Today was my honey’s first day back to school! Since I prepped so much this weekend, I was able to pack his lunch in a jiffy this morning.
Yes, I do pack his lunch. If I didn’t, who knows what he would eat in the school cafeteria!! He knows how to pack his own lunch, but he has gotten too lazy (read: I’ve done it for him for the past two years now); he used to pack his own when he was student teaching in college. I can only dream of the day that I don’t need to pack for him every day!
I got to eat in the dining hall again today…along with over 200 RAs, over 200 orientation guides, a million football, field hockey, volleyball, and other sports players, and the entire marching band!!! It took us almost 20 minutes just to find a place to sit down!!
This is what it looked like when I got home from work today! A slight breeze and mid 70’s weather, what else can you do but run?! I set out to run 3 miles even though my thighs were still killing me from my 99 workout on Saturday. It was too nice not to enjoy it and the freshmen move in tomorrow meaning I need to be at work super early, so no time for a workout in the morning.
Although it really wasn’t too hot and I knew I wouldn’t sweat too much, I couldn’t help but try out my new Bondi Band!
I won it from Heather at Get Healthy with Heather a few weeks ago and this was my first time being able to try it out on a run. It was really awesome! It didn’t move at all and kept what little sweat I had going on from getting in my eyes. The funny thing about it is that I actually wouldn’t run for beer. But I do love pink, so it’s a winner in my book!
Even though my run was interrupted twice by my pup (I run out and back for a mile and when I came back by my house, he ran after me because my honey wasn’t holding onto him! He just wanted to run with mama and daddy couldn’t stop him!!), I still managed to do it at a great pace!
For not having run that far in quite some time, I felt surprisingly strong and fast. I think all of the leg training I’ve been doing (lots of plyo lunges and squats) really helps me to run faster and easier. I just might try running again a few times this week and try to up my distance! We’ll see how ambitious I get 🙂
How was your Monday?
