Another weekend come and gone like the wind.
I'll be honest, this weekend wasn't fabulous BUT it ended better than it started so I will take it. General frustrations and emotions got the best of me a few times, which just made everything else seem that much harder. No point in sugar coating it all, but like I said....I snapped out of it and ended the weekend on a much better note.
Friday: Work, Lunch with Mom, more work, and errands. 4 mile run fueled by frustration.
Saturday: Airport 5k, 40 mile ride, dinner with John's family.
Sunday: out the door by 4:30 AM to head to 'Cuse to cheer at Ironman 70.3 Syracuse, time with John relaxing when I got home
*Great to see my mom for lunch on Friday, much needed!
*Did well at the Airport 5k, closer to my PR! Recap later this week.
*I got a 40 mile ride in, super hot but I did it.
(Also tested out my new +Saucony tri-top and it was perfect fit and comfy!)
*On said 40 mile ride, it was my first time clipping in~ no falls(yet).
*I got LUCKY and didn't lose anything out of my bike pack...after realizing around mile 14 that I had left it open....with my car key, money, license, spare tube, and bike tools.
*Dinner and quality time with John's family was a lot of fun Saturday night. Good food, good company and good conversations :)
*Cheering at IM 70.3 Cuse was serious inspiration/motivation boost (more on this tomorrow)
*Got to spend the day with good friends yesterday who I don't see often. Was spend the day with Debbie while her hubby, and our other friends were racing.
*Yesterday was 41 years since Title IX was passed. As some who benefited from this as a HS and college athlete, this makes me happy to see women's sports getting more recognition!
*We bought a juicer! I'm excited to have one in the house now so I can do it more often!
*My emotions and frustrations got the best of me this weekend...multiple times. I felt like a toddler having meltdowns.
*Almost got taken out by a construction truck on my ride Saturday (extremely close), this triggered one of the above meltdowns: It wasn't pretty.
*This heat has been brutal, dehydration, exhaustion and sunburn are all in effect.
*I think my Garmin Forerunner 405 is on it's last leg. The strap is partially broken, and it barely holds a charge anymore :(
*Friday night I roasted a TON of veggies for the weekend.
*Friday night treat for myself? Adult version of cookies and milk.
*I wish I had taken a photo of Saturday's meal with John's family: BBQ Chicken, shrimp, pasta salad, salad, quinoa, with chocolate covered strawberries and Wegmans Ultimate Chocolate Cake for dessert!
*Extreme heat called for ice cream this weekend: multiple times.
*Our first batch of juice from our new juicer was a success, yummy and healthy!
What did you do this weekend?
When was the last time you really let your emotions get the best of you? (We all do it, that is life!)
Do you have a juicer? Any recipes I MUST try?
