Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.
Aaaand… it’s October. How? Why? And where did 3/4 of this year go? (Don’t answer that. I know you’re all having the same questions.)

Last week I started the 8-week Power Zone Fall Challenge with PZPack and the Peloton Streakers. It’s a cycling challenge that we are taking on as part of a team, where we ride a minimum of 3 power zone rides per week, plus an optional 30-minute “accelerator ride” that earns our team extra points. Tanja and I are always up for a good challenge – keeps you on your toes, you know? – so of course we had to join. Do you enjoy exercise challenges?

This tweet from last week really resonated with me. I have warmed up a little bit to Instagram Stories, but Reels still stress me out and don’t get me started on YouTube videos. Most times, I prefer a photo with text over video content. This is why I still have a blog.

How did you cope with the social media outage on Monday? TBH, I was so busy at work (two back-to-back telcons that took up most of my day) that I didn’t even notice. I only knew about it because one of my Whatsapp message was in “limbo” for a while and I was wondering why it wasn’t being delivered. Goes to show you, life goes on even without Facebook and Instagram. Who knew?

I am looking forward to a long weekend. I had a “progress report” presentation this week for one of my projects and ended up working some long hours in the last couple of weeks to get the slides together. And while that part was fun, it was also a bit stressful because I am a bit of a perfectionist and want to deliver something good. But I am happy to report that the presentation went well, so now I am really looking forward to relax and recuperate this weekend and not think about the project for a little while. Do you have the day off on Monday, too? Any plans?
Enjoy your weekend!
