The day didn’t go as planned which means there was a lot less cleaning than there should have been🤣
As I laid in bed this morning I was having a difficult time summoning up any enthusiasm for a run. I finally told myself to go get gas and do the run I used to do with a colleague. I knew it would be short, but it was at least a run.
I ended up just doing 3.45km which was a nice circle route. I felt strong, and was especially grateful for the cloud cover this morning! I know I should do more, but it was at least something.
On the way home, I was driving by the rec centre where I park to run the dyke and figured I should go for a bike ride since I was there and my bike was in the back of my car. I had thought I had escaped being sore from my bike ride on Wednesday night, until I got back on it today!!! I ended up doing about a 45 minute bike ride. It was absolutely lovely on the dyke- quiet, sunny but not sweltering and calm. I ended up feeling a little more confident though I do admit to walking my bike across the street and through the narrow bridge when a girl and her dog stopped in the middle.
This afternoon I got a quick workout in. I had to do plank shoulder touches and plank leg lifts. I was supposed to do the rest in plank too, but ended up doing them normally so they’d be well done. I did bicep curls, tricep kickbacks and bent arm shoulder raise. I managed two sets of each which is at least something.
One thing today has been good for is reminding me how far I’ve come. Fifteen years ago there is no way I would have gone for a bike ride after running, but today I thought nothing of it😀. I may not be where I want to be right now, but at least I am making slow progress!
I also got out for half of my usual walk tonight. I was coming along and suddenly the trail was closed. I peeked and didn’t see anything wrong with the bridge so I’m curious what was up.
I’m currently reading the second book that I need to review for NetGalley before July 10th. I am enjoying it, but about three chapters in I made some predictions and they are all coming true. I’m hoping for some twists and turns at some point!
I have begun another rug square today in the hopes of getting caught up!
I have finished the neck ribbing for my new sweater so am happy with my progress:)
I was supposed to spend today cleaning my house as I have yet to do that, but it definitely isn’t one of my favorite chores. Thankfully I have you all and didn’t want to have to admit to doing nothing so I got two loads of laundry done and my bedroom cleaned completely. It will be lovely to get into bed tonight!
I also got to the dollar store for a card, the bank to cash my reimbursement cheques from school, to the grocery store for gingerale and to the liquor store. Unfortunately they didn’t have the Church and State wine I was looking for for my friend:( I love that wine because of its names (I’ve never drank it, but my mom assured me its good). I think it’s like OPI nail polish and they are very smart!
What I love best about all of these errands is that I could do them on foot and didn’t have to take my vehicle out!
Well, I think it’s time for another Hallmark movie.
