man, i am going to be *so* fit. i have been bike riding, swimming, dog-walking and i went to an acrogym class three days ago (still hurting). we did vaulting, which was fabulous. i haven't vaulted since i was a kid, and it was very satisfying when i finally got over the horse. it was the fittest bunch of people. after warm up and stretches the teacher said "okay, we'll start with 60 taps", which turned out to be doing a handstand then tapping the opposite shoulder with one hand at a time (if that makes sense). i assumed he was joking, but stopped laughing when everyone else turned upside down and started tapping. there was a woman learning tissue in the other part of the gym, doing really beautiful stuff with the loose cloth.
bought some more toys for the bike from mec (lights, drink bottle + cage) and am now set for commuter cycling. i splashed out on panniers, which is very exciting. they're shiny and blue and easy to take on and off and i don't have to ride with a backpack on. yay! also a mec pack is like a vancouver rite of passage.
i like being on hols. lots of hanging out with friends and doing nothing. if only i get over this sense of guilt that i should be reading something.
