The sun has been shining for almost three whole days now! Finally it seems as if spring is here to stay!
This past weekend was so much fun so I will recap!
Friday night Mike and I drove up to West Park in Cleveland to hang with some friends. After enjoying drinks and munchies we eventually ended up at a club called “Stir”, where there was quite the array of people. Most of the time we just sat and laughed while people watching. The “dj” would play a song and then act like he was the artist by mouthing the words and fake playing a guitar so naturally we made Jill ask him for a picture with her…
They also had a band playing so we all got up and danced to, “Living on a Prayer”!!!
Mike and I slept in and laid around the house most of the day. We spent Saturday afternoon over at Mike’s brothers house celebrating Mother’s Day with his mom. I don’t have any pictures because I left my camera at home (fail) :(!!!!
I woke up to BEAUTIFUL weather for my weekly long run with Team Challenge. I was SO anxious though:(! After feeling like death after my 90 minute long run last Sunday and having a horrible week of running I was not looking forward to the 110 minute run planned yesterday. I hydrated like crazy Saturday and woke up an hour earlier than usual yesterday. I also added a half of a banana with my peanut butter toast. My entire drive to the run my stomach hurt because I was so anxious about having issues.
We had a guest speaker before our run, she just ran the Boston Marathon after trying to qualify 7 times!!! Her story was very inspiring but the more we stood there and listened to everyone talk the more I anxious I became. I forgot my gel to eat in the middle of the run and right when we started my Garmin watched died. I haven’t run without my watch in over a year and a half! So the start of the run was very difficult. But the more we ran the better it became. I did stop to walk 4 times but for only 1 minute each time so I ended up running a total of 106 minutes. So I figured I got in a 10.25 mile run! My stomach did OK, much MUCH better than last week so I’m going to stay positive and stick with the changes I made this week!
I got home after my run and took a nice LONG shower and then my hubby took me out to delicious lunch at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Akron. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and only could stomach a little less than half of it but it was SO good, plus I ate my weight in bread!
After lunch we cruised around and then ended up taking Scooby to go get ice cream as a little treat! It was so nice out and so nice to spend a little one on one time with Mike, it was a perfect Sunday!
Later today I am heading to my parents. I have to work close to their house tomorrow, so I’m excited to see my mom and what the flowers look like that I sent her for Mother’s Day last Friday!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and mother’s day!
