Man do I ever love three day weekends! I slept in late today, had an unsuccessful run, took the dog for a walk, went to the movies with my fiance (paid for with a gift certificate) and then went to a pub for a beer and some appetizers (we had a 50% off coupon). Sounds like a perfect day to me! Now I’m home on the couch trying to decide which movie to watch.
An Unsuccessful Run
I say my run was unsuccessful because I had a severe leg pain during it, causing me to have to cut it way short. It’s an old injury that usually rears it’s head when I start clocking significant weekly mileage. I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed but I do know that under no circumstances am I going to try and run through it. I’ve tried that before and the injury always wins. If I have to miss the half marathon then so be it, dealing with this injury properly is the most important thing right now.
Finally, I got some awesome mail this week! As some of you might have noticed, I tweeted earlier today that I received some books in the mail to review. I just finished reading Andrew Hallam’s Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School (review to come) so I’m happy to be able to continue to geek out with Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s latest books. Hopefully the rest of this long weekend turns out to be as great as today was!
