Weekend by the numbers....non-training edition

I started thinking about my Memorial day weekend and realized I did do more than just train. Actually Aimee did alot while I was training. So here are the non-training numbers......

2 - hours chatting with our neighbor, Kim
1 - boxes of Mac 'n Cheese for a quick dinner
8 - hours of sleep that night

3 - miles Aimee ran before cheering her friends at a local running race
1 - garden completely prepared and planted by Aimee while I was riding my bike
2 - lobster tails cooked for dinner
1 - bottle of champagne used in preparing dinner and drinking during dinner
5 - tiki torches bought at Home Depot
8 - tiki torches planted in the ground and lit for a quiet evening on the back porch

6 - miles Aimee ran with friends in Bay Village, I joined by riding my bike easy
45 - minutes I was able to lay down while......
60 - minutes it took my awesome wife to cut the grass, what a saint

3 - hours Aimee did gardening at her dad's
3 - number of burgers cooked for lunch
2 - number of bratwurst cooked for lunch

Wow.... it really shows how busy the weekend can get when training is mixed with life.

I'm fortunate to have a great IronMate that helps me during this monster training.

Sounds as though both Aimee & you had a wonderfully, busy weekend! It was wonderful you can share so much together!

Life is training, but begs the philosophical question training for what?

Way to make sure that 'emotional bank account' in your marriage doesn't get overdrawn - you are a very wise man. ;)

Dude, blogger is so messed up! Your "Feel Good Inc" video is mixing with some ZZ top. The combo is quite disturbing, if I do say so myself :P
