It seems like the weekend just flew by. I don’t know how I was able to manage all of this activity in addition to going out to play cards once a week. Friday night, I decided to take advantage of the weather and got in a short bicycle ride. Then I took the girls to the park, while my wife picked up dinner.
Saturday morning, I took part in the CMRA Spring Spree 10K in Littleton. This was a fun little event and I even managed to finish in 56:42 which was well ahead of my goal time or 1:00:00. My 10K pace averaged 9:09/mile.
The rest of the day was spent roaming around downtown Arvada and having lunch at Udi’s. That night my wife and I went to see “Chess” the musical at the Arvada Center. I had been hoping to take in a cultural event this year and was not disappointed. The Arvada Center is a great venue and the performance far exceeded my expectations.
Sunday was a day of chores. I had the garage cleaned up on Saturday. The outstanding items on my list were caulking the girl’s bathtub and cleaning up the yard. I never enjoy yard work and the pollen really took its toll. However most of the dead stuff from last year is cleared up. I still have some weeds to pull and will probably buy some fresh mulch this weekend.
I need to start re-evaluating my weekly workouts. I am solid on swim with Master’s swimming on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Running is typically easy as I like to run at lunchtime. However, there are lots of opportunities for group workouts and I am considering joining the CRMA on Tuesday nights and Road Runner Sports on Wednesday nights. Finally the Arvada Triathlon club is trying to start a weekly run. Bicycling is hard for me to fix as well. The Bicycle Village group ride is Saturday mornings. Foothills Running and Cycling Club also does a Saturday ride and a Wednesday night ride. I am still a little uncertain about group rides, but should really give them a shot.
