We finally managed to pull ourselves away from work and make our way to the UP. There’s still work to do up here…I go up for tenure in the fall, so there will be little actual vaca in this vaca…but that work seems much more pleasant from Michigan’s considerably cooler UP. And it stays light until about 11:30, so you can still have long days working and end up at the beach around 8 for some R & R.
Took a 5-mile walk with hubby and the dog along the portage yesterday. Our longest walk yet this summer, and a walk I did quite a bit as a walk-run two summers ago. Our pace was really slow (5 miles in 2 hours!), but we had to stop to let the dog cool off in the water 5 times along the way, so that accounts for some of the slower pace. I wondered about heading off on my own to see if I could walk-run it a bit faster.
Packed only the case for the pilates dvd, so I did yoga yesterday & I’ll be doing yoga again today. I head back south next Friday to attend a workshop, so I’ll get it then. I’m worried about the workshop, though: the price includes meals, which I’ll have no control over & I’m sure it’ll end up being muffin and warm cookie heaven. Still, I’ve made really good, but slow, progress, and I want to hold onto that progress and see even more progress on the scale when I get back, not slide backwards.
Happy 4th of July chicks!
