It’s a beautiful, sunny, warm day and I’m wearing a sleeveless shirt in the office. My muscles are obvious, and my workout this morning was a good arm pump too. Ah, summer is coming…
1 mile running warmup
Bench – 10x45lb, 10x95lb, (5,5,5,5,3)x140lb
+ bonus biceps, triceps, weighted side bends, lat pulldowns, plankups (holy cow), plank
Good workout, if rather delayed this morning– I was waiting for someone to call me back and finally just sent them a chat msg that said "I’ll ping you when I’m back at my desk". Should’ve done that much earlier.
Went for a short lil run with $husband on Saturday (before our trip to the Brazilian steakhouse) and also ran yesterday, 4 miles of hotness. I’m not adapted to the warmer weather yet and I felt like my mouth was full of sand and dry the whole time.
This week is a mad scramble as I prep for my trip to China. I’m trying to make sure I have all the things I need on paper because my connectivity will be very limited. There’s some chance my VPN may be blocked, too. So all that’s a little bit anxiety-inducing. Right now I can’t get the hotel website to load; I want to print the address so I can give it to my taxi driver. I did order a phrasebook so I have it handy in case I need it; my Mandarin lessons are going quite slowly so I’ll probably resort to pointing at the phrasebook. But I’m trying to be more excited than anxious! Instead of dwelling on everything that could go wrong, I’m trying to remind myself that HELL YEAH I’m going on a cool trip.
