Hey kiddos. I hope you’re all having a lazy Sunday morning so far!
I’m not really, but I can pretend, right? It’s all good- I’m getting ready to leave for a little flea shopping adventure. Apparently, my friend Danielle is quite the vulture when it comes to these things. We’ll see if the rumors are true. :)
So before I started getting ready to go, I got up and ran a quick few miles while I had the motivation. Three miles at an 8:15 pace. And I just need to say how awesomely quiet the workout room is at 9:00 on a Sunday morning. This may mean I’m the only crazy person working out at that time, but whatev- a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
Either way, the run was much better than my run yesterday. I did that 6 miles I had planned because it’s my long run of the week. But because of all the sugar and wine I had consumed the night before, I was feeling pretty sluggish. It didn’t show too badly in the time- I had an 8:34 pace (which isn’t too far off), but it was not a “good” run overall. I felt crappy. And just “off”. Bleh.
Either way, I got it in before the Mizzou game yesterday. My guy friend had to cancel last minute, so Mon was willing to go with me to our local Fox and Hound for eats and football. Beer and football go hand in hand.Mon got a salad and diet coke. So the waiter really didn’t know what to do with me when I got my 20 oz beer and cheeseburger. What can I say? We just cancelled each other out.
I think he was even more impressed with how much of it I was actually able to finish.
After watching a Mizzou win (holla’!), we decided to walk around and check out the Running Away Multisport (RAM) store in Deerfield. Mon decided she needed a new pair of running shoes and decided to get her stride analyzed.Turns out she has a pretty level stride, but has been wearing shoes that were just a bit too small (explaining how she easily lost a couple toenails when her workouts started getting more intense).I looked around and ended up leaving with a flyer about an upcoming 5k I may do. Sounds about right.
We’ll see if it fits in the budget.
Oh and the toffee bars were a hit! I took them to Jaime’s housewarming and everyone loved them. Good thing- I was happy to get rid of them all! I loved them- but definitely had my fair share… oops! ;)
Like you may have noticed, my mind is a little scattered because I’m in a bit of a hurry. Off to the flea market adventure!
