There aren't usually any interesting sights to see on my runs. I run through my subd. & check out which houses are for sale. There's the usual roadkill - armadillos,squirrels & possums but that's about the extent of it. Until Saturday.
Next up was some weed pulling. Seriously, we could employ a gardener & I don't think he'd ever run out of things to do. I honestly believe when we pull one weed, several sprout in its place. It's exhausting. Did I mention we were under a heat advisory? The weed pulling didn't last too long & I got in the pool to cool off. Thank goodness for the pool. After lunch I took a nap.We didn't have any plans for the rest of the day so I didn't have to wake up to get ready for anything. I had a delightful 3 hour nap. That may be my favorite part of half marathon training. I sleep really really good!
Once I woke up it was back in the pool & Dean grilled steaks. One problem with half training is that I'm ALWAYS hungry. Well, that's the case when I'm not training too. Anyway, my most favorite food in the whole world is french fries. I think I could eat them every single day & not get tired of them.
I had them with my steak. YUMMO!
Since we didn't go to Mass Saturday we got up early & went Sunday morning & had breakfast after at Another Broken Egg.
They had a really good latte! I had this egg scramble thing that had veggies, ham & bacon bits in it & a side of grits. It was delicious!!!
We didn't have any plans Sunday either. I may or may not have taken another nap but it was much shorter than 3 hours.
Dean cooked this on the grill
It's a drunk chicken. When I walked in the kitchen & saw this it kinda freaked me out. The first thing I thought of was the Thanksgiving Friends episode that Joey puts the turkey on his head. It was good but still weird.
I had to increase my mileage this week.
4.5 miles on Monday. I've been keeping up with the August 30 Day Challenge I'm participating in & also throwing in a couple of weight workouts.
Wednesday's run. It wasn't quite as hot as Monday & I went a tad faster but I felt sick when I finished. After about 10 minutes I was ok.
Yesterday, we booked our hotel for the half marathon. Now I just have to register for the race itself. I was waiting to make sure I was going to be able to do it & the price doesn't increase for a couple of weeks so I just haven't done it. I did see that there is a 10 mile option so if I don't feel like I'm ready for 13.1 I can do it.
I saw this somewhere yesterday & it made me laugh.
HAHAHA! I think most of us can relate to that right?!
