Lazy days and Independence Day



Finished – Charles Reade’s A Woman-Hater

Run – .5 miles

Zumba – 1 hour

Great class. Managed to get slightly better night’s sleep the night before, so getting up for class was less of a chore than usual.

Finished Charles Reade’s A Woman-Hater (1877). Learned that if you flirt with ballet dancers when your opera singer wife has stepped out of the room, you will break your spine and die.


Finished – Henry James’s The Bostonians

Run – .5 miles

Body weight circuit – x2

Zumba – 1 hour

Finished Henry James’s The Bostonians before lunch. I felt pretty mixed about it (I read it because there’s a woman doctor in it for about 50 pages), but it was overall not bad. I went to the gym after a long-ish day of working on an article and intended to use it to clear my head, since the revisions on this thing were killing me. Got in a .5 mile warm-up and two rounds of the body weight circuit before I headed to class. I fully (fully!) intended to stay, but our usual teacher was out, and I REALLY didn’t want to deal with a sub. So, I went home, worked for a little, practiced German and did a home-brew Zumba class. This was my favorite song I did (don’t ask me how I found it, because I legitimately have no idea):


Run – 2 miles

I spent the day doing some work and running some errands (including five loads of laundry. Oi). Kept the run short, since my legs were still feeling a little beat up from the day before.


Run – 2 miles

Celebrated the holiday a day in advance with some fireworks, food, and friends at Blossom Music Center, but preceded it with a two mile run.

Gym closed. Took the day too sleep late and laze around reading and writing before bingeing on “Twin Peaks” in the evening.



This was supposed to be a race day (5K), but I accidentally shut my alarm off before I woke up for the race. Wah wah. Felt pretty weird the rest of the day – didn’t sleep well – so spent most of the day packing for Hawaii and cleaning.


Run – 2.5 miles

Body weight circuit – x2

First day of summer teaching, and it felt nice (if a bit harried) to get back into the swing of teaching a class. Worked on the article I’m presenting at NAVSA next week – hoping to get the full version drafted tomorrow.

Total miles: 7.5

Total books: 2
