It's Monday, and it's my mom's birthday. Happy birthday Mom!!
How was everyone's weekend? I actually ended up doing a bit of shopping this weekend. After thinking about new shoes, I sprung for them early, even though I haven't filed my tax return yet. My current shoes are still going strong, but it'll be good to have another pair in the rotation. Actually, it'll be good to have a rotation. I usually don't have more than one pair. There's a great local store in Golden where I got the shoes, and they have all kinds of Oiselle gear. I had to remember I was only there for shoes and Nuun.
My Girl Scout cookies were delivered Saturday as well. Maybe it's a good thing I got a new pair of shoes. Some of the boxes are for my mom, so I have those in the freezer to keep until she picks them up. So I have 1 box of peanut butter sandwich cookies (which I've already opened), two boxes of thin mints, and 3 boxes of Savannah smiles. Those are my favorite.
The rest of Saturday was spent doing my run, and finishing the book I was reading. I got to 3 miles for the first time since Vegas, and the last half mile hurt. Mentally I wanted to stop at 2.5, but I want to get to 3, and I forced myself to do it. Hopefully now I can get to that distance easily in training.
Sunday was cold! I woke up and it was 14 degrees and snowing! We didn't get any accumulation, but the system seems stuck over us. My weather apps kept showing it was going to move on and give us sunshine. We didn't get sun until 1:30, maybe. I got my errands done, including getting the shirt I wanted from Dick's Sporting Goods, and made sure I got soup for lunch. Soup always tastes great when it's that cold out.
My Sunday workouts were biking 20 minutes, and then Pure Barre, with my own core work. Hopefully I'll have done a good job with my muscle strength for all the hill work I need to do with training.
