Getting back into paleo mode after a day in birthday mode is going to be a real chalkenge. Let's see if I can snap back into it or if I flounder about eating toast all day tomorrow

Managed it though didn't I? I decided i needed some porridge to start the day (not paleo but Oats are good for old farts like me and believe me, I felt so rough after yesterday's indulgence I reply needed some comfort food) and then spent the rest of the day on veggies and protein only. It was easier than I expected. Loaded the fridge with tofu for the week. Bring it on! 

 

In other news, did a little dance, made a little love (well, not love but salad which is almost as good) and got down to the rowing club to do a 5k ergo in the afternoon. Work very productive, but simple enough that I could listen to a  whole audiobook while I was doing it. Nice! *high fives self*. Did a quick arms/core bodyweight workout in the evening. Sitbups, press ups and hip stretches, alternating, 5 sets each. 

Hm, just realised I haven't done Duolingo yet so I'd better get on that hadn't I. 

 

Today should have been a long run day but I swapped it because running after booze is awful, so I'll do that tomorrow instead. Apparently @Scaly Freak and @TimovieMan have been plotting to hunt down scouts with bows and arrows so I will be disguised as a tree just in case.

Ahem. Well, that didn't work out. It was raining all morning and although that wouldn't always put me off o just couldn't be buggered. Tomorrow then! 

 

I didn't waste the day though. Spent time working through an online course, did some outdoor meditation based on the koan way and had a profound moment of self knowledge: what I realised was that I am a person who thinks the koan way is a load of old bollocks. 

 

Ate well. 

 

No, really, I will run tomorrow, you'll see!

Wow, so I'm six pages deep and the challenge only starts properly today. Well, that's what happens if you start a theological discussion I suppose. 

Hello everyone. How are you all getting on? 

 

I've had a decent day. Started with meditation, followed by a run. It was pretty unsatisfactory - slow, leaden legs, and I felt really hungry and shaky. I think the breakfast was a mistake. I had some out of date coconut that wanted eating so I had that and a plum, but that seems not to be good running food. I did it all but s - l - o - w. It'll be my last run before the race but all of my last few long runs have been disappointing. It isn't really doing much for my morale. Well, we'll see what happens on the day. I'll try and do some short runs early in the week but then rest my whole southern hemisphere completely from then on and hope I can coax some life out of my poor old pins. 

After that I did more dance practice. It's feeling a bit better. I'm still working on the running man but it's not very smooth. The action of sliding the front foot backwards just looks like a hop, because I can't really slide it properly so the overall effect is a bit too uppy-downy. I have a video i'm studying but the person in it is young and only weighs as much as a bag of sugar and her floor is wooden, not carpeted and I have none of those advantages. 

Duolingo done, plus a lot of Portuguese reading/listening and I've been eating very sensibly (cocunut excepted) so basically ticking all my boxes 👍

I've heard of them but I can't help you I'm afraid. This brings me onto a problem I have with being the sort of person who quotes reaction gifs. Half the time I have no idea what the gif is from and what extra cultural subtext it might have beyond the obvious man-saving-woman-from-death-using-a-bucket or frog-saying-let's-make-pancakes surface level message and I hope I am not making too many ridiculous mis-steps.

Well yes, and presumably this Ryan is the one in the left...? It's true that there's probably not much subtext in this one but who knows?

I'm sure it's wholesome enough. It's a kids show about Hercules. I can't imagine there's anything too distasteful or subversive going on. You appear to be of the lady persuasion in this gif, but it suits you.
