Phew. And just like that I disappeared there for 10 days. My apologies.
The last week could easily go into the history books as one of the most exciting weeks of my life. First, I ran (and completed) my first ever halfmarathon in San Francisco on July, 31 (separate recap to come!), and then I didn’t really have time to process that, because I flew out to Colorado for 5 days the next morning and had one of the most exciting weeks of my career (I’ll also have tell you about that in more detail a little later).
But let’s talk about August. The last few weeks were really busy, so I am anticipating (and hoping for) this month to be a bit more low key.
+ We’re planning to (finally) look into buying a new couch. We had our second-hand Ektorp loveseat from Ikea for at least 8 years and it has served us really well (it is still in pretty good shape!), but we’re ready for a bigger, more comfortable couch and we finally have the space for it.
+ I am hoping to catch some of the Olympic competitions on TV. I am not a dye-hard fan, but the Olympics (and all sports events really) always remind me of how sports can bring people together. Not a bad thing in this day and age.
+ I am going to take it easy in regards to workouts this month. Since I was gone all last week, I took a nice little break, but am planning to get back into a routine this week. I haven’t decided yet if I am just going to keep my workouts low-key for a while, or if I should find a new training plan and set a new goal. (TBH, I do better with a plan.)
+ I have a few new baking recipes on my to-try-list and I hope I can do some baking this month (if temperatures permit – I don’t really want to use the oven when it’s 95°F outside).
+ I am hoping to catch up on some reading. I haven’t really gotten that far with the book I am reading for the PostalBookclub and I started another book simultaneously – as one does, right?! – that just became available for digital checkout at my library.
What’s going on with you in August?
