On Friday afternoon my husband and I met up with some friends and headed over to New Orleans for a couple of nights of fun. Our #1 agenda was to see Mumford and Sons. If you don't know them, you need to. They are amazing to say the least. Before the concert we ate at an Italian/pizza place and it was so good but we all smelled like garlic butter afterwards! After dinner, we went to the venue to wait in line and froze out butts off.
After the concert we went out and eventually met up with Calee. She and some of her classmates from Alabama were down for the Bama and LSU game. It's always great seeing my wonderful friend!
Saturday afternoon we went to Cafe Du Monde for a beignet and delicious coffee. We walked and shopped around a bit and then went for dinner. Everyone else stayed out quite a bit later than me and my hubby because we had lots to do today. Maybe we're just an old married couple now :) Actually, I knew I had to run 16 miles and he had to work. So, we were smart and got ourselves a good night sleep!
Today's 16 miler wasn't exactly fun, however. There were a few things working against me.
1. It was 1:30 p.m. when I started so I already was tired from getting up early and the drive.
2. I was all alone! I had no one to chat with and pass the time.
3. My ipod playlist is boring me to death and I desperately need new running music.
4. I ran the same old route that I always do except today was just over and over and over.
Basically, I was sensory deprived and I was ready to get it over with! I was actually looking forward to my ice bath just because that meant I was done. (I later regretted looking forward to that misery.) I really shouldn't complain. The weather was in the 60s and sunny. My body felt great which is awesome! I was just glad to be finished and have a rest day tomorrow. Don't worry, I learned my lesson last week and I will take a real rest day!
I hope you all have a great week!
