I got my car back from the mechanic today – it ended up needing a new battery on top of everything else. Damn it. Still it’s good to have wheels again. When I got home, I changed and headed to the gym. Usually I go to Fitness First in the city but tonight I went to Victoria Gardens. It’s so nice to just run, do your workout then head home instead of hanging around the city in the freezing cold waiting for a tram because they never seem to run that often after 7 pm.
While I was there, I got the timetable for both the Richmond gyms – they have heaps of weekend classes which rocks – I hate going into the city on the weekend and it’s too hard to get to Richmond on public transport. I think Saturday morning I’ll go to boxing class then head over to Albert Park for a run.
In un-diet related news, I got an email tonight about a short story I’d written – asking if it could be included in an anthology. I hadn’t even sent it to them – the editor had seen it on a website. Woohoo – this gives me such a boost because I’ve been working on my novel for so long which is a gruelling process without any immediate gains. Sometimes you wonder if you are just wasting your time. Anyway, if anyone is interested, the story is here – but be warned it’s an “adult” story with explicit content.
