"they swing swiftly towards happier times"

me: "I kinda wanna just go home and take a nap, but I'm gonna go to the gym after work."
Katie: "You're hardcore."
me: "Well, I haven't been to the gym in 4 days."
Katie: "The fact that you pay attention to that and use that as ammo for your next gym-going experience..."
me: "Well I worked here for a year before I joined the gym and then was a member for three months before I actually started going."

Earlier today I was thinking I would do the rowing machine and then the track, but I tiredness meant I opted for just the track.  Various people suggested I should run outside due to the beautiful weather, which is valid.  I was really desirous to get a baseline for how fast I can run a mile, though, which is easiest to do on an indoor track.  So I did a mile (and definitely cannot run the whole way -- most laps I alternated running and walking half-and-half) with time 10:20.  I was seriously impressed and almost wonder if that's accurate.  I walked two laps after and then went home.  I wasn't feeling up to running (even half-and-half) another twenty minutes, though I felt lame that I exercised for such a short time.  My defense is that I hadn't been to the gym in four days (plus the fact that I've been getting less than ideal amounts of sleep for at least as long).

I went grocery shopping.  I was gonna get cranberry juice, but they only had it in concentrate.  Guess a trip to Shaw's is in my future.

I saw bananas when I walked in and thought about how whenever I buy bananas I don't finish eating the bunch before they start to go off but the warm weather makes my appetite like zero and smoothies could be v. good for that.  Anyone have blender recommendations? 'cause ours is rly laem.  --  Speaking of, our can openers are a bit shite as well, so suggestions for a new one of those as well would be lovely.

When Terry and I talked last Tuesday, he said he'd called me on Saturday.  I have evening commitments for the rest of the week, so I decided to go for a walk in the beautiful weather and give him a call.  He said he was actually gonna call me later tonight, was apologetic, and even had a valid excuse for Saturday.  We talked briefly before he had to go, and he said he'd call me tomorrow.
