I got home last Thursday night just in time to attend our gospel meeting at our church. (I spent a little bit of extra time at the Memphis airport visiting newsstands until I found Sports Illustrated--the issue with MSU and Ole Miss on the cover--I found them!) I was weary from traveling, but it had been so, so good to visit with Olivia, even though the visit was brief.
Friday I began my day with a 16 mile run. Not the best idea! I ran two runs of 6 miles and 4 miles on our vacation to Utah, and none, not one mile, until Friday of last week. It had been two weeks since my last long run, and attempting that distance after that long of a break was unwise! I made it fine (just a little bit tired) until mile 10. It was a struggle after that. Leanna and I had planned to run 17, but I could not make it another step. She finished without me. I was sore all Friday and Saturday, but I am feeling much better today.
Here is this week's plan, and I am going to follow it!
Monday: 6 or 9 (depends on how late I stay up tonight catching up on bills, mail, etc.)
Tuesday: 6 or 9 (whichever I don't do on Monday)
I took Sam and Leah to a 2 hour birthday party this afternoon, and while they were there I shopped at Bath and Body Works, Walmart (monthly shopping), Kroger (weekly shopping), and Sam's (just a few things I did not pick up last week during my monthly shopping just a couple of hours before I left on my road trip). I was flying through those stores!
Here is the menu for the week:
Monday: veggie burgers, slaw, baked beans
Tuesday: rice and beans buffet
Wednesday: Julie cooks (I think it's an Indian dish)
Thursday: turkey meatloaves, mashed potatoes, green peas, rolls
Friday: stir fry, rice, spring rolls
Saturday: taco soup
Sunday: pasta salad and fruit salad
