One more of the season

Heres my life right now:
-Working 40(+) hours a week
-Applying to 4 medical schools
-Training for my final half marathon of this season
-Yoga twice a week
-Volunteering 2 hours a week
-Sleeping 8 hours a night

And yes, sleeping 8 hours a night is a commitment I make to myself regardless of how busy I am. And yes, Im busy. Im also considering the possibility of moving out of my parents home in Dartmouth and into my sisters place in Halifax.

Marathon fever is still taking over me but since I dont really have the money to go to Disney/Bermuda for a January marathon, I think Im just gonna start "training" for a marathon (doing long runs of above 13 miles) and just (haha) do the Bluenose or Ottawa marathon in May. I literally have a craving to do longer runs.

One reason why I know my long runs have been going so well lately...weekly speed workouts! Yes, they are hell and tortuous but they are making me so much stronger. Another! Stretching, core work and strength workouts, yes please!

So, one more half marathon this year. Next Sunday, my father, my sister and I will be running the PEI half marathon. I am ready for this race. My training has been going well and I just feel ready. I am going to run a sub 2:10 race. Theres my lululemon esque goal for the day. Im just so beyond excited for this race.

Anyways, hopefully I can start back up with this blog (especially my experience with some new Personal Distance Record training runs) but thats enough for now. Ill leave you were some TRI pictures :) 

Pre-tri. Looking happy, but I was freezing!

Looking like a sketch bag.

Watching the men go, I was now a few minutes from entering the water.

SO CLOSE ( we had waited for 2 hours )

Off we go. This is an intense action shot of me.

Done swimming, bring on T1

Tank on

LS on.... done!

And fast foward to the end of the race. My actual time was 1:51, 3 hours was the clock for the olympic distance tri'ers

Stuffing my face with food...obv.
