Fitness Friday - Week 2

Well friends I am happy to report that I am feeling much more balanced this week. Last week I really struggled with the back and forth between the house and the apartment. I was also battling some training guilt. We have a lot on the go, so taking time away from my To-Do List to squeeze in my training, was something I was struggling to justify.

This week I realized setting time aside for myself actually makes me much happier and much more productive. So taking that extra hour/day for me is just best for everyone.

Regaining my Running Fitness is still a work in progress. But I did manage to do a couple mile intervals at an 8 min/mile pace on the treadmill this week - which was HUGE milestone and ego Boost. Granted it was only 2 miles, and 2 miles with walk breaks in between, but it felt really good none-the-less.

The freezing cold weather continues here in Toronto and my  So in an effort to embrace this Canadian Climate and to honour my Dad, my family has signed up for Heart and Stroke's Curl for Heart. Last year I did a ton of Fundraising with the Happy Heart Project, and I know so many of you supported me. I also know there are so many worthy causes out there, and we obviously can't support them all. So I don't have a crazy ambitious Fundraising Goal this time around. But if are able and are interested in donating even just $5 to our team - You Can Visit my Fundraising Page. The money obviously goes to a cause that is near and dear to my heart both literally and metaphorically.
