Happy Friday! I slept in today — around 7 am. Plans for the day include CrossFit at noon (lots of dead-lifts in the wod today!) and writing a book review. The house is a mild chaos at the moment, so I’m hoping to get some pre-weekend cleaning and laundry in. Then this afternoon, I have a date with the scanner as I continue to scan and recycle all my class notes to downsize before the move. The boxes of notes just continue to stare at me. So much paper!
I don’t have much planned for the weekend (what else is new?), but I would really like to enjoy the weather and go out for a walk, even if for only a few minutes. It is strange that I can have no problem doing a dead-lift, front squat, or thruster, but walking is uncomfortable and painful. I miss being outside though. I miss listening to podcasts or music while moving. I love CrossFit, but I miss that alone time that I have with running. I’m going to go for twenty minutes, so fingers crossed.
Here are this week’s favorite things:
I’ve never heard of Sara Vaughn before. I loved this article on running, pregnancy, and post-natal comebacks. Now to go scroll through her instagram!
I found this pretty apt while we are currently on our own apartment hunt, although no apartments we’ve considered offer dogs you can rent yet.
Yes! Much agreed. #teamarugula all the way. Also — the author does not mention that it actually lasts all week in the fridge instead of becoming disgusting, soggy, and brown like spinach. I eat an arugla salad almost every single day.
Number five can be the hardest one for me: ways to be a better listener.
The wonderful Caitlin Flanagan on the college admissions scandal — They Had it Coming.
What are your plans for this weekend?
