I'm feeling better now, so here's a little bit of what I've been doing. First, half marathon training is still on track and I made every workout on the original schedule, but I tweaked some of the original cross training that I planned.
Monday - Run (5 miles Easy/7 minutes Fartlek)
Wednesday - Run (5 miles Easy/7 minutes Tempo)
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Run (9 miles Easy/7 minutes Tempo)
Sunday - Run (5 miles Easy)
Saturday was super busy since I had a long run and then I needed to be at the SF Ferry Building in time to check that my Clipper card was loaded for the ride over to Sausalito for the art festival. Good thing I got there early and checked it because the line for the machine was crazy later and we barely made the ferry as it was.
I know you're asking why we almost missed the ferry if I got there so early (11:10AM for a noon ferry). Well, my friend and I waited in line for 40 minutes (yes, 40 minutes) for lattes from Blue Bottle. It was delicious (and pretty....see below), but seriously, I would never have waited if we hadn't been waiting for a noon ferry.

We had to stand on our way to Sausalito because the ferry was PACKED, but it was only 30 minutes and the weather was nice.
|Not the best shot, but it was crowded & we were moving!|
After wandering around looking for food (I was starving after a 9 mile run and only some chocolate soy milk for recovery), we settled on some mediocre pizza. I would have preferred the gyro, but the line was too long. Crab cakes were our second option, but the woman was kind of bitchy, so we moved over to pizza.
The main reason we went to the festival was to see The Human League. I'd seen them a few years ago at Red Devil Lounge and they were AWESOME. This show was no exception.
Here was the setlist:
1. Never Let Me Go
2. Open Your Heart
3. Sound of the Crowd
4. Heart Like a Wheel
5. The Lebanon
7. Empire State Human
8. Night People
10. Love Action
11. All I Ever Wanted
12. Tell Me When
13. (Keep Feeling) Fascination
14. Mirror Man
15. Don't You Want Me?
16. Being Boiled
17. Electric Dreams
Songs #1 & #8 were from their new album, which I'm totally buying because the songs were fantastic! Sometimes you just want a band to stick with their strengths and not try to create something totally new and that's what the new songs were like.
Here's a link to the one I really liked ("Night People"). (Sorry, but there's an ad at the beginning.)
Tonight I'm off to dinner in Los Gatos and then Tears for Fears at Mountain Winery. Tomorrow I need to do a 10 mile run, so hopefully I get enough rest tonight!
Have a great weekend! What are you up to?
