Thursday

• Slept in, late for work

• Lunch with good friends, including Mel who is hanging in there and remarkably positive with her mysterious injury

• More stupid traffic on the way home, +15 minutes on the commute

• Clinic night – discussed food for our end of session get-together next week (yum)

• Everyone asking what my goal is for the half - I have no idea

• Another hot run – slow 6K (It’s killing me)

• Grocery shopping with the gang for our cottage weekend in Ottawa

• Late dinner

• So You Think You Can Dance (no abs or arms tonight, too sore!)

• Homemade power bars (recipe + pics to follow soon)

• And now... bed time

great to see you today :D and a mystery it remains... ugh. have an amazing time in Ottawa if I don't chat with you before then, safe travels there and back, and hope you get a nice 'tour' of the city since you haven't been there before! Looking forward to your report.

Have a great weekend! I say figure out your half goal in the first few miles. :) After your PR-smashing performances of late, this one really is no pressure!

Homemade power bars? Maybe you should see them rather than give us the recipe!

Have a good memorial weekend... wait, you probably don't have memorial day this weekend huh? I'm an idiot american ;) Well have a good weekend at your cottage, sounds fun.

And yeah, having someone to be accountable too makes a massive difference, it's worth it, because getting up in the morning for me isn't an easy feat!

I LOVE SYTYCD!!!! In fact it makes me want to workout because I'm SO amazed by what these people can do with their bodies!

Oh and it's also the only show that makes me want to give up my career as a lawyer and become a lyrical dancer instead! Ahahahah! :oP
