I must confess, I plan my rest days around the weather.B I take a look at my dinky Iphone weather app and on the day the sun icon is the biggest, I schedule my long run.B Real science at work there.B Although with my work schedule, I only have two options: Saturday or Sunday.B Regards, its cold and rainy this morning and after 5 days of running it was time for a break.
Friday was the first sign of a rest required.B 6 Miles – 2incline – 52:30 – 6.9MPH.B
Too slow for a speed workout so I’ll write it off as an easy run even if it felt less than easy.B After my run, I came home and enjoyed someB Spaghetti Squash and some frosty adult beverages.
Also, is anyone else addicted to Temple Run?B It’s a silly Iphone game where you run and collect coins.B Pretty simple but addictive. Anyways I finally broke a million!B If you’re in the 5 million and up club, don’t laugh at me!
On Saturday I decided a rest day makes a great day for volunteering. Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Aside from hanging out with some awesome people while peeling potatoes I get to enjoy an awesome free lunch!
Roasted veggies, spicy taco meat, rice, black beans and a crispy quesadilla!B This is totally worth peeling some potatoes for!B But the real part I came for was the dessert!
Chocolate cake, Ice cream and a toffee bar.B It was a triple birthday party at CS so triple dessert.B I love my birthday but other people’s birthdays are pretty awesome too.B Especially when I get cake!
After some volunteering I put my apron and hair-net away and went to Trader Joe’s to load up on wine for my fundraising party I’m throwing next week.B You think this is a single serving?
And because I haven’t posted a cat picture in a while here’s Agent Meower ready for his bath:
Jack Meower like me is also taking a rest day and is enjoying the comfort of sleeping on my butt behind my legs.
Did you get snow or rain this weekend?B Where are you?
We had 3 small snow storms before Friday and then rain today.B I’m in Boston =)
What did you do with your Saturday?
After volunteering I am now catching up on episodes of Fringe and my book “Girl who played with fire”
What are you favorite rainy day activities?
Mine include ice cream, books and tea!
What about Sunday?B Anything fun?
Hopefully my last longest run before DC.B I’m targeting 26.2 miles
