Busy Weekend

What a busy weekend. I am kind of glad it is over, so I can get on the business of getting the next 2 weeks of school and work over with and then a week off!

Friday afternoon my daughter and I went to Target and bought a ton of stuff for her for camp, then went grocery shopping and bought mainly healthy stuff!

Saturday morning I slept in a little (weight, 220.4) but then spent a few hours doing chores and organizing around the house before leaving for a full day of sports that started at 10:00 am and ended at 9:00 pm!  I went to bed almost immediately so I could get up and run.

I was awake at 5:00 but forced myself to lie in bed and rest until 6:00 am. I then drove to my favorite rail trail for 6 miles. I won't be able to get back here for while, so I took in the beauty. The 6 miles wasn't real easy. I took 2 small walk breaks - one at 3 miles when I turned around I walked for .1 miles, and the second was at about 5 miles - usually I don't walk across a street but I decided. More of a mental hurdle than and physical one.

After I finished running I walked up the path a little to hang out by a brook. I wish I had brought flip flops with me or I would have gone wading.

The rest of the day was spent doing more chore and getting stuff ready for camp, and then the day finished out with my son's baseball game. It didn't get over until 7:00 and we were all starving so we went to Papa Ginos - I had 2 small pieces of pepperoni, a couple of small breadsticks, and a lot of Greek Salad. I was way over in calories today, but with 6 miles under my belt, I am okay with that.

On to Monday!


  1. A perfect weekend!!!

    I love your trail! Is that a rail trail????

    1. A rail trail is a former railroad bed - The 2 I frequent have been paved, so are good for a variety of activities. Some rail trails around here have just been cleared of their railroad ties, but aren't paved so aren't good for rollerblading or biking with a road bike.

  2. Sounds like a good weekend. Busy for sure, so great job still getting in your run.
