As much as I love races, I’ve enjoyed having some freedom this weekend – in particular, sleeping in! (Since when is 8am sleeping in?)
On Saturday morning someone from my marathon group needed company for 16K (10 miles), so I joined him for a rainy run. He was struggling and we took a lot of walk breaks, but it was still nice to have the company. For the rest of the day, hubby and I cleaned the house, did some shopping and just hung out. It was kind of nice going to bed knowing that we didn’t have to get up at 5am on Sunday.
Yesterday morning I headed out for a speedier 5K. It was sunny and looked beautiful out, but I got a shock when I stopped outside to discover that it was only 7C (44F) and extremely windy. In the afternoon we headed to my aunt and uncle’s place in the country for a BBQ and bonfire and spend most of the afternoon outside despite the cold and wind.
Today we’re doing some gardening (after scoring a ton of plants from my aunt yesterday!) before having my in-laws over for a BBQ of our own this afternoon. It should be a nice way to wrap up the long weekend.
I hope everyone else had a good one! I’ll be catching up soon.
