Happy Friday!! Yesterday was a crazy day and I didn’t get to blog at all! No writing or reading 😦 But…. we won our first kickball game! I was in class until about 4ish yesterday and then hit the gym up to run my 6 mile tempo. Why do my Thursday runs always blow big snot rockets? Does that analogy even make sense? Another failed tempo run. Did I mention that tempo runs are my least favorite run? I can do intervals any day of the week and I don’t mind long runs but tempo runs SUCK! To me, at least. I ended up running 5 out of the 6 miles which doesn’t really sound bad until I mention that they weren’t all in a row. I ran 3 miles then did a NTC workout because I got a cramp and couldn’t go on and then I went back and ran another mile. I did another NTC workout before I ran my last mile. I didn’t feel like doing the 6th and I had to get to kickball.
Yesterday had a heat index of 110 and we were all sweating buckets. But we played GREAT and had so much fun and beer!! We won the game 6-4 against a team that we heard was really good. WIN!!
Everyone decided to go out afterwards to celebrate the game but I was pooped from a long day and a long week. I couldn’t wait to snuggle up in my bed and go to bed. I came home to a beautifully made up bed by the boy which made me so happy. Do you see how he made my bears hug? The white bear is a bear I got for Christmas when I was 3!! He is from 1988. Do not do the math. The other bear is a Steiff bear from Germany that Tim got me last year while he was there for work. The 2 bears are friends 🙂
I also came home to the new Runner’s World which means I did not go straight to bed! I love when I get this in the mail each month. This issue has a whole section on the Olympics and had some great tips. Another surprise I came home to besides a made bed and a magazine was birthday cupcakes!!! My birthday is on Monday and Alyssa bought me cupcakes to enjoy throughout the weekend. Spoiler alert- they are almost gone!
Sorry for all of the pictures but ever since I started blogging, I have gone crazy with taking pictures of everything and that is how i like to document my days.
AND NOW FOR THE EXCITEMENT. Guess what arrived today???
I apologize but you probably won’t be hearing from me for the rest of the night as I play with my new toy! Have a great night and weekend!!
Who has a FR210? Any tips?
