Today is another great day in my books- I don’t know what it is, but life keeps throwing me good days- I’m hoping that I don’t get used to it, every day I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
This morning started off with my run workout which was hard to do, but felt great being done before 8. I had a 15min warm up, then 3×10 minute intervals ran at my half marathon pace (I was probably closer to a 10k pace- I’m a cheater when it comes to pacing) with two minutes rest between and then a 15minute cool down. I was done in 1h9 and then came home and did my exercises for my knees (weak glute meds) and some abs.
Today is a brilliant day because our Marketing prof gave us the day off in lieu of Earth Day tomorrow. I’m sure there was a point to having our day off, but Earth Day is tomorrow! If the point was to get us thinking about it- he certainly did. I’m already counting down the days to change up my training from running to adding more cycling to the mix. My Uni is about an hour ride from my house (at a good clip) and when I get out there, there’s a hill I like to ride a couple times that’s a great but burner.. oh the things I look forward to in life.
Have you got any big plans for Earth Day? I think that this year it’s a good time to start making the changes we have been avoiding for whatever reason- I know it’s easy to talk the talk, and I’m guilty of not following through with my “commitment” to the environment, but I want to be better than I have been in the past. Realistically, I want my kids to be able to see the world I’ve grown up in, and even better if their kids could as well. So what am I going to do? I’m just going to better about not being lazy when it comes to composting, recycling, turning off lights, having a meatless day in my house once a week and riding my bike more. (I think we’re lucky because coming into the summer, all this becomes so much easier- everything is easier in the summer)
Hopefully you all have a wonderful hump day! Don’t forget about Earth Day tomorrow! Have you got any plans through work or with friends? Any goals you have to help the environment?
