We made it through another week and the weekend is here!
I really shouldn’t complain too much about my week since I had Monday and Tuesday off so I only worked three days, yet I still found myself looking forward to Friday.
Since a bunch of my favourite shows are on on Thursdays I find Thursday to be a pretty awesome day as well! For some reason I like to pair my favourite shows with a yummy dinner on Thursday, so I whipped up this pasta and served it with a side salad and some wine (half a bottle of wine each, to be exact). Fall perfection. (Thanks Heather for the pasta suggestion!)
I’m thinking of tossing on my running gear for a short and easy run after work today. I’ve been taking it easy since my race on Sunday and have been feeling really good, so I think it might be time to get a little bit of exercise in and see how my body really feels!
I thought I’d really enjoy three weeks of no running, but I miss it already! Heck, I’m even starting to think about when I want to run my next marathon. Oh my. Runners are crazy!
(I’m maybe kinda thinking of running the Calgary Full in May and might have signed up for a RunKeeper plan for that race. Maybe.)
Since this has been a short week for me, and I’ve barely been home, I don’t have much else on the go, so I’ll let y’all dive right into some links I loved this week.
