Busy Busy Thursday

It's the weekend here, and I am super excited to see the weekend after a super busy week. We have a lot on our schedule for the weekend, so it should be interesting to see how it all pans out.

I will start by saying that today is a popular day to be born. A very Happy Birthday to my little brother Richard and to Jesse! July Birthday's are the best ;)

Yesterday was my last easy run for the week, I had 6 miles on the schedule, but when the alarm went off at 5am I knew there was no way I was getting up. My calves and shins were so tight and my knees were stiff from the speedwork from Wednesday, so I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Since yesterday was a late day for me, I ventured out for my run about 8am, not my smartest idea, but I figured I didn't have to kill it. Even though my legs seemed to warm up to the run suprisingly quickly, my head was just not in it. The temps didnt really bother me, I just felt like I was on auto-pilot and that was not enjoyable for me.

I cut the run short and did 4.1 miles in 37 minutes, and actually ended up running the 2 I missed this morning on my rest day because I wasn't feeling very restful ;)

Last night after all my other appointments I ventured over to Casa Colston to check out their newest addition and celebrate another summer Birthday

The outdoor bar is the newest addition to the Colston house, and made for a fun evening last night :)

Due to the above mentioned outing, I got home quite late last night and am dragging a bit today. I am going to conserve my energy as much as possible today, I am hoping to get in 12 very quick early miles tomorrow before we get our busy weekend started!


  1. outdoor bar? FUN!

  2. Umm, that bar looks amazing. I'm so jealous!
