No Running to Report This Week

Unfortunately for this weekly wrap up I don’t have any running to report this week.  I’m pretty bummed about it.  I only got in one 3 mile run this week.  Then I got sick and it’s still hanging on.  It’s been a rough week.  I’m so frustrated that I didn’t get to run.  But, I’m planning on doing week 8 over again next week.  For those of you that follow me, you already know this, but for everyone else – When I picked a training program, I allowed myself 3 extra weeks in case of sickness or injury. Now I’m glad I did that!  I’m slowly feeling better, so I’m hoping that by Tuesday I can start back running. 

Ok, enough about that, I’ve been whining about being sick and not running all week!  You can read about my week here

Since I can’t report any running to you, I’m going to fill you in on what I did do this weekend.  It wasn’t a lot because I am still trying to get well.  But here goes….

Saturday morning, I made a quick trip to Walmart to pick up a few groceries.  I have eaten all of the yogurt and soup in my house, as that was the only thing that sounded good this week.  The picture below sums up why I really dislike going there.  MOVE PEOPLE!!

Those women seemed to have the same list I did, because this was what I ran into on four different aisles!  I didn’t feel good and I had no patience for that! 

After that, I went back home and took a nap.  Then, Jeremy and I went to his basketball games.  The girl’s game was not very good.  Here’s how bad it was.  It was the finals of a high school tournament, and the score at the end of the game was 25-20.  That’s pretty sad when you can’t score more than 25 points in an entire game!

Luckily, Jeremy’s partner’s wife came so I had someone to keep me company.  The boy’s game was a lot better.  It was pretty intense and had a lot of action.  But the best part is that they were over early and Jeremy took me to dinner. 

I haven’t had any appetite all week, but it showed up Saturday night!  We tried a brand new Mexican restaurant called Riviera Maya and it was pretty good.  The food portions were huge, and the prices were reasonable. 

We started with chips and salsa.  My friend’s daughter was our waitress and she brought us some queso to try.  The chips were hot and fresh, and the salsa was homemade.  The queso had a good flavor, but it was too thick for me.

Jeremy tried this hot sauce, and all he could say was, “wow”!  And then he drank his whole glass of water!

For my meal, I ordered a chicken fajita quesadilla.  It was huge!!  The tortilla was filled with seasoned grilled chicken, sautéed onions and peppers, and melted cheese.  It came with rice, sour cream, and guacamole.  I am very picky about guacamole, and this one was super fresh.  It was good, but it had a little too much garlic in it.  I didn’t even make a dent in that plate.  But, Jeremy finished it off for me.

Overall we really liked the place. The only negative we had was that it was extremely unorganized.  There was about seven girls working, and we felt like we had seven waitresses.  There was constantly someone at our table to see if we needed anything.  We did have exceptional service though!  We will definitely go back soon. 

After dinner, we went home and I went straight to sleep.  I woke up around 8 this morning.  I felt great! But, showering and drying my hair wore me out.  I had to lay back down for a little bit.  Then Jeremy and I went out to our land so he could take down some blinds and feeders.  I sat in the truck so I wasn’t out in the wind.

I did get out to take a picture of this little guy that Jeremy found sleeping in the step to one of our blinds.

The weather was perfect today..perfect for running. 🙁 

We spent about an hour at the land and then we went home and I took another nap.  I never sleep this much.  

Now I’m up and am getting ready to fix dinner.  We are having eggs, bacon, biscuits, sausage, and gravy!  Follow me on snapchat or Instagram to see all of the yummy food!  (username:  runandlivehappy)

After dinner I’m going back to bed and hopefully will be well when I wake up tomorrow!

    I’m so sorry your not feeling well! I would not have thought about adding extra weeks to train just in case of something like this so great job there! Hey what is that little critter? Coon? We saw a skunk not something I wanted to see on the way home last night. I hope next week is better for you, get the rest you need I’m hopping over to your Instagram post because I’m hungry! 🙂

      LOL I’m hungry too! That was a rat! It was sound asleep and not bothered by us at all. I don’t know if I would have gotten close enough to a coon to take a pic. I was a little nervous about the rat, but it didn’t wake up.

    It was a very smart idea to build in extra weeks into your training plan. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick and rest is definitely what you need! We love Mexican food and eat way too much of it. My husbands loves HOT sauces and peppers, the hotter the better. I’ll have to ask if he’s tried this one. I hope you are feeling better this week and can get back to your marathon training! The critter looks so cute — but now I see you say it was a rat. Not so cute! Thanks for linking with us Tara!

    I hear you! My week was definitely off, feeling under the weather. I squeezed in one more run than I expected, but didn’t get the mileage I wanted at all. So I can empathize.
    The food you had looks amazing. It’s hard to get decent Mexican food up here in Vancouver.
    Hope you feel better and conquer it all next week!

    I hope you get to feeling better! I know weeks like that make you feel blah, but I bet your muscles loved the break. I try to remind myself all the time good things happen when we rest.
    I love Mexican food 🙂 I could live off Guacamole.
    Take care

    Sorry you were sick, and it sounds like it really wiped you out. I hope you are feeling like running this week. I know I always hate not running even when I don’t feel good enough to run. That is a cute little sleeper you guys found in the blind!
    I love mexican food, but my husband does not so we rarely go out for it, he is a meat and potatoes kind of guy.
    Have a great week!
