Weekend Recap

Friday morning I hit the gym before work, well-rested and rearing to go. I had 5 miles planned and dangit that's what I did. They were brutal, my legs felt like lead, but I kicked through them and felt good for getting it done on a Friday morning at 5am.

There was a lot of fun and alcohol consumed both Friday and Saturday night. It's been a while since I have gone out both nights out of a weekend, and drank a lot of liquor. Ouch! Too much drinking Friday night, thus I did not get in my scheduled brick workout Saturday morning. Last night we went out to a local comedy club and got to see The Midnight Swinger perform.... freakin' hilarious! He is from Las Vegas and if you ever get a chance to see him, do it! I had a few drinks, but nothing that kept me from enjoying the beautiful 35 degree weather on a 3 mile run this morning.

Today I got a few more Christmas gifts crossed off the list, as well as lights and other stuff for decorating around the house. I was going to put up my tree this afternoon, but I lost the motivation!

Tomorrow and Tuesday we have long days due to two evenings full of parent-teacher conferences, but Wednesday is our comp day and I look forward to heading to the Bis then!

Have a great week y'all! I am going to try and catch up with your blogs this evening!

Good for you for getting that Christmas shopping going. I've been thinking about it a lot, but that's as far as I've gotten. :)

Good luck with your conferences! Then it's vacation time! :)

I need to start some shopping myself. Have a great short work week and a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

I don't think I can recover from that type of weekend anymore. I did one night like that a few weekends ago and felt sluggish all day Monday.

hepsmom said...

Okay, that's two mmore things to be thankful for. We're out of school all week AND we don't have parent-teacher conferences this week.

Good luck and godspeed to you!

Great job on the workouts in spite of the alcohol consumption.

MarathonRandy said...

Way to go on the Fri morning workout. At least you are acclimated to the colder mornings.

We got more Christmas shopping done this weekend. Year before last we started collecing Santa Claus statues and we added to the collection last year. This year with all the pre-Thanksgiving sales we've already doubled our collection I think.

Your 27 and can bounce back from drinking....

I had two beverages on Saturday and then Sunday taught 2 classes. Let's just say, there wasn't alot of bounce. You got 10 years to go.....

sounds like a stellar weekend running and drinking :-)
Ugh parent teacher conference. I hated that time of year when I was in school. It always came right before Christmas too.

Nothing like an early morning workout to get you going for the day.
