Day 14 ~ surprised and entertained

Day Fourteen ~ August 16th, 2018

I gave Zombie, Run a go this morning and I was surprised that I enjoyed it! I am not a fan of zombies or apocalyptic story lines, but this is actually entertaining. Seeing as there are seven seasons out now and obviously I am starting at the beginning, I have lots of story to run to for the foreseeable future. It should keep me well through the winter months so that is a major plus as I need all the motivation I can get come winter time.

Day 13 ~ DOMS riddled but I love it

Day Thirteen ~ August 15th, 2018

I got up and out of the house this morning early for a run. Typically I have great intentions of getting out early enough to completely beat the summer heat, but it doesn’t happen too often! My legs and butt are sore from leg day yesterday so only did a quick run (with a decent pace) to get everything warmed up before I started core for my lifting split.
The core is already achy so I imagine it’ll be a bit worse come tomorrow morning. In any case I’ll be taking a some more BCAAs and that should help with the DOMS.

Day 12 ~ recharge!

Day Twelve ~ August 14th, 2018

I had a fairly chill day at home.

I wasn’t all that motivated to do my workout today either. Once I got started it was great, but the lead up was lacking in pep big time.

Aside from my workout, playing some video games, and getting a few things done around the house… I didn’t do anything else. It was nice to have such a quiet day on all fronts because it’s a rarity to me!

Day 11 ~give me logic

Day Eleven ~ August 13th, 2018

I nearly forgot to post today! It’s almost bedtime and I just remembered to do it so saved the video game and zipped on the net to get it done!

*phew*

Do you think that men are more rational and women are more emotional?

I think that as the norm goes men are typically more rational than women as they often times aren’t as emotional. But I don’t think this is cookie cutter applicable to genders either. I know plenty of men who are insanely emotional, more so than some women I know, and it is difficult to handle. To be clear, irrational, emotional stuffs is not easy to handle whichever gender you are though so no singling out on my part. I’m personally not an overtly emotional person (being a woman), I rarely let my emotions out-of-the-gate so to speak even in hot-headed situations.

Day 10 ~ cool day, trails and feeling good

Day Ten ~ August 12th, 2018

This morning was race day via MEC at the Myra Canyon Trestles! It was bloody cold, like a 20 degree drop in temp cold, so a big of a shock to the system. I’ve never run this area so it was awesome to head out and see a bunch of new. I opted to leave my phone behind because the results were chip timed and I just wanted to enjoy myself and be oblivious to pace/distance. It was a good decision because I was moving faster than I thought I was at 5min 22-24sec per km and my ankle was giving me some achy grief by about 7k-ish. It would be cool to do this race again next year, but my time big time.

Day 9 ~ antsy, anticipation

Day Nine ~ August 11th, 2018

Silly me hitting save draft button instead of the publish button on this post last night!

Only the daily question for today, the journal entry is physically written this evening, so just a quick post again.

Presented with the opportunity to be immortal would you take it?

While the idea seems very interesting I don’t think I would take advantage of such an opportunity. The biggest reason being that my loved ones would die and I wouldn’t. This alone would make being immortal a huge challenge!

Cheers ~ ✌

Day 8 ~ smokey sunshine & anticipation

Day Eight ~ August 10th, 2018

I wanted to go for a long board ride this evening but opted for a walk instead. I figured it wouldn’t be a great idea to go two days before a race if I ended up falling again. It would be very unlikely, but I am really looking forward to the race on Sunday so better safe than sorry!

It is another hot day here and as smokey. The weather network kept telling me via my phone that it was ‘sunny/mostly sunny’ but you wouldn’t know it because of all the smoke! It would be awesome if it cleared up by Sunday so the views from up at the race site can be enjoyed because they are spectacular.
