Showering…

Our Vancouver trip had less eating but even less walking than New York, which made for a difficult return to our home routines. Tina and I are feeling the pressure of a wedding in ten days and the Edmonton Marathon two months away. Some late May heat gave way to seemingly endless rain, hampering Ultimate and other outdoor things. In other news, I finished my athletic therapy the day after our club badminton concluded for the school year. That should pave the way for more half-marathon training, but I’m not convinced…

MEC Edmonton Road Race Two…

It wasn’t the first race I’ve done after returning from a vacation, but it was Tina’s first. New York had more eating and less walking than our previous international trips, but I squeezed in two nights of badminton (one for Tina) before our 5K. Saturday’s MEC Race was very well attended (there were a number of familiar faces). The weather was nice, and while most of us didn’t set any personal bests, it was a good first race before ramping up our summer running. The caveat is Tina and I will be out of town again next week…

Improving…

Spring is still very cool, and fittingly summer Running Man looks like the winter edition, save for Tina’s debut in 2019. Otherwise, things are looking up. My athletic therapist gave a very good prognosis today. Tina and I drove to Lake Louise last weekend with a bunch of couple friends for a marriage conference. We’ll get Milo over the Easter weekend, then be in New York while Tina finds herself in between jobs. We’ll dog sit Obillia’s Calbi after returning, then embark on our second road trip in 2019 (to visit my aunt in Vancouver)…

Transitioning…

We added more games and accessories to Tina’s Wii and she’s been playing a lot of first-person shooters. I get motion sickness playing (even throwing up once), so I let her enjoy the spoils. The winter edition of Running Man is winding down now that snow is finally melting, and with spring around the corner I’ll be recruiting for summer running soon. Walks between work and my athletic therapist were offset by reduced badminton, just in time for ESSC playoffs. And my third appointment last week was for a sleep analyzer…

Waiting…

Except for an adjustment to my teeth brushing regimen, life has returned to normal for my mouth. I got in some extra-curricular badminton, but otherwise the exercise has died down. Running Man was cancelled once due to no runners, and I’ll be skipping again to go fishing with Phil tomorrow. The long weekend cancelled one badminton night, and I missed a chance to sub for ESSC by minutes. We’re in the process of accessorizing our Wii via the used market, but after a promising start things have stalled on that front too…
