Happy Friday! I had another busy week that has left me feeling pretty tuckered out so I am very glad that it's the weekend! Here's how my week shaped up!
The high of my week was going out to dinner with another couple. They treated us to dinner as a thank you to Phil for mowing their lawn/watching their house while they were in Europe for 2 weeks. It was fun to catch up with them and hear all about their trip - which included some time in Paris!
The low of my week was more sleep issues... This is getting beyond old. I do not know how it is possible to be so exhausted but sleep so poorly. One night I got a whopping 2 hours of sleep. Here's hoping things start to improve soon as I'm really struggling with the sleep deprivation.
A book I am reading is The Three Weissmanns of Westport. It was recommended to me as a book that would count toward the "retelling of a classic" reader harder challenge category as it's a play on the story of "Sense and Sensibility," which I have not read but might read to fulfill the "written before 1850" category.
A recipe I made was Cajun Chicken Pasta which turned out pretty well. I left the cream cheese out as I didn't feel like buying any (I never eat cream cheese) and I also skipped the mushrooms since Phil doesn't like them (boo!), but it still tasted pretty good!
For my workouts, I
ran with my club on Monday, swam with Phil on Tuesday, and ran with my club on Wednesday. I didn't feel great yesterday so took an extra rest day and today will also be a rest day but tomorrow I will run 18 mile and on Sunday I will do my last long bike ride before the triathlon, which is next Sunday!
The best podcast I listened to was the "Fighting Cancer"
episode of TED Radio Hour. It was interesting and encouraging to hear about the progress being made towards fighting this awful disease.
The best money I spent was on the registration fee for a trail run that I will do with Amber when I visit her next month! And the best part is that it was only $22 - if only more races were that cheap!
My plans this weekend include happy hour with a former co-worker tonight followed by a night in with Phil, running with my club tomorrow morning, going to Music Man with Phil's mom tomorrow night (which I am really excited about) and not much else besides that although I know I'll still fill my time!
Have you made any new recipes lately? What was the high of your week?
