It was a busy day, but busy with fun stuff!

Exercise:

I knew I had trail clinic tonight so I started the day with just a walk. It was a nice way to get out and enjoy the clouds.

This evening we did a run to jug island. This is one of my favourite hikes, but I don’t think of it as a great run because you just end up having to hike a lot of it. There’s a lot of up and down hill that is super technical. We definitely weren’t going fast! In fact we were going so slow that Squad Runner didn’t even give me any points. Part of it is that the leader keeps stopping. It drives me crazy! I should have dug my phone out to pause it, I guess.

Shopping:

This morning I met up with the teacher who is next door to me at school and we went to Chapters to buy the Bookclub books for next year. It is amazing how quickly we can have a huge stack of books! We look for a variety of genres, nothing over 300 pages or $10 and make sure that the books are available at both of our local libraries. It was so much fun!

Reading:

I finished another book off my kindle app, called Getting Wrapped Up by Erin Nicholas. It is part of the series I have been reading, but I have to admit that this one is my least favourite. It had some weird parts and was definitely steamier than sweet.

Eating:

Yogurt and strawberries for breakfast

Avocado and lobster salad for lunch

Chicken and banana chips for snack

Fries for dinner

Knitting:

Between a late lunch with my friend and my next social engagement I managed to finish the front of my cardigan and start the first sleeve. I really need to look up how to do sleeves two at a time as I think it would be really nice to be done both at once!

I also had a lovely nap at this time:)

Socializing:

My friend Michelle is off to Amsterdam for the summer so I met up with her and another friend for Happy Hour. I was just drinking water as I knew I had a run, but was feeling uncomfortable when the waitress kept asking if we wanted anything. I ordered fries and knew it was a mistake!

My friend Katie did give me the good idea of dragging my mom to Leavenworth. I have been trying to figure out where to go for a short holiday and I have read about Leavenworth and had it been the setting in a book I’ve read and a movie I’ve seen. I’ll have to do some research.

Well I’m off to bed!

Have fun!

    1. I’m glad too! We don’t usually go this long without visiting, but end of the year changes everything. You need to blog while you’re there so I can live vicariously through you!

  1. Sounds like a pretty good day for you. I know a lot of trail runners will say they don’t run the uphill portions since it uses too much energy and then they crash in the later part of the run.

      1. You’ll eventually be happy to slow down. I ran at 90 for 30 years and stopped cold turkey. I still needed to be doing something, but it quickly became more reasonable once I got over the shock. People say I’m really busy, but it’s not even close to life before.

      2. You do seem to get lots done! I am happy for the quiet days so I don’t think I’ll have any trouble slowing down when the time comes!

  2. sounds like a good day. I find when I do group things I either like to be at the back or towards the back of the middle. the front of the group may go a bit faster, but they end up with longer wait times for the leader waits for everyone to catch up and give the next set of directions/suggestions.
