Baby time

Today I got to see my friend and her adoreable I repeat adoreable baby. They came to visit today. I know my friend was worried about not being energtic or entertaining enough, but honestly it was good to see her , and her husband and of course baby Katie. You could see the joys of parenthood on their faces even though they were tired. You can also see their obvious love, affection and overwhelming awe and wonderment at their new daughter. I can only imagine what that feeling is , but my guess is that it is the feeling that makes parenting worth it.

I look forward to many fun adventures with little miss Katie. It will be fun to watch her grow up. Its good to have girl to play.

Update on Yesterday's treadmill run

I was worried about running since on Wednesday, I was still sore from our Sunday adventure. The schedule run was 45 minutes at run 4 /walk 1 with a 5 minute walk warmup.

The first 2 four minute segments felt like a struggle, but after i settled in, I learned to use my 1 minute as short as it was as recover time and then actually was able to run a few of the segments comfortably.
One of my big issues was that I was really sweaty, (there were no towels at the gym...see below), but I didn't let that stop me. I luckily wasn't as stiff has i had been earlier in the week.

Total time on Treadmill: 45 minutes/ distance 3.16 miles/ pace 14.30/calories burned 510

I was a little upset that there were no towels at the gym when we got there. Keep in mind that I usually love my gym since you walk in and everyone is nice an friendly and says hello and there is always a fresh stack of towels. On friday nights however, I don't know if it the B-team or what, but they seem not thrilled to be there and would prefer to chat and flirt then fold towels and have them ready. So we walked in no towels, no greeting. 45 minutes later, I go to fill up my water, completely sweaty and in need of towel and sure enough the towels are back there, but not folded, the guys are still busy chatting. I go to the desk and say "excuse me, can I please have a towel" and he hands me an unfolded towel from the bin and goes back to chatting. Ten minutes later when we leave after cleaning the machines and cooling down a bit, both guys are still chatting as I throw my dirty towe l into the basket.
My question is , is it really that hard to fold towels and talk? We pay a membership fee that I am sure pays their wage, wouldn't it be nice if they actually did their job?

Yay its Saturday

How glad am I that it is Saturday. This week seemed really long even though Tuesday was a Holiday. I think its because hardly anyone worked the whole week and it made it harder for me to work.

Its Saturday now though and I get to relax and have fun and not worry about work. My friend and her husband and baby are coming to visit today. I am excited to meet little Katie.

Other than that I don't think we have huge plans for the weekend, tomorrow's run is a 4 mile which after last week seems like nothing. Realistically, I think it will be harder then I anticipate, but I hope not.

I think we are planning to get a pizza and watch movies, exciting married life for you.
