I will be leaving in about an hour and a half to Cologne or Koln. It is spelled both ways here. I still have yet to pack. I’m a procrastinator, I know!
Breakfast was so beautiful this morning, I had to take a picture of it:
Oatmeal with pb, strawberries, 1/2 banana, and flax seed. It was amazing!
I just got back from an awesome 2 hour yoga class. We did a lot of holding planks, some fast moves, some slow moves, and a lot of holding other poses in the first hour. I didn’t want to tire out my shoulders for the swim tomorrow, so I held every other plank instead of all of them. I tried not to push myself, but it is hard when you are in a huge class. I get so competitive. I know you are not supposed to be that way in yoga, but I can’t help it! My arms are already sore! For the second hour we did A LOT of stretching, lied in savasana, and then meditated (for ten minutes!). I love meditating, and I really want to work on getting that in on an almost daily basis. I just don’t know where to start yet. I just ordered a yoga book in the mail. When it comes in, I’ll talk more about it!
It has been raining for a few hours now, and it is actually cold here in Germany. I wasn’t quite ready for the summer to end!!! It’s 57 degrees, and it’s 1pm already!
I was starving when I got home and used some of the chicken from last night in with a salad. I also warmed up some of my Parmesan Basil grits from last night. mmmmm….
Well, I have to pack for my triathlon tomorrow!!!! I will post my race report when I get back from Koln. We are planning on driving up there today, spending the night, racing, then driving to Bernkastel Kues for a wine festival, then heading home! I should have a race report up by Sunday morning (Germany time!) Have a great weekend!
