Manly Man weekend
This coming Saturday i’m throwing a little get together for my “movin in” party. This was more for the fact that it would force me to finish painting my apartment since the living room sat unfinished for well over a month. So this past saturday i went ahead and spent the afternoon finishing painting the walls white, and finally putting away all the paint cans lying around the house. I even went out and bought a new toilet seat because the old one always felt like it was just going to slide off the bowl. This was no easy task either because one bolt seemed to build up a lot of rust around the nut, and the only way i could get the darn thing off was to take a box knife and basically cut the plastic nut right off. I had to give myself a pat on the back for that one.
Also on Friday what started off as a simple 2-3 mile run ended up becoming a 5 mile, 50:30 minute marathon. After work Joy and I met up and went down to Santa Monica Beach, and ran south towards Venice pier, which ended up being about 2.75 miles which is pretty close to the 3.1 miles 5k distance. We decided to go all out and get to 3.1 miles and ran back towards ocean, and finished at about 29 minutes. Since it was getting late, and we were so far out Joy decided we should just run back to the car. She has certainly passed me up on the running scale, i was trailing her for a good 20 feet by the end of it. It was definitely a good sign, since there are only 14 weeks until the half’er arrives.
