Turning Point Twelve
Hey all! Happy Saturday! Figured I’d stop in for a quickie Saturday post.
It’s been a great weekend so far! After work last night, Shane and I headed to the dog park with Niko, and then to grab some groceries. Sticking to my Running Around (on) a Budget challenge, I succeeded in spending less than $50 per week.
Worth it when you think of it as getting an extra $100-$150 income each week.
When we got home, it was grillin’ time!
Veggie burger w/ avocado + ketchup, texas toast, steamed brussels sprouts, spinach and shroom salad.
Mmm…salty and peppery.
After we finished eating, we had a few friends over for a beer and some company. Niko also had one of her BFF’s over:
Aww, Niko and Arizona. Zoni ate all of Niko’s food hehe
Niko didn’t mind!
I ended up going to bed fairly early, because I had a BIG morning ahead of me – a 12 mile run!
I’m happy to report it was a WONDERFUL run!! The past two long runs have been very, very difficult, and I’ve had to stop and walk several times. Well, today, I took my own advice about getting through a tough run, and I didn’t have to take one walking break! My average pace was 9:41, and I finished in 1:55:51.
Some pretty pictures along the way:
I think this long run is a turning point in my training. I’m gonna dominate that half marathon (in two weeks!!)
I immediately showered and refueled:
And then was off to train a couple clients. By then end of that, I was BEAT.
A Kombucha was in order, obviously.
(and a Fat Tire was in order for the hubski, apparently ;))
Spent some time in the backyard just chattin’ it up:
Then got to baking some birthday goodies!
Pecan, cranberry, coconut, chocolate clusters from Vive le Vegan.
I checked, and they weren’t poisonous.
And finally just got done rolling around on the ground and watching Big Band Theory:
I swoon for you, oh foam roller. Shane makes fun of the sounds & faces I make while using this contraption LOL
Well I gotta get off of the computer. We have two birthday parties to go to tonight, and I gotta go get ready! Should be a great time 😀
How did you spend your Saturday?
