Week of Sports

Do you know how hard it is to go to the gym after a vacation week?  A week where cake and pie were consumed as often as any other food group?  It.Was.Hard.  I managed to only make it to the gym three times this week (which was a feat compared to last week) and walk Walter every day this week.  Getting on the treadmill and running...I felt like a lard ass who could barely complete a 5k.  I only thought about food the entire time and what dinner reward I would get if I could even complete the run.

As the week went on, it got a bit easier and I even played some basketball with my hubs.  Ok I kept taking shots (not the alcohol, I wish) and he would rebound the ball for me.  But I proved to him that I never lost my basketball skills and he was impressed.  Why haven't we done that before?  Now I want a basketball hoop at home.

In typical Danielle fashion, I announced to my husband that I wanted to do Tough Mudder this year in Lake Tahoe.  He said no he wouldn't do it with me, and I told him that was fine, I could do it with others.  I got myself all pumped up about it, only to find out it is during my anniversary weekend (August 16th and 17th).  We are in San Francisco that weekend taking in a Giants game, eating coupious amounts of stellar food, eating wedding and shopping my little butt off.  So I guess it has to wait another year which is probably a good thing since I haven't started training yet.  I will do the Tough Mudder next year.  I WILL.

In other sports news, I didn't watch any of the World Cup.  My husband did last Saturday while I read a book.  I used to play soccer as a kid, watch my ex boyfriend in high school play, but that is about as far as my soccer love goes.  I do check ESPN for updates on who won because I love the USA and want them to win, but sadly I didn't care like most others did.

And in other, other sports news, I watched a bit of the NBA draft last night.  Gasp, I know.  I hate NBA and only have a love for college basketball.  But there was a good chance that Deonte Burton from Nevada (where I went to school and have season tickets) would be drafted in the second round.  Well once again NBA proved why I hate them so much, and he didn't get drafted.  Psh, don't you remember how many times this kid has been featured on Sports Center for best plays of the week?  So many.  This kid can dunk.

Sadly as I said, he wasn't drafted.  But I have faith a team will pick him up.

41 days until the first pre season San Francisco 49ers game (I'll take pre season over nothing). 
64 days until the first Nevada Wolf Pack football game.  Southern Utah vs. Nevada.

  1. I was thinking about a Tough Mudder in October here in North Carolina, but I honestly don't need to load anything else onto my plate until after I get married and finish Ragnar in November. Then I can start thinking about those kinds of things.

    1. Well like me you can promise yourself that next year you will do it! Congrats on the upcoming wedding. I can't wait to read about it.
