I'm not really sure how to describe last Sunday. I woke up exhausted because I hadn't slept well the night before. You know... pre-race jitters should be gone at this point in my running career but apparently NOT. I was awake and ready to leave the house by 7:30. (Race started at 9:00) The temperature was hovering somewhere around -8 but, here in Calgary and especially down by the Bow River, you got to assume that there's going to be a windchill. Still, it was a warmer run than Kelowna =)
Complaint #1 - two portapotties for over 150 runners.
Complaint #2 - um, oh wait! the portapotties were on a slant... forward LOL
Other than that, the course, the company, the weather..... the FOOD!! it was all good. I grabbed a few photos:
I finished the run in 2:19:05 - this met my "B" goal. I always set three and so far, it's been working for me. I've never been disappointed in my finish times. This was my 13th half marathon. My 8th as an instructor. My 4th Hypothermic Half.....
and now we're training for the Big Run.
Down time? what's that?
**bonus** Richard bought me a spa package for my birthday. I'm heading there tomorrow for a hot stone massage, pedicure and facial. I'm a spoiled princess

So, rather that try to kid myself into believing that I'll get back at it, I think I'm going to stop thinking about the bootcamp and focus on what I have been doing.
Right now, I'm instructing TWO half marathon clinics. The way the schedules work, I have three week overlap =) which means I have to be REALLY organized two days a week and I run four. Plus cross-training. And the boys are home for two weeks. And I have a birthday to plan. And... and... and... oh yes, I actually work full-time. LOL, I knew I was missing something.
Today, I'm trying to get the housework and laundry done. One load is in the washer, one in the dryer.... so far so good. Everything is a WIP. If only I could just twinkle my nose and have it be done...

Day 19 Workout video for Thursday, January 21: Not done. No way I have any energy after Denise's class.
30 minutes cardio: done
Bonus Challenge for Thursday (optional) - to not say anything negative about yourself today. For one day, give yourself a break. No one is perfect, and you're doing the best you can. You're working hard to change your body, your habits and your life. It's not easy, so cut yourself some slack. Instead of criticizing your flaws, embrace them and forgive them. Loving yourself is harder than it seems, but you can do it. - DONE!!
