Near Perfect Weekend
Friday I got to work and really didn't have a lot going on, a few meetings to schedule and some training to complete but nothing urgent or important. I was thinking about maybe booking a massage for after work if I could and then I got an email for Daily Deals at the spa I usually go to - 25% off a 90 minute massage at 4:00. PERFECT, as if it was a sign from God that it was meant to be. so, as soon as the spa opened I called and booked the appointment. Then I just needed to get through the rest of the day at work to get there. The massage was perfect. I told her not to be afraid to hurt me and to get in there deep and work sh*t out. She focused on my legs but also did a lot of work on my back and shoulders. I definitely started drooling and almost fell asleep (which means she probably could have used a little more pressure, but I don't know if she was strong enough to).
After the massage, I headed home first stopping at a few stores, looking for a small lockbox to put in the freezer at work because there is a food thief taking things that don't belong to them and I thought it would be funny to put a lockbox in there, but I couldn't find one I liked for less than $20. Got home, had some food and hydrated before hitting the sack to rest up for my long run.
I spent the rest of the day taking an ice bath, hot shower, rehydrating, refueling, grocery shopping, napping, and oh of course bought a powerball ticket because I found money on my run and I always see that as a lucky sign. I went to bed early again because Sunday morning I had booked another skydive (I might have a new addiction).
After I landed I hung out and had a few cups of coffee, chatting with some of the other students and some of the staff. Then I went to Kim's house to visit. I hadn't seen her in a while so it was nice to catch up. I brought some homemade chocolate chip banana nut muffins and played on the swingset with Ryann for a bit. I was starting to crash from the adrenaline rush so I went home and took a nap watching a little football and a little Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark. Pretty near perfect weekend. Only thing that would have made it perfect would have been if I won the Powerball, but I didn't.
20 days to go til Berlin! I might have to sneak in another skydive between now and then, but first I have to run Reach the Beach this weekend, followed by a half marathon on Sunday. Getting in almost all my weekly miles in 3 days should be interesting.
