Holiday Weekend Recap

Back to Reality .. The nice 3.5 day weekend is officially over as I am sitting at my desk at work. Boo!

Anyhow, I packed all my stuff Thurs. night and made a mess in my room! I was looking for one pair of shorts and had to take just about everything in my closet out and toss it on the floor!

My room is now a mess!
I was working a half day on Friday and wanted to get a quick cycling workout in before leaving for the day (plus I wanted to test out my new shoes). I met Allison down at Haines Point and we got about an hour of riding in. I love my shoes and only fell once near one of the museums. It was also great to ride with someone.
After the car was packed we were on the road by 1 o'clock and at the beach by 5 :) I think I have mentioned we need a bike rack. Umm.. yeah maybe this will be my task this week.

Sat morning I woke up at 6:30 and loved seeing this in the morning!

Sun Rise
I was soon out the door for a nice 5 miler in attempt to beat the heat. Wrong it was still really hot out at 6:30 in the morning. It was so nice to run somewhere new check out the area! Plus running on the boardwalk and having the ocean breeze on you was awesome! I also got a chance to try out my new watch! I still really have no clue how to use it. Reading instructions might be a good idea, right? 

Running on Boardwalk

How do I work this?

I'm hot after my run

After my run we headed down to the beach were I had my breakfast of champions: Fritos and a beer!

My poor water bottle
Later in the day, Jason and I went for an hour bike ride. We should have wrote up a cue sheet before heading out, but we just winged it and ended up not finding the best roads to ride one. Never the less I was happy to get out there and ride 13 miles :) I wish we had more time, but I'll take it.

Sunday ...well Sunday was suicide Sunday at the Star Board. Umm ..9 am drinking ...working out just wasn't going to happen!

I think this picture says what my sunday was about

Make your own Bloody Mary!

Monday we left the beach around 1 and sat in stupid bay bridge traffic for hours. I basically crashed when I got home and sleep 9 hours lastnight! Sleep is awesome!

After two days of doing nothing and eating my face off I am ready to get back to eating right and working out. But, what the heck happened to the weather? It's so hot out!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Oh suicide sunday! so fun but so dangerous.

  2. haha, I love your recovery breakfast! That sounds like an awesome and well hydrated weekend :)

  3. It sounds like you had a great weekend! I'm hoping the weather calms down a little bit soon, this heat is crazy!

  4. beer in the water bottle = awesome.
