Whirlwind Weekend

Man what a weekend! I am exhausted! My poor husband, I slept almost the entire drive home last night. I had so much fun this weekend!

I learned that my addictive personality also applies to games where you roll up "stuff". Thank goodness we don't have a playstation 2 at home or I would never train. I would play We love Katamari all day and night!

I got to ride my bike Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

I got to run with a bunch of friends at the marathon and cheer to my hearts content!

I got to track my friends as they raced the Wildflower triathlon! Great job to all of them, looks like that run course was pretty brutal!

I got to play 4-square for the first time in my life. (I know I know what hole did I grow up in?)

We had much fun hanging out with C and J and ate at some fabulous restaurants. I am super stuffed still.

Training damage this weekend. 3 bike rides totaling around 43 miles
One long run up and down the hills of Cinci 2.5 hours. So maybe 15-16 miles?

I think I am taking a rest day today!

Fun pictures of my RBF meetup and the weekend to come soon!

Congrats to Rae and Brent on an awesome half, to my SERC and CTC peeps on an awesome full, and to my tri peeps who raced in Wildflower or at the local Du this weekend. Good job to all!

The best kind of weekends are the ones you need to rest up after! And, to think you got all that training in too!

DaisyDuc said...

Dang, you fit so much more in than my usual Cinci trips which consist of eating, drinking and sleeping!

No wonder why you were tired!

4-Square. Lord, haven't heard that one in a while. What I remember from grade school is how you could make any game more violent. We were such hooligans. Glad you had fun whilst getting in some good training. And thanks for the kind words on my blog. I've finally received a diagnosis and I'm on the road to recovery. Yippee!!!

Congrats on...what, Cincinnati this time? Did you snore while he drove? It'd help if you did.

i loved four square! and all the dorky terms. no slams! only 2 second bobbles. then as a teacher there were more terms. something about a time bomb, i don't know. i just thought the squares looked awfully small... i didn't remember them being small.

sounds like you had a great time at the flying pig. welcome back home.

Rae said...

You are such a machine!! I love it. I'm so glad we caught you up on the hill!! Thanks so much for running with us. I look so cold in that pic, HA!

Tammy said...

Um, what's four-square?? *she says from an even bigger hole*

I love Indian food... drool.

So cool you met Rae and Brent... they are the first peeps I left comments for way back in the day. haha... last summer/fall.
