I'm still feeling pretty negative in general as I get pre-vacation anstiness. So I thought I'd talk about things I don't like. Because complaining is fun.
Yeah yeah. I know they're "so delicious" and "good for you" and whatever but ick. Slimy. And in guacomole? No thanks, unless it's loaded with lime juice, onions and tomatoes and then I'll have a taste. My one positive avocado experience (PAE) was in a wrap with sprouts, some other dressing, and tons of veggies. It was positive because I couldn't tell it was there.
First off, she looks graceful in a way I never will. Second- I super swear my body doesn't bend the right way to do yoga like it's supposed to be performed. I did yoga on the Wii the other day, which I gather is to yoga what tricycling is to cycling, and it was awful! Triangle pose requires me to turn my shoulders in a way they don't turn. Not one bit. It is not relaxing to me, it's just silly. I hear about people going to yoga and how it's so good for strength training and this is actually one hate of mine I wish I could get over. I know yoga is super good for you. Stretch, strengthen, prevent injury. All that good stuff. I might (big might) try a class at some point to see what it's like in a class setting and maybe enjoy it. But let's not hold our breath. I hear breathing is big in yoga.
As far as my regular life, Nick and I did a quick 30 minutes at the pool yesterday, and I did a bunch of sprints which are HARD. Normally I chug along steadily for 30 minutes or more, but adding the intervals had me tired and a little sore today. Very good. Tonight I'll run, and maybe tomorrow also, and then we will set off on our mid-Atlantic driving extravaganza for 9 days which will involves lots and lots of hiking and very little running. It will be a nice change!
