Back in the saddle

OK, that's good, I feel much less out of sorts now. Between stress/fatigue/wanting to be at home with the cat, I barely made it out of the house except as strictly necessary this week, but I think I was having exercise withdrawal symptoms - a recovery week is a good idea in theory, but it is not much of a good thing when the stress chemicals are boiling in the veins!

I had a difficult time getting out of bed this morning, but I just about made it downtown in time for the beginning of the spin class at Chelsea Piers (as I biked down the west side path I had a surge of extreme enjoyment and relief as I reached the Boat Basin - definitely exercise withdrawal) - I had arranged to meet up there with Lauren, and we subsequently had a very nice brunch at the Half King.

(We solved the perennial sweet-or-savory brunch issue by ordering a spinach and cheese omelette and the "French toast waffle" plus two clean plates.)

Then I went back to the beautiful light-drenched cafe at Chelsea Piers and dug in for an hour and a half on the materials for this Shakespeare essay that I cannot find time to get done, had a short swim and rode home just as it was getting dark. Very good for the morale - basically I am picturing a lot of work time as well as exercise time there in the spring semester. I got a lot of work done yesterday, too - went all the way through the copy-edit on the manuscript of Invisible Things, wrote a number of letters of recommendation (only three more to go, unless I have miscalculated), did my reading for tomorrow's lecture - will now eat something and try and get another good chunk of work done this evening.

The next week remains slightly chaotic, but my last day of teaching is the 14th, and I am thinking that after that will be time to think about what my next block of training will look like. Some thoughts later this month on goals and plans for 2010...

Our brunch strategy has always been for everyone to order their eggsish things (savory) and then order one pancake/waffle/etc. (sweet) for the table to share. Works best if you have more than two, however.
