We had a lovely weekend, with some busy and lots of relaxing. I had five whole days of sleeping in! (Granted, sleeping in means 8am these days, but still…) It’s always a little rough getting back to normal mornings. Yawn!
I continued with Elf4Health and successfully completed all of last week’s challenges. Perhaps the most satisfying was removing myself from mailing lists. It was so freeing to hit “unsubscribe”. I carried this over to blog reading as well and finally got rid of those blogs I always skipped in my reader. Maybe I’ll have more time to comment on blogs I love if I stop wasting time on the ones that make me go “meh”.
The hardest challenge this week will be to work out with a buddy. I need to do it early in the week so my legs are rested for my race this weekend. Maybe this will actually get me to run with the ladies of MRTT instead of just socialize with them.
I’ve never done this in the past. My body likes its rest days. But I’ve decided to go for it. I need to get primed to start training for Riverboat, so my legs need to get used to running tired. I am taking their “one mile rest days” to heart though and running those runs super slow and easy on the treadmill. So far so good!
I got some good deals this weekend. I may have bought a bunch of nuun and three running skirts. Good thing I got Beer Geek’s holiday shopping done for him. I may or may not take advantage of some of the below. Got any deals you can share with us?
