Hi, friends! How was your weekend? Mine was so, so, so nice. Mal, Murphy, and I traveled up to Maine to visit our friends Dave and Marie (remember them?), who live just outside of Portland. It was so great to catch up and spend some time with them. Mal and I definitely missed them!
Some pics from the weekend…
On Friday afternoon, traffic going north on 93 was a nightmare, so Mal and I did our best to entertain ourselves…
And Murphy, too!
Oregon onesies from Dave and Marie! Mal was so pumped!
Saturday morning breakfast at Dave’s Diner and Marie’s Café: Almond Joy coffee…
And an egg sandwich on a 7-Up Biscuit!
On Saturday afternoon, we headed into Portland to have lunch at Duckfat.
There was about an hour wait for a table, so we walked around Portland and popped into a few shops to kill some time. (FYI: Duckfat was totally worth the wait!)
My lunch: Housemade root beer.
French fries with truffle ketchup.
Tomato and fennel soup. Delicious!
After lunch, we went bowling! I broke 100 on my first game!
Mal and I woke up bright and early on Sunday morning, so we could drive home to do Open WOD 14.5 at our box. Dave and Marie woke up even earlier to make us breakfast before we hit the road. How nice are they!?
Thankfully, we barely hit any traffic on the drive home. Murphy was absolutely pooped after such a fun-filled weekend.
Open WOD 14.5 was awful, and I truly hope I don’t see that workout again for a long, long time, but I made it through the whole thing, which was my only goal. I couldn’t do Burpees, so I did Squat Thrusts instead (and used 65 pounds for the Thrusters).
After the set of 21, I had a disgusting, phlegm-tastic coughing fit in the middle of WOD, and I actually considered quitting because I was so stuffed up and uncomfortable, but I kept trucking along. By the time I finished the set of 15, I knew I was halfway done and just kept moving. I finished in 17:41.
