It's Friday again! I love Fridays so that I can have a long sleep-in on the weekend and going for my weekly long run on Sundays. Aside from that, I might have a chance to tackle one of the many ambitious recipes on my to-do list which I am usually to lazy to get to.
One of the many things that I am very happy with at the moment is that I have finally bought a Garmin Forerunner 410 that I have been hesitating for far too long. I always spend all my money on food and Lululemon clothes that I my 'fitness' fund is empty. But after a few agonising misfortune with Runkeeper and Runmeter I threw in the towel and vow to myself to buy a Garmin. So far I like it and it does give me an overall good GPS coverage except for my runs in the CBD on Thursdays. The same happened to Runmeter, the data are always wonky when I run in on the same route on Thursdays. It's also made my long runs more enjoyable because it constantly display the average pace I running and I get more even pacing with it. One of the biggest problem I have before was that I run too fast for a few kms and then too slow for the next few.
I love doing a positive Friday post because I try to infuse some happy genes before the weekend starts and it's always a good idea to be happy and here is an article that I found on MindGreenBody.com that I can't wait to share.
5 Things Happy People Do
And to finish off such a positive photo I'm sharing some of my favourite finds this week:
A friend posted a photo of these uber cute pups on Facebook and it just made my day.
Do you Chaturanga? I found this photo of me doing a side plank in yoga class last year and I find it so hilarious that I have to share it here. I look more like I was striking a side prawn pose. Yes, yoga makes me happy regardless how uncoordinated and silly I look when I am doing it. It calms my mind and body after a long day at work and amuse myself with the poses that I struggle and finally able to do it and most of all it allows give me 'me' time to just breathe deep and long to clear my mind. If you have not tried it out, there are free classes every Wednesday evening at Lululemon Stores in Britomart and Ponsonby and you don't have to purchase or bring anything. Just pop over for a 60 minutes relaxation after work/study and you will love it. Again, I am not associated with Lululemon or benefited in any monetary ways. I just love the free yoga classes and their high quality clothing.
