Sunday Salon: Spring has sprung

Sunday Salon

Hello, everyone!

This week I posted my review of The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark, finished reading Let’s Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste by Carl Wilson, and Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant (review up tomorrow).

The snow has really begun to melt, and I can already begin to feel the warmth of the sun. I went on a 5-6k run yesterday for the first time in a long time. I don’t remember the last time I ran that much. As a result, my legs are a bit sore today. I am going to try to run once a week if not a couple of times a week. I’ve done yoga again too, and I got some of the Jillian Michaels exercise DVDs. It wouldn’t hurt to lose a couple of pounds and inches. The warmer weather is when I get motivated to exercise and not any new year.

Even though I am reading more books, I do feel I am falling behind in my giant library book stack and I have not touched Walden at all since I started it. It’s going to be a busy week too so I doubt I’ll have much time for reading.

How is spring in everyone’s neck of the words?

    Woke up to the gorgeous sunny day here. Reading your post made me want to go for a run, but my wintry self isn’t quite in shape for that yet (much less 5K!)

      Hi Belle! Welcome to my blog. I don’t think I’ve run 5K in almost two years, but I walk a fair bit. Still, my legs are feeling it! Gotta start somewhere I guess. Hope you have a lovely day outside and with the books!

    The sun has returned today in my part of the UK but over the weekend the bitter cold wind, rain, and even some snow came 🙁 Seeing the sun is such a motivation to get out and about, especially to exercise. Fingers crossed the sun decides to stay!

      Hi Jessica! I hope your week is going well. The weather has turned foul around here too as I wore my down coat to work this morning. Have a good weekend!
