In-between jobs

Thanks to all who pass along birthday wishes on Facebook & email. It's been another fun year.

For my birthday I slept in until 8am since I'm in my week between the end of school and the summer elementary camp. Might as well take advantage of it while I can.

Speaking of birthdays, Beth and I are so sneaky (a.k.a. cheap) when it comes to finding birthday deals. If you sign up your email for different places, you can get free stuff. Here's our list of items that we took advantage this week (and most that Beth used last month):

Monday - Qdoba (free burrito) and Cold Stone Creamery (free 'like it' with one topping)
Wednesday - Dad came up and took us out to dinner (mom was working in NJ)
Today - Red Robin - free burger and small sundae
Saturday - Hoss's - $5 off entree

With being done with school, my training has picked up this week. Tuesday we did this crazy running tempo run. Something like 15 min warm-up and then 9 min hard, 4 min hard, 3x2 min hard, 7 min hard, 3x2 min hard. Whew!!!! The killer was the hills that we ended up going up for the 7 min hard part. I've also done swimming and biking.

With the biking, Beth had an extra bike computer that I put on my bike and used for the first time this week. Wow, the possibilities of analyzing the data that I get--especially if I start using a heart rate monitor. As I was on the bike, I kept on looking down at my cadence and average speed and current speed. It's a good thing I was back on country roads without cars because I was weaving back and forth as I kept looking at the bike computer.

That's about it from here. Hope the storms in Pittsburgh yesterday didn't affect people too much.

I was wondering if you were going to go to Hoss's. Gotta work the deals! Sounds like a good birthday.
