It was the first official work day off for Spring Break today.
I set off to do 6km for my Squad Runner mission this morning while it was still -2. I don’t know if my body or my brain was the problem, but I actually had to pause my watch and take a couple of breaks. It was definitely not my best run:(. It did however, get done!
Later I went for a lovely walk in the sunshine. It was just too pretty to stay in!
Finally this evening, I did a workout. A minute of jogging between 25 reps of each of these:
Bent over row
1 minute plank (just for my mom)
I am still one ahead in running than workouts, but I’m sure a day will come when I won’t run. Right now, I’m just trying to make up some mileage!
We didn’t know what all the announcements were going to bring and my friends were starting to worry about me, so I ran some errands. I got my prescription renewed, groceries picked up (though I realized today how little packaged food I can actually eat), a new CO2 canister picked up, and library books returned and two new ones borrowed. It was pretty quiet everywhere so at least they went quickly. These were all the things I was saving for when my mom was in town to keep me company. I didn’t try to do Costco however!
I have spent most of the day knitting again. I have some finished objects to show off though I apologize for the bad lighting.
My new sweater. It is an Anne Budd “recipe” from her book Top Down Sweaters. The pattern was very easy to follow and I enjoyed being able to make it my own. The yarn is unmarked handspun that was in my stash. I don’t even remember when I got it or where it came from.
My favourite baby hat to make! It is a simple rolled brim hat and it turned out cute in the sock yarn, though I do wish it was a little taller. It will need to be for a small baby!
A kids hate with a very cute snowflake pattern that is tough to see in this nighttime picture. I loved this pattern, Schneeflocke Hat by Liz Deane, and will definitely make it again! I used up two small balls of bulky weight yarn so it was a success.
Well I have an early morning run tomorrow with Dennis, since they hasn’t been outlawed yet, and I’m thinking I’d better call my cell provider as I imagine I’ll be over my limit very quickly as I don’t have WiFi at home.😳. That will be the extent of my excitement for tomorrow.
