This morning I crawled out from under my fluffy winter duvet (I just pulled it out...so fluffy....) and came in to do my legwork. I tried the 1 leg lunges again...whew! Because I just thought "boring!" when I looked at the bike today I hopped on the treadmill, turned on the iPod to some Prodigy, ramped the incline up and walked as fast as I could (about 7.4 kph) for 35 minutes. It felt great...it was tough to not break into a run because it is just what feels right to me, but I enjoyed it SO much. The movement. The flow. Something about moving my arms naturally along with everything else makes it so very zen for me. Add to that one of my favourite cooking shows on the gym TV for me to peek at and learn how to make wine glazed plums and custard (hello Christmas dessert!) and it's been a great morning so far.
Today is my last official day of classes and so from this point on there are only 2 assignments left, my MSc meeting/speech which was (grrr) rescheduled from Monday and an exam. My Dad is coming to visit in there somewhere too for a few days so it'll still be busy, but a different kid of busy. More time to breathe. Time to cook a bit...feel more like a human and less like a robot.
I'm looking forward to it.
I've just snarfed my yogurt and granola and banana and am going to take another whackload of coffee with me and get going with my day. For those of you who asked, a whackload is a few whiffins less than a tonne, give or take a few schlorps :)
Have a great day everybody!
