I'm actually working on Labor Day, whine whine. Ok, moving on.
I had a great 3 day weekend. I started feeling bad last Thursday, sore throat and headachy, then felt worse Friday so I called in sick to work. I just laid around all day, and had one of those completely unproductive but wonderful couch days. Saturday I felt a little better but still not great. I did manage to get out for a nice, easy 4 miler which felt fantastic. This cooler weather is SO nice for running. Rich was working all weekend, so me and the pups had the house to ourselves. We did a little cleaning, ran a few errands, and watched several hours of Food Network and Fools Rush In...LOVE that movie!
Yesterday Rich and I got up and hit the gym for a quick half-hour on the elliptical. I really love the elliptical because it's the only form of exercise that I can do while reading. I've tried reading while running on the treadmill, but that didn't work out so well (I fell off). The only bad thing about the elliptical is that it makes my toes go numb, but other than that I really like it.
I was going stir crazy after 2 days home alone, so after Rich left for work I went to the beach with some of our friends. It was a beautiful day, but a little too windy for the beach. We got sandblasted! After a few hours on the beach, we went back to their house and grilled some turkey burgers and hung out for a while. This entire summer has been so busy, and I have either worked, had family in town, or been out of town almost every single weekend since like May. So this lazy weekend was exactly what I had been craving!
