Yesterday I didn’t want to accept the fact that it was actually Monday so I’m writing my weekend recap post on Tuesday….
Friday night I did 4 mi on the treadmill @ 8:40 pace. I usually don’t run on Fridays, but we didn’t have any plans so we just decided to spend our Friday night at the gym. For dinner I made spinach artichoke ravioli (recipe from The Cooking Jar).
On Saturday morning I refused to run on the treadmill, so I woke up way too early and headed to the lake for a run. I forgot my headphones and was running by myself, so I knew it was not going to be fun. Thankfully after about 2.5 miles I ran into my dad and Kara (another way faster than me running friend) and finished up with them. I ended up with a slow 7 miles @ 9:07 pace. I felt like I was running wayyyyy faster, but I guess that’s what the heat does to you.
On Saturday we went to visit with Thomas’s parents since we weren’t going to be able to see them on Father’s Day and went to his dad’s jewelry store to pick out Thomas’s wedding band. Saturday night we met up with Sarah, Stephanie and her husband Scott for dinner.
…and then Sarah, Thomas and I decided to go out for the night to meet up with some other friends.
On Sunday we went over to my parent’s house to see my dad for Father’s Day. My brothers and I got him some Jaybird Bluebud X Wireless headphones for running. I’m interested to see how he likes them because I’ve been wanting a pair myself, but I’m soooo particular about how my running headphones fit my ears and I’ve only ever been able to keep Skull Candy headphones in my ears while I run.
Monday night was a rest day. We met up with Dara and Matt, our good friends who were with us the night we got engaged. We actually went back to the same restaurant where it all happened!
