I'd call this weekend "active"

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, May 19, 2013

The weather in the early mornings has been perfect for an active lifestyle. Yesterday the group of ladies KALIGIRL refers to as "the biker babes" got together at 8 a.m. (she and I start about 7:30 to get to the starting point by 8), and rode downtown for breakfast / coffee. It was once again a great outing... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was overcast and threatening that it MIGHT rain, so I pieced at the yard with the push-mower, but did it in very small increments, as it's long enough it takes about 3 passes and still leaves some of the stray longer stalks standing. However, I wanted to get at least some of it cut before the rain. I got only about 1/8 to 1/6th of the total yard "trimmed", but it's better than none.

And it *did* rain, overnight. This morning it was cloudy and cooler. I had my long and slow run planned for this morning, and I set out about quarter to 7. I went 10.88 miles in 2:07 and change, and got a little bit of sprinkles in the last mile or so. emoticon

Had a post-run snack, showered and changed and started in on the laundry when the phone rang... SPINNINGJW was looking for company to motivate herself out of the house to "do something active". Well, I'd already done my workout... but on second thought... a workout for her is not really taxing for me, so I agreed and we went for a 45 minute walk on one of the trails she wanted to see. It was shaded, the sun was out by then, so it was a nice balance to my solo run. emoticon emoticon

And now? Had some lunch, and am chilling in the house, finishing up the laundry, and will probably piece some more on the lawn later. We shall see.

Hope my Spark buds are all having a great weekend, too. emoticon
