I owe a big "thank you" to everyone who shared some insights on my last post! I am going to make an appointment with my doctor and get to the bottom of what's causing my exhaustion.
Last weekend, Matt and I saw his side of the family. This weekend, my sister and her boyfriend came to stay with us for a mini-vacation.
I was supposed to run Saturday morning but woke up to rain, and pre-sunrise rain is a deal-breaker for me. So instead we all slept in and then had a giant brunch of chocolate-chip waffles, bacon, and eggs...all devoured before I got a picture!
|Any guesses what kind of class I've been trying out?|
Steph and I met a couple friends for a workout class. I usually hate classes but it's been nice to try something new and different, and going with friends helps keep me motivated.
After the class, we drove up to meet my parents for dinner at our usual halfway meeting place.
|Most of the family made it to dinner!|
Sunday I successfully got up to run with Kristin. I hadn't run in over a week and mentally I've been feeling really blocked and anxious about all these half marathons I have coming up. I can run a 5k without much training and finish it, but obviously a half is more daunting!
It felt really good to get some distance in. It reminded me that I can still run long. My knees were tight toward the end, maybe because of Saturday's workout, but I felt good overall.
Matt had a SUP race Sunday so we went to watch and cheer him on.
|We watched the race from on a bridge and Matt passed right under us.|
Afterward, Steph and Gordon paddled a bit. (I opted out because there were manatees in the water!)
|Some GoPro action.|

|While they were circling the manatee...|

We finished our weekend festivities with burgers and milkshakes. It was the perfect way to end our Sunday.
Did you have a good weekend?
Does your brain ever get in the way of your runs?
