I love long weekends. Friday morning I took Sophie for a run in the running stroller. She really wanted to go -- even though Dad was home and she could have stayed with him and watched Phineas and Ferb -- and then about a mile in was ready to turn around a go home. So only a short two mile run for Friday. I spent the rest of the day cleaning, doing my monthly billing for the office, and getting some work done.
Saturday morning my running partner Jim and I went for a 41 mile bike ride. Do you ever drive on certain roads and think gee I really would like to ride my bike on this smooth road? There is a road around my house that I have thought that about all summer, so we finally decided to take that route. It was a beautiful morning and we had a great ride. I spent the rest of Saturday helping my mom shampoo her carpets. Between the bike ride and the carpet cleaning, I was wiped out and was in bed by about 9:30.
Sunday, I got a 10 mile run in before our annual Labor Day weekend golf tournament. I was cursing the wind (and farm tractors) during the run, but overall it was good. It ended up being a chilly day, so I rocked the compression socks under the jeans for golf all day. They kept me warm AND made my muscles feel good! Eighteen holes of golf later and I was ready for bed by 9:30 again.
Yesterday, my mom, sister, mother-in-law, Sophie and I went to the State Fair. Maneuvering a stroller through the throngs of fairgoers was enough of a workout for me. Luckily I refueled with a giant pretzel, some funnel cake fries, cheese curds, and ice cream.
It was torture getting out the door of work/daycare this morning, but I'm looking forward to a lunch time bike ride and kettlebells tonight.
