Today seems to be moving along at a snail’s pace! I am so ready for the weekend to get started and it feels like it is taking forever. Is anyone else’s Friday moving really slowly?
Since it is Friday, it is time for our weekly coffee date! So go grab a delicious cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and let’s chat. By the way, I am drinking a Grande Americano today with just a touch of soy milk. One of these days I will walk into Starbucks and they will have delicious almond milk for my coffee.
If we were having coffee today, I would ask how your week was. Mine ended up being very busy. Pete and I started a new strength training program this week and it has totally kicked our butts. Plus, I have been trying to get caught up on everything that I missed from last week. As much as I enjoyed the training class last week, I have been swamped all week because of it.
If we were having coffee today, I would ask about your plans for the weekend. To be quite honest, I am thrilled to not be racing this weekend. I feel like I have had a race every weekend since the start of the year. It will be nice to run because I want to and not because I have to. My mom’s birthday is on Sunday so I am sure that we will be doing something. Who knows … maybe there will be a surprise trip to Walt Disney World or something.
If we were having coffee today, I tell you about the amazing weather we have been having. Even though the rest of the country is knee deep in snow, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. I know that it won’t last for much longer but I am loving the spring-like weather we are having here. Normally, we go straight to summer without having any sort of spring. I actually had to wear a coat to work today because it was so chilly this morning.
If we were having coffee today, I would want to know if you have started looking at your fall racing calendar. I know that it is absolutely crazy to be looking at fall races but I can’t help it. Just because I am not running any long distance races any time soon doesn’t mean that I am not planning which ones I want to run this fall. I already have my fall marathon picked out (the Space Coast Marathon) and I am all registered for my fourth Wine and Dine Half Marathon. Has it really been four years since I started running?!?
