I gave in and got a gym membership, mainly because I have three gyms in a 400m radius around my house. The one I chose has a nice “women’s gym” that’s quite nice and quiet in the early hours when I usually go (the general gym floor is also quite quiet but it feels less cosy)… and now I’ve googled strength exercises for runners. What in the world is happening? How long till I hate all gyms again?

I’m putting off going for today’s 8km run by post-processing photos and scheduling posts. Maintaining a running streak is all fun and games but then you realise that there are still a couple of months of the sun only appearing every couple of weeks because of short daylight hours and general cloudiness. The summer always makes me forget what’s to come!

Sometimes I think I’m abusing the “hold” system for our library system by always having holds on about ten books (some of which I will most likely not get for another 3 years because there are 245 people in front of me in the queue for 5 copies) but then I remember that we’re allowed up to 100 holds at once… so clearly I am not the worst offender.
