Morning!Seattle-glad to hear you are recovering from your marathon so well! are you planning any summer races?java-how are you feeling? kicked that sinus infection yet?ou-are you taking any summer classes? snowed-there are good and bad weeks for training. are you taking recovery weeks? I'm sure you are in good shape for your marathon--how many weeks until the race? I am a structural engineer, so bridges and buildings and such. RR: 13 (!!!) on saturday for the first time in a while. I was a little tired bc of a strong headwind the last few miles, but glad i did it. yesterday i ran 4 miles and then we did a 10 mile hike. whew...and still ran 8 miles this morning. NRR: had a good weekend. saturday dbf and i each ran, we cleaned/organized and then ran a bunch of errands saturday afternoon. made dinner and went to bed early. yesterday we headed to nh for some hiking. did a 4700' mtn, with 3400 ish elevation gain. it ended up being 10 miles. FR: pizza and beer tasted so amazing after that hike
RR - Pretty much didn't do any running over the weekend - want to make sure that I recover fully from my marathons! Climbing class on Friday night was great, my coworker did awesome and really enjoyed it. I also took a climbing class on Saturday that was safety oriented and it really boosted my confidence a lot and was great. Can't wait to start to start top roping (climbing taller things while roped in, as opposed to climbing short things with no rope - which is what DBF and I have been doing)! Today is a 3 mi lunch break run, and then climbing after work. DBF and his friend are trying to summit the mountain today, and I am trying not to think about it!
NRR - Had a pretty low key weekend - did a lot of cooking yesterday, so that was good. It was relaxing but somehow went by way too quickly, even though I didn't do all that much! Argh. Hopefully today will go by quickly at work. I am looking forward to a long weekend for 4th of July... got spoiled by the long weekend for memorial day I suppose. I may see DBF tonight if he gets back at a reasonable hour, but if not, will probably just read some and go to bed early!
FR - Thinking toasted turkey and swiss sandwich and tomato soup for dinner - it's such a tasty and yet quick and easy weeknight meal.
RR: Probably a rest day. Nice run Saturday and some tough yoga yesterday.
NRR: Crazy weekend. My sinus infection came back with a vengance last Wednesday night. I was feeling really bad Thursday, so I finally went to a doctor. Turns out that in addition to the sinus infection, both of my ears were infected. Didn't even know that could happen to adults! So, I got a steroid shot and some antibiotics. Luckily I felt better by Saturday. We went to a local amusement park for my company picnic, then to my neices birthday party, and then DH and I went out to dinner for his small business group summer get-together while the boys stayed with the ILs. Yesterday I just went to yoga, ran erands, and took a nap with little b (I may have had a bit too much wine at dinner Saturday night, so I was pretty tired). Tonight is karate and laundry!
FR: Didn't do great this weekend, and it showed on the scale. Back to normal today though. Making pita pizzas tonight.
sjp - Wow!! That is some major running lady! So glad you are better! You certainly earned your pizza and beer!
Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
SJP: you got some good running in and a great hike. sounds like a good weekend for you.
Java: Glad you finally went to the DR. I was wondering if you were going to break down or not. Hope you get to 100% quickly.
Seattle: More awesome days ahead! you are really getting into the climbing. Sounds like fun. Let us know how DBF does with his summit.
RR: Ran 12 K on Saturday. Went pretty well, not as good as when I was in full training but I was happy. It's VERY hilly so before I mentally gave myself permission to walk some hills if needed. Didn't need to, and I finished in 1:01:42, which was within my goal. I was 7th in my AG out of 110 - so not too bad. No run yesterday. Run today but not sure how far, depends on if it's with my daughter or my friend.
NRR: After the race, Ex came over to bring a lawnmower and then he string trimmed part of my yard. I visited with my puppies. Then he came in and talked, talked, talked(in other words he talked I listened). He left when I said I had plans. My plans were of course going to DBF's. Went to DBF's had a nice night. He made me dinner and then we watched "Flight" and cuddled. Sunday I went to pick up younger DD from school and she is home for part of this week. I need to get lots of school work done and my apps/resumes done since I'm heading to Portland for my birthday this Thursday and spending a couple of days with older DD. DS is coming over for dinner tonight.
FR: not too bad. Saturday had fish and some salad for dinner. Sunday had a meatball sandwich with DD for a late lunch and then we walked and had fro yo for dinner. LOL
