On one of the few times that I did have the opportunity to read any one's blog last week I randomly found the pacer at Scotia that I followed for the first 8k! It was this dude, Beaches Runner.
Noah had the unfortunate luck to sit beside me while I was inspecting my disgusting runners toes the other night. I don't think that he's had a fitful night's sleep since. I seriously thought that he was going to puke. LMAO
I started training with a personal trainer 2 days after running Scotia to work on my strength. I'm really enjoying it except my glutes are on fire about 3 days a week now. We're mainly using kettle bells, as per my request, although I tried out the TRX last week. I honestly didn't like it. My trainer (Shira) pointed out that I seem to dislike any exercise that requires me to use my body weight. I'm such a picky bitch.
I've signed up for two races in March. Burlington's own Chilly Half Marathon and then 'Older than Boston' Around The Bay 30K! I'm excited that I got accepted into a corral for ATB. Yay! I'm still on the fence about what I want to run for my first full marathon in May. It'll either be Mississauga or Ottawa. Either way I will run the full at one and the half at the other. Also, I will be running my full with Patty. As of now she wants to do Ottawa. As of now I want to do Mississauga. We'll see who wins. It'll probably be her. She secretly scares me. LOL Jokes.
Today is November 12 and I was overdressed in crops and a tshirt for my 10K run this morning. WUWT?!
I went on a Daily Mile meet up run a couple of weekends ago and loved it. It was great to meet so many people that I've built online friendships with. Fortunately the next one is in Burlington. Unfortunately it is the same day as the Santa 5k that Kyle has agreed to run with me. I asked him if we are racing. He said no. Guaranteed that my non running 17yo son will still kick my ass. Brat!
I didn't get a long run last week because we went out to Queen's University for their open house. We really liked it there and it seemed like a good fit for Kyle. There is so much school spirit, it's a perfect place for him. And really, John A MacDonald went there! This Saturday I will be missing my long run again so that we can head out to Western University to see how they compare. I miss my long runs but I'll miss my boy more......
|ME: What does the Q stand for?|
KYLE: Queens, mom!
ME: Oh! LOL I thought we were at Guelph.
