A Great Weekend

Monday, September 12, 2011

Saturday morning, I woke up and got ready to do my 4 mile run. As I walked outside, my DH came back from his bike ride, so he decided to ride with me while I ran. Well, that didn't go very well for him. He was bored and couldn't imagine doing this pace for 4 miles. He rode with me for 2 blocks and then turned around. I got back home and was amazed at my time: 40:14 for 4.06 miles. I'm pretty impressed with myself. Got home, showered and got ready to take my DD to Opening Ceremonies for soccer. Here are some pics of the day:

Running through the balloons with their banner

Defending the goal. That's what happens when you're a lefty!!

High fiving the other team. Notice my DD's jersey #: 3. Same as her brother's when he played baseball in high school. She was excited to get it!!

Her team won, 2-1. Unfortunately, she had to play her first game against of her very good friends. That's life!! It was a very long day. After the game, went home and got ready to watch the USC football game. Thank goodness they pulled it off and won their second. DH wanted to check out a new store that opened up, Sprouts Farmers Market. We spent way too much money!!

Sunday, woke up and got ready for a bike ride. Met my friend at her house at 8:00am and off we went to meet up with another friend. 3 hours and 10 minutes later (39 miles), I got a flat. Since we were so close to home, I decided to call DH to come and get me. Don't know how to change a tire yet & my friend was being lazy!! Got home, showered, ate some lunch and then ran to do some errands. Took DD and her friend swimming and then, she had a tennis lesson. Another very long day. All in all, it was a great weekend.

Monday morning, after I took the kids to school, I had to get my run in. So, off I went. I felt like I was going so slow. Wanted to stop so many times, but, just couldn't, especially when I was running through the college campus. Had to show up those college kids. Got back to the house and totally amazed myself: ran 4.05 miles in 39:22. That is amazing for me. I am so stoked. Wednesday, I have to up my mileage, so we'll see how that goes. I'll keep you posted.

Now, I have to give my DD dinner and then we are off to soccer practice. 1 1/2 - 2 hours of just sitting there is no fun for me. I'm praying that my friend comes, too. If not, I'll bring some girl scout/PTA stuff to do. Fun, fun!!

Eating so far has been good. Official weigh in for myself is tomorrow morning. I'm hoping to at least stay the same.

Until then-
