Friday came and went and the project I’ve worked so hard on remained in limbo due to the domain name transfer that is still in process. Frustrating doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt about it but I couldn’t dwell over it. The weekend was here.
MacGyver and I have a new obsession and we are half way through it.
So, that’s what we did on Friday night.
We decided to sleep in on Saturday because it stormed for most of the night and when we did finally get up on Saturday it was still pouring and it didn’t stop until much later in the day. I walked a few miles on the treadmill but that was about it. I ran a few errands later in the day and then MacGyver and I went to dinner and I did a little shopping but mostly just because I wanted to wear my duck boots, not because we needed anything.
The rain also brought with it some very cold weather and when we woke up on Sunday it was 30 degrees. THIRTY DEGREES! In Florida! So I looked at MacGyver and said, ‘I’m gonna go out and get in a long run’. And his reaction was something like this….
I’m pretty sure we know the answer to that. Mind or no mind I had a mission, and by around 8:15 or so I headed out the door with some hot hands in my gloves and some miles on my agenda. The plan was to stick with my ten mile long run and if I felt good near the end to tack on an additional mile.
This is what I ended up with.
I’d call that a pretty good day. Right?
When I got home, I managed to wrangle MacGyver and Hank out from under the electric blanket and then Boomer and I dragged them out the door for a walk.
Have I ever showed you the smoothies that I refuel with every day after I run?
That’s the nectar of the God’s right there.
After walking the dogs I jumped in the shower and then I told MacGyver to get dressed and we hopped in the car and headed over to Tampa. I forgot about a little game that’s going on here this week between Auburn and Alabama but somehow on the way to Tampa I got sandwiched between 5 of these buses.
I have to say that all of the football fans MacGyver and I encountered were so sweet and so nice, it was a pleasure meeting each and every one of them.
In case you’re wondering where we were going, we went to the zoo.
I don’t want to bombard you with a gazillion photos from the trip but I do have to show you some of my favorites so here are a few.
This is the Runner species. This runner almost fell in the splash fountain while trying to pose as she was freezing!
My spirit animal!
You really wanna go to the zoo right now don’t you?
All right, let’s recap, shall we?
Last week I ran 33 miles, walked 2 miles, did 2 strength workouts, 2 weight workouts, and 1 yoga workout. Not bad. My diet was totally on point. All Gluten free and extremely low sugar all of which was completely natural, (mostly from fruit).
How did you do last week? Strong areas? Weak areas? Anything you want to talk about?
How is your weather right now?
When is the last time you went to the zoo and what’s your most favorite animal?
