A Pretty Good Monday?

Usually, I am not a fan of Mondays. The weekend is over, 5 days of work ahead, not a good thing. Surprisingly, today was really good! It was nice and sunny, I woke up pretty easily, work went by fast, 2 different sweet girls in my class brought me flowers. One girl picked these from her own garden.

I also had a girl bring me strawberries from her own garden. Speakin of which…more on THAT later! ๐Ÿ™‚
Then I came home, got to see Bobby for a minute before he went to work, ate an early dinner, then took a fabulous nap in my fabulous new bed. I got up and went a neighborhood over for a run. This is the same one I on my long runs in, the one I want to live in one day! I ran 5.25 miles, it was SO HARD, I don’t know why I thought it would be so much cooler at 6:15 than it was at 5:15! it was about 86 and so sunny. I had to walk some but at least I got it done. I probably should have eased into it more after being sick. There is a “beach” area on the lake by the pool and playground and there were all these families out, playing and swimming and having fun, it was just one of those good moments. I will say I was a little jealous I don’t live there and get to go have all that fun! I know it’s far away but here is a pic of the people at the beach.

I got home about 7:30, showered and now I am watching one of my favorite shows, Everybody Loves Raymond. Good day I must say! Hope your Monday was as decent as mine!

  1. I ran at 4 p.m. yesterday and I was planning on running 4 miles, but by the time I hit 3, there was no way I could make it to 4 miles. It felt like it was 90 degrees outside, and I would not be surprised if it was! I am going to try and run tomorrow evening around 6 or 7 and see if that is any better!

    I am jealous of those people on the beach too! Nice job on your long run!

    If I run at lunchtime on Mondays I’m usually ok. Exercise cheers me up (most of the time).

  3. thats a good idea! yum sounds great!

  4. yuuuum…strawberries!
    Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!

  5. Flowers, a comfy bed and a good TV show are sure to cure any Monday Morning blues! For me, I ease into the work week by making something really awesome for breakfast, like french toast. When all else fails, I just remind myself that Friday is on its way!

    P.S. Found your blog from Healthy Tipping Point! =)

    I headed out last night after a really stressful day. I’d mapped out a nice 3 mile run (newbie here, go easy) and then my shin splints started aching about halfway through. Lots and lots of icy hot on my legs today, hoping for a better result tonight when I try it again.

    I try to get my mind off the fact it’s Monday as much as possible, although difficult and depressing when I realize that it truly IS Monday. I dunno that’s a tough question!
