dancezwithkittehz - summer life rehaul!


Recommended Posts

Challenge update:

 

Run 1 of 2 for the week. Run today went well! I am getting slightly faster! (AKA I am running more than walking now!) Today I averaged out to 15:15 min per mile pace. My first lap was actually under 15 min though so that's exciting! (Second mile was closer to my normal 16 min per mile pace.) I think if I'd finished up the second mile it would have come down again. Both of the uphills hills fell during mile 2 so I slowed down a lot for those too.

Truth! Responsible adulting is hard!

 

Today in challenge updates:

Tonight is aerial wheeeeeee. Also I have been sneaking in some strength work at work today. My dips SUCK and I don't work on them enough so I am doing 1 foot assisted top of dip holds (macgyvered a way to do it balancing between a desk and my chair arm. Hahahahaha)

 

 

Non (current) Challenge things:

I got a little lazy on Japanese studying after I dropped it from being on my official challenge list and also when work got super busy. I am trying to make sure I work on studying kanji at least every other day or so, and work on Memrise lessons or watch Japanese youtube videos at about the same frequency.

 

I also decided to start studying Spanish (Mexican Spanish in specific since they had the option) since I really like the layout of Memrise AND I really should learn some damn Spanish since there are native speakers everywhere where I live. I have always been a bit of a language dork so I should really take advantage of all the free resources that exist now to LEARN MORE LANGUAGES WHEEEEE.  (Perhaps brushing up on French can be my next task later on? Then I can eavesdrop on my coworker's convos with his family for practice. Or also just talk for practice, but it's fun to listen to full pace super fluent conversations in languages I don't know!)

I love how you say you got lazy about studying Japanese, and yet keep studying both Japanese AND decided to pick up Spanish. :P 

 

I feel like this is such an accurate summary of how I deal with things in my life. Hahahahahahahahaha.

Oh hey. I never updated on how circus went! 

 

I almost kind of sort of got into crossback all by myself! I managed to get the silk above my butt on the right side via just getting the leg in the right position, but the left, however, I could not quite get in place. I'm pretty sure my left hip is actually more flexible so I'm not sure why this is the case, but no matter! It was sooo close I just reached back and moved it up above my butt with my hand hahahha. Sadly it is sad weak week because yay PMS soo I couldn't quite get into the inverted position. UGH. But so close! And progress on the part I was struggling with the most!

 

Also! I ALMOST got into catchers properly. SO CLOSE. I did probably 4 or so working on it from hooking the right (thus anchoring with the right hand and using the left to try and get the silk looped around the left leg. I couldn't quite get it there. Ugh. I tried one from the left side hook and IT WAS SO CLOSE probably because that made my right hand the working hand instead of the anchoring hand? However, since I have only been working this previously on the right side hook my left hand was just DONE by the time I almost had it wrapped. I didn't have the energy in my hand left to hold me up for me to get out via crunching up to the top and back to hanging from hands soooo I did a slow ungraceful descent to the ground to flop (since I wasn't properly fully in catchers the slow upside down descent the proper way was not doable.)

Well yesterday was a rollercoaster of emotions. I found out I have an audition in just over a week for Magenta in Rocky Horror (wooohoo!) which is exciting! And makes me nervous but it will be FUN regardless of how it goes.

 

Then later in the day I heard from a friend that one of my old coworkers and friends suddenly died during surgery :(. I was going out to happy hour with friends from that same circle so it was good to be able to hang out and support one another and talk about how much we are going to miss her. It honestly still hasn't quite sunk in yet because it came so out of nowhere. She was going in for a really minor procedure, but any time you go under sometimes bad things can happen -- her blood pressure suddenly spiked and she had a heart attack. Saaadness. :(:(

Needless to say I didn't do much challenge-y stuff to wrap up the last day of this one on Saturday as between shark week moodiness and loss of my friend I had zero extra energy for getting stuff done. I DID however clean quite a bit as well as cook on Sunday sooo even though it was technically after the challenge I still count that as my 30 min of adulting required for the week.  Now on to plan the next challenge!
