|I asked Damian to take a couple |
pictures, and this was the best one.
I took Maddox for a walk, and ended up with another little girl, who was 2. She was really cute, but after 2 or 3 hours she
started getting tired and didn't want to listen to me anymore. I handed her back to her mom and dad. It was a long day, and I got pretty bored. I felt like it was a waste of my last day of vacation. I got cheated out of one more day of floating in the lake. Oh well. I couldn't say I wasn't going to go. =/
I got back last week with the intention of joining the YMCA. I was going to swim and do a couple cycle classes. Well, I was looking at they pool schedule and noticed that it said the pool will be closed from 8/20-8/29 for maintenance. There goes those plans. =/ So I started looking at other options.
My sister goes to LA Fitness, so I asked her about it, and she said she could get me a 2 week pass to go "try it out." So I decided to do that. There's one in Everett where I work, and I can go right after work. They have cycle classes Monday and Wednesdays at 5:30, which is a little late, but doable.
I decided to go for a run last Tuesday to test my ankle, which did nicely and then I went to the YMCA on Wednesday as a drop in to swim ($10 for a drop in, seems steep). Then I started my 2 weeks at LA Fitness on Friday and swam for 30 min. I thought swimming back and forth at the lake was hard, it's much harder in a pool. I think that's because the laps are longer. I have to stop and rest every half lap. It's hard!
I ran again yesterday, and again, my ankle seems to be doing okay. It still is sore, tomorrow it'll be the most sore, but it's so much better than it was.
If you know me, which no one that reads this really does, you know that I love shoes, specifically heels. So not only does my ankle affect my running, but also my shoe choices. I really, really miss my shoes.
|I read a lot. I didn't bring enough books, I ran |
out at the end of the week.
|Damian lost his shoe in the lake pulling the |
boat up to the dock, and instead of floating
in, like we had been all week, it started floating
out, so he had to grab a raft and row himself to
get his shoe. It was hilarious.
|Waiting for the wedding, that is Damian's cousin, that we've|
only met one other time.
|The boys drinking . . . and waiting.|
|The kids waiting.|
