Freedom Weekend

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.

  1. the weather was the same here this weekend. warm but rainy saturday, and chilly on sunday! but, at least the sun was out. i feel you on that “sleeping in”. it’s physically impossible (lately) for me to sleep later than 8-ish. šŸ˜¦ glad you had a good weekend and were able to get some nice runs in.

  2. enjoy the day off!! It is nice to sleep in but it stinks when you still wake upat 8am! I have had those mornings…usually the day after a track meet. Something about being so exhausted from competing dpesn’t allow me to sleep!

  3. Sounds like a nice race-free weekend! It’s funny that as far apart as we are, it sounds like we had similar weekend weather. Brrrr!

  4. It’s definitely nice to take the “race” pressure off every now and then. sounds like a great non-Racing, but still-Running weekend šŸ™‚
