I'm not aiming for ease...it's passion all the way!
This week, I am super busy with work because we leave for our vacation this Friday morning. We are headed for Varadero, Cuba for one week, and I'm excited. I will get to run in shorts and a tank top for the first time ever! I have been warned by my dear friend Miglena to wait at least two days before attempting a long run in order to let my body adapt to the temperature (she spoke from experience).
I ran 3K this morning and although I ended up doing fine, my lungs are giving me a bit of trouble these days. I always have a bit of a dip at this point in my monthly cycle. It's so easy for me to forget that asthma is going to impact my running journey. I mean how important are the lungs right? Thanks for the reminder Robin. The reason I started running in the first place was to improve my lung capacity. It seems to be working because tomorrow it will be 99 days without prednisone...and counting!
Joanie has skated and she brought tears to my eyes.
I am so proud of Joanie Rochette, she skated beautifully...and I am so sad for her loss! Bravo Joanie!
I may not have time to write again before I leave Friday morning. I also doubt I will be writing from Varadero, but I'll tell you all about our trip and the nearly naked running when I get back :)
Have a great week!!
