A great start to a new season!
I slept in this morning but was up in time to join two friends for a walk around a local lake. It took 2 hours and 15 minutes and is just a series of big rolling hills. You come down a hill, just to go right back up one. I would definitely call it a workout, but it was so great to be out hiking on the first day of Spring! It definitely checked something off my spring break list:). We had taken Sarah’s dogs Kula and Wilson with us and I think Kula did about four times what we did!🤣
Later in the afternoon I forced myself out for a run so that I could continue my run streak:) Paula at Never a Dull Bling has been talking about Squad Runner so I looked it up today and the challenge was to run one hour over Monday and Tuesday. While I had thought to do just my usual half hour run I decided to tack on the extra five minutes to accomplish this challenge, just so I could test whether this was doable for me. I did get my 35 minutes in, though no thanks to Runkeeper which decided to tell me I was doing a 3:09 for my first km. Haha not unless I’ve recently sprouted wings!
Paula very kindly found me a team and I have joined up to Squad Runner. I’m just hoping it will inspire me to do more than my normal. The team I’ve joined seems amazing! And I now have to do a 5km run in the morning🤣.
I guess I was on fire as I also got a quick Lyndsay workout in this evening!
It wasn’t too much, but was at least something to keep me getting back on track:). I also discovered that catching up on WordPress is an awesome distraction during wall sits!!!🤣
I haven’t just exercised today though. I had cranberries and cranberry jelly leftover from Saturday so decided to make muffins. Some of my (and my dad’s) favourite recipes come from the Joanne Fluke book series: Hannah Swenson Mysteries. I definitely recommend the series for anyone who likes cosy mysteries. She has a recipe for blue blueberry muffins that I love where you use blueberries and blueberry pie filling. I decided to try it out with cranberries and cranberry jelly. They turned out awesome, even with being gluten free and dairy free. The only thing I don’t love is my own fault! I ran out of butter and used lard in the crumb topping and I definitely don’t recommend this!
I have also managed to get the front of my sweater finished:) I just hope it all works out though as because I started with less stitches I also finished with less😳
My friend Brenda and I are trying to decide if we should go to the Fibres West festival or just save our money for the Knit Shop Hop next month. Decisions, decisions🤣
I should have really been cleaning my house today, but all I managed to do was take my poor dead houseplants outside and sweep up the living room:(. I really need to get a kick in the butt about this. I guess I’ll have to invite someone over🤣
Well I’m off to finish the Wives and Daughters movie, which so far has been really good!
