Yesterday I was finally finally FINALLY feeling pretty close to normal. Hallelujah. I started my day with a 5.38 mile run with a few stops. I’ve been stopping to walk on big hills all week so that my coughing attacks don’t go out of control. So far, so good. I also tried to take some GoPro photos but I still haven’t gotten the hang of it. Anyone have any tips? I feel like the quality isn’t as good as the self-timer app I use on my phone. I turned this one into B&W because the colour version did not look so great. The sky is so fuzzy. It drives me nuts.
Anyway, post-run I headed to Fresh to pick up a juice. My favourite is the beet root frappe. It’s SO SPICY from all the ginger they put in it – love it.
After a quick shower I headed downtown. First I went to adidas to exchange a sports bra (P.S. they are having 40% off almost everything in the store and online right now) and then I met up with my friend Alex who is the Community Coordinator at Sport Chek. First we went for treats and then we went to take some photos.
He sometimes needs stock photos for the Sport Chek Yorkdale account so I’m his pretend model…helps me out as well because then I get some non-selfie photos for my own account! 😉
Post-shoot I had my #HereToCreate class with adidas at 7pm and holy $h!t. I missed last week because of how sick I was so the class almost killed me. It was Julian Ho’s PRIMAL class so a lot of animal movements aka in squat position almost the whole time. My legs are still burning and I’m sure it’ll be a few days before they feel normal again.
I was too lazy to make dinner after class so I stopped by Whole Foods before going home and picked up some tofu and potato wedges.
And there’s a day in the life of summer vacation Xtina! Two cool things to note:
- I added up my miles for June and even with being sick last week (and running a total of 10 miles), I was still able to hit 131.9 miles for the month!
- I can officially say that SeaWheeze is NEXT MONTH!!! I am over-the-moon excited. I can’t believe I haven’t run a race all year. So many people are coming out this year and my only goal for the entire trip/race is to have fun with my friends. I am counting down the days.
Today is Canada Day and it started with another 5+ mile run and will most likely be pretty relaxing. I have plans for the rest of the weekend so today will be low key. Hope everyone has an awesome long weekend. Happy Canada Day and Happy early 4th of July!
