Guess what? I went for a 6K run this morning! It felt good to get outside and be active on the first official day of SUMMMAAAHH! Speaking of which, my summer goals are going swimmingly, but we’re not talking about that today (although look for an update soon – you’re going to be so proud).
I’m writing this post to give a little inside scoop of what I’ve been up to as of late:
Recently went to Trinity Bellwoods and had a romantic picnic with the Lotus Leaf crew. We hung out, played Cards Against Humanity and drank pitchers of yummy sangria. The perfect post-work activity. Thanks again Tori for setting all this up for us!
Earlier this week I collaborated with online shopping site “BRIKA” and DIY/lifestyle blog “My Little Secrets” to film a fun how-to video! If you’re someone who loves making super cute jewellery for the summer season, you won’t want to miss out on this one. I am editing now and hopefully it will be posted on the blog next week!
Below are my snazzy Dr. Martens sneakers. They’re wonderful and comfy.
Alright, now for some big news. The reason I ran 6K this morning was because I’ve started training for my FIRST half-marathon in October! To be honest, I ran 4.5K without stopping then walked the rest because the heat was starting to beam down hard.
The whole idea of a half-marathon sounds incredibly intimidating, but I’m motivating myself to believe that in a few months it will be a piece of cake to run 22K. It’s something I’ve always wanted to accomplish but never got around to planning. UNTIL NOW! Yay! I think marathons are a great way to stay in shape, meet amazing people and be able to travel different places. In the next few years, Boston Marathon anyone? Marathon de Paris? Perhaps. One day.
Along with my new workout routine, I’m going to be even more cautious of my diet and making sure I eat as healthily as possible. Although, cheat days are and always will be acceptable.
If you have any tips or tricks on running a half-marathon, please do not hesitate to comment below! Will need all the help I can get. As always, I’ll keep you updated on my training because whether you like it or not my dear readers, you are coming on this adventure with me! 🙂
That is all for now. Have a great rest of the weekend and talk to you soon!
