I am back in PA after a brief weekend visit to my mom’s at the beach. This weekend was much needed! I don’t have much in the way of pics, mostly because you all don’t really need to see me in a bikini and I also didn’t really take anything worth posting. I got down to my mom’s relatively late on Friday and immediately went to bed. I had the worst time trying to fall asleep for unknown reasons. I might have been a little anxious for my long run on Sat. I knew it was going to be hot when I woke up and man, it was. I got out the door at 6:45am and the sun was already climbing. I did a loop close to my mom’s house and it was not easy. I definitely had to take a few walk breaks and averaged a 10:23 pace overall. I’d say not too bad for it being hot as balls and humid.
Meh. I was happy to get the whole thing out of the way so I could really enjoy my Saturday… at Seacrets! I met up with a friend from college and enjoyed the afternoon with her crew. It wasn’t nearly as packed as it was Memorial Weekend which meant faster service. I went through half a bottle of SPF 50 and still managed to get some sun on my shoulders. I tried.
Saturday night I met up with one of my best friends from high school and her husband. We went to Mango Mike’s in Bethany and had the worst waiter ever. I had no idea why, but every time he dropped a round off he’d slam the glasses on the table and roll his eyes. My guess is he had a really bad day, why wouldn’t you want your customers to keep spending money? And it’s not like opening three bottles of beer is hard work. I worked as a server and made a point to not take out any annoyances on my customers. Why ruin the chance of a good tip? I don’t think we’ll be going back there for a while. It was a pretty low key night and I was home and in bed before 2am.
Sunday, I got up around 10ish, moseyed over to Wawa for some brunch, stopped at the liquor store for some lager, vodka, and rum, and then changed and went to hang out at my friend’s parents’ pool. It was quite the fun, relaxing afternoon.
When I got back up here, I felt really antsy and didn’t see anything enticing on TV to watch. Scott went to his grandma’s for the weekend and I needed to kill some time. With all the energy, I figured I’d go for a quick jog around town. Apparently I had a lot more energy than I thought.
Woo! The first mile was no stopping, but the second I did pause on a couple breaks. I basically would sprint til I felt sickish (not ill, just weird bc of the heat/humidity), then walk for a few seconds, then start sprinting again. The humidity is pretty bad tonight and seeing this makes me long for fall running where I won’t have to stop to catch my breath or cool down. I think the tempo runs and speedwork are starting to pay off.
That was my weekend in a nutshell. Some running, a bit of drinking, and a lot of sunshine.
How was your weekend?
