Wow – what a day! It finally stopped raining in Calgary so my movie/work marathon that’s been going on for the last several weeks came to a screeching halt. Felix enjoyed getting outside at the Trico Centre after he spent two hours there so I could work out.
I completed 5 miles on the treadmill (under 50 minutes) and then 7 miles on the bike (under 30 minutes) so I am pretty happy with myself. I’ve been pushing myself a little more each workout and by the time I’m done I’m sweating like a stuffed pig! Which by the way, segues nicely into my evening event which included Bonterra Trattoria and wild boar.Seriously. Have you ever seen a wild boar on a spit? It is something to behold, let me tell you. The food there was so delicious and the wine was divine! I saw good old Kendall Jackson vino and it took my back to the Port of Wines Wine Show in Halifax. Those were the days! Anyway, this evening I was lucky enough to get to hang out with fellow Calgary Stampede volunteers. What a good time: great food, wine and company. Made me proud to be a volunteer with such a terrific crew of people! Two of which will be joining the ALL-Alberta running team for the Cabot Trail Relay – woooowhooo!!!
Tomorrow is hill training. Still debating on location. If you have any recommendations, I am all ears!
Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!
