This last weekend was easy :)
The weather cooled off a bit and my run on Saturday morning was in a word amazing. I ran 8 miles but felt like I could have gone forever. I am still running at a pretty slow pace (around 10 min mile) but that is just fine with me. Eventually I am going to get sick of the same route I take but this Saturday when running next to the Hudson was so peaceful and refreshing. A lot of it has to do with the weather. If it was 10 degrees hotter or humid I would be singing a completely different tone.
This weekend I am supposed to do 8 but it seems that I'm moving one more mile than my training schedule each weekend so I'm going to go for 9 :)
After the run, B and I relaxed around the apartment and then we went down to my Dad's house for dinner. The traffic was horrible :( I thought maybe if we left in the later afternoon there would be less traffic going down the shore and maybe there was but there definitely still was a lot of traffic. Dinner consisted of summer veggies on the grill and grilled chicken followed by watermelon. After dinner my Dad, B and I went for a long bike ride. About two minutes in I realized my bike had a flat! The bike ride was miserable!!! I was dying! We stayed for an hour after the ride to look through pictures of my Dad and my step mom's trip to Norway. It was an early bedtime for B and I for sure.
Sunday B left to visit his friend in Mass for two days so I was left to my own devices, which means I watched movies all day ha! I am lazy by nature my friends! I did meet up for my girlfriend for an early dinner which was really nice and I called it a day early again.
One thing I haven't mentioned is B is currently unemployed :( Although I put a sad face, I'm not sad. It is absolutely going to be the best thing for him and us. He was working at a place that was killing him slowly, so I was actually happy when they downsized. I know I may be feeling different later on but we are one of the lucky ones where our responsibilities are minimal right now and he already has a bunch of prospects. Keeping the positive outlook for a while! I must say though a girl can definitely get used to coming home to great meals, clean apt and laundry done! B is definitely not the type of guy who likes to just waste time so when he is not searching for a job, he is keeping busy which means doing everything around the apartment! I am really loving it ha!
Ok....back to the grind!
