Happy Easter, my friends! I’m actually getting this post up a day early! With tomorrow being Marathon Monday, I wanted to dedicate my blog post to Boston tomorrow. It’s such a big day not only for Boston, but for the running community as a whole.
My weekend has been pretty good. Yesterday was actually a busy one with a couple of appointments I had on the schedule. The day started off with a run as per usual, with my Galloway girls. We ran 8 miles out on the Seminole-Weikiva Trail. It was a nice morning weather-wise. The temperature was about 67 degrees and felt nice. This seems to have become a favorite trail for a few of us. We are already talking about coming back out there in a couple of weeks for another 6-8 mile run.
After my run, I headed home to clean up and shower. I had a lunchtime appointment to get my oil changed at the local Honda dealer. I actually tried to get the oil change done after work one evening, but the place I went to wanted to charge me like $80! My Civic has never been serviced by anyone but Honda, so with the dealer continually offering a $35 oil change for the type of oil my car needs, looks like I may be going to them every 5,000 miles. Unfortunately, as they always tend to do at the dealer, they tried to sell me some other services. Just an oil change please, thanks! 🙂
Saturday run with the girls
Then, I had to hurry over to America’s Best for my eye exam appointment. I had been putting off getting my eyes examined for way too long, and I desperately need new glasses. The staff and everyone I dealt with there was very nice and great. The only thing is, that whole $59.95 deal you hear about on the TV commercials? Yeah, that’s not really likely to happen for anyone. Totally a ploy to get you in the door. I walked out after paying over four time that amount for the exam and two pairs of glasses (one being sunglasses). Ouch! No such thing as a deal that seems too good to be true! I should have the new glasses in a week and a half or so…hoping by week’s end, but could be next week depending upon how fast they get to my order.
And finally, I went to the Easter service at Northland with my mom Saturday night. What a wonderful, powerful service! Since I’ve been living in Kissimmee, I’ve been watching mostly online this year, so I really missed being actually at a worship service. Pastor Joel had a great sermon message that I really loved. It was about moving forward with faith and enjoying life with God now, not waiting for the day you die and go to Heaven. Pastor Joel is one of, if not my favorite preachers, he really communicates the Word in a way I can understand and can relate to.
Today, Easter Sunday has been spent so far mostly relaxing at home with my bird, Toby. I slept in a bit and hit the gym before lunchtime for a bike workout. I’ll be heading over to see my parents for a bit around dinnertime. All in all, it’s been a good weekend with a mix of things going on.
Looking back at last week’s goals…
1. Daily food logging. Another week I can check off!
2. Hydration! Did okay with this, not as well as I could have though.
3. Get WPRR BibRave review written. Just got it done! 🙂
4. Read new devotional each day. Eh, admit that I’m starting it today…
5. Finger/hand training with Toby bird. We are sort of getting there, working on it with him.
6. Get my eyes examined/new glasses. Done, got it done yesterday.
This week’s goals…
1. Daily food logging, keep keeping on!
2. Hydration, important with Dark Side Half on Sunday!
3. Read devotional each day.
4. Workout 5 days this week.
5. Continue to work with Toby bird on training.
