Happy Monday! And Merry Frickin' Christmas! It snowed this weekend. Like 3 inches snowed. It melted, but it's May for goodness sakes!
Friday night I got in my miles! I was proud of myself because I almost decided to go home without going to the gym first...I talked myself into it, though, and got in 3.5 miles!
I had a pretty productive Saturday and Sunday, but not in the way of exercising. On Saturday, my mom and I went to the greenhouse that my in-laws run and worked on planting my wedding flowers. It went well, but because the weather is so crappy, the greenhouse is much more full than it normally is this time of year. We had to really work hard to find a spot for all of my flowers!
After a day of planting, Dustin and I went out to dinner with my parents and aunt and uncle at our local Mexican restaurant. Good food and great conversation was had, and a Negra Modelo might have been consumed. It was totally worth it! We then went to our friend's house for more beer and conversation, then travelled home (I stopped at my first beer, so I was DD) around ten. After a few miles, I drove through the WORST snow storm I have EVER been in. It only lasted about 4 miles, but when you're driving about 15 mph, searching for reflectors on the side of the road, it seems like forever! Needless to say, I'm ready for summer to get here! NOW!
Yesterday we woke up to snow, but it quickly melted off and actually turned out to be a pretty nice day! I got the house cleaned in the morning and in the afternoon we set out to work on trimming the trees in the orchard...again. We started this project a few weeks ago, but there are so many trees (all of which are 100+ years old and haven't been trimmed in at least 40+ years) that it is taking us forever! We enlisted the help of our friends and got most of it done!
I was supposed to get in my long run yesterday, but it didn't happen. I'm swapping it today since today's workout is stretch & strengthen. I'm using yesterday's tree trimming project as my strengthen because I hauled heavy limbs all day! After work I'll get in my mileage and be caught up again. I have a feeling my whole training plan is going to work this way...trading days so I can get in the right mileage. I hope it works out for me!
Wish me luck on my 4 miles tonight! It doesn't sound long but my motivation is lagging today. If all goes well I'm going to add in another half mile or mile...
