The Adventures of Half Marathon Training: Day 16

We got out gust little hint of Fall yesterday! It was cool enough for us to turn off the air conditioning and open the windows, and as an added bonus it was kinda rainy all day and that carried over to this morning. πŸ˜„

We’ve still got about 2 months before it actually starts getting cold, but I’ll take some high 60’s for now. Although I absolutely cannot wait for the colder weather! October-January is the absolute best part of the year, in my opinion.

Anyway, my training schedule called for a couple of easy miles today, so that’s what I did. Kinda. I may have gotten a little over zealous going up a few hills, but the weather has got me in such a great mood that I just couldn’t help myself. I’m probably going to regret that during tomorrow’s interval session, but right now I don’t really care.

After my run I went into full on farmer mode. I moved my livestock, fed them, then cleaned out their living quarters (I moved the bunnies outside since it’s stopped raining and cleaned out the dog crate they’ve been staying in πŸ˜‰). Then I spent some time working in the garden.

Unfortunately the damn squash bugs killed ALL of my zucchini plants. Sad face. But the cucumbers and tomatoes are producing like crazy, we have a few watermelons growing on the vine, the carrots are looking good, and my banana peppers look like they’re covered in Christmas ornaments because of all of the peppers. So I suppose some lost zucchini isn’t that bad in the grand scheme of things.

After pretending my backyard is a farm field, I put on my housewife hat and started getting the house back in shipshape. I had the Olympic Games going on the TV in the background and I found Bubbles very intently watching water polo. I guess she’s rooting for team USA.

While still watching the olympics, I got my strength training done. Tried another Nike Training Club workout, this one was tough but still lots of fun! Aaaaand then I needed another shower. Haha I got a little bit sweaty.


So I feel like I’ve had a super productive day!

How was your Monday?

Have you been keeping up with the Olympics?

What even are you looking forward to the most?Β

      Haha we actually had to have Lily help round one up because she had escaped and we didn’t want her to get away. And Dean sits out in the yard and guards them and the garden all day, so I guess we’re pretty much set lol. Hahaha that’s awesome! How did the cat feel about that?
