  • Mood:


So, here I am back in Ottawa! I've actually been back for a couple of days, but the jet-lag has been particularly bad, and has prevented me from being able to articulate much beyond "bleugh". I'm gradually returning to my old, semi-articulate self, though. So that's good.

The heat here is brutal. Fortunately, the house is pretty cool and comfortable, but I went out for a run this morning (the training schedule officially re-starts in a couple of days, but I'm trying to get myself back in workout mode rather than walking around touristing mode), and I nearly collapsed at the 20-minute mark. Well, okay, that's a little melodramatic -- but I wasn't feeling too good, let's just say that. Having since chugged my bottle of water and some gatorade, I'm feeling much better. Also, a cold shower has reset my internal temperature, but yikes -- exercising is tough when it's like this.

My vacation was wonderful, although much too short. I can basically sum it up by saying that I spent an awful lot of time staring at things -- which makes for a good vacation in my book. :) I have lots of pictures, and one of my goals for today is to download them all off my camera, so maybe I'll post a couple here later. We shall see.

I'm trying to decide what else to do today. With the weather like this, I kind of want to just flop with a book, or with my knitting, or a movie or something. But I really ought to get something accomplished. The garden/yard is a disaster, but the idea of working outside right now is... not appealing. I could go to Mooney's Bay and go swimming. That would count as training, even. But it's going to be an absolute zoo, which makes it rather less appealing. Hmmm...

    I'm something of a conflicted Canadian, and nothing brings it out more than the depths of winter. I grumble a lot about how much I hate winter,…
