did you miss me?
i thoroughly enjoyed my 3 day weekend even though we really didn’t do much. we stayed home friday and saturday night just putzing around the apartment and giving the dogs lots of walks. we went out to eat on saturday to a new-to-us restaurant called roadside. it’s just a couple miles from our apartment and brad had gotten some good recommendations for it.
i had veggie fajitas and brad got the whole rack of ribs.
we had so much food, but managed to eat almost everything except for some of the rice + beans that came with the fajita.
i swear i took pictures of our meals, but they seem to have disappeared. oh well.
brad also surprised me saturday by coming home with a bouquet of flowers completely out of nowhere!
i always tell him how tempted i am to buy flowers at the farmers’ market and he remembered and got these for me!
we headed back to manitowoc on sunday afternoon for a memorial day party at one of our friend’s houses. it involved a keg of beer, lots of pulled pork and delicious food, two adorable babies, lots of bean bag toss & washers, and then card games after we moved it inside.
it was really relaxed and we just had fun hanging out.
yesterday morning, brad and i went out to eat at the golden flame. it’s a restaurant in manitowoc that brad and his friends used to enjoy after a night out or even the next morning. so they have lots of greasy breakfast food. i kept things fairly healthy with an egg-white omelette filled with veggies and a side of potatoes. (didn’t finish that bread…)
brad also got an omelette plus an order of biscuits and gravy! gah. and our bill was $15. so cheap!
we kept things pretty lazy last night too. i took the dogs for a walk and did a quick run and then geared up for today.
now i’m all ready at my desk to face the day!
i’m doing a couple hours of work this morning then i’m volunteering at the garden until 4ish, picking up our csa (!!!), maybe hitting up the de forest farmers’ market, and then coming home to clean our apartment and do a little iin work. you’d think that i had plenty of time to clean this weekend, but somehow it didn’t happen.
today is also my first run of half marathon training! i’ve got 3 miles planned. i’m still debating if i’m going to go out soon after i publish this post, or if i’ll wait until tonight… tough decision!
oh yeah, and one more thing. i’m participating in runner’s world’s summer running streak along with just about every other blogger, apparently!
basically, i’ll run at least one mile every day between yesterday (memorial day) and the 4th of july to equal 38 days of running! since this happened to be a great add-on to my half marathon training, i had to jump on board!
day 1 is in the books & day 2 gets rolled into my 3-mile training run today.
i didn’t really feel like working out last night, but i didn’t want to mess up the streak before it even started, so i grabbed jake and took him out for a 2 mile walk to get my motivation up, and then i switched out the dogs and did a nice & easy mile run with capone!
i’m not sure about this runkeeper app though. it’s confusing me! when i took these pictures, it says 10:30 & 10:31 for my mile, and then as i was saving it, it went down to 10:24. i know that those 6 or 7 seconds don’t really matter, but i don’t understand why they said two different things!
anyone have a garmin they want to get rid of?! i kid! this will work for now. i do have to admit to looking up running watches on amazon though. maybe that will be my reward for completing the 38-day running streak!
whew. ok. sorry for all of the rambles.
i just had a lot to get out after not blogging for a couple days!
