Whew! I can't believe it's Monday, and I was a little sluggish getting up this morning. Couldn't that alarm have gone off later in the morning (or not at all?).
The weekend started Friday with an eye doctor's appointment, and getting a clean bill of health for my eyes. Yay! My prescription was updated, and I've got some trial lenses. So far so good, but I'll wait a couple more days to order boxes for the year. I was also told I'm a good candidate for Lasik, which I didn't know at all, and haven't considered. I was told my prescription would need to remain the same for 4 consecutive years before being considered, and it's still having tiny changes from year to year. I'm not comfortable about a laser doing surgery on my eyes, but it was good to hear everything is doing well.
Saturday was low key, but I followed my chiro's advice before completing my run, and I did a round of exercises before getting on the treadmill. And guess what? I knocked off 4.25 miles while playing with speed intervals during the first part, then hill intervals during the second part. I felt like I could've run more, but 4.25 is another start, and the furthest I've run since Tink. Now I just need to do it outside, but I'll work up to that.
Since we were getting some sort of front, but the forecast kept changing, I made an Olive Garden recipe in my crockpot, but I tweaked things. I've made it before, but I didn't want to use kale (sorry, not sorry!), and used fresh spinach, and instead of chopped russet potatoes, I wanted gnocchi. Both changes tasted very good, and I even threw in some shredded Parmesan cheese for good measure. It hit the spot, and provided leftovers.
Sunday was busy, and is probably what I'm feeling this morning. Since I played lacrosse in high school and college, I've been following CU's varsity team since their first ever season in 2014. It's crazy how fast the sport is growing in this country. I went to CU's home opener yesterday, where they were playing Northwestern, which has mulitple national championships, and was ranked 9th in the country before yesterday's game. I also got to have a picture taken with Ralphie! Her handlers are very protective of her, and won't let anyone get up and close to her pen. She was there an hour prior to the game before being taken back to her ranch.
The game itself was amazing. CU beat Northwestern in OT, 11-10, and after reading the stats of the game, CU's goalie has 19 saves, and there were 9 lead changes, the most being 2 goals at one time. There was a lot of momentum shifts, and as the game was heading into OT, my heart was pounding and I was shaking. Huh? I'm not even playing! It was a gorgeously sunny day, if a little chilly. After the game, I made hot chocolate once I got home, then completed my chiro exercises. They seem to be working!
