I am not hitting the gym this morning. In fact, I’m not hitting the gym this evening either. I need a rest day from my weekend. Oh, and there’s the fact that I can barely move my stiff neck.
On Friday, I went out to eat while picking up my race packet. Yup – there’s a pizza place near the running store; it was destiny. I had a local beer, Mecktoberfest, with my roast veggie pizza.
I only had one beer, and I only ate half my pizza. This was will power at work! I was soooooo proud of myself. ”Leftover pizza” is usually unheard of around me.
On Saturday, I ran my 5k. Woop woop! My buddy ran it with me, but we didn’t run it side-by-side. I know I said this was a “fun run” and that pace didn’t matter, but I wore my Garmin anyway.
I did better than expected but didn’t kill it. They don’t have chip times posted yet, but my Garmin said I averaged 8:13 per mile. I’m happy with that, especially considering it took a mile for the crowd to
get outta’ my way thin out a bit.
After the race, I enjoyed a little leftover chicken, pizza, and coffee before getting to work. I had a date with my new sander. It was lunch time when I finally finished sanding one bookcase. Sadly, I still had one more to go!
Needless to say, after a full day of sanding, I was tuckered out. I had a buddy coming over to watch the Clemson game with me that night, so I showered, took a nap, downed a shot of espresso, and was ready to watch the game (with a sleepy kitty and bowl of cookie dough dip, of course).
The next morning, I was at it again. I primed and painted both bookcases. Oh, and I also went to bed at 8:30 p.m. I still have two small dressers to do on future weekends, so I’ll be sure to show before and after pics later. I will say that refinishing furniture’s no joke!
- Did you race this weekend? If so, tell me about it?
- Have you started or finished any ambitious projects lately?
