It’s Thursday which means it’s time for Things I Love Thursday! First up though, I’ll recap my day. After playing with the dog outside all morning I finally
dragged willingly drove myself to the gym for an 8×800 speed workout. I started out with a mile warmup and did my sprints at a moderate 5-k pace (7:30-8:00 minute mile paces) and recovered with 400 meters at a 10:00 minute mile pace. 7 miles and an hour later I was soaked in sweat and ready to pass out on the gym floor (I might be exaggerating a little). I resisted that urge and headed straight for the showers instead.
After putting myself back together, I drove to Walmart to pick up a new battery for my 35mm Canon SLR camera (which my Grandma gave me for my high school photography class 3 years ago, wow was it really that long ago?!) Anyway, I used to be very into darkroom photography and somewhere between graduating and completing my first year of college I kind of abandoned it. I am excited to start taking photos again though! I should scan and post some of the photos I took in high school sometime.
When I got home I ate lunch, weeded the garden, played with the pup again, and laid outside in the beautiful sunshine for a while. I’m going to miss these kinds of days come February!
