We checked out the weather (have I mentioned that I look at a weather app at least once a day??), rain was forecasted for Monday. Of course that basically means it might or might not rain just like any other day. We planned to run Tuesday so I got up & did a weight workout. Normally, I do upper body & then I throw in some leg lifts to try & strengthen my thighs to prevent runners knee & other assorted running injuries. I've been doing those for a few weeks so I added some ankle weights. Our friend that's the former athletic trainer suggested that. As it turned out I was ready for work early so I had time to stop for this
I may or may not have mentioned that Dean & I attempted to eat at Louisiana Lagniappe Wednesday. This is a very nice restaurant & they also have locations in Orange Beach & somewhere else. Florida maybe? Anyway, awhile back I bought a Groupon. It can only be used Mon.-Thurs. which is no biggie. When we got there last week we had to park across the street & there was an hour wait. It was 6:10 when we got there. Sorry, but I was starving,. So we left. We decided that we needed to be there when the doors open at 5:30 & it wouldn't be a problem. I know that's early for a lot of people but we generally eat around 6:00. Since the restaurant is close to my office we just met at the restaurant. I got there before Dean at about 5:20. They'd opened the doors already & told me it would be a 10-15 minute wait. You've got to be kidding! Not that that's a long time but they just opened. She said there were a lot of people waiting outside so they opened a little early & seated those people. Once we were seated I wasn't sure what I wanted. I always get the same thing but I wanted to try something different. I went with a cup of seafood gumbo that was DELICIOUS and the Oysters Lagniappe.
This morning Cindy & I ran. We did 4 miles in 44 minutes. That's not as good as I did Saturday but I've said it before, I'm slower at 5:00 am for whatever reason. It was hot & humid too. I guess one day we'll have some cool mornings. Are you wondering what the 254 title means?
I discovered another little fun thing about my job today. There was a monsoon a few hours ago & the geese were out. I didn't know there were geese. Apparently, they live in the nearby lake. They must have been confused by all the rain because they were roaming the streets. I could see them from my office window. It was hilarious when they were loitering in the street & the cars couldn't get past them & were blowing their horns. The geese were completely oblivious. It was like they owned the road.
Hope y'all are having a good week!
