On to Happier Things

I wanted to Thank You all so much for all your support and advice on my last post. I never did hear anything more, but I have decided to start watermarking all of my pictures and will keep my fingers crossed that, that is the end of it.

So let's move on to happier things shall we.

I mentioned a few weeks back that one of my goals for 2015 is to finally run a Sub-2 hour Half Marathon. But the only one I had signed up for was the very hilly Bluenose Half which I will be running after several crazy busy work days. I knew this race wasn't going to be my goal race, the conditions are just not right to strive for a PR.

So when I was contacted by Burnbrae Farms to find out if I would interested in running the Mississauga Half Marathon on May 3rd with them, I said "Heck Yes!". I have not done this course before, so I am looking forward to tackling something new. And soon after agreeing - an adorable package filled with chocolate and eggs arrived at my door.

Any time I get a chocolate delivery is a good day!

My fuelling is taken care of, but there is still that pesky business of training... so I talked to Coach Michelle, and we have been working on our game plan.

I have obviously not had ideal half marathon training, since I spent the first few months of year rehabbing and rebuilding my endurance. But my body has adapting really well and is feeling stronger than it has in a really long time.

So Michelle has been kicking my butt the last few weeks with some tough speed workouts and tempo runs, and we are going to give it our best shot to make it happen over the next 29 days.

I am never properly prepared - it is kind of my thing - I am always rehabbing or battling something. So that is nothing new, but I want to do my best and train hard this April. All while keeping my fingers crossed I can make the gains I need to get that elusive PR.

Making my Pro Compression Gear my BFF right now!
