Sunday Blues

Posted Aug 01 2010 2:49pm

Sunday already? Why do the weekdays have to drag by, but the weekends are over before you can even blink? It doesn’t seem fair to me :(

At least I had a great weekend with my parents! We didn’t really do anything fun or exciting, but we had a great time enjoying each others company and just running errands. I felt guilty dragging them around all weekend to do the things I needed to get done, but I don’t think it really bothered them. I think they really just wanted to spend time with me, and we did plenty of that for sure.

Since they had to leave early this afternoon, I woke up at the butt crack of dawn to get my run in before they left (and attempt to beat the heat). I was done running by 7:15, so we had the whole morning to hang out and eat pancakes ;)

Time: 1:18

Distance: 9.91 miles

Average Pace: 7:54 per mile

My attempt to beat the heat failed miserably. The heat index was in the 90′s at 6 AM! What is up with that? The humidity didn’t help at all either.

I was “suppose” to do my long run today, but that didn’t happen since my parents were in town and I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. The beauty about making my own training schedule is that I can make it by a week by week basis. Too busy for a long run on the weekend? No problem. I can do it Monday. I am a person who hates being tied down to a schedule, so this works for me. I know there are some people that need to have a schedule to and they really rely on it, but I am the complete opposite. You just have to do what works for you.

Do you like having a schedule or do you thrive on “winging it”?

Am I the only one that is suffering from the Sunday blues?

At least I had a good meal tonight! that bad bay was RARE tonight! Just how I like it ;)

Instead of my normal grass fed beef, I used grass fed Bison. I think this might be a new staple in my diet! They are very similar, but I actually like that “gamey” taste you get from Bison. It is nice to mix things up every once an awhile. You can read about the health benefits of it here .

What was the highlight of your weekend?

Long run tomorrow! I can’t wait!
