Today, I am going to start with a not-so original-topic: the Ottawa race Weekend. Last Saturday, I completed my second 5k race along with three friends and my sore neck (Google translate tells my I can uns torticoli in English, can I?). The neck pain was … well when I ran, whenver I would put my left foot down, it felt like a lightning in my neck. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the race and the energy and I can’t wait to do it again, hopefully faster since I ran my 5k in 50 minutes.
My next goal is to be able to run an entire 5k without having to walk. In order to do so, I am planing on running 3 times a week. My next race is on June 17th in Buchighnam (Gatineau) and I will also participate to a 5k in Gatineau on July 7th.
Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you the fact that I am sleeping much better now thanks to a new mask I am trying in order to actually use the CPAP that I have to control my sleep apnea. that thing is’nt sexy but so far, it’s working and I have much more energy. Enough energy actually that I have been getting up early in the morning in order to bike to work or go for a swim a few times in the past two weeks. Needless to say that exercise also generates energy so I feel a lot better.
I had a question for you: in the summer, do you prefer to run inide or outside? I have a feeling the heat will be an issue and getting up at 6 AM might be ont too… I don’t know if I should get a gym membership or not.
