Day #4

8km evening run in light rain

Amelie has been asking to run with me for weeks, so I took her along. At first she wanted to do the full planned 8km with me, but after 3km we turned around and she did 6km. We had a few walking breaks on the way back, but Amelie did very well – I could tell she was hurting. Hope she won’t be too sore the next few days… Lily also ran along, but she was a little annoying today weaving left and right in front of us.

I felt pretty good, probably because the pace was a little slower than it would have been had I run by myself. I added 2km in our neighborhood running to the Middle School and picked up the pace. All in all, good workout.

Day #2

7km evening run

Went okay, as expected. Shore inline trail was pretty crowded, so there was a lot weaving between people. Either I get out early in the morning or I need to wait for rainy season to have my quiet. But I cannot really complain as it is was a gorgeous sunset tonight. I noticed that my hips are pretty tight – sitting in an office all day is starting to take its toll. Once I have lost some substantial weight I should consider some stretching and strength build up again.

Just couldn’t get my butt out of the door this morning, although I did get up. It is dark at 6am which doesn’t help. I am annoying the family with my 6am alarm that can only be turned off when scanning a specific barcode…
