On Saturday I ran six miles while listening to The Runners World Show podcast about David Willey's BQ. Sometimes when I listen to podcasts while running it slows me down but this one was very inspiring!
Swede and I baked The Best Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins and then while both kids napped I read Celine <-- So good! In the afternoon we visited with my parents and then our babysitter came over while Jonathan and I went out to dinner at Animas Brewing Company where we ordered pretty much the entire appetizer menu.
In the early evening Swede and I went for a bike ride together on the river trail which was really fun. We biked together frequently two summers ago and I'm hoping to do so again this year. And then we had fresh strawberry milkshakes for dessert! A very fun and delicious end to the weekend! Abel missed out because he goes to bed so early but he'll catch up next year.
Upcoming this week:
Mon: Tomato-Basil-Mozzarella Panini
Tue: Thai Red Curry with Vegetables from Cookie & Kate
Wed: Risotto with Parmesan & Roasted Tomatoes from Love Real Food
Thu: Jonathan's Birthday! His request was enchiladas.
Fri: Salmon with Dijon Cream and Garlic Butter Breadcrumbs from How Sweet Eats
This is Week 2 of training for the Thirsty 13 Half Marathon. I'm running four days a week - One easy, one speed (via Kara Goucher's plan), one hill, and one long.
This is a rare-in-the-summer full week of work but I'm planning to crank through a long to-do list before taking the whole next week off for a staycation!
That's all! Tell me - What was the best part of your weekend?
