Happy Friday! This week once again flew by. I had a busy week and am feeling a little worn out so I am so glad it's Friday today! Here's how my week shaped up.
The high of my week was going on a triple date with two of my closest girlfriends from college. We've been trying to arrange this triple date for 6 months (I'm not exaggerating!) so I am glad we finally made it happen!
The low of my week was another bad night of sleep on Tuesday night. It was less bad than last Tuesday but still a bad night of sleep. The whole going off Ambien thing has gone pretty well but I tend to have bad nights of sleep 1-2 nights a week. It's extremely annoying and frustrating.
A book I am reading is Above Us Only Sky by Michele Young-Stone. I heard about this book on the "All the Books" podcast so I checked out the eBook version of it from my library. So far it's great!
For my workouts, I ran with my club on Monday, did a strength training session on Tuesday, a brick workout (bike + run) on Wednesday, and I ran with Phil last night. Today is a rest day, tomorrow I'll run 16 very hilly miles with my club and then on Sunday I'm planning to swim and maybe go for a longer bike ride if the weather cooperates.
The best podcast I listened to was the "Abdi and the Golden Ticket" episode of This American Life. It tells the story of a Somalian refugee living in Kenya that wins the lottery for a visa to come to America. It was a gripping story to listen to so I highly recommend checking this episode out. It reminded me that I should be so incredibly thankful that I was born in the U.S.
The best money I spent was on the shoes I bought last Saturday. I haven't spent much money this week (which is good!) so will have to count that purchase!
My plans this weekend include very little besides seeing Brandi Carlile on Sunday night! I'm sure we'll stay busy but it's really nice to have a mostly unplanned weekend ahead of us!
What are your plans for the weekend? Are you reading anything good these days?
