Can we first talk about my new sweater?
This week has been busy buuuuuuuut, today is my last day of work for the week – actually, I am off of work until NEXT Wednesday!!! Tomorrow will be spent packing and then Friday morning, 7am (gross), I’ll be flying to SUNNY SUNNY & WARM Phoenix!!!!!!!!!!! For a weekend of field hockey and little half marathon squeezed in there! I’ll land back in Ottawa Tuesday morning…probably feeling like my body got trampled on. Buuuuuuuut, I’ll have been wearing flip flops for 4 days so I won’t care!! lol
Monday’s workout was the usual – 5 miles, zone 1 heart rate. Followed up by strength work – squats, clams, TRX rows, pushups and plank work.
Last night was track practice. OMG. It nearly killed me.
4×400 (93s, 88s, 86s, 85s) at which point FG said, “we’re probably going to pay for this later on”
1x mile (6:27) – let’s just note here that I was the second fastest – but FG did hers in 5:50!
4×400 (88, 84, 84, 83). And that’s when I just about keeled over. Dead.
I got home, re-heated my leftover dinner of veggies + tofu peanut stir fry, sat on the couch and cracked a beer.
Abby had sympathy fatigue.
Speaking of Abby…she’s done something to her back. I don’t know what, but starting last night she wouldn’t climb stairs. She walks fine, but refuses to climb stairs or jump in general. Soooo, she’s on mandatory “cage rest”
I’m a bit worried because tomorrow night she’s going to the kennel until my parents pick her up Sunday night…but I think at the kennel she’ll be confined more which might be a good thing. Please keep her in your thoughts.
