It’s Thursday and I feel like this week has just been insane! It started out great since I was feeling the after race glow and blog love, but then it turned into a monster of a work week.
With deadlines looming and emails out the wazoo it’s no wonder that I’m looking forward to this weekend. Dontcha’ just love the weekend? I mean, it’s two whole days of non-working bliss and you can choose to get stuff done or just play, play, play. Both of these options can be good, especially since YOU get to decide how to spend your time instead of the old Boss Man.
That being said, today, I am SO thankful for weekends.
Weekends for me usually involve some sort of running, biking, and/or swimming. I sometimes throw in a tiny bit of housework and fun times with family or friends. This weekend shall be no different.
Saturday I plan on getting in my ten mile long run cause I raced last weekend and didn’t get it in. I know the race should suffice, but something about that ten miler always makes me feel so good. I think it’s because I know it’s helping me keep up my base, which is so important.
After my long run, I’m heading to see ‘Arry Potta with P-Funk and her daughter. I CANNOT wait. In addition to being a total LOTR nerd, I’m also a huge ‘Arry Potta fan. No, I won’t tell you what LOTR is and yes, you do have to say Harry Potter with the British accent.
Sunday I’ve got my summertime 5K, the Run thru Hell. It’s one of my favorite races every year and I have no idea why. It’s hot, it’s humid, it can be muddy and runs through a trail. These are not things I typically enjoy but this race has been my summertime 5K for a few years in a row now. I never look for a PR at this event because of the heat and humidity but I enjoy it just the same. I do so love a 5K!
I also plan on swimming on Sunday barring any late afternoon rain and then I’m going to just lie on the couch and snuggle Lloyd. He loves the weekends just as much as I do.
What are you thankful for today?
I am SO thankful for weekends, too! But today, I'm mostly thankful that I could run 5.5 miles and felt great (longest I've run in weeks due to my foot). And, the weather was glorious!
I am thankful I get to fly back Houston!
We can compare HP notes tomorrow while we're exhausted at our desks! 🙂
You know I love a weekend! Going to another balloonfest with my Grandpa this time. 🙂
Give Lloyd a snuggle for me!
Wait….you mean there are people who don't know what LOTR is?!?! How can this be?
Have a great weekend!
My husband and I, along with a couple of friends, are going to see Harry Potter tomorrow night. I went ahead and got tickets Tuesday for the movie.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and good luck at Sunday's race.
I'm not seeing it until tomorrow night, eeks! I can't wait!
AHHHHH! I'm losing my mind of Harry Potter. I'm going to the midnight premiere tonight. I'm also a huge LOTR nerd too. I'm one of those annoying people that constantly screams out "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"
I'm thankful for my blogger friends that remind me I'm not crazy it's a runner/triathlete thing! 🙂 I'm going to see horrible bosses tomorrow, I hope it's bust a gut funny!
Hoping to see HP7/2 this weekend as well, with the Enthusiast and my nephew. However, I'm thankful for pay day tomorrow. Cheers!
I'm guessing you're also excited The Hobbit is finally filming? First part is due in 2013.
I am thankful my mom is flying my daughter and myself to Texas for Thanksgiving!
I'm thankful that I'm days away from my taper for my first half IM! Woot!!!!!! MIss you and the great Pfunk!
