Another day of dreary rainy weather! It's the kind of day that makes me want to crawl under my desk and take a nap. However, I've been swamped at work, so that's not happening. Whatever. It makes the day go faster.
The weekend was a bit of a blur. Friday I fit in the 45 minute Si6 workout after the kiddo was in bed and then finished up the reading for my Marketing class.
Saturday, I was in class all day. I have to admit I was a bit envious of those out there running Surfide or the P2P 5-miler! After class, I did the grocery shopping before heading home. Did you know that the Kroger on W. Gray has live music and wine samples on Saturday evenings? :-) At home, I managed to squeeze in the 25 minute Si6 workout, before watching Talledega Nights with the hubby. I like Will Farrell movies. In fact, Old School is one of my favorites, but for some reason I fell asleep about 1/2 way through.
Sunday, I met Kay at the park at 7 and managed to get in 2 loops around the park. As always, Kay kept my butt going at a pretty speedy pace. I was huffing and puffing, Kay wasn't. Overall, it felt great to push it a bit. I was still able to hold a conversation, but it wasn't exactly easy. Later, the kiddo and I went to play group and then met up with some friends from my high school days and their kiddos for lunch. After hanging out at home for a few hours, I had a "Working Moms Meet-Up" at the Daily Grind. It was my 1st time there and I liked it. My coffee was great and it was kind of quiet. It would be a great place to study...much better than trying to think over all the loud music at Starbucks. The hubby was nice enough to put the kiddo to bed and I ended my day by watching the Grammy's for the 1st time in years. I loved all the performances, especially JT's! However, I could have done without the Dixie Chicks. I don't know, I used to love'em, but now they (okay, Natalie) just gets on my nerves. Sorry. Through most of the show, the hubby was asking, "Who's that?" Actually, at times I didn't know either. Sounds like a sure sign that we're both getting old.
Oh, and 1 week 'till Austin! I am ready to get there and get this one done. But, it's not the end of training for me. I'm planning to run Lucky Trails next month. Hell, I have to have something to keep me motivated to run. Sad, but true.
