I had an awesome 4th of July weekend. On Thursday I decided to run with a set of people from my running group. Normally I run 2/1 intervals, but a group was planning to run the Pikesville 5K course at a 30/30 pace so I decided to tag along. I've never done 30/30 and it was shall I say different. I didn't really feel like I worked out hard, but I'm not sure if that was the intervals or that I was running with a slower group than normal. Either way it was a nice run.
Friday, I was one of only a few people that came into work, and being that I was caught up on most of my projects, I decided to rearrange my office. Before, my back faced the door which I hate, but after tearing apart my massive corner desks and moving them around, I've got a brand new feel to my office!
Saturday, We had a birthday party/ baby shower thingy with my wife's family. Good food, family, and nice weather made for a great day.
Sunday, I got up and ran a 10 miler. Yup! you heard that right. I really wanted to do a nice long run, and with my last attempt, I decided to try it as a run/walk. I chose 4/1 intervals and it came of awesomely. I'm considering converting most of my runs to run/walks. In a later post I'll go into more detail but for now, just know It helped tremendously on Sunday. The run was great, but I started it too late (around 10:00) and so before i was done the heat kicked in. As I left I passed a time/temp display and it said it was currently 91F. Ouch!
That evening we hit up my work (Fort Meade) for some family fun, food, and fireworks. Quite a nice 4th of July.
Monday, we had a relaxing day with breakfast, shopping, and visiting with a friend. Along with some gardening.
All in all, a great weekend, and to top it off, I only have 3 days at work!
