Bigcat's Wild Weekend

This weekend it was finally sunny and warm in Michigan! Sam was in town and Bigcat was in full lounging form.

Friday night Sam came into town and while Bigcat looked like this:
we went out to dinner at Red Hawk, a pub in downtown Ann Arbor.

Saturday morning I got up and made scones, but only after cuddling in bed.

Then at 11 I met my BFF and running buddy for our long run of the week! It was sunny and about 40 outside, so we tackled the North Campus area. It was a great run, up until we hit some hills with unplowed (snowy) sidewalks!

Mile 1: 9:40
Mile 2: 9:33
Mile 3: 9:45
Mile 4: 10:14
Mile 5: 10:20
Mile 6: 9:54
Mile 7: 9:51

We also got up to a 7:49 min/mile sprint for the last quarter mile! A great run to fill in my training plan for the weekend.

I came home to these two lazy-butts:

and made another Green Monster smoothie.
Into the blender went:
1 cup vanilla rice milk
handful of spinach
5 frozen strawberries
1 banana
2 scoops pumpkin
peanut flour
chocolate protein powder


Bigcat felt like modeling some more:
while Sam and I tried a yummy stout from a winter sampler pack his dad gave us for Christmas.
We went out to a lab party Saturday night and had tons of fun!

Sunday we woke up to this:
And then it was time to take Sam to the airport. After dropping him off I hit up TJ's for groceries, and picked up some dark chocolate V-day truffles! So good.
I ended the weekend with another cuddle session from my valentine:
How was your weekend? Happy Valentine's day!
