Could it be? Could things really be getting back to normal? Yes. YES! I have nothing depressing, dismal or difficult to share. In fact, I sort of have nothing to share. I like it!
Thursday’s gym date was good, I did Workout A and had to drop some of the weights back a bit but I did better than I thought I would. I was definitely sore that afternoon and Ray reminded me not to push myself so hard that I extend my recovery. I am that stupid sometimes, but not this time, I worked smart. Friday I felt pretty good, I had the ow’s in the morning when I woke up but it was more gym-pain than car accident pain and that is just fine by me! I called it done for gym until Tuesday though to give myself a decent amount of recovery time. So tomorrow morning is my next gym date.
Friday after work we walked 3.5 kilometers to a favourite pub and had dinner and a couple of drinks and then walked home. It was so warm and so nice to just be outside. And, I figure if you’re walking 7 kilometers to and from the pub then the beer you drank AT the pub doesn’t count. Right?
Saturday morning I got us up at 6:30am to go for a walk before we had to get ready for the rest of our day. We walked about 5km at a decent pace in the warm morning sunshine. Saturday afternoon I went and bought my flowers for the garden and the garden shelf while Ray worked on the motorhome. In between planting flowers and pulling up weeds I drank some gorgeous white wine (Burrowing Owl Chardonnay) and rested in the sunshine.
Sunday morning we were up at 6:30am again but this time to go on a charity motorcycle ride. I’m still not able to ride my motorcycle so I was Ray’s passenger for the day. It was an alright ride and the weather was alright. Apparantly the food sucked (I didn’t pay to get in to the “lunch” since I knew there would be no options there for me (we’ve been to this ride before)). It really is my least favourite ride of the year but because it’s for Prostate cancer and all the proceeds stay in our province for care and research, it’s one we just don’t miss. We were home by 1pm and chose to sit out in the sunshine for a couple of hours and take it easy.
All in all we had a really good weekend, spent lots of time relaxing and soaking in sunshine, eating some ice cream, drinking some wine and settling back into our boring life routine….which I happen to love.
That’s about it. Gym tomorrow, Wednesday and Friday and hopefully everything just keeps ticking right along!
