A Weekend of Golf

on June 23, 2013

Here we are at the end of another great weekend, looking forward to a busy, and hopefully quick, week ahead.

This weekend was all about golf for me.

On Saturday, I played in a charity golf tournament with hubs and 4 other friends.  We had a great time on the course.  There was some good golf, cold beer, and lots of laughs.  It was a very casual round of golf.  Hubs had his Bose speaker blaring songs from his iPhone and we rocked our way around the course.  We also drank our way around the course, enjoying a few (okay, maybe more than a few!) Corona tall boys!  We had a great BBQ chicken and steak dinner, won some prizes, and even got to see a bit of the hockey game as we went back to a friends for a post-golf beverage.  It was a great day!

Today was a very different kind of day on the golf course.  It was my Chapter Championships for my EWGA league.  It was still not a very stressful round of golf, even though it was a competitive round, since we were the only scramble team playing, we had already qualified for the next round of the Championships in Ohio.  We played quite well, shooting 4 under on the front 9, and then had a rough start to the back nine, bogeying 10 and 11.  We got back on track, and ended up 1 under on the back, for a total of 5 under for the round, shooting 66.  We have a –2 handicap factor, so our net score was actually 64.  Not too shabby!  This isn’t the greatest picture, but here we are getting our “trophies” – L to R are Marlene, Andrea, Michele and me.

You may notice Andrea has a bit of a baby bump going on…she is quite pregnant and is actually due on Thursday!  She was a real trouper, and toughed it out in the stifling heat, playing some awesome golf.  She did pass on taking the odd shot if we had a good drive, or skipped a putt if we were close and likely to make it.  We all hope she has that baby soon so she can recover in time to head to Ohio for sections at the end of July!

Tomorrow it is back to work, and back to the Box.  This week will be a busy one at the office, but that should make it fly by…which is good, since next weekend is a long weekend for us up here in Canada.  The week starts off with a good looking WOD too…a little Tabata This!

This should be another killer workout.  I did a workout similar to this in my early CrossFit days, and it left me in a puddle on the floor.  I’m thinking this WOD might do the same thing!  Here’s hoping!

Now, I’m dragging my exhausted body upstairs to bed.  I’ve had a busy weekend and need a good night’s sleep to tackle my busy week ahead.

How was your weekend?
Do anything fun?

Here’s hoping the week ahead flies by!

    This weekend we scheduled a little summer vacation! We were so frustrated because we couldn’t find any available campsites but then we finally settled on Coer d’Alene, ID. Yay for getting out of the house!
