So this weekend was the garage sale. Man, I’ve never experienced something like that before. People are crazy bargainers! I thought that having our nice Starbucks travel mugs at a dollar was a bargain, and when people scoffed, I was shocked! I guess the going rate for those is around 50 cents. We had two tables there that were probably around 500 dollars a piece. We sold both, two for twenty, and the guy haggled over that too! All our clothes were a dollar, and by the end of the day, we basically had everything going for a dollar. We just wanted to get rid of it. It was a good experience overall and we made almost $300 dollars which we are going to put towards our fourth of July party fund. There were some very weird moments of the day though, some guy pulled up with three coolers in the back of the car and came out yelling, Tamales! Tamales! He was trying to sell Tamales at OUR garage sale! We were so confused. We ended the afternoon with the ice cream man going down our street and we both looked at each other and sprinted down the street and got ice creams. What are we? 12?
After our long day on Saturday, I was pretty prepared to get my 10 mile run in on Sunday. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t make that distance, since I haven’t ran that far or anywhere near that distance in over a month, but Sunday morning I got up at 6:45 and took off. I have been working on running new routes and this was kind of an exploratory run. I ran around and found a nice little trailish area along the river bed and then ran to the park and turned around at 5 miles and came back home. It was a great little 10 miler, even though I was a little tired those last three miles. I’m glad I finished though and got it done. It was pretty warm during the run, man I love it when it’s warm though.
Overall, the training last week was a success, with all my runs completed. Today is a rest day, but I might hit up the gym after work and tutoring to work on my arms. Then I have 5 miles tomorrow morning, which is a good way to start off the day. I like running those small distances in the morning. So the weekend was good and I’m back in training mode finally!
