Failed plan

Monday, September 16, 2013

So I am in Stockholm to give a seminar, came by train yestradya, will talk for 45 minutes before lunch and then go home at two o clock... had this very nice plan to go swimming this morning, found an indoor pool that opened 6,30 only two subway stations away and a few blocks walking from that station... but yesterday will stop me.

I had googled for a shop who carried thin wool fabric, something I need for my Carmen skirt, since it is a fireshow it should be in wool that does not burn as easy as sythetics.... Went by subwau to a subrud, found that the shop was about ten blocks away from the station and walked there with my backpack (with computer) feet dod not apporve. Found the fabric emoticon ...and walked back and took the subway back and to the place were the hotel was. The hotel wqs also some distance from the subway station so when I got there my feet were really killing me.

Got a very spacious room with a bath tub - so I decided to have a hot bath wich required me stepping out once more to get som foam stuff... it was not far away but by that time I was really in pain.

The hot bath... not so smart, have not bathed for ages and realised that I have become a lot older, getting down in a tub is a risky procedure and the tub was not big enough to allow high water... well, fun anyway, and I survived and got to bed very eraly, having camomille tea.

Now it is 5.30 in the morning, I have been up for an hour and I am very tempted to try that indoor pool - but I have to be able to stand up for 45 minutes with a lot of energy in a couple of hours so I shall not... I will be satisfied that this great plan kept me amused all day yesterday and stopped me from eating. There is a gym at this hotel, I might check it before breakfast but otherwise I will be back home again early enough to go on a bike tour for my daily exercise...

    I think your plan was successful. so you took a slight detour from the pool, that was just a shift to plan B not a failure.

    I think you did the smart thing in listening to your body Meddy. I think all that walking while carrying around your computer is quite a workout (I know a laptop is usually under 5 lbs but still extra weight to carry).

Hope your seminar went well.
