Today I enjoyed my first day off work in…12 days? I think that’s right. It’s all blurring together. And like your typical crazy runner, I decided to wake up early on my day off to go pound the pavement. Once again, I am so thankful for our Island Running Club because without the accountability, I doubt I would have made it out there. Just look at this awesome group!
Plus three others not in the photo. Our little group is growing! I set out this morning, not really sure what to expect. I haven’t run in two weeks so I wasn’t expecting much – but I am always hoping for the best.
I somehow managed to run the first two miles without walking. That’s a huge accomplishment for me! My pace wasn’t the best – right around 11min/miles – but I’ll take it. I left my iPod at home and tried to just enjoy the run. And I really did.
The third mile was much more difficult, but not impossible. The warm weather is back here in Florida, and the humidity was in full swing! Hoping for a little cooler temperatures next Saturday for our 5k…
After our run, my sister mentioned that she had a trip to Ikea planned for the afternoon. Ikea? Hmm. I’ve never been. And I had no plans. Sounded like a fun adventure to me!
That place is CRAZY. It’s like Disney World meets Target. It was almost tough to even see everything because there were SO many people there!
I did manage to spend plenty of money (how do little things add up so quickly??) and I fell in love with these bathroom vanities. I’ve mentioned before that we are renovating our bathroom and I think these would look great!
But I’ll save that purchase for another day.
See you next time, Ikea!
Are you an Ikea shopper? What has been your favorite purchase there?
