Run, Ski, Run

My oldest daughter and I started off 2015 with a 1 km run together that was a lot of fun! She was so excited and is counting the days until we can go again.

It’s been close to 3 weeks since I ran and mentally that’s a hard thing to wrap my head around. I miss it. A LOT. That 1 km run with Lilly was great – just enough to get started again and not worry about my hamstring injury. I’ve been extremely hesitant to do anything because of my hamstring and wanting to get back into running slowly. Soccer is going to have to wait a little longer…..I think.

Last Friday and Saturday, I took Lilly skiing with the help my Dad. I wasn’t sure how much skiing I could do with Lilly so he was on the hill with her.

Day 1 Skiing

She’s improved a lot in just the two days and it’s only early in the season. I managed to do a few “runs” with her and then a few on my own (3 on Friday and two on Saturday). Saturday, I was able to ski with my running buddy, Krystol and our kids got to play together too!

Day 2 Skiing with friends!

Hilary rocked out her snowshoes and rocked out in my goggles for a while while Lilly skied some more.

Last night after unpacking our bags, having dinner and getting the girls to bed, I snuck on the treadmill for an easy 3k run 🙂 It was great and I had no pain in my hamstring. After I ran I stretched and did my physio exercises for my back. Wow, I sure sound like I’m falling apart! I’m feeling pretty good today.

Even though I’m not running a lot right now, I am doing the things I love with my family and you can’t beat that 🙂

How has your 2015 been so far?

Anyone skiing with their kids?

Coming up – 2015 goals, thinking about a FULL marathon and a shoe review!
