I Have No Idea

I took the weekend off to eat, I mean recover from that 10 miler. :D Weekends are starting to be busy with soccer and soon Tball. Soon we will be like the rest of the world with numb buns from all the games.

We also have carried on the tradition of my husband's grandparents... Saturday night family meal. It takes some time but we have made it important and I really enjoy it, good food, good wine, good company. I also think it's good for the kids.

Sunday was a little more relaxing, I actually spent more time on the couch in the middle of the day than I have in a long time, just enjoying the Masters. It still involved multiple up and downs with laundry, feeding and showering and refereeing kids, but it was nice. We also went to our Broadway Series Sunday night: Putnam County Spelling Bee.... very enjoyable. Everyone's busy, right?

Today it was 50 degrees and beautiful.
1 - 12:05 - I'm wishing away the whole run as I do an old familiar route that seems to take for.ever. STOP.THAT.RIGHT.NOW. Why do I do that. I have no idea. (But I did stop the wishing away and just enjoy the day and the fact that I was running)

2 - 12:15 - Construction dude who obviously was not working very hard from the amount of clothes he had on.

3 - 12:20 - Big nasty hill but I tried to think about other things. It ended up fairly steady. How this happened, I have no idea.

4 - 12:06 - Overheard a cell phone conversation - "well they picked up that john in New York and he was court-ordered to pay $855" - I swear I actually heard that from someone walking on the sidewalk as I ran by! I really have some ideas, but no actual comments. hee hee

.57 - 10:54 - Nancy's version of sprinting to make that traffic light. I actually have a best pace achieved of 7:15. Seriously. I have no idea.

4.57 miles ~ 55:03 ~ 12:02 pace

I also took on Bev's pushup challenge last week and did 45 girlie pushups in 1 minute. I won, only because Bev decided she is not eligible (something like 60 real ones in a minute? holy crap) and apparently the hardbody was on vacation. Yeah me, even if by default. :D

Congrats on the push-ups! Yes, I was out of town, but I was also afraid of Bev's 60! Holy Cow!

Never underestimate the benefits of the girlie pushup :-) Nice run, Nancy!! Maybe you need a stick to fend of the construction workers :-D

Nice job on the pushups.

Sat night dinners sounds like a nice plan. Will we continue to incorporate that when I move in? hah a.

Great job on the pushups!! I loved Putnam County Spelling Bee! Viv, Timmy & I will be seeing Drowsy Chaperone in May.

Viv said...

LOL @ the things you see and hear during your run. Are you sure you heard that about the John??!!

The family dinners are really nice, and especially good for everyone to cathc up with family. Lovely!

I am glad you got a little time on the couch, while still holding down the fort :-)

I wanted to see Spelling Bee, but am doing Drowsy Chaperone instead, so maybe next time.

Way to go push up champ. I would bust my front teeth if I tried to do 1.
