What Sunday’s Were Made For

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do;
the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.
~ Andrew Jackson


This weekend my training partner, Donna, was totally out of action. She’s a doctor and had some exams and a practical to get through this weekend for some additional course she’s been doing . I have missed her and I have missed our weekend training hikes.  Amazing how my body has missed it too. However, I have quite easily slipped into the most laid back mode.  After five years of studying part-time and having just completed my degree, I find I am absolutely loving this post-study freedom. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want.

Today was spent poolside, in a hammock with a book in my hand, that is when I wasn’t dozing off under the sun’s warm rays. It was absolute bliss!


But my conscience got the better of me and by late afternoon I headed to the pool to do just a few laps. You see on a weekend I swim laps. Apparently its great training for “The Mountain”. My goal is 200 laps. I am currently on 170.  But today was different. I can’t remember when last I was so relaxed and chilled out. So the thought of working in the pool and matching or beating my current 170 laps just wasn’t on my agenda. I ended up doing 50 laps. 50 is better than none and anyway I wanted to Skype my beautiful nieces who live in Mauritius before it got to late. Well, today, that was my excuse anyway!

Tomorrow, once again, I’ll be up at 5am while you all sleep on and as this coming Wednesday is a public holiday here in South Africa I know a nice long, hard hike is on the cards.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my weekend “off” while I could, for tomorrow I’m back in my hiking boots, Walking 4 Air!

Have a fabulous Sunday evening all and have the best week ahead!
