It’s Monday, so I’m linking up with Tara for another edition of Weekend Update! This was my super long, four-day weekend! It’s not quite as great as it sounds due to me having a cold/flu the entire time but hey, I would much rather be sick now than next week while I’m in Paris!
I got up for work for work and discovered that I was ill. My throat hurt so bad that it was difficult to talk. I sucked it up and went to work, because that’s what you do when you work in the food service industry. It makes perfect sense, I know.
Later, I got in my 5 mile run at Fleet Feet. We did a slightly faster pace than we have been doing and I didn’t feel horrible despite being sick. Maybe that speed work is already making a difference?
This was a rest day for me anyway so I took that pretty seriously. I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning and other than that didn’t do much for the remainder of the day.
I got up at 4:30 to give my dog his meds and decided to stay up. I enjoyed some coffee and read blogs until the sun came up so that I could go for a run. Considering that I’ve never really been a morning person, it continues to amaze me how I voluntarily get up so early to go for a run. I didn’t exactly have a goal in mind for this run since I was sick, so I just went with how I felt. I ended up running 10 miles @ 9:10 pace. I felt surprisingly good and I might have been able to keep going but I needed to get home so my husband could go get the oil changed in his car. I think perhaps I should have worn gloves. The temperature said 50 but it felt much cooler to me which was fine except for my hands. The last few miles I was having a hard time using them because they were numb.
I went to OTF in the morning and got a pretty good calorie burn on. Then I went home and made a yummy breakfast smoothie. My husband got me a large box of mangoes from Sam’s club so I’ve been enjoying them in my smoothies lately.
Happy Memorial Day!
OTF in the morning. Then later we went to Toys “R” Us to pick up a water table for Haylie. She enjoyed playing with one the previous day at the party so we thought that it would be a good investment. We also had gift cards from her birthday party last year to use up, so it worked out perfectly. We ended up paying a whole dollar for the water table!
Did you do anything fun this weekend? Do you have any exciting trips coming up this summer?
