I was up and out early this morning as I knew I had a lot to do at work and I didn’t want to be stuck there all night…again! However, my plans were scuppered on the way in as I hit an immense traffic jam which I was stuck in for ~40mins and there was no escaping it, I just had to out up with it and calmly wait until it moved. I could have stayed in bed another hour! Ah well, I can’t think like that otherwise I will get annoyed! Got everything essential done for the day and left a bit later than I hoped but considering the nightmare start in the a.m. it wasn’t too bad really.
Tonight was Soca Skip from 7:30-8:30 so I planned to cycle to the gym first for a run on the treadmill, cycle back and go on to Soca Skip. It’s been another beautiful day so it was nice to be able to get out on my bike and enjoy a little bit of it. Once at the gym I ended up having to do a 2 part run on the treadmill as a girl from one of my other classes came over and started chatting so I put it on pause and by the time we’d finished it had finished on me and come up with my summary so I had to start over to complete what I had wanted to do. This is one of the many reasons I don’t like chatting at the gym – I just want to get in the zone and get on with it, doesn’t everyone?! Anyways, it also left me tight on time, which I was anyway and that’s before any chatting! I managed to do 3 miles before having to leg it out and get back on my bike with 5 minutes before my Soca Skip class started…eek! I made it and they hadn’t started so it’s all good:-) Soca Skip was a toughie tonight and I can’t help feeling like Fronzie (our instructor) was picking on me a bit – sitting on me while I was trying to do squats, making me do extra lunges etc. etc., it’s all good I guess, I can’t say I wasn’t pushed that’s for sure! I came back and nipped to Sainsbury’s on my bike for a few bits before coming back and having a hot soak before a big dinner…yum!
Thursday tomorrow although today’s felt a bit like Thursday so based on that tomorrow should be Friday really…wishful thinking 🙂
