my love affair with running

September 7, 2010 at 10:47 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

Hey all! Sorry for no post yesterday, I wasn’t feeling good later in the day because of some stuff that happened with a friend at another uni. No worries , I’m here now. Not for long though, I had my first day of school today and we already have some studying to do! I don’t think I have mentioned it before but I am attending a two year full time college program to become a registered massage therapist :) It is a pretty intense program, which worries me but, I’m excited for the challenge. Bring it on! I’ll start with some food

Fitness time!

Yesterday I did 10minutes of strength training consisting of moves with 5 pound weights and some ab work. Have I ever mentioned I hate  strength training? I then did a 30 minutes yoga video :) It was glorious! I hadn’t done yoga in about a week and a half and I was pretty tight! Felt so good :)

Today I realized I am having a love affair with running :) I went for a wonderful 40minutes run all around the city after school today. It went by so fast, I wasn’t even tired! I kept running the block near the stable in the city, just to smell the horses! I miss mine so much :(

Yesterday I also walked ATLEAST 10k, I first went and took photos in the public garden ( photos below ) I walked around there for about an hour. Then I went and met my friends at their uni, which was quite the trek! I went swimming twice yesterday aswell, and once today. Plus walking up eight flights of stairs twice today, I decided to skip the elevators ;)

Photography

Here are some of my favorite shots I took yesterday – I love when my camera actually cooperates and takes good photos! :)
