Weekends are fun!!!!!

by agoodnow

Let’s see…………..

Stayed in both Friday and Saturday nights which resulted in productivity for the weekend.

I took not one, but two yoga classes.   I still maintain that yoga is more difficult than any other activity I have tried before.  It has also put a spotlight on how terrible my balance is and how weak my legs are.    I fall at least twice per class.  That said, I do enjoy it.  I realize that I need to relax (it has been pointed out to me by more than one source that I tend to be high strung and I take a negative outlook on people, events, situations……….hey, I’m working on it)  and yoga is a good way of doing so.   At least it is a start.

Sidenote – I am very good at diagnosing my own problems.  Fixing them is another issue all together.

I walked around lower Manhattan on Saturday morning (more on that in a later post).  I always find something new and interesting when I wander around.  There is so much history everywhere you turn.  Saturday I discovered Clinton Castle.  It was originally a fort that housed cannons keeping lower Manhattan safe from attack in the late 1700’s.

  I’m thinking about walking around the entire outside of Manhattan next weekend.  Should take about 10 hours or so.

I wrote a little this weekend.  Not as much as I would have liked, but it was good.   Wrote mostly about my experience moving to New York and the sticker shock of looking for apartments.

Wrote another “article” for COEDmagazine.  Hoping it gets posted today.

And finally:

I would like to give a big shout out to my good friend Dr. Julie.   She ran her first marathon in………3:59.  Wow.  An amazing accomplishment. 

A little bit about her training plan.  Julie is what I would call an uber planner.  She had a 36 week training plan in which she ran every single training run.   36 WEEKS!!!!!!!!  I couldn’t keep to any sort of schedule for 36 weeks.  Hell, there are days when I forget to eat, nevermind run.   Some people might call 36 weeks of training a bit outrageous (I know I did), but all I know is that she finished a marathon in under 4 hours.  Less than one percent of the world can claim to have done that.

I, for one, am impressed.

Congrats Julie.  Great job. (and you have now given me a time to beat)
