Today was my one day at home to get ready for my next trip.
I was worried that after not running for five days straight, it might be tough to get back into the habit, but I got out first thing this morning for 4.3km. It felt great because it was nice and cool out:)
I actually got out for another 4km this evening as well. Thankfully I didn’t know it was raining until I was already out there! I had just finished listening to a Marathon Training Academy podcast and the interviewee was talking about how it’s good to smile when you’re running. It must have worked as I felt great even though I wasn’t particularly faster for most of the run. I did however hit a 5:15 pace at the end:). If only I could do that consistently!
Tavia and Cori came for Tavia’s knitting lesson today and I had her start a Grandma’s favourite dishcloth for her mom. I only had to show her once and she had the yarn over down. I love seeing her tink back when she makes a mistake. I think k it’s going to turn out great!
I finally made some progress on my halter top that I started. I had twisted my stitches last night and didn’t know until I went to do the folded hem, but it turned out to be good as I got to try it on and realized I needed to take about fifty stitches off of it to get it to fit me. Ugh now I have to do math all the way through:(. I am loving what it’s looking like so far though! I have made sure to pack it and hopefully will get lots of time to knit this weekend as we visit.
I listened to a Marathon Training Academy episode, but I also listened to the first full episode of Not Your Mom’s Romance Book Club. It was quite cute and I definitely share some experiences with Ellen. I also found a knitting podcast to try, so hopefully I’ll get to that soon!
I met up with Brenda for tea and made plans for the weekend. I’d better get to sleep as I’m being picked up at 5.40am!
