I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! The weather was truly amazing and I am sad to see it leave us with two rainy days in a row.
Actually, I will take that rain so it will wash away all this pollen! My allergies are killing me slowly.
Today is my Thursday at work and I couldn’t be happier. I have not really taken a day off from work this year yet and I am going full force Wed-Friday. The computer will stay off, the phone on silent, no emails, nothing. I usually work through my vacations, but not this one. I just can’t.
So that means you are in for a random post this morning. You love random posts, stop.
First order of business….Matt bought a bike! Now I have someone to ride with and we can plan actual long rides around town. Last Thursday was my first day back on the bike to commute to and from work. At the end of the day, I logged 9 miles with going to/from work and then riding to dinner. I missed my run from being so exhausted, but to me it is still cardio without the impact. I just cannot make a it habit of missing runs.
Speaking of running…..I had two AMAZING runs last week. I have been good about rolling out my legs the night before and just before my runs and it has helped significantly with the calf tightness. I can tell my body is trying to get into the swing of running and now I just have to fight all this lactic acid in my body. A good soaking is in order! The feet are also doing much better than I expected. My longest run to date is 4 miles (not the best four) and my feet have slight soreness a few hours after the run.
This week…..With my three (really five) days off, I have a ton to accomplish around the house/running. This weekend is my first 5k since coming off the disabled list, so I want to be ready. I want to run half without stopping. Did you hear that calves?
Painting…..I bought a wall stencil. I also bought dark paint for said stencil. Im nervous! Stay tuned
Our garden….it is all planted and now we wait. I have a feeling I planted a few of our veggies incorrectly, but this year we are looking at it as a “what did we do right/wrong?” year.
This past weekend…..I spent way too much money. I was in desperate need of clothes, so I threw some money aside to buy a semi new wardrobe. Of course, I went over. I also took the pup over to my parents house so he could play with their dogs. I felt bad because this past week I did not have time to take him on a dedicated walk and he is no longer running with me. Rigsby had so much fun with the other dogs that he fell asleep sitting up on the car ride home.
Eating out….we also ate out too much this weekend. My goal is to cut back on doing that, but right now we are in need of groceries and friends were here yesterday. After dinner we decided to get a walk in across the street from the restaurant at the cemetery across the street. Don’t worry, it is actually a historic site and they welcome people to come in and take a tour. (Not that I would care, I love a good ghost hunt!)
