Yesterday we broke records for heat here in Edmonton. We hit 31 celcius I think which is insane for this time of year. I didn't really get to experience it since I was working all day, but I'm not a huge heat person anyway so no harm done. Last week it was snowing just to give you a point of reference haha.
Then last night the wind really picked up. I don't know how fast it was or anything, but I DO know I couldn't sleep. I woke up more than every hour when I did sleep. This was not made any easier by my boyfriend and dog getting up to watch tv and enjoy themselves at 11pm. Again I had to work AND had to get to the gym so I had no such opportunity.
Crazily enough, I DID get out of bed, not even feeling too much of that familiar I-could-just-go-back-to-bed feeling, and made it to the gym. I even ran my 4 miles that I was planning for today so I'm feeling very good doing my little chair leg lifts at work right now. I have no doubt that with the help of my knee brace I will be more than ready for my 10k in June.
Oh happy day
