It was a nice day, except for the blisters!
Today I had my first light day. I responded to emails and assessed the work that had been uploaded and was done by noon (of course I started at 7 so I could get my five hours in).
I decided I really wanted to just be able to relax when I got home from the social tonight so I did my workout before my run for a change. I did another online bootcamp workout and it was making me sweaty for sure! It took me until the tenth round to figure out we were doing a countdown!🙄. The worst part was the blister I now have on my hand from the band:(
I had arranged to meet up with Dennis for our run at 12:30. I was really unsure what to eat for lunch before running, but I’m happy to say that a mandarin orange, strawberries and almonds worked well. Dennis was suffering with his allergies again and I found the humidity quite dreadful, but we managed 7km from the rec centre, around the river and back again. I am actually surprised it was only 7km as I really thought it was going to be more than 10km!
I definitely felt the tired legs from working out first as I didn’t hit a decent pace until my watch clicked to 5km. I guess I can blame the pre-run workout, the humidity and the dumb blister on my foot that just isn’t healing:(
I am obviously running more now as I can really tell the difference between trail and road shoes. I had thought we would be on the road so wore those shoes but we were mainly on trails and I really noticed the lack of stability and grip. Does this mean I am a real runner now 🤣🤪
I met up with the ladies from work for our social distanced Friday social tonight. I fully admit to being an introvert, but even I need some social time each week and I throughly enjoy these two hours. We don’t say anything important but it is nice to catch up with everyone.
I had better go back to telling you what I’m eating as I’m feeling roly poly lately. Today I had:
2 slices (homemade and tiny so they equal one slice) of bread with Pb and cheese
Mandarin orange, 8 strawberries, 10 almonds
corn chips and salsa (one of the girls brought them for me as she brought baked goods for everyone else)
It’s not quite what I want, but maybe I can get it right over the weekend!
I got my plants watered, my laundry done, my bike tires inflated, and my dishes done- I’m a happy camper!
I worked on the Floridian cowl again and got another pattern repeat done so I think I am exactly halfway through the cowl now.
I’m reading a very entertaining book but am not done yet. So far it has excellent banter. I also have continued listening to the Semi Attached Couple while I’m knitting. I had to give up on the podcasts as the hosts’ stupidity was driving me crazy!!!
Well I’m going back to my baking shows!
