Morning! So I am setting here this morning, drinking a glorious cup of coffee, watching Castle. The last couple of days have been a little busy, so I decided to unplug for a bit. I spent Saturday at the soccer field with my brother and his family and we had the best time. The kids had their regular games, but they also had some make-up games. It was so much fun!
I thought that it was finally time to get out my Starbucks pumpkin cup! 🙂
My niece Erin just loves it when I take a hundred pictures of her. She really does. 🙂
They really are the coolest kids. Ever.
Dalton has a lil friend that also plays soccer and the even share the same number.
All of the dads sat in this same position. :) My brother does it well…
So yesterday I had to only work a half-day and I was so ready to leave at noon. Once noon rolled around I headed over to wal-mart to pick up some poster board and then I headed straight home to wash my car. It really needed it! I really wanted to go somewhere, but don’t really have a lot of money to just go and my friend that was at home is packing up her house to move to Ohio soon. Sooooo, I did a few things around the house. Around 4:30 my friend called and had decided that she didn’t want to set at home so we ended up going to a nearby town to pick up a few things that she wanted. Where did we go?? First stop was Hastings. She and her son went to the movie section and I went to the book section. 🙂
Second stop was Starbucks. Now if you know me, you know that I can never go here and not get anything. My friend ended up paying for everything! Two stops down and still no money spent!
Third and final stop……Target. I was actually kind of glad that this was one of our stops. I really needed a new pair of jeans, so I went straight to the women’s department and found a pair for $20! Score!
When I got home, my friend sent me this text! Her cat Potter dressed as a bee. 🙂
So yesterday was a total rest day for me. I ended up doing some stretching and some foam rolling and it felt great!
Here is my schedule for the week complements of Cait at Arty Runner Chick:
Monday: Rest with lots of stretching
Tuesday: 3 miles, easy pace. Core work: 30 second plank, 10 push-ups, 25 crunches, 10 squats, two times through.
Wednesday: Rest with stretching
Thursday: 4 miles of speed work. 10 minute warm-up, 3 minutes fast-3 minutes easy, 2 minutes fast-2 minutes easy, 1 minute fast-2 minutes easy, 1 minute fast-and then finish up with an easy pace.
Friday: 3 miles easy pace. Same core work from Tuesday.
Saturday: Rest with stretching
Sunday: Long run of 6 miles
So it’s Tuesday. Just four more days until the weekend. I have to work, but that’s ok too….. :) I have some vacation time coming up and I am really ready for a break of just lazy mornings, coffee with the sunrise, hangin out with my parents, staying in my pj’s all day long… 😉
I hope you guys have a great day!
