1. Furlough. I haven't been doing anything super fun during my time off of work. Honestly? Most days have consisted of lounging around in my pajamas until I change into gym clothes and head over to the YMCA in the early afternoon. So far I've made four days in a row and have really enjoyed my time as a Y-rat. There's been four runs (15.05 miles) followed by four short cool downs on the bike (18 miles). What has been lacking has been the strength training and stretching. I'll get to that in February.
2. Yesterday my YMCA trip was late in the day because I spent most of the day waiting for my brother to come down and deliver me a new (to me) TV. I still had my 24-inch TV from college. About a week ago, his wife told me they were replacing their 32-inch TV in the basement and they asked me if I wanted it. Ummm, an upgrade? Yes please. Free TV? Not going to argue with that. My cousin even gave me a TV stand, but I ended up going over to Wal-Mart and getting a cheap stand because the one from my cousin was a bit too wobbly for my liking. Trust me. The last thing I wanted to do was get woken up in the middle of the night because of a loud crash that killed not only the TV stand, but also my (new) TV and DVD player.
3. It's almost been a week and I still haven't gotten you guys my race report from the indoor triathlon last weekend (I know, I have no excuse since I haven't been working). I wasn't able to make it to the awards ceremony and I have to check on something. Hopefully I'll have a report up for you guys by the end of the weekend or Monday at the very latest!
Hope you all are having a good week!
