road biking 1:15:00 [1] 20.0 km (3:45 / km)

Biking to buy a car (success!) and then into downtown for a Dylan's Burger lunch (yummy) and then back up the hill home again. First time biking from town back home to the new house. It does take longer, but it's only about 20 minutes and 6km. We biked on Gula Stigen for the end part, which is the straightest and most scenic, but I wonder if taking the paved bike path along the main road, although longer, would actually be faster. In the winter it might be necessary.

Nap time at home afterwards. Phew.

other 30:00 [0] 2.6 km (11:32 / km)

Walking to and from school again today. This is my last day at work before maternity leave! It's been fun co-teaching PE and teaching orienteering for the past 2 weeks, but I'm looking forward to having some down time at home. I've left lesson plans for the teacher, so hopefully I've taught him enough that he can finish the unit.

I found a tick on my ankle in the afternoon, and when I tried to pull it out it broke a bit :( I made Ross come home and do surgery to get the rest out. The tendon there is a bit sore and hurts a bit when I walk, but no bulls eye and no other sign of it being a problem. Hopefully it doesn't look infected tomorrow. One would think I would have noticed it if it was on my ankle in the shower in the morning, but I wasn't looking too closely. Hm.

Another evening of Terraforming Mars. This game took 3 hours, which was way longer than I expected it to take. I think Ruairi and I were playing at a normal pace, but Ross was taking too many turns :)

other (walking) 30:00 [0] 2.6 km (11:32 / km)

Walked to and from school today, but that was it. Lots of walking yesterday made my stomach feel a bit sore today. Stayed in to bake cookies after work to bring in for my last day at work tomorrow before maternity leave!

other (walking) 1:00:00 [0] 5.2 km (11:32 / km)

It was skoljoggen, which means the whole school walks to the river and runs a 5km course. More walk than run for majority of them, but they get out there. I walked there and back with the students.

This evening a neighbor stopped by to invite us to fika at his house on Sunday. It's such a novelty and a surprise to have such friendly neighbors! So now I have to brush up on my Swedish fika conversational skills. I'm nervous, but having to speak more Swedish is good for me!

To and from school again.

other (walking) 40:00 [0] 3.5 km (11:26 / km)

Was tired, but really wanted to get out after work. Didn't move too quickly on the muddy trails, but walked Gula Stigen south and then swung by the grocery store on the way home.

other (walking) 30:00 [0] 2.6 km (11:32 / km)

It's about 1.3km one way to walk to work from the new house. So not quite the same exercise as walking from the apartment, but I can sleep later in the morning :)
5 PM

other (walking) 55:00 [0] 4.0 km (13:45 / km)

Walked around Gottsunda, the neighborhood next to mine, for awhile catching Pokémon and just wandering. Ran into one of my students who was out walking her dog, and then an into a Dad at the grocery store on the way home. I think this will happen quite often now that I'm living closer to school. Bought the ingredients for Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls. I'll let you know how it goes!
