Do you feel refreshed from the long weekend? Mine was extra long (no classes on Friday), and I took full advantage of it.
AR came in late on Friday night, so I cooked a yummy dinner of individual chicken pot pies (recipe here!) before he got home. I curled up on the couch with a glade of wine, my pot pie, and the movie Bride Wars.
Yes, you may think this sounds like a perfect fall evening, but I am embracing September as much as possible.
On Saturday morning, AR and I went to the gym for a 6 miler at an 8:30 pace. I, of course, got a bloody nose at around mile 5.5 and walked it in while holding a kleenex. About 5 different nurses got off their machines to ask if I was okay. I looked pretty pathetic.
We walked another mile to Bantam & Biddy for brunch and then walked home. We were gearing up for a night of FOOTBALL and ready to watch LSU beat Wisconsin.
We cooked some tailgate classics: chicken sausage, watermelon, and homemade sweet potato fries. I confess, I fell asleep at half time because LSU was losing and it was like 11pm. Of course, I missed all of the good parts. At least LSU won!!
AR and I had already decided to push our long run to Monday because of the holiday, so we made breakfast, cleaned the apartment, and went to a local coffee shop to study.
|turkey bacon, fried egg, and a mug of grits!|
|Check out that beautiful almond milk cafe au lait!|
We did 12 miles on Monday morning. It was hot as could be. I was sweating buckets and the weather report said that it was 84% humidity. Yep, Atlanta marathon training is a real joy. I keep thinking the weather will get cooler and it doesn't :(
We met friends for brunch, took a walk around West Midtown, and then went furniture shopping. I am now the proud owner of this new coffee table!!!
How gorgeous is it? We picked it up at West Elm and I love how it looks in my living room with our new couch we bought a few months ago. I am not shopping for a large, dark brown tray to put on top. Suggestions on where to look?
And of course, my weekend wouldn't be complete without froyo: chocolate hazelnut topped with berries. Yum.
Other runs this week:
T- 5 miles
W- 5 miles
Th - 4 miles
F - rest
This week is going to be a bit rough - I have a 20 miler on Sunday and we are expecting temperatures well into the 90*s. AR and I have already promised to start at like 5am... lets hope we make it!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
