Weekend in Review
It was a fairly busy weekend on both the training and social side of things. Friday night started with going to see the Chronicles of Narnia. I thought they did a pretty good job with this flick. Given its been years since I’d read the book, but from what I can remember they seemed to stay pretty close to the story line. It was an entertaining and enjoyable movie all around. Though more violent then I thought so maybe not one for the very young children. After the movie I met a few buddies in downtown Minneapolis. It had been awhile since I’d been downtown so it was nice to just chill out at a couple bars for the remainder of the evening.
The remainder of the weekend was full of odds and ends. Saturday started with breakfast with some friends and then I headed to the pool to grind out some laps. I swim went fairly well with the main set being a ladder from 50 to 200 and then back down for 1000. I even managed to get in a few flip-turns while I was cooling down. It’s gonna take awhile but I’ll get it down one of these days. Or at least look like I kind of know what I’m doing. Saturday night my roommate and I headed to the Barn to watch the Minnesota men’s basketball team play Michigan. It was fun to watch the game live, but not that impressive of a game overall. Neither team is really great and Michigan ended up winning by a good margin. Which I’m sure made Mouse happy. :)
Sunday brought more fun things like grocery shopping and laundry. After it was clear the Steelers were going to win I headed out for my run. It was a bit windy today so the wind-chill was down in the single digits, but I managed a nice 7 mile run. Again I had to remind myself to go slow which wasn’t helped by the dropping temps. All in all it was a good run and I was able to keep things at a nice “base” pace.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day in the training department. The thought is to make Mondays a hard training day with a swim in the morning and then a spin class at night. I'm not sure how the body is going to react to this, but it should be interesting. I hope you all had a good weekend and that the beginning of another week isn't too harsh on the system...
