Great Day

Yesterday was the perfect day. I slept in, did some dishes and laundry, went for a run with my sister where I managed to run the farthest I've run this year without stopping. I only stopped once to change the song on my ipod, no stopping otherwise which is a huge improvement for me. I think the trick is to listen to songs in spanish because my mind focuses on the song lyrics instead of my being out of breath. Don't get me wrong, I still pay attention to my breathing but the song blocks the anxiety about being out of breath. After the run, our newly cleaned pool looked too inviting not to go in so I went for a swim. It was freezing but I can proudly say I was the first person in the pool this year without a wet suit. I then got to sit out in the sun before going to see Spiderman 2 with friends and then have a game night of Cards Against Humanity. Very productive day and so much fun.
