Sunday’s always come way too fast. Especially after a perfect, perfect weekend.
By the time Friday rolled around, Zach and I needed a break. A serious quiet, relaxing, no thinking, wine and comedy kind of night.
Add take out sushi to the mix and you have a perfect way to wrap up a crazy weekend.
We enjoyed sushi with Hangover III and The Internship.
Maybe it was the wine and the fact that we were just slap happy, but we enjoyed both movies and ended up falling asleep on the couch right after the last movie finished. Upps 🙂
Yesterday morning I got woken up by the husband with a cup of coffee and good conversation.
By 745 I ran downstairs to squeeze in a few miles (2) on the treadmill before heading to the slopes.
Apparently our furball wanted to come with us…I guess she was pouting because her brother always gets to go.
I didn’t bring the camera on the mountain this time, but I did get some fun pictures of our way up. As I mentioned yesterday, there is something SO amazing about ski season, specifically the first day of your ski season.
The conditions were AMAZING for early season skiing and we enjoyed a half day in the snow. Not quite powder — but we’ll get there.
We stopped by Sprouts on our way home to get groceries for the week (best idea ever. Now we can be hermits all day today).
We got home about 3 PM and enjoyed another perfect, quiet afternoon reading.
PS: if you are a woman and a runner, or want to understand women runners, get this book. It’s amazing. I’ll do a review when it’s done.
We ended up having a perfect post-ski meal of kielbasa, crackers, veggies and spinach and artichoke hummus.
We ended our evening watching Finding Forrester (very good), and once again fell asleep on the couch.
I think two nights in a row of falling asleep on the couch means this lady is finding her relaxed zone again. I love it 🙂
Of course, I’ll be back later with my Silent Sunday reacap. I managed to fit in a run this morning (Even though I REALLY wanted to skip) looking something like:
Workout of the Day: 5 miles, speed work
- 1 mile warm up
- 4 * 800 @ 8.0-8.3 pace with 400 recovery in between
- 2 sets of 400 @ 8.1 pace with 6.3 recovery until finished
My graceful self hit the the emergency button ONCE AGAIN on the treadmill mid run this morning, so I have no idea what my total time was, but I felt speedy 🙂
Happy Sunday All 🙂
Question of the Afternoon/Morning: What was the highlight of your weekend? Was it relaxing?

My entire weekend has been perfect. I have gotten to rest and relax more in the last two days than I have in months. I am so not looking forward to tomorrow. I will definitely find that book! Can’t wait for your review.
The only thing getting me through the thought of Monday is the fact that it’s a short week!
I haven’t heard of Mile Markers before – sounds like an interesting read. Thanks for the recommendation, I look forward to your review!
I found it on Monica’s blog (runeatrepeat.com) and am LOVING it!
Sounds like you had a great weekend! highlight for me…my husband coming home and the girls seeing Daddy again…love the look on their faces when they realise he’s home 🙂
I can’t even imagine 🙂
hmmm might have to check out that book, i look forward to hearing a review on it 🙂
It’s a good one!
So jealous of your skiing, I’ve only been once but loved it!
It’s the best 🙂
Mmmmm sushi sounds really good! Love your pics – we usually ski at Loveland when we are in Co Springs to see family.
We haven’t gotten to ski at loveland yet but want to!
So jealous you’ve already been skiing. I can’t wait to go. Highlight of the weekend – relaxing and seeing “Catching Fire.” 🙂
I want to see it so bad!
It was really good, much better than the first. I thought the arena scenes were quite action packed and interesting. They of course changed some things from the book, but I felt they did a good job with it. Apparently the next one won’t be out until November 2014.
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend 🙂
It was perfect!
I also had sushi this weekend!
My weekend was good – it was the wife’s birthday, so we got to eat some bad stuff! Back to salad today!
Happy birthday Wife!
Finding Forrester. What a great movie! Most people have never heard of it before.
It was great!
HAHA I hate when I hit the emergency button! Actually I always rip the emergency cord outa the machine, but same effect…Your weekend looked fabulous!! And I’m quite intrigued by that book!
It is GREAT! I think I’m going to give it away on here when I’m done because I want to share this one 🙂
OOOOO do it!!!
