School started in France this past week, so that means we all hit the ground running. My girls are older now, so pretty much manage themselves but there are still papers to sign and books to cover.
Despite the general craziness, I managed to get in quite a few workouts. I had gone to have my orthodics adjusted recently. The muscle in the front of my right leg would tighten up and take forever (30 minutes) to loosen. So my podiatrist adjusted them and I absolutely wanted to try them out.
- Monday : 6,5 km on the treadmill
- Tuesday: Back to school, no fitness
- Wednesday : 9 km run
- Thursday : off
- Friday : upper body weights and ab work at the gym
- Saturday : 16,5 km long, slow run
- Sunday : I so wanted to go to the pool but it was closed, reopening on Monday. So I decided to run again, 6 km. The weather was glorious and my legs felt pretty good.
Overall, my shin muscle felt great and is no longer tight, my I have this small tweak in my knee, under my right kneecap. I am going to wait a bit and see how it evolves before going back to the podiatrist.
Life : Here are random pictures from my phone / life this past week.
After all the indulgence of vacation, I was dying for veggies but also craving carbs.
On Saturday I wanted to cook and had been dying to try a recipe from Deborah at Confessions of a Mother runner, Summer Veggie Lentil Loaf. I had bookmarked it back in August and had yet had a chance to make it. It was so good !
Farmer’s were protesting in Paris this week, and 1 500 tractors came to the city. This was taken from my office window one morning. They poured into the city. Roads & traffic were messy that day…
I am thinking of getting new glasses. Not only is my face really narrow, but I cut my hair recently and it is short, so my old ones look way too big. Even without the new haircut, I think they look too big which is why you hardly ever see photos of me in my glasses !
So I went and tried on some news ones. Plastic frames are still in style here… there wasn’t much choice of anything else. I think these fit pretty well but I still haven’t decided…
We have many house projects going on at the moment, and one of them includes getting rid of an old couch. It is in really good condition and I want to give it away but no takers. I sent this photo to my niece this week… hoping she’ll want it (without the cat of course) !
I am traveling for work this week so will probably be MIA a bit. How was your week ? Crazy with back to school ? Do you like picking out glasses ?
