My week was pretty good, maybe even a bit too good. By Friday I made myself rest because I felt like I had pushed it too much and my knees and feet were hurting.
Monday- Rode 9+ miles of hills with Rey in a little over an hour
Tuesday- Ran 3.1 tempo run
Wednesday- Ran approx. 3.5 miles but didn't time or log distance (#runfree4me challenge)
Thursday- Cross training, used the weight machines at the gym on arms and legs, bike for 15 minutes and elliptical for about 8 minutes before I realized I was just too tired and sore and pushing my limit.
Friday- Mandatory rest for me!
Saturday- 5.37 miles in 60 minutes on the TM. Followed by copious amounts of wine...see below!
Sunday- another rest, this time alcohol induced. ;)
Yesterday my BFF and I went to Sip-n-Savor, possibly the only cool yearly event in my little town of 4000. It's a wine & beer tasting even for the local Wineries in Missouri. I got my run out of the way in the morning because I thought I might not feel like a run today. I was correct! It was a fantastic run, in case anyone is wondering. 5.37 miles in an hour. I was stiff starting out and my knees were a bit sore, but it was a nice long run for me. Dallas ran as well and seemed to have a good run. I was really happy for him that he pushed past whatever has been holding him back!
But I digress...back to wine!
My house is about .5 mile from Main Street where the event was being held, so my BFF, Hope, came to my house and we walked up to town. It was unseasonably cold for May, but we warmed up quick, I ended up putting my coat in my bag 20 minutes after we arrived.
For $20 you get a wine glass and you go around town to different businesses that host different wineries.
This is Main Street of my little town:
We had a fantastic day, tried lots of different wines
We took the free shuttle around to one of the wineries and a few other businesses that were doing tastings and met some really fun people. We even tried some beer from the beer tent...yep, that's beer in our wine glasses! Apparently (according to Hope) I must have been flirting to get one of the beer servers to give me a whole bottle of beer. I didn't even ask, he just handed it to me! LOL
You can tell we've had a bit compared to the first picture!
So much fun, but oh my body cannot take drinking anymore. I don't know if it's my age or what, but I'm glad this event is just once a year because I may not want another drink until then! Hopefully I'll be back to feeling normal tomorrow when the new week starts back up!
Do you feel like as you get older you can't really drink alcohol? Do you have any fun yearly events in your home town that you look forward to each year?
