[Lent 5] joy sadhana

When I was almost at the T station this morning, I remembered I'd forgotten to pack tights. After not too long, I remembered that there's a 24-hour CVS in Harvard Square; so I bought a pair of black tights there. And once at the gym I realized that because I'd taken my bigger backpack (planning to grocery shop after work), I didn't have my earbuds with me. So since I was already starting later than usual, and I haven't been wicked in-the-zone on the treadmill recently anyway, I opted to just do a strength-training workout rather than try to force myself through a treadmill workout without being able to hear the tvs I would be trying to watch.
