Golden Week can now officially begin, but this year, the public holidays actually fall on a weekend (go figure) so in the end it's only two days off, instead of the usual week-long vacation. It will be a few days off filled with sweet nothing, and a chance to catch up with friends and tidying up my house.
I also tried a boot camp-style class last week, at a fitness club near my office, and it was the best workout I've ever had! It left my body oh-so-sore, which means I used muscles that have never been used. It was a combination of running, jumping, lunges, push-ups, abdominal crunches and weights done in a circuit, and I could barely keep up but it was lots of fun. It was in a small group with an instructor, and I went first thing in the morning, before work.
It made my second-guess my gym routine and membership; when I go to my regular gym, I don't really push myself and just hop on the treadmill for a run, then do a few weight sets and call it a day. I tend to be a bit lazy on my own, so I'm wondering if I should take more of those fitness classes with an instructor instead, where I actually break a sweat and can barely move the next day. Thoughts? Plus, my regular gym is closed on Wednesdays, and doesn't open until 10am- what is that all about?!
Also, I'm looking for a place to sublet for a week or two in Montreal, to be in the midst of the city and live my old life for a bit (since my family home in a tad further out in the suburban jungle, and not sure I'm even allowed to drive a car or know how to!). If you know anyone who is away on holiday in late July and would sublet their place, please email me!! I looked at Airbnb too.
