Three Cheers for Friday!!

Happy Friday! Thank goodness it’s finally here. I am very ready for the weekend! What are your weekend plans?

For me it’s squeezing in my 5-mile run tonight that I missed on Wednesday, pasta dinner with my cousin-in-law tomorrow night and the More Magazine Half Marathon and 20+ run on Sunday morning. And then my taper will begin!

As for yesterday, my day started out with a boring breakfast of Kashi Heart to Heart cereal.

My lunch was not too exciting either and the photos are absolutely mind-numbing, so I’m not posting them. I had a PB&J sandwich on wheat bread, a Chobani yogurt and an apple. See boring.

Weather.com toyed with me throughout the day – saying a thunderstorm was coming at varying times. Finally around 3:00 p.m. I said “screw it”, closed the website and told myself if I got rained on it wouldn’t be the end of the world. I wasn’t missing another run.

I flew home after work, as usual, and got ready in record time. I headed out to clear skies. Here are my stats from my run:

Mile 1 – 8:35
Mile 2 – 7:51
Mile 3 – 8:22
Mile 4 – 8:09
Mile 5 – 8:23
.14 – 1:15

Total mileage – 5.14 in 42:38. Average pace – 8:17 minute miles

The sky was definitely starting to get dark as I neared home, but I was doing a little ha-ha happy dance in my mind because I beat the rain and broke free from weather.com’s curse. Being a weatherman is such a cush gig.

After my run I cleaned a huge pile of dirty dishes and then made myself a quick dinner.

Soup with a side of carrots and grape tomatoes with dill hummus. This hummus was amazing and I will definitely be buying it again.

A little before 7:30 Hubby began readying a spot in front of the t.v. and preparing for some grand event. The NFL Draft of course. I forgot what a big deal it is for people every year. Did you watch the draft?

While Hubby hunkered down for some NFL excitement, I got pretty excited about this dessert…

Ohhh yum! I am making this again tonight. I have been snacking on some chocolate chips here and there when I need something sweet, but this was a grand decision. I just melted a handful of chocolate chips in the microwave for about a minute, mixed up the chocolate and drizzled it over top the strawberries. AMAZING!! I am actually craving this right now.

As of right now, weather.com says RAIN still for Sunday. It’s the only day on the forecast that has not changed in the slightest. Fantastic. I’m just going to keep my fingers crossed that, like usual, the weathermen have no clue.

I think today I may also start seriously planning/looking into our trip to Ireland. Anyone have suggestions?!

  1. Hoping the weatherman is wrong about Sunday’s weather for you!

    My weekend is going to be busy, I’m co-chairing an annual clean up day in our town. I’ll be coordinating the project sites for the 300 volunteers we hope will show up! Afterwards I’m meeting up with my wives club of ladies that get together once a month. 🙂

    Sunday I have a 5 mile race…. um we will see how much I really “race”. LOL

    Have a fabulous weekend!!!

  2. How did I miss this? You are going to Ireland?? When…how awesome!!!

  3. Yay! I’m glad you got your run in! I looove Ireland. My girlfriends and I stayed at this beautiful B&B in County Cork that was right on the water. It was a short driving distance to the Ring of Kerry, which was awesome! I have pics if you are interested! The B&B was pretty standard but the views were simply amazing.

  4. Oh man, we watched the draft too. We really need to get the guys together at some point. They can stay up watching sports nonsense and we can get to bed early in preparation for morning runs!
