We’ve had some absolutely gorgeous sunrises here in the last few days…
Saturday we had absolutely BEAUTIFUL weather. I did 11 miles for a long run and wore shorts and a tank top and was sweating like crazy…and I loved it!! Ottawa looked and felt like spring was finally here!
But back to Saturday…I probably shouldn’t have done 11 miles. After a race like Cincinnati, where I depleted EVERYTHING in my muscles, I know that I should take at least a week fully off…but I got caught up in the warm weather…and suffered for it afterwards. Once I got home, I had NOTHING left in me. And I felt like absolute hell. I knew I needed to get some calories into me, but nothing I had at home was appealing…soooooo….
Saturday night I met up with some teammates for a couple (at least that was the plan) of drinks.
And OMG, the Mother’s Day Brunch. My dad took us to the Fairmont Chateau Laurier for the most INSANE spread of food I have ever seen in my life. Basically, ANYTHING you wanted was there. And it was held in the grand ballroom – super fancy schmancy!
