What a great weekend it was not to have to answer to an alarm clock. It felt great to be able to sleep-in until 8am, then sit in my jammies and read the newspaper (well, really other blogs, yes, that is like the newspaper, it is SO!!!).
I finally got to shovel out weeks worth of newspaper, magazines and yes dirt. Laundry has now been caught up and there is food in the refrigerator. People who thought I'd run off the face of the earth heard from me and I even set up a thingy on Face Book.
But what I really want to know is how did I ever accumulate so many pair of Saucony's over this running season. I now have a pair to cut the lawn with, a pair for working in the unfinished basement, my running pair and I just put three pair into the trunk of my car for donation to the local running store, who collects them and sends them to needy people. Poor person who gets my hand-me-downs. I don't have any weird nor wonderful things growing on my feet but still, after all the miles and miles and kilometers I have on those things, well, let's just say I wouldn't wear them if they were given to me!
Weather wise it was a gorgeous weekend, although a little cold and windy for my liking. The fall colours will be at their peak for next weekend's Canadian Thanksgiving.
To get ready for next season's triathlons (why didn't I start doing them when I was younger?), I start my swimming programme tomorrow night. My calendar is taking shape and looking something like this:
Monday & Wednesday ~ Swimming 5:30 - 7:00pm
Tuesday & Thursday ~ biking at the gym right after work
Saturday & Sunday ~ running...(well just enough to keep me going for a Half Marathon in January called the Hypothermic Half, Half Marathon, Ottawa)
(if any of you really, real triathletes have a better plan, please let me know!).
In the middle of all that I'll be busy with my new Silpada Jewellery business and of course work work.
So, there you go, all is quiet on the home front, Lily and I relaxed, played cat games and generally tidied up....
Life's fun if you don't weaken
