Finally I have a little free time to blog! Gotta love weekend posts that no one reads anyway. But that might make my MIL happy, not that she knows about this blog. But first, let’s get the running stuff out of the way.
Thursday night, I went to the gym to do a tempo run on the treadmill. Just beat the storm.
I did 6.3 miles in 60 minutes that felt pretty good.
- Mile 1: 10:00
- Mile 2: 9:41
- Mile 3: 9:23
- Mile 4: 9:05
- Mile 5: 1/2 8:49 – 1/2 8:57
- Mile 6+: 1/2 9:41 – 1/2 9:23
I tested out my new running shorts. They are a win.
I also tested out some new ear buds I bought the other day.
The regular iPod buds don’t stay in my ears. And the headphones I have that I love make me look like a tool.
The new ones fit inside your ear so they stay in pretty well. I had to adjust them a few times, but a few times in a full hour of running isn’t too bad. Have any of you used these type of ear buds before? It’s like that cloudy hearing you get when your on a plane that’s landing. You can hear your breathing and footsteps. It’s super annoying. I suppose I could try cranking the volume next time, but I also want to be able to hear when I’m 40. So, the search for headphones that I love and make me look like a supermodel continues.
Once I find these, I’m getting them.
Now on to yesterday.
The hubs and I went to a belated Father’s Day lunch with the FIL and MIL.
Blurry is as good as it’s gonna get with this one.
We ended up at Joe’s Crab Shack, which none of us had been to before.
The interior was fun. There was a lot of fishing type stuff hanging on the walls and from the ceiling. You could even read cartoons and sayings on the tables. This one made me giggle like a 2-year old.
(Had to fix the speech bubble cuz it was barely legible.)
Hubs and I have been wanting to replace the light fixture by our front door with something nicer for awhile now. We were super excited when we found the perfect one.
For lunch, hubs ordered the Classic Steam Pot. This reminded us of our friend Steve’s cooking. He’s awesome at making these low country boils, so hubs couldn’t pass it up. I’m getting that bad boy next time because it looked delicious.
I had the blackened mahi sandwich with hush puppies and fries. Only the healthy stuff for this girl.
Before our food came out, our waitress, Rebecca, put a bib on the hubs. He REFUSED to let me take a picture of him in it. Rude.
That’s when I found out something magical. Like, dwarfs and unicorns frolicking under a rainbow magical…
My MIL will pose with anything.
How can I have known this woman for 9 years and just found this out? I think a wonderland of photo opportunity has just opened itself to me. She told me to “delete the bad ones.” Yes. I’ll go ahead and do that. Or not.
I didn’t leave her out in the cold though. I did my own share of posing.
Eating a hush puppy held by a crab claw. I can go ahead and check THAT off the bucket list.
Lunch just isn’t lunch unless you play with your husband’s food. (Note to wives everywhere: Husbands love this.)
This morning, I did a 12 mile run with my running group. But I’ll leave that for another post.
Do you get along with your significant other’s parents?
