I went through my Welsh lessons relatively well, though there have been some changes to what the lesson has taught. A good friend of mine is from north Wales and disagreed pretty strongly with a structure, so I had made a conscious effort to say it differently when listening to the lesson. Other than that, it went pretty well.
Beta reading also went well, in that I did what I was supposed to and got one chapter of each manuscript all done. I sent off one chapter to one author... and didn't do the same for the other. I'm just going to send his edits all in one block. There actually aren't that many so far.
This is nothing surprising. I have managed this since I started Beta Reading properly. What was really awesome was that I managed to get back to writing Daughters of Britain and I did awesome... If I do say so myself. By awesome, I mean that I managed to get my daily word count goal. I wrote two thousand words yesterday. Whether they're a good two thousand words is another story, but it doesn't matter! It's a first draft! They're always shit!
So I'm pretty pleased with myself, writing wise. I do hope that I'll be able to replicate it today.
But goodness I feel busy for the first time in ages. Like, stressful busy. It's probably a good thing, really. It'll keep me on my toes and give me zero excuses for goofing off.
Keeping up with the theme of the day, I went to training with heaps of energy, and I did pretty well. My evening run wasn't so good, as my lungs are still not functioning at fully capacity. Still, I ran the entire "mission" of Zombie's Run (for those who know, it was Holding Out for a Hero mission from season two) without stopping, and I even managed a fast lap with a sprint at the end. I was very slow, however, and didn't even hit the four kilometre mark. Oh well. I can't always be great.
Tonight is my first night back at weight training in two weeks (assuming J.K. is in tonight. He might not be). I ache a little from yesterday, so we'll see how that goes. I hope I haven't taken any backwards steps due to my time off. I was so close to a pull up last time!
Everything is back to routine, and so is bound to be incredibly boring to read about. I'll try and come up with something more interesting for tomorrow's blog post. Until then, have fun!
