Ummm, ok, something crazy happened this weekend…I booked a trip to….
TOKYO. I know, I was in Africa earlier this year and now I’m headed to Asia – whaaaaat?! The bridesmaid I shared a room with while in Africa messaged me this weekend and said, “There’s a seat sale to Tokyo in June, let’s fly there together for 10 days and meet up with the bride & groom!” (who are traveling for 8 months for their honeymoon!) My dad said he would look after Abby and work told me to go and enjoy my trip…so a few hours later, Sophie and I were booked in for the second trip of a lifetime in 6 months!!!!!
Ok, back to reality with some Abby cuteness!! This was her after I finished a treadmill run last week.
Sigh. Running. Remember how I was making good progress and was up to 4 miles? Yeah, well, I went and played field hockey last Thursday (first night of the outdoor season and it was 80F but before you start worrying that Canada is melting, it’s currently 43F. Sigh.) Anyway, back to hockey…what a great night it was!!
With 30 minutes to go in the game, I limped off the pitch…but obviously stayed around to enjoy post-game beers!
Thankfully I can still do full strength workouts – even focused hammie exercises like this 1-legged pull-in doesn’t bother it!
I was told that these strength based exercises are controlled which my hamstring is strong enough to do, but running (and especially sprinting) is much less controlled which my hammie is not into dealing with right now apparently. Soooo…just staying patient…
TG and his daughter (the mini) were at my house this weekend – the weather wasn’t great so we did inside things like getting our nails done…well, TG just “supervised. lol
I just got basic purple on my toes…
TG’s Dolly was of course with us this weekend…like TG, she is just too big for this world – this is her in Abby’s bed lol
And just so we’re clear, Abby is not the only dog on the street living the high life…this is Chimes…the neighbourhood stud chihuahua who tries to hump Abby at every chance he gets – despite Abby snapping at him EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. lol
