Fell off the blogging train.

Posted: October 4, 2010 by sarahbod in celebrities, run, Vancouver, Yoga

I’m going to make this quick. I have been running … just not blogging. Spending too much time on Perezhilton. (Lindsay’s escapades have been far more interesting then even my last running experience!)

This week I took on more runs around the beautiful seawall. Across several bridges….check out this veiw!! I took a quick break on the Granville bridge to snap this shot on Thursday. Couldn’t help myself.

 

 

A perfect excuse to take a short breather after 10km.

 

As for today, I checked out the yoga show at Canada place. I had the opportunity to visit my friend Susanne (She’s pretty much a celebrity here in Vancouver, in every Semperviva ad out there.) I also picked up two things I’m excited about:

1)  A passport to Prana. It’s a multi studio yoga pass that was $30, and allows one free visit at 30+ studios in Vancouver and surrounding area. (I also picked one up for Brad, nothing says love like side by side downward dogs.) I’ve really wanted to incorporate yoga into my training on a regular basis and this will allow us to check out a few different studios and it was only $30 bucks!!

2) Udo’s oil (3.6.9 blend) which is a certified organic, sustainable and fish free blend of plant-sourced oils. It is apparently great for many different things.

 

 

The perfect 3.6.9 blend?!

 

A few of the reported benefits include:

-increased musclar endurance

-increased cardio endurance … run farther, faster and longer! (If this is true, I will be one happy piraterunner!)

-plus many more!!

Figure we will incorporate it into our smoothies, salad dressings etc. I’ll let you know how it goes. SB

 

A Ruga day!

Today I decided to start a proper training schedule for a 1/2 marathon. As I have mentioned in a previous blog, I am considering running the fall classic here in Vancity in November and I now have a benchmark time to beat! I started back running on Sunday with a 5km run. Felt good to get back out running and even threw in a few hills! Believe me, I’m still not lovin the running …. Let’s just say I’m in major “like.”

 

 

Unlike this nut who runs everyday!!! I already knew she was crazy...but, everyday!?!

 

I was definitely tested by the running Gods today! My ipod died approx. halfway through my run. Which according to my “Nike coach” was to be 5miles long with 4x400m sprints (2-4 minute jogs in between.) I shockingly continued to run (and sprint) even after the unfortunate death. I ran the approx. 5miles and completed all four sprints, which were tough…but made the regular paced running seem so much easier!!!

I then returned home for the “ga” part of my day. 90 min of yoga with the douchiest (is that even a word?) yogi I have ever seen. Those of you who have done the P90x yoga dvd will agree!

 

 

Sadly...I completed a yoga dvd lead by this man. It was X-treme!

 

I’ve decided I need to incorporate yoga into my running schedule more often. It felt good to stretch, and my hips are still thanking me. My eyes and ears…not so much. Mr. Horton is definitely not zen. SB
