A Year of Living Positively-Day 258

Since I had no classes this morning, I was able to get to the fitness center for a workout this morning and return home for a shower and lunch before returning to campus to meet my next class. I got to the gym later than expected after deciding to send something off at the post office before the workout, so I was in a bit of a hurry to complete the routine. I cut down on some of the stretching and weight pressing, though I stuck to the meat of the routine, doing the full 15 minutes on the bike, 150 skipping jumps and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I finished just before eleven o’clock, which left me with ample time to make it to my class at one o’clock.

I am progressing with the skipping. I now do around 150 jumps, and around 100 of them are straight proper jumps while the rest are the slower bouncy jumps (two jumps between skips). I am proud of that. I hope it strengths my heart and lungs, develops agility, and helps reduce weight by jumping regularly.

I had a few minutes to research bank info. I am trying to find the best way to send the payment on the land. I think I have figured it out.

Right now, I am passing the time before I prepare for my live online Korean class. Actually I am scheduled to teaching a writing class this evening, but I made an announcement stating that tonight’s English class was cancelled so that I could attend the Korean class. I put up signs on the classroom door and my office door, and left a message on the intranet. I do not expect many students to show up as it is the first week of classes before the holiday, and it is raining besides. My notes explained that I intended to hold a full two-hour class next time, which is tomorrow night. We can do introductions, look over the syllabus and do some writing activities tomorrow instead of just meeting for a few minutes for intros tonight.

Yes, an extra long weekend is approaching. Chuseok is a three-day weekend starting this year on Sunday and ending on Tuesday. The employer threw in an extra day’s leave on the Wednesday. It can be a boring time, so I am planning to visit another city.

I want to go to the northeast of South Korea in the finest mountain park area, Soreoksan. There are also beaches. I was just checking the forecasts and the weather is supposed to be fine but not very hot. I reviewed the transportation schedules and I think I will commit to the bus ride. The express bus takes over seven hours. Fortunately, they leave several times a day. I did not succeed in trying to lure anyone else to go with me, so I am heading off solo on Saturday morning. Traffic can be backed up but I do not expect problems on that route, and I should easily be able to get a bus seat as a single passenger.
