Today is the day! I’m off to the races in Jasper for the Jasper Half Marathon! That is, after three final exams in a row!


Let’s have a look at this week where I studied my butt off and prepared for my trip. This weekend I got all my exercise through yard work! My yard is probably about half an acre and this weekend I had to pick up all the dog poop that accumulated over the winter. It took two days, 280 dog poop bags and 30 grocery bags!!


Friday- Golf & yoga

Doing work on my swing in PE has really helped! I’m pretty excited to go out with Ryan and show him what I learned.

Saturday- Nothing

Sunday- Yoga & 4 hours of yard work

I went to Pop Up Yoga Lethbridge at CASA again this week and loved it! After yoga, coffee catch ups with my girls, I went to the backyard for four hours!

Monday- Volleyball & TRX

My volleyball skills are really improving, I probably play at a Grade 6 level now! Ha ha ha! We did TRX for one of my PE classes and man did it kick my ass! It showed me how much I’ve been neglecting my strength training and need to get back to it!

Tuesday- Nothing

Wednesday- Ultimate frisbee

I only had one in the gym PE class today but man did I get sweaty running around during ultimate frisbee

Thursday- 52 minute study walk- 2miles

The return of the study walk! It was a little crisp but it felt good to be outside and studying again!


And after those three finals I’ll be heading off to Jasper! I’m pretty disappointed though because Ryan was going to come with me and last night our water heater sprung a leak so he now has to stay here to replace it! I can’t tell you how bummed out I am because I was so looking forward to exploring this new park with him.

Watch my social media accounts for lots of mountain and race day pics!
