I had planned on doing Jackie Warner's DVD on Monday, but when I woke up my whole body was tired. I imagine it has to do with running 7 miles Saturday and then 2 + yoga on Sunday. At any rate, I can tell when I need a break, and I definitely needed it, so I took the day off.
I did both Tuesday and Thursday's 5 mile runs on the treadmill because for whatever reason I just couldn't get motivated to go face the heat and humidity. Call me crazy. They both went pretty well, I felt good through both of them and I had AC, can't complain about that!
The Jackie Warner DVD made me SORE. I was a little nervous about running after doing it, because my legs were pretty sore, but it didn't really affect my runs. I love being sore after doing weights and I think I need to strength train more. I know Hungry Healthy Happy hates weight training, but I don't mind it so much :)
We went out on Friday night to Wild River to see some friends from college and see Aaron Watson play (he was awesome).
We had a TON of fun, but got home really late and I was worn out on Saturday.
We had a pretty jam packed Saturday as it was because Sean's nephew's (my nephew's?) second birthday was Saturday morning and then Sean's parents came over and hung out at our house for a while after. Somehow I made it to the gym around 3ish and cranked out 45 minutes on the elliptical. It wasn't easy or pretty, but I got it done with the help of Men in Black. I know a lot of people love the elliptical, but I am just not one of those people.
Britt at 7 this morning to do the 10 miles that I skipped last week courtesy of the Funfest race. Normally I am a solo runner, so it was really nice to switch it up and have a running buddy. We chatted the whole time and the first 9 miles flew by. The last mile was brutal for me because my shin was starting to bother me, but we got it done. We went to a park that I never run at, and it made for a really pretty run, definitely going to have to go back there!
I came home and did 20 minutes of Pilate's because I am the world's worst stretcher and yoga/Pilate's is about the only way I get it in, and now I am dead.
And by dead I mean I'm eating a massive salad, doing laundry, and putting off vacuuming and mopping. Boring.
Do you normally do all your house chores on a certain day? I try to do one thing a day so that it doesn't all stack up on the weekend. But I am running behind this week. Oops.
Anyone do anything exciting this weekend?! Any races? I love spending time with both of my family's, and I got to see Sean's familia yesterday and get to see mine today. And I was super excited about doing a long run with a friend, THANK YOU BRITT!
