Run outside – 9.62km/51min
I went out for my usual distance today, except I ran in the opposite direction than usual (normally it’s a big loop that I do). I’d highly suggest if you run loops to switch it up like this every once in a while. I have no idea if there is any benefit, but it’s a small step to get out of a “routine” without trying too hard…hills at the beginning rather than the end etc. etc.
Yesterday, I pulled on my volunteer gloves and helped out for the TELUS Day of Giving. We were at the Canadian National Institute of the Blind in the morning helping to clean and organize their living spaces.
In the afternoon we ventured over to what is apparently an EXTREMELY popular park in the city to help sell raffle tickets and silent auction items which was raising money for Horizons Youth Shelter.
It was a gorgeous day, so nice to spend the afternoon outside. From there it was rooftop BBQ time with a few friends! Needless to say I was exhausted by the time my bed was literally calling my name.
Today was spa day 🙂 I’d never been to the spa, but had a gift card that needed to get used, so today was as good a day as any! It’s been sitting on my counter for nearly 2 years. Who does that? Who waits 2 years to use a gift card? Apparently I do. Lame. But after 3 1/2 hours I was FULLY relaxed and rejuvenated. Well worth that studidly long wait 😉
Today was topped off with that nice long run. All and all a successful weekend.
As a total aside, can we just stop and take a look at this REEEDICULOUSLY over the top, but amazing water trampoline. Is that even what its called? Who knows.
