My parents and I spent a wonderful day in Gloucester. You know how I said yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and perfect? Today even topped that.
But before I jump into the fun part, time for my Sunday Sum-Up:
Monday: Ice storm=skipped workout! I couldn’t even bring myself to drive to chemistry class at 6:45 in the morning. 😦
Tuesday: An absolutely lovely 3-mile run…I’m liking this time change thing which means I can run after I come back from school. Perfect!
Wednesday: A day of studying and exams! I had my kinesiology exam at night which meant not much time to fit in a good workout…it also meant every spare moment was spent with the books.
Thursday: I came t-h-i-s close to skipping my workout. I felt fried from all the exams and quizzes over the week, and with Nicole’s phone call saying she wouldn’t be at the gym due to being sick, I determined that a night off sounded pretty good. But when Matthew came out with his running gear on, I knew I’d better gear up as well. A 2-miler it was…brisk, fast, and energizing.
Friday: My dad and I headed out for a 3-mile run. The weather was perfect (it’s been an awesome week, weatherwise!) Followed by an omelet. Life’s good. 🙂
Saturday: Day 1 of the most perfect weather…my mom and I went for a 3.5-4 mile walk. And later I went for a 2-mile run with the guys (but they went much further.)
Sunday: aka, today! Lots of walking around Gloucester, and a short 1-1.5 mile walk at home.
All Summed Up: 10-miles of running, 4-miles walking + walking around campus.
I was starving by the time we made our way to the Gloucester House today, but still forced myself to take it slow when looking over the menu. Did I want a large salad with grilled shrimp? Or the Angry Shrimp (spicy shrimp with tomatoes with cannellini beans)? Or the stuffed haddock? Ah…life has way too many decision. 😉
The meal started with a side garden salad. I asked for the raspberry viniagrette on the side, but didn’t end up wanting or using it.
