I hope there is some relaxing time. I could put in some overtime but I haven't made up my mind on that yet. Might go buy a laptop today. Definitely got in a little workout.

6.5 miles

109¢ (37 coins) & 1 yuan China (1 coin)

59º & sunny at 0700

New Balance 890 v5 Green #1

I think that is the most challenging coin combination I've seen.

I hope you get to relax.

Pretty pysched at the moment. I might regret it later, but now I'm pysched.  Ran my furthest post surgery and in over a year. Was going to run outside, but t-storms in the area put me at newgym on the TM. Did a walk/jog short w/u outside and then I ran 13.1 miles in a little under 95 minutes :grin: I sweat like a demon and it was very hard mentally, but not too horrible.  Then I did a video called "Dirty 30 Extreme." 30 min. of weird (hard) compound movements. Last bonus exercise was a treat. Push-up position with one 10# wt in one hand. Then raise opposite leg up and weighted arm straight out to side, then crunch them in together. Repeat for 1 min. Fun. now I'm content in my recliner happily eating my crap breakfast and will make peanut butter balls shortly. Soccer later if it doesn't storm.

Sorta cool... For a dinky city (40,000) we have had a lot of NFLers. We currently have 3 (that I know of).  2 of them went as first round picks last year. They are all brothers. :wink: but DS2 had a sleepover at a friend's house yesterday. Said friend lives in the brothers' old home. Supposedly, their little hand prints are somewhere. I told DS2 to get me a pic, but he probably "forgot." DH is a colleague of the brothers' mom. Super nice family...

Very hardcore workout :shocker!:

I think today will be a laid back kind of day.  It's been raining since last night and while one forecast indicates it will stop in a couple of hours, it will return early in the am.  I'm supposed to do a 45 mile bike ride with a few others tomorrow but they will call it off if it's raining and that seems to be pretty certain.  So, today will be a n off day workout-wise.  I'm covering 3 spin classes for other instructors next week so with those plus my regular 3 I have some class profiles to design...a good job for a rainy Saturday.

Rainy and weekend shouldn't be together.

Will today be a relaxing day? Likely quite relaxing after our 14km run...Molly and me.

Working/errand day? I am entertaining a millennial this weekend.  I'm hoping looking for bears later today will be an "errand" worth pursuing if they ever wake up (yesterday was 10:30am)

Workout day?   Oops....I guess this is where we should have put the 14km run

All of the above? Yes:hug:

Had a stressful week that ended with my office (I'm remote) having no power Friday morning.  Tried the usual fixes and tests with the circuit breakers. I finally ended up with my recently cleaned up office now a mess again as I pulled my desk away from the wall and connected an extension cord and a power strip trailing into an outlet in the hall.  Lost 1:45 minutes of work time so ended up working until 6:30 which was no fun, but I got a lot done since no one was around to bother me after about 2 pm. (Lots of people leave early on Fridays.).

Did 6 this morning. Very easy pace with a couple of run/walkers in the group.

Tomorrow I have a 10K. Sounded like a good idea when I signed up,  but I have a 1/2 next week in New Mexico. I"m excited about the 1/2.  I don't plan to race the 10K-at least I don't think so.

Mild stress day. : pbbt: I did get in another whopping 20:00. It's still to be determined if I'll beat my calf trouble but not following a traditional walk/run method means relying on my inhaler less. Often, when I slow to walk, my breathing becomes difficult. Eliminating walk breaks lessens the number of times I use it.

Taking a break from reading. I just finished a section on sealing integral ("wet wing") type fuel tanks. :happy:

I got some watering and weeding done earlier and will go back out when it cools off.

4.6 miles running and an approximately 15 mile bike ride to and from the Badger game with a friend.

Relaxing day......started with 8 miles in the POURING rain. I had no plans to meet anyone, but ran into a neighborhood woman early in the run, and did about five miles with her. I finished up in time to make it to 9:00 am boxing class. Came home, started some chicken chili in the crockpot and watched a movie on Amazon. (Grand Budapest Hotel.....a Wes Anderson flick which was super, positively wonderful!)

We are having dinner with some friends tonight at a tavern where we will watch football.
