christmas vacations, eat lots, sleep not much, play outside in the snow, famiy reunion, crazy storms, kids screaming all over, presents, lots of them!!! two more days of this and i will be back to New mexico in my quiet life. kind of looking forward to the quiet routine!
Today was my birthday!!! well, it s actually tomorow but i wanted to celebrate it today as i will be traveling tomorow... And my coach had a special present for me. It was a fun workout to do on the treadmill. It was a very simple one; run a full marathon on that silly moving carpet and get the work done!
Well, i had to make it to UQTR and use there gym to get acces to a treadmill. My tready was facing the vertical bikes so i would have the awesome chance to stare at people riding there verticale bike for the next 3h......
As i started the run, i setted the pace to just under 7 min miles and realized my ipod was broken and that it would be a pure test of will power to get this done as i had zero distraction. After 20min of running, there was a giant pot hole of water around me tready and i was trying to figure out who i would get to the end of this alive. At 50 min, i had lost all interest in life and wanted to walk away so bad!!!
half way into it, focusing on getting lots of gatorade in me and get into a rythme...and at the same time, decided to give the ipod another try and a miracle happen! i was working just fine! I was now rocking the place crusing happy and strong on ''THE CARS" soundtrack!!!! I was lightning McQueen driving full throttle on the carpet and by the 2h mark, i was comfident and my spirit was high that i would make it alive! well, i finaly finished the dam workout and got a few stare at me from people wanted to jump on the treadmill and showing me the ''25minutes max time on treadmill'' a play it innoncent telling them it was the first time ever that i was running and wasnt aware of these rules!!!! oh well, it was my b-day after all!!!
I finished the day with a easy 2km swim with some kicking and call it a day!
I also got some solid trainer session during the vacation and even if it wasnt my regular routine, i made this holiday a good one on both the family and training side of things and i m very happy about it!
tonight, i have to defend my tittle of the inner tube sliding world champion, so i will have a few more anaerobic effort to do but it s all good...!!!
