This morning I am a bit stressed…I got in my car to go on a run this morning, turned the key…Nothing. My car is completely dead. Nothing turns on. No lights. The automatic key to unlock/lock the doors do not even work. Why do things like this have to happen a week before Joe and I move into our new apartment?
I got that off my chest. Moving on.
On Friday, I ran 6.5 miles before my mom came to visit me. I finished in just under an hour (59:42). This was not one of my best long runs lately. The first 3 miles my stomach was hurting and I felt a bit nauseated. I am not sure if this was from dehydration or not letting my food digest long enough but I was close to turning around early. Fortunately, after the first 3 miles my stomach settled and I was able to finish the run. I was able to pick up the pace slightly but I still felt like I was running really slow. This week I am taking a break from longer runs.
My mom and I had a nice visit. We roamed around Ikea looking at things for the new apartment. Later, Joe and I spent the evening with our friends.
Saturday was a celebration for Joe’s birthday. We went rock climbing with a few of our friends near Blowing Rock, ate Supreme Monster Brownies, and celebrated with drinks at Ri Ra’s in Charlotte. It was a really fun night. Joe’s actual birthday is this coming Wednesday and I have a special evening planned for us. 🙂
Since, I wasn’t the best at documenting my weekend. I did take one silly picture of Joe while we were goofing around in REI on Friday night…
When Joe gets home from work, I am hoping we can figure out what is wrong with the car, run, and maybe pick out a tv stand at Ikea! I will update later!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
