Well, here’s another non sequitur for us, because I’m making my Saturday post on Sunday morning. Once again, I offer no excuses. As Popeye said, I yam what I yam and that’s all what I yam. I’ll try for a Scattered Saturday post, although, full disclosure: I did not do that much.
We got up extra early, due to insomnia, but I did not feel too ill-used by my body. I was looking forward to going for a long run, which I attempted to do after coffee. The run did not feel as good as I had hoped at first. I wondered if I would make it for 35 minutes, which was my goal (to equal my last longest run and increase it on Sunday). I ran up a pretty good hill, felt even worse, kept going anyways, and eventually got into it. I ended up going for 35 minutes and feeling pretty damn good about myself. Yay me. I feel I am in 5K shape now.
After a shower, my recovery beverage of chocolate milk, and a protein-filled breakfast of a cheese omelet, I wrote some post cards. Steven nicely agreed to walk to the post office with me. It was still pleasantly cool, although hot temperatures were predicted. It felt SO GOOD to walk! I love walking! We passed by the Historic Four Corners, and I mentioned to Steven that I had used pictures of the 1834 Jail and County Courthouse in a recent blog post. He had read the post.
Other errands we ran included a trip to the bank to deposit a check, a visit to Hannaford to purchase coffee, a graduation card, and a gift bag. Back home, I took a nap, because of getting up so early. Then I had to put on a mini fashion show for Steven. The reason for the show was that I had to figure out what to wear to a cousin’s graduation party we wanted to attend. After two or three changes of heart as well as shirt, my decision was made.
To get to the party, we had to drive to Rome to catch a ride with Mom and Dad to Baldwinsville. It is always nice to spend a little time with my parents. Additionally, they played blues music in the car on the ride. I love the blues!
It was a very enjoyable Saturday. I only feel bad that I waited till Sunday morning to make this post. However, these things happen and we must make the best of them. I hope you’ll all tune in later, when I make my Wrist to Forehead Sunday post.
