I drove to my new, recently opened gym early this morning, but when I turned the corner to get into the parking lot, I realized the lights were out. They were having an issue with the electricity, and they had no power. The joys of a recently opened place.
Anyway, not something worth getting annoyed over, stuff happens. I’m sure it was a million times more frustrating for them than for me.
I figured I might as well skip today’s workout and take a rest day, but then I was already in my running clothes, and then I remembered we runners are so cool and easygoing, we don’t need anything to go running except our running shoes, so why not just run outside.
So I drove back home, because there’s one more thing we need, our GPS watch. I got my Garmin, and went for a nice run outside, not too easy, not too hard: 10.5KM/6.5M at 04:54 Min/KM (07:53 Min/Mile).
I had to reset my watch the other day because the elevation measure somehow got messed up and it was way off, same long route I usually do, which measures about 30-40 meters elevation gain throughout the whole run, was suddenly giving me 300 meters elevation gain.
Now it seems to be working fine, but I can’t find the feature for 1-second recording instead of smart recording (every few seconds), so I’m not getting an accurate measure at any given second, which sucks.
Last week we celebrated Passover, and we had a few days off from work/school.
We had a great time with our family, quantity and quality time, always needed!
I know I have the most amazing and perfect kids in the whole world, but when I spend a lot of time with them, I discovered new ways in which they are perfect and I didn’t even know it.
A few random pictures from last week:
Picking up flowers, it was permitted of course:
Family bike ride, or cross training. The pictures don’t do justice to how hard carrying the buggy was:
Around Tel Aviv:
Random lunch, eating matzah too:
Some adult time in the evening:
Retail therapy for our house, I have neglected it, my budget goes to running gear:
I am so happy they opened this store in Israel. Now there’s officially no more space in my kids’ closets:
Grocery shopping, the never ending chore. I actually enjoy this store, it’s a health market where I buy a lot of the stuff I eat:
At the beach:
What is the weirdest reason why you had to miss a workout?
