This weekend was a busy one. The weekend included two birthday parties (one for the nephew, one for the sister), two basketball games, a family meeting with vacation presentations (he he he), two runs, and a lot of Olympic watching.
Friday I ran 6 miles on the treadmill at the gym. It was a good run and I felt really strong.
Saturday morning we ran 12 miles at Highbanks. The first 6 miles were good, but I struggled a little in the second 6 miles, although I turned in even splits. I'm sure not running for a week and having a cold probably had something to do with it.
Today's run is supposed to be 8 miles with 4 at 1/2 marathon pace. It's been snowing this morning, though, so I don't know how that will work out and I didn't bring any shorts to do the run on the treadmill if need be. I don't know what I was thinking. I always pack shorts just in case of having to run inside.
I must say, I have really enjoyed the Olympics thus far. I'm more of a summer sport fan than a winter fan (I don't care for the figure skating) but I have really enjoyed the speed skating and halfpipe competitions. I don't know how many days in a row I'm going to be able to stay up until 11:30 watching the competitions, but I'll sure try.
An update on the airline crap. We booked a flight out of Dayton on Saturday April 15th. The flight doesn't leave all that early (around 8:00) but I think we decided to stay at a hotel in Dayton on Friday night so we don't have to get up in the middle of the night to drive there. I'm glad that stress is taken care of.
It was a good weekend (especially to be a Buckeye--both men's and women's teams won).
