I’ve been working away all day, but nothing got completed:(
I joined up with my old running buddies (I’m the only one still running- they all just walk) for a run out along the dykes. It’s the same run I did on Friday, but was gray and empty today. I managed just over 7km in my 47 minute run. This run I did with no walking breaks which is something I want to keep doing regularly so I don’t become reliant on walk breaks.
The tea after the run was the best part as it rained on me for the whole run and I had no hat:(
I got the schedule of missions for the week of Squad Runner and I have to admit I’m a little hesitant as it seems like a lot of running!! We’ll see how it goes, but I really don’t want to hurt myself!
I managed to sneak in a ladder workout this evening. I really don’t want to give up my workouts as I really think they make me a better runner and improve my fitness and physique. I did: 1 push-up, 2 v-ups, 3 dips, 4 bridges, 5 burpees, 6 toe reaches, 7 plank up-downs, 8 mountain climbers, 9 sit ups, 10 lunges, 11 squats, 12 jumping jacks. The tough thing about this workout is the accumulation of the exercises as you move up the ladder. I was a little sweaty by the end😂
I did my grocery shopping on the way home and still managed to forget to buy salsa and I didn’t buy tomatoes so I can’t even make my own😖
I had to go buy new knitting needles to start my parent’s afghan. It’s amazing I didn’t have the right size as I have mine, my mom’s, my grandma’s, and my great aunt and uncle’s knitting needles. Knitting needles are expensive, but I never balk at buying the as I know I’ll have them for life. I ended up getting the 9mm circular I needed and another 3.75mm circular as my temperature scarf is taking that one up for the year.
I got the afghan casted on and the first four rows of border done. Tomorrow I can start the fun stuff!
I got caught up on my temperature scarf. I’m tempted to use the calendar I found online and only do it on the last day of the month. We’ll see what happens with this next month.
I also hauled out my rug again and have been working away at it. Unfortunately, I haven’t finished the square yet:( My mom figured out that if I did one square a week or did 30 minutes a day during the school year and then 90 minutes in the summer, I could be done by the end of August. It would be lovely to have the project finished as it’s been hanging over my head for years. I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of projects I have going and how they are taking over my living room:(. I’m really just a one project at s time person!!
As I was working away on my rug I listened to the end of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was a really great story and I can see why it is a classic. It’s an excellent story that holds your interest for every chapter. I think it would be an awesome read aloud for boys who are aged 8- 10:). I listened on LibriVox to version 2 and the voices were excellent.
I’ve also been working on redoing my Stylebook wardrobe app. I decided to stick with the same app and just make sure I have the backup turned on this time! I didn’t want to learn anything new, I’ve already paid for this one and it seems simple and to suit my needs. I used Brenda’s WiFi last night and dropped all the photos to myself so at least I don’t have to go through that step this time. I was hoping to be done today, but it looks like it will be tomorrow.
I’m off to do a bit more on my rug as I’d really like to “accomplish” something today!
