I had several things to get done today, but they were all improved by having my mom along for company:)
My running buddy Sarah got to choose the route today and so we did Colony Farms. It’s a flat dyke area that is out in the open so we figured it would have gotten sunshine and be free of ice. It was pretty good and we got a nice half hour run in. Sarah didn’t want to do herself in on her first run after being incredibly sick for the past two weeks. I was just happy to get some more mileage done. I am finally working on March mileage. My mom worked out that I have to run at least 3.68km a day to make my goal of 1200km this year. I hope I can do at least that much. I’m actually thinking that perhaps I should try another half marathon while I’m on holidays, though I haven’t been doing high mileage so we’ll have to see.
I got a weights workout done this evening called Assymmetrical weights. It had three rounds of three different circuits.
A) reverse lunge with single arm press, rows, squat with bicep curl
B) chest press, tricep kickback, plank with alternating leg raise
C) skipping, lateral raise to front raise, sit up.
It was at least something:)
I quickly showered and set off to visit my brother and parents. It was a great way to get rid of the lemon bars and I got hugs from my nephew and fur nephew:)
The were equally enjoyed.
My mom and I continued on to pick up student prizes from the dollar store, cedar rings from Canadian tire to take on the moth problem, cheese and yogurt and knitting needles. A lot of stops, but company made the traffic and jobs bearable:)
My mom and I sprayed my hall closet and had tea to give the product time to work. We then tackled sorting out everything that had come out of the closet. I am pleased to say I got rid of two garbage bags of stuff and my closet looks way better!!!
This morning I was knitting along on my Midnight Rose sweater when I realized it was going to be huge on me:(. I frogged all that hard work. I’ve been finding it very difficult to find patterns that fit me lately:(
This evening I searched Ravelry to no avail, but did finally find a pattern in my Nan books. My mom and I had saved my grandma’s knitting patterns and organized them into binders. I love it when I find patterns there! This is a colour work kids sweater so hopefully it will turn out perfect!
As I knit the ribbing, I have forced myself to listen to Great Expectations on LibriVox. At this point, I just want this book to be over!!!
Well it’s not happening tonight as I’m heading to bed.
