What a week… I also am lacking internet still so short blog again… Maybe…
Completed my run tonight as per my half marathon plan, checking off Janathon and run streak day 16 and adding KMs to the Earthathon relay for #RunderfulRunners!
January 16, 2015: 7 km run
Today, I ate a lot and a lot of it was not very healthy. Why did I do this to myself? Because I wanted to and it’s part of my job. I got to sample a bunch of new/existing innovative food products. I do enjoy that part of my job because how could I promote something without getting a first hand experience and learning more about the companies that produce these delicious products we all know and love. So, I had perogies, cake, cookies, some energy bars, and some lattes. Good thing I had a longer run tonight so I could do all the
sampling indulging I had done.
Hopefully Internet is fixed tomorrow and I can load up my run plan and update my blog instead of blogging on my phone. Thank you everyone for being so kind as this week has been tough. We’ve secured a lawyer and will hopefully have life sorted out… Until then, thanks again for bearing with my vagueness regarding my anger. I am excited for Sunday’s run because that means I can run outside in day light!
I had Apple pie and lattes today…
One more for the road:
Janathon is half way through!
For the day and for the earthathon relay I continued my run streak with a 1 km run for #runderfulrunners.
January 13, 2015: 1 km run and 15 minute N+TC Beach Balance Workout
This about sums up how I feel… working out and running does not counter the amount I would like to eat.
Sorry I’m not too chatty… Still a very angry person right now.
January 13, 2015: 5 km run
I don’t have much to say. I don’t have much I can say. Some stuff is going on and well it needs to be kept confidential as much as I’d like to scream and yell and punch and vent it out here, I put on my favourite pair of running shoes and did my training run on the treadmill. We were back in extreme cold weather alerts this morning. This means stay indoors unless you really have no choice.
Janathon, run streak day 13, and 5km Earthathon relay contributions to #RunderfulRunners completed.
Time to try to get some sleep tonight…

January 14 Run: 38:00 (mm:ss), 5.17 km, 7’25″/km (iPod)
Tonight’s run does not include full pics of the treadmill reads since the run was split into two intervals: a 30 minute set plus an 8 minute set. This happened again by setting the treadmill to 30 minutes at the beginning when I intended to run maybe 26 (3 kms). After 30 minutes I was at 4 kms and felt good enough that it wouldn’t hurt me to run 8 more minutes (1 km). The treadmill read 3.21 miles in 38 minutes, so my pace here was pretty amazing, 7’21″/km. I did try to push myself a whole lot harder.
No, unfortunately, I’m not 100% better. However, during the entire run, I only had 1 cough attack which wasn’t so bad! Each day the symptoms seem to change a little bit but today I do feel better. Headache is gone and my nose isn’t running faster than me anymore! I am still nauseous at times and feel sick to the stomach but that little bug can kiss it while I suck it up and run. My chest still feels heavy and throat is still scratchy.
Since I’ve been sick for quite a few days now, I’ve decided I should just fake it until I make it. Who cares if I’m not feeling well? I’ve got to get in some kilometres and that’s just what I did! It’s been 2 weeks of Janathon now and I haven’t given a rest day yet to running! How can I? Your runs and blog posts are keeping me inspired, I must keep going!
Thank you for being my motivation right now!
