It feels like it’s been a while, even though it really hasn’t.
My brother was in town on Thursday night, so Tim and I went to meet him for a bit at a bar. It was late for me, but since I was working from home Friday, I knew I’d get to sleep in a little (since I wouldn’t have to waste time getting ready and commuting). I don’t get to see my brother too often, so it was nice to hang out for a while.
On Friday, I got a little bit of extra sleep, then headed to spinning and the weight room. I spent the rest of the day doing work, and I feel as though I got more done than a typical Friday. I really, really liked working from home. Anyway, Tim left early in the morning for his bachelor party (that’s why my brother was here, but he stayed with his friend), so I was a lone solider, which I didn’t mind nearly as much as I thought I was. I was pretty busy all weekend though. Anyway, here is my Friday morning workout.

Around 5, my friend Maura texted me to meet her for happy hour, so I swung by for a cider. Then, I got changed and headed over to the beer mile.
We had a delayed start, but began around 7:15. My legs actually felt good, the gluten-free pale ales went down easily, and I was done at 8:04, a new PR. I was pretty pumped about that. I hung out there until about 9:30. I hadn’t realized it had gotten that late, and I hadn’t eaten dinner, so I headed home.
I was up WAY too early after my late night to meet Colin and Jim. We ran eight miles, and my legs complained the whole time. They just felt so heavy and sluggish. I tacked on a few more, quickly showered, and as I was blow drying my hair, my mom and grandmothers arrived.
We had an appointment for my last dress fitting, and my grandmas wanted to come to see the dress. It was nice of them to come, but I totally had a HOLY SHIT I AM REALLY GETTING MARRIED moment. I didn’t say anything, but I got a little freaked out. I really started wishing we had just eloped, because I really got even more nervous about everything. Oh well, soldier on. My dress still fits though, thank God. I need to lose roughly 30 pounds in a month. Doable, I am sure.
We didn’t have time for a long lunch, so we went to Yellowbird and everyone seemed to like it. My two grandmothers are the cutest things, and it was adorable watching one help the other down a step with a cup of coffee. It was also sort of a “whoa” moment because I think my grandmas are so strong and healthy, but they are both in their 80s and a little more fragile than I thought. I am lucky to have them.
I was bummed they had to leave (to make church), as there are so many things I would have loved to show them. Oh well.
I had a little free time, so I took care of some errands, laundry, took a power nap and read for a bit. I then had to start getting ready, because Liz and I were headed to the winery for a luau. It was a beautiful night, and we had a nice time sitting outside enjoying our beverages. The food was “eh” at best, I would have been annoyed if I had paid for tickets, to be honest. I did finally get my first corn on the cob of the season though!
After we left, we decided to swing by McGrath’s for a drink, then we went home. It was a nice night!
I was up way too early again to meet Jill, but I am so glad I did. We met at 6:45 and got in 12 miles. I know I always say this, but the miles went so much faster with her. My legs were still a little heavy and sluggish, but they felt better than Saturday. I am so happy to have gained so many running friends in the past year! I ran to/from our meeting spot, so I got in 15 total. I also filled my 22-ounce water bottle five times.
Tim arrived home a little after and I was in the middle of another power nap. We went to brunch with his mom, sister and brother-in-law, and then we came home and he played video games and I did work. We took a break to go meet Maura for a drink, then came home for dinner before another early bedtime. Yet, I still sit here yawning already.
Some day, I will catch up on sleep.
