Days 86 & 87: Home

Day 86:  Yesterday I got to see Michael for the first time in six months!  It was the reunion that we have been waiting for the past year and it was perfect in every way.  Enough said.

The workout, however, was not.  I had to get at 3 a.m. to get in 35 minutes of yoga.  Well when I say “get up” it implies that I had actually fallen asleep, which I had not because of the massive amounts of anticipation.  My flow was actually decent considering this.  I realized that my balance at 3:10 a.m. is better than what it is at a normal hour of the day, or maybe it was a fluke?  Either way, I hope that I never have to try that out again to find out.

Day 87:  Today we went to the Navy Fitness Center on the Naval Base in Norfolk, VA and did our own respective workouts.  Michael powered through an hour on the bike and I did 40 minutes on the elliptical and 20 minutes of weight lifting.  We finished out our workout by playing a game of “Pig” on the basketball court….and I won.  My guess is that he let me win, after all, I did send a lot of gummy bear stocked care packages this past year!

We rounded out our sunny day with a fun walk on the beach with our new buddy Poseidon and some chocolate treats.  I have a feeling that everyday is going to feel like this for awhile; sunny and filled with sweet things that make me happy.
