That’s what I’ve been up to. I feel like a lazy bum most of the time but I’m getting lots of other things done: laundry, cleaning, reading – which is kinda nice.
I sure do miss running lots of kilometers. I even updated my log book and I’m only at 19 km this month and am sure I won’t increase that number by too much. Good news, back to Physio tomorrow!!!
Saturday, I managed to hit up the gym and it was great. Walked for 10 minutes, ran for 10 minutes and then a cool down. I know, I know, that wasn’t necessarily a kilometer ran but my head just wouldn’t function to calculate kilometers to miles. I knew one kilometer is around .60 of a mile but I just couldn’t figure it out. So I just gave up and ran for 10 minutes straight…pain free and at a snails pace 😉 FYI – 1 km = .62 of a mile <– That’s what I couldn’t figure out on a Saturday afternoon *shakes head*.
I also did some yoga, stretching and planks in their studio, followed by some upper body weights. Overall, it was just nice to be moving again and I loved how it wasn’t busy at this location. It probably helped that it was 3:30 in the afternoon – apparently not many women go to women-only gyms Saturday afternoons!
One other thing I did on Saturday was quickly hit up Target and some second-hand shopping. Don’t mind my face, I was just a little excited to find this MEC (similar to REI) fleece jacket in perfect condition. It’s kinda old school but I love it! When you find a gem like this you just can’t leave it behind! Sunday was spent with my brother and SIL and then we drove home.
Monday was supposed to be my “run” day but I decided to go to Hatha Flow Yoga class during my lunch break. Oh man, I felt like a beginner in this class. (PS – Not saying a beginners is a bad thing…I just felt out of place). At one point my left arm was shaking some much from holding a pose that I though the instructor was going to come over and say “Umm, you might want to pack in it”. I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing until the end. I was a pile of sweat and it wasn’t from the heater in the room. I did feel amazing once I got back to my office though!
Can you calculate km to miles or miles to km faster in your head?
Ever feel like a beginner in a class?
