And another one bites the dust. This weekend was full of gorgeous weather, a lot of relaxing, some celebrating, and fun.
Friday was another crazy day at work, but I was able to escape at a reasonable hour to head home and unwind. Will was heading out to a Lord Huron concert Friday night which I really wanted to go to, but knowing I had to be up early early Saturday morning, I figured it would be best to hang in. Although Will said the concert was amazing and I was so bummed I couldn’t be there, the extra rest definitely did me well.
Saturday morning I woke up early and trekked across Connecticut to run the Hogsback Half marathon. I love this race. It’s the third year I’ve run it and the second year in the row it has hosted the RRCA Connecticut state championships. The course almost mimics Boston as it is a net downhill for the first few miles, and from mile 7 on, rolling uphills, and then a 1/2 mile climb to the finish. While it’s a taxing race, I wanted to shake the racing cobwebs off and get comfortable feeling uncomfortable again.
I’ll discuss more tomorrow but the race went well. I was able to keep a steady pace, and felt like I could’ve kept going. So not feeling like dying at the end = good. Watch time 1:29:53.
Saturday night Will and I celebrated his friends engagement, had some delicious food, and got to spend a beautiful evening outside drinking and socializing. Afterwards, I proceeded to pass out while viewing his parents pictures from their recent trip to Africa. As I dozed off on their couch, I heard Will saying, “I think we lost my girlfriend”. Guys… I’m like, SUPER fun.
Sunday was spent doing errands, cleaning, and all the things that no one wants to do on the weekend. Although, we finished off the evening with some homemade pizza. I really do not think it will ever get old.
Sneak peak: 50 miles last week – the cut back felt awesome and I’m excited to build back up this week, and hit high milage again the following week before taper time. When did that happen!?
What was the best part of your weekend?
Any other Lord Huron fans out there?
