It’s fall again

I went for a swim in the public indoors pool I like a lot on Monday morning. I biked there and managed to get to home too before going to work. I liked it so much that I thought to do the same tomorrow.

My pilates lessons started again on Tuesday and it was nice. There’s just nine of us now in our group and we can keep distances easily. We can’t do the proper pilates breathing which is a bit of a downer since the exercises need it but we don’t let it bother too much.

After the pilates lesson I walked with one of the ladies to the underground station and asked her how her summer went and she told me her son had had depression about all of his adulthood and due to the stress and anxiety over our Covid19-situation he had killed himself and she started crying. I was devastated and tried just to be there for her while she gathered herself and then she said ”I’m sorry I unloaded all on you” and I said it was okay and wondered why we are so shamed to cry in public. What could be larger sorrow for a mother than to lose your child? I have no answer.

Anyways the week passed quickly and we had good working week and home too. On Friday we went to movies with my friend Heidi and my hubby and youngest one to see Tenet. One other my friend was supposed to come but her mom’s cat had an eye-trouble and had to be taken to the vet. Before the movie we met in the cafeteria that offers cake buffet; you get three pieces of cake for starters and after that you can eat more if you like (I had six pieces..).

Tenet was awesome! I don’t know why it’s been said to be hard to get the different time-travel thingies in order, we all thought it was very well done and clear and what a superb story. Also the fact that no CGI was used showed. I liked Robert Pattinson a lot in his role. There was also Clémence Poésy (Fleur in Harry potter-series) as a scientist and Aaron Taylor-Johnson but of course John David Washington was awesome too. The sound and photography were so great I doubt any movie will top Tenet soon.

There was also the Dune trailer before the movie and it was great! I bought the original movie last fall and I still have the LP from the first Dune. Do I need to say I loved the first book (never read the other parts).

Yesterday it rained all day and part of the night too but today I did a one-hour-walk in the nearby forest route and ate some bilberries too. Some old grannies I passed had bags full of mushrooms.

Keep on swimming

I’m a bit tired tonight. On Monday morning I did my swimming routine of 1 km in 33 minutes which was awesome. I had a private lane all the time since there was only the aquajoggers and the other lanes were full of schoolboys and slower adult swimmers, I was the only one on the ’fast lane’ and swimming with my hand paddles felt so good! During the night my shoulders and arms started to ache.

Yesterday I had my Pilates lesson and it was actually quite a tough one. I go to the advanced group since I’ve been doing Pilates ten years now. Today I haven’t been able to inhale deep since my back muscles are so sore, my abs aren’t even near so sore as the back is and my shoulders and arms were even more sore than the previous night. I had to put some piroxicam salve on them which I seldom do.

Today I went to a swimming technique lesson, for breast stroke. It went well and I learned the new technique (it’s been updated since I learned swimming as a kid) well enough. I also managed to get over my dislike of putting my face underneath the water which made me quite happy. There was six of us and the teacher was a quite nice lady and did good job with us.

Hubby came to the swimming hall to collect me and when we got home he made us dinner since I was so hungry, it was very nice of him. Now I’m off to bed and since it’s evening shift tomorrow and youngest one goes to school at 9 am I’ll get good long night. I hope I’ll get out of bed in the morning.

CU!
