I stand by my analysis that post spring storm runs are the best runs. I felt really good today mentally; there's something about being emotionally rewarded by a sports team that can really give you a reset mentally.
Ran the back half of the #edmontonmarathon tonight. 2nd LSR of the week. It's amazing that 3 months ago leading up to my first half marathon this was the longest distance that I have ever ran, and it was my last long run leading up to the race, and I wanted to die. My goal race pace for that race was 6:00/km. Today, 3 days after putting in 28 km, I did that pace and had to walk at the end of every km to keep a 6:00/km pace...I guess hard work pays off!
My kids eat Mac and cheese at least twice a week. There is no denying I let them watch TV. I’m definitely not a perfect parent, but if I have done one thing I want my kids to remember is being outside. They run around like little wild people. Grass beneath their little feet, dirt & rocks in their hands. Racing, pretending, and wresting. I love watching them be their complete and total selves without the restraints of being indoors and having to “behave” for others. Let’s be real if you have toddlers there is only so long you can put on the facade of having it all together. Cooper barks like a dog (he says he is a big brown one) and Carter will put her arms in the air and let out her squeal of joy. Moments like these are the only ones that really matter.

A non-runner will never understand the joy that running gives you. Or the pain. ❤️ @ebibs
💥 SHIN SPLINTS💥
If you have suffered from shin splints you will understand how painful and frustrating they can be. If you haven’t, count your lucky stars.
Preventing Shin Splints - Our Number 1 recommendation would be to gradually commence or increase your physical activity. DO NOT throw yourself into training too early. Slowly increase your speed and output as your body adjusts to the intensity of work. When building up the duration and intensity of your training, try adding 10% each week.

Another successful night at the track! 8x800m repeats with 90 second walk breaks were on the menu tonight and honestly, I was really anxious for this run all day. The last time I did 800s, I blew up phenomenally and had to cut the workout short. But, I surprised myself and found this workout to be almost easy! Musta been the donut at work powering my through 😂🍩💕 Splits: 3:37, 3:40, 3:36, 3:37, 3:38, 3:37, 3:35, 3:34.
