Tonight has been quite chilled - I roasted a chicken and made some of my patented "superpower" gravy to go with, I bred a new dragon, I did the theater podcast thing. But best of all J and I have come up with this idea to do the couch to 5 K thing once I get back from the states. I'll get some running shoes fitted while I'm in San Diego, then when I come back we're scheduled to go running twice a week, or, rather, building up to being able to run. I'm going to do it slower than their program recommends because they want you do to three days a week and I don't have that many days free, but I think this sounds fun. It's easy to get enthused about doing it with J, because he's really patient and I know he wouldn't make me feel slow and stupid (one of my biggest problems with exercising is getting depressed because I feel incompetent). But with the sun coming out this weekend, suddenly planning more outdoor stuff sounds like a really good idea, and doing a running program around Tooting Common would be really nice. And, well, per one of the notes I got today, anxiety/adrenaline gets killed ded by exercise, so more reasons to give it a go. Plus, you know, I need exercise, and since the urticaria has killed most of my muscle tone, this seems like a really perfect thing to try to do to gradually bring myself back into shape.
With that, I'm going to see if I can wheedle a massage out of J and then call it an evening.
