The best part of this weekend so far is knowing I have tomorrow off too:)

Exercise:

Yesterday morning I did a 9.5km bike ride out on the dykes. It was calling for rain, but thankfully it didn’t get really heavy until I got back into the car.

This morning I didn’t get as lucky. I met Dennis at another part of the dyke and it rained heavily the whole time we were out there. It was definitely trial by fire for my new hydration pack, but I’m not chafed at all🎊🎉.

Dennis commented 3/4 of the way through our run that it sounded like I was running flat footed. I told him I have no idea how I land when I’m running, but I tried to pay attention from that point on. I seemed to get faster but that might have been the “smelling the barn” syndrome and not have anything to do with my trying to land midfoot and push off.

I was actually so wet by the end that I changed my entire outfit behind the car door🤣

This evening I did another BeFitDavis workout. I was supposed to do five rounds of eight reps each, but I changed it to a minute of jogging between forty reps of each move. I was only using ten pound weights so thought higher reps might be better. I did: weighted sit ups, deadlifts, plié squats, squat thruster, and dumbbell swings. I really liked this workout:)

Reading:

I finished a book last night called, Rules of Engagement by JT Geissinger. It was a great read. The grumpy hero who is actually a softie. The girl who can’t see what’s right in front of her and the meddling aunt and agent. Nothing new, but good banter and some laugh out loud moments. If you’re looking for something light I would recommend this one.

Knitting:

I have spent a lot of the past two days knitting as my secretary has commissioned some baby booties as she is becoming an auntie. Yesterday I did the ice skates as her brother plays hockey.

I think they might be the cutest thing I’ve ever knitted! The pattern is by Paisley and is simply called ice skates. I had to buy the pattern on Ravelry, but now that I know how she does these, I think I could do her roller skates without buying the pattern. The yarn is just worsted weight scraps from my stash.

I thought they’d be super hard for me as it’s been a long time since I’ve crocheted, but it came back pretty quickly and easily. It also helps that these are so small that they go quickly.

Today I tackled cleats as the mommy to be is a rugby player. You’ll have to wait until I finish the second one tomorrow to see them though.

Eating:

I have been really good the past two days for my eating and I’m really hoping I will be rewarded soon!🤣

Well, I’m going to go start a new book:)

Have fun!
