Sunday R. and I went out for dinner with a Groupon deal 2 for the price of 1. We have been at this restaurant before. The food is great but the interior is great too. Part of the restaurant is like a library and we are always lucky to get a seat at one of the tables in that part of the restaurant.
Voice is still not good. I think it’s some kind of virus on my vocal cords. My lung capacity isn’t very well either. Lori, I know you are worried but don’t be, I’m just waiting another week to see if it gets better. I promise I will see a doctor next week if it’s still the same.
I did it! I ran 5K today.
It didn’t matter I walked for a minute after every 2 songs. It didn’t matter I have a lower lung capacity at the moment. I didn’t matter it was the slowest 5K I have ever ran.
What matters is that I did it!
From here on I can work towards running without walking and getting slower. But after such a crappy year, just doing a 5K was a big achievement today.
Distance: 5.1 K / 3.1 miles
Weather: dry, not too much wind, 2C (35 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama.
Photo a day challenge:
As of the first of this month I’m also posting my photo a day on my Facebook page. So you might have seen them already but since not all my blog readers are FB friends, I am still posting it here too.
February 26: Light.
Taken July last year.
February 27: My view today.
Pretty boring because I was at work.
February 28: Reflection.
March 1: Yellow.
Of course this had to be Spring flowers.
March 2: Something borrowed.
I don’t borrow things so I use a very free interpretation of this prompt. I borrowed this little guy’s permission to take his photo.
March 3: My name is …. Franciska.
Female for “Franciscus” meaning Frenchman; coming from the holy Franciscus from Assisi. His birth name was Giovanni but after his father took a business trip to France, he started calling him Franciscus. So my name means “French girl”. The photo is the cathedral of Assisi that we visited in 2009 and where the holy Franciscus is laid to rest.
It’s funny that I never knew this after I looked up for today’s prompt what my name means. Of course it’s not why my parents gave me this name, I was named after my grandfather.
March 4: On my mind.
