On Friday night I was going to have a rest night - K had said that we could do a big cycle on Saturday early evening when she got home from work. A few minutes later A and K were having a small altercation that seemed to go on for a while even though it was so silly so I went to my room to read. Read for a while and then realised that I really needed to run it out and not lie there stewing over their differences. Got changed, got my phone and off I set. 6.9km later I was home again - SO pleased that I had run - with a good time as I had only walked about 3 or 4 times and not for very long each time. Nothing like a run to clear my mind.
Unfortunately when I got back I saw a tweet from @coloursofsunset saying that there was a 5km timed run on Saturday morning at Main Beach. I said I would see how my legs felt in the morning and maybe join her and her husband. I woke up on Saturday morning - they felt too tight to run so we got up and got dressed and went down anyway. I watched her come in and beofre we left A said I should go and say hullo - trouble is that I am really shy. Anyway, he nudged me along and said he would go and get the car while I said hullo - so off I went. I am so pleased I did - she is such a lovely lady. I am just sorry that A had to go to work and so we couldn't talk for longer. While we were talking, two ladies from Lululemon came up and gave A a choice of two running shirts and offered her husband a pair of shorts. We talked for a while and then A told them I ran as well and they gave me a pair of socks - can't wait to try them out tomorrow night - they look really comfy.
I popped in to see my folks yesterday - as always, we seem to find things to laugh about. I found this picture taken last Easter when we went to Stanthorpe for the day. Thank goodness, I am no longer this big !!!!!
No cycling last night - K got home from work and then sat on the computer until about 6.30pm before saying "Are we going to cycle?" - I said no because our lights aren't working properly. A and I cycled this morning - down to Sunningdale Bridge then back up to Paradise Point before coming home. My legs felt like lead for the first 5km - from 5-17km my legs felt great - I felt like I could have cycled forever - 18-22km - I don't know how I managed to keep my legs turning over - maybe the thought of falling off my bike kept them going. I couldn't even stop as I wouldn't have been able to walk those last kms home !!!!! But it was all good - so glad that I did it - the day was great - no wind, a little cool but OK once we got going.
Went to My Fit Fridge to see their meals and bought a couple to try out - mainly because with A going away and only K and I at home, I really can't be bothered cooking meals for just the two of us. Plus I have a couple of clients booked this week and if I am going to exercise as well, I need to have decent meals planned otherwise I will land up eating toast every night.
Well another weekend nearly at an end - and another work week about to begin. I said to Al when we were on our way home today - even though we don't know what is happening with his job - life is good I am extremely fortunate to have such an amazing family, the support and friendship of some amaxing people, my health and motivation to exercise and get fit - I LOVE LIFE right now !
Have the best week ever !
