A day in my life: Monday February 7, 2011

Thoughts:
My weekend was relaxed. While I’m feeling great again, this weekend R. was sick. And not only him, Bella was too. She had diarrhoe. She woke us up every night from Thursday till Sunday and needed to go out in the middle of the night. Both are doing better today.

I haven’t had stomach problems since Thursday. It almost looks like my stomach knew I saw the doctor and decided to keep a low profile 🙂  But today the problems were back. I hope I get the results on Thursday and that something can be done about it.

Exercise:
I did a double workout today. This morning before work I had an easy run on my schedule: 4.8K (3 miles). The weather was perfect, there was still some wind but not as much as on Saturday and the temperature at 5.30 am was 9C (48 degrees). It almost felt like Spring. I didn’t look at my pace, just ran at a pace that felt comfortable for me.

I was home late from work and R. had to leave right after dinner and that meant no strength workout at the gym before dinner. After dinner at around 7 pm my gym is very crowded and since I don’t like that, I didn’t go to the gym. Instead I dusted off my DVD of the 30 Day Shred and did level 1. It has been a while since I last did it and because of that it all seemed new and it was a short but great workout.

Distance: 4.8 K / 3 miles

  8. Excellent job! Glad to hear you are feeling better, and up and about again. Looking forward to hearing more – you are doing a great job.

  9. I hate it when we’re all sick. Especially, when I have to take Panda out, when I’m sick. I’m glad you’re sort of feeling better. I know we’re STILL trying to get over whatever it is we had. And WTG on working out so hard, I’m sure Bella is thrilled 🙂 Keep it up !!

    I don’t like crowded gyms either…you still managed to move forward and get some exercise in, great job!
    So, what are you wearing these days? I’ve missed your clothing pix. Mostly sweaters and coats, right?

  14. Keeping my fingers crossed for your tests – isn’t that shred a tough workout? Sent you an email with yoga class info…
