Wednesday:50 minutes relaxed
Thursday:58 minutes in Calgary
Friday:70 minutes with 2 miles at tempo and 6X hard 90 sec hills
Saturday:48 minutes easy
Sunday:Travel (2 flights, 3 hrs of layover, and 5 hrs driving)
Monday:61 minutes with Houston
Tuesday:51 minutes with 1/2/3/4/4/3/2/1/ hard, half recovery.
So Friday and Saturday of this past week I ran at my mothers house in Athabasca, Alberta, Canada. For those of you that don't know where that is....drive North to the middle of nowhere and then take a left and drive another 15 miles. Houston loves running there. I hate it. It's over 10 degrees colder than Calgary, and its boring. There are almost zero turns and its all up hill. I took a few pictures along the way just to give you an idea of how cold and boring it was. Above is the turn from My Mom's house. Both directions look this boring so I only posted the one.
As for my fitness, well it is coming back I guess. My goal is to run the Winnipeg marathon in June so my schedule will start January 2nd. RIght now I am just doing whatever I feel like in hopes tha I will be prepared when my schedule starts.
And Maddy, well she is just as cute as ever. 10 1/2 weeks old and very much ahead of her time. She babbles all day long and can even shake a rattle if you help her get her grips on it. Shes over 100 % for her height, weight, and head size. Shes my little muffin and I love her more than anything! She did awesome on all four flights and is happy at home now in Starkville!
We only have a few days left of our holidays and we hope to spend most of them together as a family. I want to get as much cuddle time with my muffin before I head back to work.
