On Friday afternoon MacGyver called me from the bar where he was having a drink with our friend Scott. That never happens, but since it did, when he asked me to come meet them, I did.
After a few drinks and no dinner I had the brilliant idea that we should all go to the races. So, we went home to get ready and MacGyver called to see when they started. Only they didn’t because there were no races that night.
Anyway, one thing led to another and by the end of the night it was decided that we would go to the races in Bradenton on Saturday. Then Saturday happened and I said nah. Instead I did this,
I had planned on doing 15 miles but it was supposed to rain all day Sunday according to the weather forecast and my lawn has been seriously neglected. That’s why I spent the next six hours raking leaves and pulling out dead plants and I’d love to show you pictures of how beautiful everything looks except it doesn’t. I have at least 10 or 11 more days before it looks even decent!
In my life the kid swinging into the leaves is actually just the wind from the bajillion cold fronts we get every week. It’s nice for running but hella annoying when it comes to the lawn.
Anywho, raking leaves and squatting down for six hours to pull weeds is apparently a work out because the next morning my legs were SORE! Does that count for strength training because it should. Did I mention how sore I am?
I didn’t let that stop me though because on Sunday morning, I did this,
Two days of double digits. Not bad. That brought my total running miles for the week to 40. Walking miles 4, biking 3. Strength training, 0, yoga, 0. Leave raking and pulling weeds, 6 hours. I’m counting it!
The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out at home avoiding all forms of infected human life and by that I mean prolonging the days until MacGyver and I eventually catch the dreaded flu.
Not if I can help it. I’m hiding out with Hank. I’ll catch up with you after flu season is over.
How was your weekend?
Did you run?
Do you like yard work?
