The front seat’s broken and the axel’s dragin’

Since we were up until the wee hours of the morning on Friday night/Saturday morning I was kinda rushed to get everything done before we headed to KFG’s house for the fish fry!  Staying up way to late and having wayyyy too much wine=dehydration and dragging my ass to get out the door!

I sat on the front step for about 10 minutes before I got up the energy to leave…..It was about 25C and the sun was shining so that helped!

Sporting Life 10K Race re-cap

Yesterday (Sunday May 10) was the Sporting Life 10K

about time

I know! It seams like we have been talking (shit) about this race forever!! I mentioned that my big mouth had gotten me into a bit of a situation with this run. I seam to have put myself out their with some pretty big projections about beating a couple of my co-workers that were running as well! It was all in good fun overall I didn’t really care where I finished as long as I wasn’t completely left behind!

Now that it is done I am pretty sure everyone else at work will be happy to not have to hear anymore about this run!

Interval workouts and car pooling

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone made it through St Patrick’s Day ok and that no one woke up to ashamed of their selves! ……Although I used to love drinking at the pub, starting at noon, dressed in tacky dollar store green beads, hats and what not……I stayed home this year!

Nothing like waking up in a ditch with a green beer moustache and a short chubby guy that last night was able to convince you he was a Leprechaun! (Again not judging!)

I worked Monday and Tuesday at the zoo 7-7. Long days. But I was able car pool wit KFG which always makes my drive go faster! And we were able to work out on our lunch break both days! We did interval training both days.I usually use the work gym after work as I usually work 6-6 so it isn’t as busy as it is mid-day but we still managed. I set the treadmill to 7.0-8.0 miles and 10.0 incline the first day and did 1 minute sprints in between super sets. It was a back and shoulder day on Monday.Tuesday was intervals again but I kept a flat incline and did 2 minute sprints ranging from 8.5-9.5 mph in between super sets Tuesday was bicep and chest day.

Being a shift worker has it’s advantages as I am off today and tomorrow, but on the down side I work all weekend! Friday -Sunday 7-7….yuck!

Speed run today, aiming for 4 miles. Tomorrow will be the long slow run day.

Why isn’t it summer yet?

September 25-27 I have been chosen (I am so surprised I was picked) to participate in The National Peace Officer’s Memorial Run It is such an honor to participate in this run. I will be on a team of 24 peace Officers throughout the Province (Officers come from all over the country in teams of 24) It starts in Toronto and lasts for three days, ending up in Ottawa at Parliament Hill. I will be responsible to run 2 10km legs in less then one hour each of the three days. This run is primarily to honor and pay tribute to Officers who have fallen in the line of duty. I am really looking forward to this run. Hopefully I am in physically able to do this, I have never something like this before. I may try to sneak out of the hotel after the first day……..
