This week marked a return to real book reading rather than an e-reader. I read two! One was Jasper Fforde’s new book, Early Riser, which was good. Very absurd but I enjoyed it. I would recommend his Thursday Next series over this book though if you had to read just one of his books. I also read Maeve Higgins’ Maeve in America which was a collection of personal essays. There were a few on immigration that I quite liked but overall, the book was fine. Not my highest rec but it was a quick read.
This weekend has been fairly mellow. After a month of Whole 30 (yay! done!), I ate some of Run Fast, Eat Slow‘s superhero muffins and my long run pace was about 25 seconds faster. Yay! I think carbs are helpful for endurance workouts (says almost every sports nutrition article out there, I know).
I went to a patient’s 90s hip hop birthday party that was a lot of fun I dressed up in scrub pants, a shirt that had “NO” spray-painted on, and several attached scrubbie sponges. Get it? No Scrubs! While I had to explain my outfit several times, it was definitely a hit once people got the joke. As everyone knows, there’s nothing funnier than a joke that needs to be explained (waaaiiitttt….). For those not up on their 90s hip hop, “No Scrubs” was a pretty big hit for the group TLC.
I’m off to California next weekend! I can’t wait. Then it’ll be two weeks before I head off to Japan! I even have reservations at the New Sanno! April is the month of no work, ha ha.
