tricks on you and cast a negative light on things. I suppose all I can do is go out there and do my best, and then bitch about it when it's over. Oh, and now I'm realizing that my (other) bosses sister who works Sundays with me is going to be away during Scotia on the 14th. I got her permission to take the day off last month but we only have one other girl who can work a Sunday breakfast shift so I know that I'm going to get into a fight with her when I bring it up tonight. Life! Ahhhhh!
I've signed up to train with a trainer at the gym and learn how to use the kettle bells once I finish Scotia next month. I paid for 8 sessions so that should hopefully be more than enough for me to figure things out and get a workout plan that I can remember. I'm planning on looking like Linda Hamilton by the spring so look out. Ok, that's obviously a joke but I really need to build up my legs and I'm not to keen on machines so this is my plan. On a side note, who the hell can afford a trainer full time?! They are expensive!!!
On Sunday I participated in the Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope with my stepmom who is a survivor. We both raised over $1,200 so I'm proud of us for that. This is such a deadly cancer because there is no prescreening for it and it gets misdiagnosed a lot of the time. I have known of 4 ladies who have had it. My stepmom is the only one who is a survivor. Please take the time to learn the symptoms and remember them always. They may just save your life.
|My stepmom made us speed walk this thing. I did a 27km LSD with hills the day before. Nice!|
