The high of my week was exploring some Ukee logging roads with Shane on our CX bikes and enjoying a little picnic on a beautiful and deserted beach at the turn around point. While technically this was last weekend, I figure since it still falls within the past 7 days, it can still be the high of my week, right?
The low of my week was feeling kind of sick. Not sick enough to hold me back from doing anything, but just off. I've had a bit of an upset stomach since Tuesday night. Wednesday was the worst, but I've been gradually feeling better and better since then, so there’s that.
A blog post I loved was Out There: Life’s $1,000Question by Susan Lacke. Not so much a blog post as an article, but still. Also, this. Again, not so much a blog post, but it made me smile (a smug smile, haha).
For my workouts, I completed...
Tuesday: bike trainer + core at the Loft, followed by an aerobic 35' run after work. I definitely dig starting my day with a pretty killer trainer class and some equally killer core work. The run post work was a nice shake out.
Wednesday: yoga in the am, trainer class with Kelly's group in the pm. All good.
Thursday: 15km easy-aerobic run along the waterfront after work. I've been fighting tight calves all week, so it took a bit to get warmed up and comfortable, but the scenery along Dallas Road really can't be beat.
Friday: my triumphant return to the pool. My legs needed a break and a nice aerobic based swim workout was the perfect thing. Nice and short, about 2200m, but it was enough.
The best money I spent was $10 on a ridiculously massive, candy coated chocolate/caramel apple. I haven't actually eaten it yet, but I thought it would be a nice treat for Shane and I to share at some point this weekend.
My plans this weekend include eating the above mentioned giant caramel apple. Also, more yard work – the broom bush will fall! Also also, hopefully a large bonfire if Shane can finally get the massive (wet) slash pile to burn. Plus, a Saturday night get together with some friends that we haven't seen in far too long. Probably some running, maybe some biking and perhaps a little Netflixing.
Now, photos. Happy Days. Day 30 to 38.

I don't know if it was just my mood that day, but it cracked me up.
