Today was rather low-key.
When I’m on a school break/vacation, my criteria for a productive day only needs to include at least 2 of the following:
- a workout
- leaving the house (getting the mail does not count)
- cleaning my bathroom
- using the oven
With these rules, today was productive!
I left the house not once, but twice: to Target and to Chipotle.
My ideal running plan would include one speedwork session (like track repeats) and one actual tempo run (like a nonstop fast few miles) per week.
Realistically, I’m not going to do either of those without a running group or running friends for motivation, so sneaking in fast running is the way to go.
I spent the rest of the day reading Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, per recommendation of Alyssa, one of my college roommates/best friends. Alyssa and I have pretty similar tastes (in terms of books, lifestyle, and career interests; not in terms of our feelings toward strenuous exercise or cute shoes), so I added this book to my mile-long book list as soon as she told me it was her favorite book.
I finally bought it a few weeks ago and started it a few days ago; I got completely sucked in and spent the better part of the past few days reading.
One line synopsis: It’s a Christian fiction about a once prostitute who learns how to love and how to be loved. Great read!
