Every so often, I get caught up in other life things and the blog gets neglected. It’s sad but just how things go. It’s been a while since I’ve written a non-training post so let’s play a little catch up.
Two weekends ago, Ian and I met two of his friends for pho at a tiny Vietnamese restaurant on Argyle St. I ordered Pho Ga and it was outstanding. Ian and I also split an order of spring rolls that were pretty tasty too.
The next day it rained all day long so Ian and I decided to run errands and then hibernate in our apartment. Around 2 pm we started to hear music and decided to venture outside to find its source. Turns out there was a little festival a block over from us during the rainstorm. I give them a lot of credit for playing in that mess.
Work last week was horrendous, we had a big deadline and despite finishing our pieces early, we still were almost unable to submit due to a technical glitch. Talk about stressful. After I found out that our submission was successful and I wouldn’t need to work all Thursday evening, Ian took me out for dinner and a huge, much-needed beer.
Has anyone heard of having homework before classes start? I hadn’t either but apparently its a thing? My classes start this week but I spent a lot of time last week and this weekend with my new favorite book…
Last Friday I had a sports massage to work out whatever is going on in my calf. This was my first sports massage and I wasn’t sure what to expect but I really enjoyed it… after it was over. The entire massage wasn’t painful but oh man, I was seeing red when she was working on my calves. The massage therapist believes that my calf issue is nerve-related so she made sure to work along the nerves to help loosen any that may be pinched due to tight muscles. Whatever she did, it helped a lot and by Sunday, I was completely weird sensation-free!
On Saturday, I had to go back up to Evanston again to pick up something from the bookstore. You better bet, I wore my Michigan gear all over the Northwestern campus too. NU seems so different from UofM or maybe I have a different perspective on everything now. Thoughts for another day.
Yesterday, I met Katie and Miss Molly to go for a walk around the park. Katie and I caught up while Molly chewed on sticks and stalked squirrels and then Katie and I went to get froyo. It was so much fun!
Molly couldn’t wait to see me :).
