I could get used to this!

I am on a "2 mile" rampage!

Friday, Saturday and this morning (Monday) I cranked out 2 miles.  Friday I was able to get outside but Saturday and this morning, the weather just wasn't right so I hit the treadmill.  I used the elliptical to warm up for about 15 minutes then pounded out those quick miles!  This morning it was just enough to help loosen up my legs from my long run yesterday.

Sunday I couldn't resist the sun and I headed out for a long run.  I wasn't exactly sure of the distance but I had a route planned so I just went with it.  My legs wanted to run and I had a hard time pulling them back to a slower pace.  The wind was cold but the sun was hot so I felt overdressed and under dressed at the same time!

5.2 miles in 41:40 (8:00 min/mile pace)

This weekend was very relaxing.  I was able to work on my crochet afghan and I am about 3/4 done!  I was also able to fit in sometime to read some new books I picked up from the library!

Brian and I were also able to try some new restaurants in the area!  Friday we went to a local Irish Pub and had a great meal then Saturday we tried a local Wood Fired Pizzaria!  It is great finding new places to eat that have good food!


Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!!  Happy Monday!!
