Another Busy Weekend

One of these days I’ll have a weekend where I get to just sit around and do nothing. One of these days.

I spent Saturday up in Omaha attending a fitness test and training session for the upcoming college soccer season. I was a bit worried about the fitness test since the last time I did any substantial running was back in May at the high school state soccer tournament. As it turns out, I needn’t have been concerned. I ran about 2700 meters in the 12-minute endurance test, and I sailed through the various agility, speed, and anaerobic capacity tests. Apparently my legs still have a little spunk left in them even all these years after my high school prime. I was sore as hell on Sunday, though. Nothing will bring you down from an “I’m still in great shape” delusion like extreme muscle soreness the next morning.

On Saturday evening I had a wonderful meal with The Missus and my parents at La Paz. I really enjoy that place. It’s one of my favorite area Mexican restaurants.

The soreness from Saturday didn’t stop The Missus and I from driving down to Indian Cave on Sunday morning for a little hiking. The weather was just about perfect for a hike, with reasonable temperatures and overcast skies most of the day. We ended up walking about seven miles. As a cool bonus we ran across eleven deer, a few of whom let us get relatively close before running off into the woods. Two of the deer were fawns hanging out with their mothers. I realize that you can see deer pretty much any time you want in Nebraska, but there’s something extra neat about seeing them in a more natural setting.

Since The Missus and I were too exhausted to cook on Sunday evening, we ordered a BBQ chicken pizza from daVinci’s. The BBQ was a nice change from the usual tomato sauce.

Have you tried the BBQ Brisket pizza from Ramos/Busters?  That’s some good stuff.

I haven’t. In fact, I’ve never had Ramos pizza, and I’ve only had Busters BBQ once. For some reason I never think about it, even though I don’t live far from the South 48th Street Ramos/Busters location. I’ll have to change that. BBQ brisket pizza sounds interesting. The Missus wouldn’t be able to eat it—she doesn’t eat beef or pork—but we could always do a half-and-half pizza, or I could order it when I’m with more carnivorous types like myself.
