My day started with a multitasking run. This is what a girl on a mission looks like.
I always know I am getting to the busy part of the semester when I start running all my errands via… running. In Sydney this works because I am pretty much equally sweaty whether I walk somewhere or run somewhere. It was a productive run but my legs felt a little tired for most of it, I knew it would give me a burst of energy for the rest of the day though so I pushed through. Plus I saw the most adorable couple running with their adorable sausage dogs towards the end and it made.my.day (although I did wonder if they ran too fast on their tiny legs if they would simply explode).
The rest of my day involved a whole lot of this. It was exciting.
I even read three articles in pigeon pose which felt incredible after my run.
In other groundbreaking news, I have started the lint war of 2015 on my favourite jumper, and it it not looking good for team Jessie, there is just too much lint to conquer. This jumper (again, Curtis thinks I’m weird for saying jumper instead of sweater? So many communication difficulties in our relationship) is my favourite at-home jumper EVER, it is so comfy and it covers my neck perfectly which is important to me as far as jumper necessities go.
I got it for $1 when I first went to Canada and had expected a NZ-esque summer when in reality most evenings were colder than a NZ winter. Not great when you are sleeping in a tent in the woods. I stocked up on thrift store finds and slept in a full set of clothes every night underneath three sleeping bags. Yeah, I am a little bit delicate 😉 Anyway, Curtis has threatened to burn the jumper unless I deal with the lint issue so this is going to be my new full time hobby. I usually try to practice not being too attached to my belongings, and actually left the jumper at Curtis’ place when I first left Canada, saying he could throw it out, but since he didn’t I re-fell-in-love with it and it is here to stay now. Do you love how you think you are reading a running/yoga blog and instead I write you an entire novel about a linty jumper? 🙂
So back to yoga…
Later in the afternoon I started doing a proper yoga practice in my room before realising that the sun was just setting (we just had daylight savings start yesterday) and so I cranked out this yoga sesh on the balcony instead.
The sun going down made the city look so golden and beautiful. Yoga outside always wins.
Dinner was this culinary masterpiece:
And now for the really truly exciting news (that lint story sure did set the bar high though 😉 ), BESTIE is coming home tomorrow! I am super excited to have my twinnie/flatmate/dede ku back. Have a safe flight my darling!!
Do you do daylight savings where you live? -We just had it yesterday and it has been nice to get a little extra sleep 🙂
Do you ever do errands on your run or is this just me?
