Biking, Curriculum and Running

*crickets chirping*

I’m still here! Just took a few days off from blogging, no reason at all other then I just needed some down time and it’s been a busy week.

Monday night I managed to get in a 16k bike ride……..

bike Sept 14

Tuesday, Lilly’s school {yeah, she started school this year} had curriculum night. So Sai and I went and learned about what she is doing in class and how they are meeting their curriculum outcomes. It was a date night 😉

Wednesday I rode my bike for 13k (50 minutes). Sai bought me a light for my bike which is coming in handy as it’s getting darker earlier. Man, my legs do not like biking but I sure do. Or maybe I’m just working them too hard since I can’t run. Either way, this bike riding gig is kinda fun…minus the bugs in the face.

Today, I had another physio appointment and was told to increase my running distance: start with 7k and if my foot was good to run 10k on the weekend. The hamstring is feeling really great. My 10k race {Pace Bunny for the 1:10} is still on the table as is my PEI Half Marathon Oct 18th…. fingers crossed I’m good to go!

I’m planning on running tonight on the treadmill or maybe I’ll clean the bath tubs? It’s a toss-up!

That’s it, short and quick for today! Back to normal blogging soon.

Are you loving or hating the sun going down fast these nights?

How’s your week going?

Vote now: should I run on the treadmill or clean the bath tubs?

          • Just wrote this long winded post on the reasons why I may give up running. Whilst I am not happy I know that my greater health is more important and that there is other exercise out there for me. Lower impact exercise. Exercise that isn’t gruelling on my joints. Monday is my last appointment and decision day. Thanks for the support.

          • There was no good outcome. But as my last post reads… sometimes you just have to gently let go… I am sad, mad, disappointed and loads more but what makes me the most sad is to know that I’ve done this to my body. That I’ve ignored the desperate cries for help. I mean, what the x-rays show is not an accident… or it is… but I had the option to stop. I’ve had to stop now anyway… I don’t know. I guess I am a hot mess right now. I am still going through with my fundraising though! I am getting quite close to target and cancer is still a big thing for me… it took one of the people I loved the most away from me… and that was the main reason I started running.

          • I’m so sorry to hear it wasn’t a good outcome. I understand the sad, mad and disappointed part! Good for you to continue fundraising, THAT will make a difference and give you an opportunity to be a part of a community. Running will always be there when your body is ready, it may just take a while to get there. Keep your head up 🙂

          • Hopefully the outcome will be good… but I’ll take it if it isn’t, too…. Life is too precious to keep hurting myself. Even if it is doing one of the things I love the most.

  1. I miss summer already. I like the lights nights after work run in daylight still. I don’t hate dark nights but the sunny weather just makes me happier!
    I’d hit the treadmill 😉 🙂
    Glad your foot is improving! 🙂
