Old (Green) Faithful
Hi there! Happy (late start) Saturday!
So, I wasn’t able to sign up for the race, unfortunately. Well, I was, but I would have had to drive to the registration last night in a storm, drive back, then back again this morning. Call me lazy. There’s always next year! However, I see a race in my near future, because not doing Steamboat kind of makes me feel like a bum. In place of the race, I went to Group Power this morning!
But let’s back up.
To yesterday morning!
I had the whole day off. My one client called off, and I didn’t have to go to the BIC (Big Insurance Company aka office job, for new readers:) ) My day started out fabulously – with a breakfast cookie.
I was all out of my Jay Robb protein powder, so I used the Vega Shake and Go Vanilla Almondilla flavor, and it was actually quite good, but it makes it look not as pretty.
While this digested, I worked on some training plans and worked on my new website (I hope to tell you guys about it soon!)
Finally around 9:30, when it was good and hot, I went for a run. Gosh it was such a horrible run. My legs felt like lead, I felt extremely dehydrated, and it was HOT. However, I promised myself I’d go at least 3.1 miles.
Soooo I ran just that, and not a tenth of a mile more.
For it, I got a treat!
Iced coffee! The trick is to put the ice in first, then the milk, and then the coffee – to make it pretty-like.
For my aunt’s birthday a few months back, I got her a free training session. We decided yesterday would be the day for me to head on over there. Since it was a one time thang, I just wrote up a plan that she can do on her own.
She lives about 45 minutes away, so I packed up the usual road trip essentials.
Green monster + water.
See how full this green monster is?! Well, sometimes when it gets to full, I have some spillage.
This time, it looked like a Green Old Faithful!
The training session went well, and she was sweatin’ buckets by the end. I didn’t expect anything less 😀 thanks for being such a great sport, Auntie Kimmie 😀 My aunt and uncle have a sweet pool in the backyard, but unfortunately, storm clouds were rolling in, so after about an hour of chit chat, I headed home…
..and to the baseball field!
Top secret father’s day present 😉
When Shane got home for the day, we both were hankering for a rita and some Mexican food like none other.
Our hankerings were qualmed.
We went to the usual place…
And ordered the usual meal…
A trip to the video store ensued, and when home we watched…
It’s Complicated!! Super cute movie.
Well today is a HOT and sunny one, and there will be some swimming in my forecast for sure today! I hope you all enjoy your Saturday 😀
*Take one to-do on your to-do list for today that isn’t urgent, cross it off, and replace it with some
thing FUN or RELAXING*
