Wow! What great weather today in NJ! Perfect for outdoor walks!
So this morning I assembled a slow-cooker meal to be ready when I got home from the gym. I originally chastised myself once I realized I probably should have planned it for a day I’m not coming home late from work (I really enjoy walking with Jonny before it gets dark), but then I had a bright idea! I’m starting my cough to 5K program today & even though I know he doesn’t like running, I asked Jonny if he’d like to do the first session with me tonight on the Columbia Trail. To my surprise, he agreed! So excited! I’m going to need to fit more cardio into my routine to be well-conditioned for roller derby.
Speaking of which, I really hope the stuff I ordered for practice gets shipped soon. I was under the impression that one or both of them would get shipped same or next day, but I haven’t received confirmation of shipment on either order. Oh well. If I can’t, I can’t, but I’d really like to have my gear this week. Last night I was watching a documentary on a few roller derby teams & one thing that definitely kept coming up was the constant threat of injury so I’m going to try to cater my strength workouts specifically on injury-preventing stabilizer muscles. At this point, I have no idea what I would do if I couldn’t work out. It’s become a constant for me most days & something I would really miss in my life. Well, that’s all she wrote for today. A short one for me. LOL.
