Today turned out to be a glorious Friday. I started my day out with a 4 mile run on the treadmill. It felt so good and it was so much better than my run on Wednesday. I did make it to the gym on Wednesday afternoon because the lab I TA ended up being canceled. However, my run was crappy. My knees were hurting and I only ended up doing 2.5 miles in 30 minutes (lots of walking!) and then I did 20 minutes on the bike to make up for it. I am breaking in a new pair of running shoes, so that might have something to do with it! Today was amazing. I did 4 miles in 44 minutes. I did some intervals, but nothing too regimented. I just ran as much as I could and walked when I needed it. It was the perfect way to start the day.
This afternoon, my lovely fiance brought me this:
Isn't he the sweetest? He's been very busy with student teaching lately and he's not home very often anymore. Sometimes I'm a little lonely around here (he didn't get home until 8:30 last night!) and I think he knows that and wanted to cheer me up. And I really appreciate it. And to finish off my afternoon, I started filling out some Valentine's for my friends:
After all, I do love my friends! Well, I hope you all have a great weekend. I'm hoping to get in a nice swim tomorrow and I have a six mile run planned for Sunday. Here's to hoping it warms up a bit!
