Week of February 12, 2012:
Monday: DIY Recovery Yoga
Tuesday: Bike commute and short run
Wednesday: Off (off baking cookies, that is)
On Tuesday, I doubled up for a bike commute and run. My legs felt rather brick-like during the run, more so than other times when I’ve done the bike/run combination. A brick, for those of you who aren’t triathletes, is a run immediately following a bike ride, and it derives its name from the way your legs feel when you try to hop off your bike and move forward on two feet. It is, I think, an apt name.
But it was a good run. I’m having a restless week over here, stuck in that feeling of not being able to get anything done or generate some new exciting data. I always have a hard time when I feel like things aren’t moving forward fast enough for my taste, so this week, to fake a sense of accomplishment, I’m tackling my numerous piles of stuff at home. Matt is visiting next weekend, and I always use his visits as an excuse to clean and organize a little more thoroughly. (Silly man, he thinks I live like that all the time. Ha!) So far, I’ve only put away some CDs and cleaned the bathroom a bit, but I have plans, people, I have plans. My coffee table will soon be nothing but glassy surface and some tastefully arranged decorations. No more piles of mail and The Chronicle! I feel better already, just dreaming about the reappearance of more clean surfaces in my apartment.
One more thing: Sure Happy It’s Thursday! Make it a good one.
