Had a good workout this morning. I decided to run to the gym, as it's only 1.3km (according to google maps..) and then have my regular workout. I have 3 different workouts, so the process repeats itself every week, and I'll get a new schedule every 4-6 weeks.
I normally cycle to the gym, and then they have me doing a warming up of; cycling! Feels slightly useless to me, so I thought I'd have a much better (and more fun!) warming up when I'd run there.
I couldn't figure out a way to bring my water bottle with me, so I just carried it, but running with a bottle in one hand doesn't exactly improve your running. Maybe it's a good idea to take an empty bottle with me (hardly any weight!) and fill it at the gym with tap water.
For lunch I made myself some stuffed pumpkin. Very yummy! It's easy to prepare and as soon as it's in the oven you can start doing something else around the house. I did some studying in the mean time, for my exam next week, which I'll be doing a lot over the next couple of days.
The weather's extremely sunny today and it's making me happy! I should definitely go outside for a while this afternoon. I can't keep studying for hours without a break anyhow.
