This may be the scene outside, but even some rain can’t ruin my mood.
Since getting laid off, I didn’t sleep very well. I would fall asleep okay, but I couldn’t sleep past 6:30 or so. When you don’t have anything to wake up for, that’s kind of frustrating.
With that huge weight lifted, I slept just fine this morning. (Or maybe it was the champagne. Whatever.) I woke up at 6:30 again, but promptly rolled over and slept until 8:30 (wild, I know) and woke up with a big smile on my face, rather than my heart pounding.
My schedule today was fairly open, and I loved it. No need to follow up for interviews, no need to hustle for freelance work. No marathon to train for.
I decided a 30/60/90 class would be part of my plan. I could have walked there, but I walked to the subway just after 12 for a 12:30 class. It was raining, and I didn’t have it in me to power-walk some 20-plus blocks. Well, I stood there until 12:20 and the train never came. I didn’t want to be the jerk walking in late, so I threw in the towel and walked home. Not even a subway mishap could get me down today.
I looked again at the gym schedule and tried an hour later for another class–Barre Burn with Janine Boland. It’s funny how the same class with a different instructor can be so different. Janine is definitely a good instructor, but James is just so goddamn funny that I felt like my workout was missing something without the belly laughs I get in his class.
But I’m pretty sure there’s some serious DOMS in my future after this class. Because, apparently I have muscles other than leg muscles. And I used them today. Ow. It’s a good thing, though. I am fine with the number on the scale, but I’m definitely trying to tone up post-marathon and work on my core and hip flexors so that I can run strong next year. I have some big goals.
Also, I sort of love the month of November. What are you loving about November?
