Saturday R. and his brother finished painting the walls and ceiling in the kitchen and hall. Now it’s finished and it all looks brand new again.
I picked up K. around 5 pm and we drove to Scheveningen which is about an hour. We found a nice Italian restaurant close to the theatre where we had dinner together. Because it wasn’t cold at all, we could eat outside. I never had dinner on a terrace in November.
After that it was time to go to the theatre where Wicked started at 8 pm. We had good seats with an overview at the entire stage. We both like the musical very much. In Holland musicals are translated to Dutch including the songs, this doesn’t really bother me. I liked the song “Define gravity” the most. Around 11 pm the show came to an end and we had to drive home which took us longer than an hour because of a little bit of traffic jam. I was home around 1 am and went to bed soon after that. I had a great evening and because K. and I hadn’t seen each other in more than a week there was a lot of catching up to do. K. thanks for a great evening, we’re going to do this again soon.
Saturday morning my lower back started to hurt. I have no idea how this happened, I didn’t do something strange but I could hardly sit, lay down or walk, everything was painful. Before my race on Sunday I used a gel with Ibuprofen and because of that my back didn’t bother me too much. Today it’s not over yet but much, much better.
Sunday was race day. The good thing about doing a race close to home that you are back home in 2 hours. I forgot how hard trail running is compared to road running but on the other hand it’s so much fun. I’ll get back to the race in my Wednesday post but I can tell you now that I’ve beaten my PR on this distance with 3 minutes.
Book I’m reading
The Hunger Games
Movies I’ve seen last week
If I’m correct a lot of you read the book too. I didn’t really like the book, everybody said it was a great book but I was bored pretty soon with it. But the movie was good. It doesn’t happen often that I like a movie more than a book but this time I did. If you haven’t seen it yet, I would recommend it.
TV shows I watched last week
Desperate housewives, Cougar Town, Rizzoli & Isles, Rookie Blue, True Blood, The walking dead, The Voice of Holland.
Dinner at an Italian restaurant with K. We both started with carpaccio.
Followed by tagliatelle with mushrooms for K.
And penne with tomato, olives and capers for me.
Pasta with zucchini, ham and tomato sauce.
