Ugh - feeling quite upset in the tummy - eek! Hope I don't get what everyone else had...

On a good note I am just cooling down from a great run. I really pushed myself and ran 4k straight at 7:16/km pace. Super happy with that! Been feeling like my endurance is down and my speed is down and that was a really good run for me. Now to build on that!

Good morning!

Yesterday was a tough day. I had clinic from 9-6, attended a birth in the middle of it, and felt crappy all day. Laid down a few times - just low level nausea. Went to my run class even though I was feeling dreadful at that point, and figured I would do what I could do. We did about 8.75k. The first 2.5k was a run to the hills. I walked a wee bit as I was feeling so lousy. We did 3x 500m hill repeats (so 3k in total). I ran the hills, now with stomach cramps, but did walk the declines. I walked the 3k back - just wishing for a magic taxi to come pick me up. I felt dreadful. Came home, had a bath and hit the sack. I slept about 9-10 hours and feel back to normal this morning.

Happy to report that I am down to 212! That is a total of 58# lost!

13 more pounds to leaving the 200s!!! That concept seems so surreal.

I skipped my run (which I hate doing, and feel so guilty about) on Thursday as I felt nauseous and so tired. I figured that the rest day would help me get back on my feet, and that a run might prolong my illness.

So I rested and now I feel back to normal!

Today is an easy run day of just 3k run steady. I am heading to a client's birth after that. I'd like to get in a bike ride today, too - I need the cross-training. Maybe DH and I can go out together.

I went for Pho soup on a quick date with DH and so didn't weigh this morning: that broth is so salty I have noticed that my weight is higher the next morning with presumed water retention. Will eat light today and flush it out. Breakfast so far has been a coffee, a banana and a small piece of fresh sourdough bread with a bit of butter. I will eat better after my run. We went shopping last night so the house is stocked with yummy food. I think dinner will be fish and stir-fry veg.

Yesterday's run went really well: just over 21 minutes. It was hot, humid and sunny (go Summer 2012!) but I ran well, and there was a breeze that made it bearable.

Today's run is 10k. I am up early to eat. Leaving home to join my running group in about 30 minutes. Breakfast was a yogurt, banana and coffee so far.

Yesterday I snacked too much. Back on the wagon today.

The weather looks ominous outside: grey, about to rain, but still getting warm for so early in the day (already 25c).

My little one wants to choose smiley guys:

Got my 10k in. It was an easy paced run. Did it in 1:24 so 8:19/km/. Glad to be done. Was hot and humid and at times the air was so heavy and still. A nice breeze was around some corners, but some places it was miserable. All done!

Yesterday was a 4k tempo run. I was pretty slow but got it done without stopping.

Today was 8.5k with 4k of hill repeats. Quite sore now. Did it in 1:13:00. Feeling proud because I was called out to a birth last night at 1am and didn't get more than a couple hours of broken sleep afterwards, and had 8 hours of clinic before meeting my running group. Glad to be home. Heading into the bath.

Had a great homemade chocolate banana shake with bananas, cocoa powder,milk, water, and hemp hearts. Tired.

Yesterday was a 5.5k steady run in the light rain. Was nice for a change. Ran it at about 7:30/km. Did stop for about 2-3 minutes and walk briskly as I needed my ventolin and let my lungs cool down a bit. After that I was good and not only caught up with the gals I had been running with, but surpassed them!

Today I splurged. A lot.

First, I bought a pair of Newton Gravity shoes. Love them. Going to use them for my shorter runs for now, and work in to them. I don't know if I will use them for longer runs or what, but will stick with them for my short runs and see. I really wanted to try a more minimalist shoe that what I have been using, even if I don't transition into them full-time.

Then I bought a pair of Nike Free 3s! These are my new shoe-shoes. I needed shoes for work and everyday use and I really liked how they felt. I might run a bit in them, I don't know. I will use them to strengthen my feet.

THEN I bought some Cw-X compression tights. They are 3/4 length. I wanted to try them and they feel comfortable. I have varicose veins getting more prominent as I lose weight and I want to support them. I also wanted to see how my legs felt after a longer run with the tights. And, I like the feeling of them on. I have a pouchy belly so I like the support of them there, too.

Today is a rest day. Just me, my coupon for 20% off at the running store, and my VISA.

I will get some core in today. Weight is sitting at 212-214.

Oh, and I got a corporate donation to my Autism Speaks ToT race charity fund from DH's work! Super happy! Have raised over $1300!

Yesterday was a quick 3.5k run in my new Newton's. Back to my Sauconys for my 12k run today. Have been worried about the distance this week: I have not run 12k before! Eek! I'll be happy when it is underway and I can stop worrying!

Weight is stable - I haven't been as careful in restricting my calories and carbs so I am going to get back on that.

Breakfast:

small juice box
1 cup oatmeal with 2 tbsp chia seeds
1 small yogurt pot
coffee with milk and agave syrup
water

It is cooler this morning so hoping the run goes well. Tried my compression tights last night and really like them. They look AMAZING on me!

Have a great day!

Done! 12k in 94 minutes which is 8:00/km. Yay! Done and feeling it! Sore feet, quads, and many other muscles!

Now treating myself to a few episodes of Breaking Bad and an easy afternoon.

I am excited!

I am running with the NF Canada Dream Team for my October 14th Scotiabank Half Marathon! My son, who is 14, has NF1 and I am thrilled to be able to participate in raising funds for NF Canada in his honour. It is so hard to watch your child struggle with a disease, and I can use this event to channel my feet on the pavement to raising funds for this terrific charity.

I'd so appreciate if anyone donated, big or small.

Started off my fundraising well with two donations of $50 from a former client and her husband. I need to raise $400 more, but am hoping to raise $1500 in total.

Yesterday I went for a 30 minute moderately hard bikeride before dinner. Did 8k. Felt good to be back on the bike!

Today I will do 20-30 minutes core, 15 upper body weights, and a 4k steady run.

My weight is sitting right at 212-214. I need to rev things up. I have been allowing in little treats and carby foods too often. Today I will be great! I want to see 209 within 2 weeks.

Breakfast:
coffee with milk and agave syrup
3/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 cup blueberries.

Today was busy with an early birth that saw me up at 530. Then I came home for a quick shower and headed to clinic for a few hours of appointments. Then I wolfed down some dinner ( mistake) and headed out the door for my running class. We did 9.5k including 5k of hill training. Sooooo glad when it was done!!

Tried KT tape for me sore knees. I had knee pain during the run. He true test will be tomorrow when I will see if the knees are sore or not.

Tomorrow is 5k temp0, but I may shorten that and go to an open house for the local dragon boaters, canoeists, and stand up paddle larder association as I am keen on all three for next summer. Excellent cross training methinks! Hoping to get some water time tomorrow and especially hope to try e paddle boarding. I live very close to Lake Ontario and there are lots of little inlets where recreational boating and paddling take place. Why has it taken me so long t get on the water here?!?
