Wow. This weekend. What a gas! The weather was lovely and my hip on my left side was FINALLY almost all better. I actually walked 2.18 miles on Friday night and tried to run little parts of it and didn't hurt too badly.
8 am - watch the elite women's world championship cyclocross race. It was incredibly close.
9 am - read my book and drink tea.
10 am - go to walk my 2.18 mile route and end up running the whole thing with almost no pain. Yea!
11 am. Run errands. go to bank, go to Can Shed and turn in recyclables for money. Go to the recycling place to get rid of glass that aren't refundable. Go to Prairie Lights and get my 4 books for the month. I got some really good ones, so I was pretty excited.
12 pm - We did a few things around the house and then got ready for a bike ride. Hooray!
1'ish pm. - We took off toward Solon, which is a very hilly ride. I hadn't ridden those hills since September, and apparently, I've lost a little fitness since then. It was beautiful and the weather was lovely and it all made me so very happy.
2:30'ish pm - Arrive at Big Grove Brewery and have some amazing food and a couple of beers and half-watch the Iowa State basketball game and text Coadster my condolences after they lost.
3:30 - Ride home in more bucolic scenery and unseasonably wonderful temps.
A little before 5 - Get home, John washed off our bikes while I bathed, I cleaned up stuff in the kitchen while John bathed. Watch an Irish movie called, "Jimmy's Hall" and eat grilled peanut butter and jelly.
9'ish pm - Go to sleep and have lovely dreams of running and biking and food and beer and books and movies. Ahhhhh.
Sunday was another great day. We watched the professional men's world Championship cyclocross race and then we were going to run, but it was raining, so we swam laps instead. After we got home, the rain had stopped, so we both went on our respective runs. I was able to to another 2.18 miles with no damage to my hip.
We were supposed to go bowl with our RAGBRAI group and we were running just a little late, when we heard a loud crashing sound. We both assumed it was the cats, because it usually is...This time, we were wrong. The walter filter under our sink, cracked and fell and all the cold water came rushing out. Nice. John turned off the water, we cleaned it up with towels and then we headed out to bowl.
|My friend Dawn got a score and was very happy.|
|My friend Burne just missed scoring 100 and he was woebegone.|
