"I made a pact with myself to never complain about an event I've successfully finished. No matter what my finish time or pace, I will cross the line with a pocket full of gratitude. Records are meant to be broken, but those moments are far and few between. Every adventure offers an opportunity to evolve, explore, and celebrate life. And that is the gift that keeps on giving." Jenny Hadfield
2. I went to the library and my favorite librarian who likes to recommend books for me was there. She
The Passage by Justin Cronin She told me twice not to give up on it. It is the first of a trilogy.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness also the first of a trilogy.
Buried Secrets by Joseph Finder
The Innocent by Taylor Stevens
Does anyone know any of these and want to chime in? Then we got talking about young adult series and she recommended City of Embers I believe. I figure I can get that one at school. She told me to have all four at once ready to go. I think it was four.
I also checked out the newest by Robert Tanenbaum and a couple of chick lit types by Marcia Willett.
I also got Next to Love by Ellen Feldman because the jacket made it sound good.
I think I am set for awhile. I need to stop writing this and go read!
3. This is a different week for me workout wise because most of my workouts are early morning. Mondays was early because I squeezed it in before my doctor's appointment. Tuesday was my swim day. Thursday will be a second swim day due to the race this weekend and no swim lesson on Saturday. The only day I worked out after school was Wednesday. I love the early morning stuff but it rarely works out this way. Plus the tireds catch up with me.
4. January Stats
Miles Run: 112.7
Miles Biked: 0
Yards Swam: 11,600 Love this one. Doesn't it sound huge? I still have no real comprehension of reasonableness for swims so this sounds Olympian to me.
Number of Races: 1
Number of Visits to the Gym: 14 (I counted the Saturday pool lessons since the place is affiliated with my gym and that's why I can go there.)
