29.5, 15, 1, 518 and 9,000,002

29.5 That’s the amount of miles that I ran last week.  I ended up with a total of 32.5 but I walked three miles on Thursday so technically I’m still under 30 for the week.  I’m not upset about though because I ran 10.5 miles on Saturday on the Legacy Trail and it was epic.

epic

Okay I will.

Double digits sure feels nice.  It’s not something I can accomplish every day but I’ll take it once a week all day long, I’m still excited about it, in case you couldn’t tell.  I also ran 5 more on Sunday.  Fifteen.  Fifteen is my weekend total of miles run.

After my long run on Saturday I still had a lot of energy so I decided to build a fire pit at the new house.  One fire pit.  It turned out pretty sweet if I do say so myself but then so did my last one.  I think I missed my calling.  Is there a career in fire pit building? I would nail that job.

One.  That’s also the number of Christmas trees that I put up in the Nokomis house and it’s the number of nutcrackers but the nutcracker is rather large.  I got him at a garage sale for 4 bucks, score!

The tree is one that I’ve had for a million years and it has definitely seen better days but I dressed it up anyway and sat in in a galvanized bin and I think it looks all right.

..by next year it may look just like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

Nine.  That’s the number of Sheepshead that MacGyver caught while I was running and building the fire pit.  Sheepshead are fish that have the most beautiful teeth ever.  They seriously look like they just visited the dentist for a cleaning.  It’s uncanny and unfair.  We should have at least two rows of perfect teeth!

SMILE!

But beyond that they taste delicious.  Seriously delicious.  I would know because that’s what we had for dinner last night.  I would eat like that every night if I could.  I’m not even kidding.

518.  That’s the amount of active minutes I racked up on my Motiv ring this week, the most ever by the way.  Probably all from chasing Hank around.

9,000,002. That’s the amount of times that Hank escaped and ran out of the house and took a field trip around the new neighborhood.  It’s also the same amount of times I had to chase his little ass.

I ain’t even sorry about it lady, you need the steps.

That’s it, my weekend by the numbers.

Let’s do something fun, tell me something about your week and use a number.

And just when I thought it was over……

On Saturday I ran 10 miles on the Legacy Trail and ended up with a mid-level migraine that ended up lasting for the entire freakin weekend.  It sucked.  This is what I get for playing doctor and not taking my thyroid medication for almost three weeks because now the long run migraines are back and I’m sure it will take a few weeks to get rid of them again.

Oh, if it were only this easy….

The bad news is, I might have finally solved the mystery of the eye twitch and it has absolutely nothing to do with the thyroid medication and absolutely everything to do with another medication I was sure I needed and it’s the only thing that got rid of my migraines when everything else failed previously.  It turns out that the twitch could actually be caused by the topirimate!  The blessed Topirimate!

oh god noIn case you’re wondering, I’m not going to play around with my medications this time, I’m going to make an appointment this week and talk to my doctor about it, but since the ‘twitch’ started around the same time the doctor increased my dose of topirimate, I’m pretty sure that’s the culprit.

I don’t know why I never considered it before.  As it turns out problems with the eyes are a known side effect with topirimate.  Go figure.  So much for my miracle drug.

I still managed to rally on Saturday and have a little fun.  We went out on the boat and had dinner with the in-laws.  We also went swimming and I found out that my Fibit Charge HR is definitely water resistant.  I’d almost go as far as saying that bitch is damn near waterproof.  I mean, I know it’s not, but it certainly seemed like it when I was showing off in the pool.

Swimming MacGyver was showing his dad how to execute the perfect swimming stroke.  Is that even what you say?  I don’t know because I obviously know absolutely nothing about swimming but that didn’t stop me from jumping into the water and showing off my perfectly imperfect breast stroke while forgetting to remove my Fitbit Charge HR.  Yeah, I did that.

And then I swam across the pool a few more times.  And then, I remembered I had it on.

Still worksIt still works!

I slept in on Sunday morning and I slept a lot of the day on Sunday too but I could not get rid of the migraine.  It just did not want to go away so I finally just gave in and decided to rest.  For some reason that’s a hard thing for me to do.

This morning I was rewarded for it because I woke up migraine free and I was able to run again.  It wasn’t a lot of fun though.  If you follow me on Instagram or facebook you may already know why.

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything exciting?  Did you know the Fitbit Charge HR was water resistant?

A long Weekend hawking coffee cups for peanuts

Well, that was nice and relaxing.  Because when you have a three day long garage sale and you really want to keep it short, especially when the weather man calls for temps in the mid 90’s, you advertise that you’re ending at 2PM every day.  That way people will only show up til 8PM just as you’re finishing a late dinner and about to undress and jump in the shower.

moron

I wish I would have had this mug to sell them.  I would have even bought it if I could have found it locally.  It was completely appropriate.  People are really that rude.  And stupid.

For the most part though, people were generally nice but Mom and I were exhausted.  We got up early every single morning and worked outside from 6:30AM til 8:30PM three nights in a row and then we worked around my house all day on Sunday.  I think we need a vacation now.  Thankfully we have some hefty garage sale cash with which to take one.

Cha Ching

I’m going to take Mom down to Nokomis later this week and we’re going to vacation for 4 or 5 days and do all kinds of things but until then, reality.

Even with everything going on last week I still managed to run 33 miles last week, 16 of them over the weekend.  I also put over 120,000 steps on my fitbit.   And, I got in 2 weight workouts and a 30 minute yoga routine from a youtube video so yeah, I am feeling a little super human right now.

It’s been really dry here in Florida and crazy hot but we’re expecting a cool down and some rain later in the week so say a prayer for us because we really need it.  I’ve got to get going for now.  For some reason I’ve got a really strong craving for coffee….

What did you do this weekend?
