What a weekend. I skipped a post yesterday, kindof a mental rest day from the blog. So Friday I rented three movies for the weekend. Aimee and I watched Wedding Crashers and enjoyed a relaxing evening on the couch.

Saturday morning I wastched movie number two, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, during my brick (2 hour ride, 30 minute run). A good action movie is always on tap for a long ride on the trainer. But then the run is always outside regardless of the weather.

Aimee and I relaxed again Saturday evening with a nice dinner and movie number three, 40 Year Old Virgin, again resting the body on the couch.

Wedding Crashers and Virgin are very funny movies and don't require too much thought. Smith was a decent action movie.

Sunday was nice because we slept in. At least as late as our dog Snickers would let us. Nothing like the sound of a dog puking the get you out of bed fast. It was 7:00AM anyways.

We were able to sleep in because we were running in a 10 mile race which didn't start until 2:00PM. How nice is that since we had to drive 2 hours to get there. As we drove west from Cleveland the weather started to clear and blue skies appeared. The only obstacle was the stiff wind from the southeast.

I was using this as a training run for my marathon. Coach said to keep my heart rate in low Zone C and see how I do. Low C felt great. I was keeping pace between 7:00 - 7:30/mile pace and very comfortable. I pushed the last 3 miles to push my legs while tired. I finished with a 1:12:27 for 10 miles. Very satisfied with the effort.

Hope everyone else had a good weekend as well.
