Hello! It’s been a while…
When I wrote my last post, I had no idea how long of a break I would take. Turns out four months away from blogging flies by!
I had three main goals for this year when we decided not to sign up for any big races. I am happy to say I achieved all of them, with a few smaller ones accomplished, too!
Goal #1: Visit the mountains often
This was a smashing success with 17 weekends spent out there, and 11 days for summer vacation!
We hiked a ton, and I trail ran and SUPed to my heart’s content.
I even paddled in my first SUP race in Canmore and hope to make it an annual event!
Goal #2: Heal my injuries/ailments
After taking a break from running, strengthening like crazy, and seeing numerous people, I found a chiropractor who I credit for getting me back to pain-free running!
One day in late July I realized not one thing hurt when I was running, or afterwards. My hamstring, glutes, piriformis, iliac crest, knee, and hip were all quiet.
I’m still working on my weaknesses so I can continue! However, new aches are constantly popping up, which I attribute to goal three.
Goal #3: Get pregnant
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a couple photos. I am excited to say I am now past the halfway mark of my pregnancy and am due on March 6, 2015.
I’m still trying to stay active with trail running, biking on the trainer, and strength training. Hopefully I can continue throughout!
We ran a 12km trail race on our sixth anniversary. I was 17 weeks, and have definitely ‘popped’ since then.
Other than that, my sister had a precious baby boy at the end of July so I now have an amazing niece and a nephew!
The first year of my garden box was a blooming success.
And it was our hottest summer I can remember.
What’s new in your world?
