Rest Day & Test Driving

Today I am enjoying a rest day. I actually woke up around 4:30 this morning and tried to go back to sleep, but around 5:20 I was still awake. I almost got up to get in chest, shoulders, triceps. But after some debating with myself, I realized that yesterday's back/biceps workout would negatively affect any upper body weights today as my biceps are indeed talking to me. So, it was a rest day.

Tomorrow is supposed to be terribly stormy weather unfortunately. That means I'm going to have to take my run indoors. Not super excited about it as it calls for 6 miles followed by incline intervals then speed drills. I can handle the intervals and the drills, but 6 miles steady-state??? I may be fudging that plan once again (and I won't feel bad about it one bit).

After work, I finally went to test drive a couple of cars. My required list is easy: sporty, 2-door, convertible or sunroof, zoom zoom on the speed. I would prefer a standard as that's all I've driven. I don't think this sounds unreasonable, but apparently it is. Not finding many cars that fit into this category...oh, and affordable, forgot that part ;-)

There are pretty much four cars that I was interested in. I drove two and knocked one off the list just looking inside. One I am on the fence about and just need to go back and drive it. I was sort of hoping that driving the two I drove today would just settle it - like I'd like one a ton more over the other. So didn't happen that way of course.

Test driving of course put us home later than normal. Dinner is just going to be some Black on Black Bean Burgers I had stashed in the freezer with some baked sweet potato fries.
