I tried to make it feel like it lasted a long time, but I suppose it was inevitable that my holiday come to an end.

Exercise:

I ended up just walking with Brenda this morning as it was just the two of us. I was okay with this because I made my goal yesterday and ended March with 300.7km ran. In March I did:

2km-1 run

3km- 8 runs

4km- 11 runs

5km- 4 runs

6km- 3 runs

7km- 1 run

I would like to shift the majority of my runs in April to 4 and 5km runs rather than 3 and 4km like they were in March, but we shall see. Most of the time I am just happy to get out!

I did get 100 squats done this evening and a short run to the park and back. I felt like I was bouncing along and when I went to turn off my app, it said I was doing a 5:46/km😀

Knitting:

After having coffee with Brenda, I went home and got a bit more done on the April Tank. I am much happier with the colour choice this time, but am a little worried that the neck opening will end up being too small. I probably should have added on when I had the chance, but oh well.

Products:

I had a new product to try – Blueberry Muffins from The President’s Choice line. I have to admit I wouldn’t recommend these. While they look good they were very dry and so light! It was like eating air:( It might just be my personal preference but when I bite into a muffin, I want dense, moist yumminess!

Reading:

I yet again spent a lot of today reading. I finished Getting Hot with the Scot by Melonie Johnson last night.

I just couldn’t put down this story! The story of Cassie and Logan. Cassie is on her dream holiday with friends when she fulfills her mission to have a fling, however, one night was just not enough with the Scot.

I liked how the characters were multi-faceted and it was focused on them. There wasn’t a ton of information on the family or friends to distract from the main storyline. I also liked how both characters were flawed.

I was also satisfied when the story continued after Cassie got back home. I would have been sorely disappointed to have it end in London! It’s neat seeing how regular life is for Cassie and Logan.

Finally the teaser about Bonnie and Theo is making me chomp at the bit for the next book!!

I also managed to finish listening to Great Expectations by Charles Dickens on LibriVox. I am happy I listened to it though it is definitely not my favourite Dickens book! I just found it dragged a lot through the middle and then finished up in a rush.

I have spent the day alternating between knitting the April Tank (I’ve joined in the round and have a lot of stockinette to go now) and reading Smitten With the Brit. It has been wonderful.

Prep:

Of course I have also had to do my hand washing, get outfits ready for the weekend prep my food. I managed to mix cherry basil bruschetta mix with my yogurt and granola instead of berries, so we’ll see how this week goes🙄🤪

I’m going back to my book now!

Have fun!

  1. I know you wanted to work on reducing how many 2 km runs you had and you definitely did that in March! Way to get out there for all of those runs AJ!

    1. Thanks Maureen! Runkeeper just told me I did the most runs ever in a month- 29! I’m happy that I’m back on track for my yearly goal:)

  2. A great vacation week for you! I can’t wait to hear about your kiddos return, though! We are in the final week before recital here, coming off a wasted weekend with a stomach virus, so I need to get moving. Program draft today and paper goods and punch tomorrow. I had planned to have that all finished by today!

  3. haha I have totally done something similar with my yogurt mix-ins! Hope it doesn’t taste too bad- maybe you’ll end up having a new favorite snack?! LOL. Have a good week, AJ!

  4. sounds like a good last day to your break. I don’t think it is fair to have to go back to work on April Fool’s Day…. that is not a fun joke!

    A dry, yet airy muffin….now that is a strange combination. Sorry you were disappointed, but hey you tested it out at least!?!

    1. Exactly! It feels like a cruel joke today!
      I am always happy to try new products so I know whether I am missing something or not LOL
