A Sunday 8

Posted Feb 11 2013 6:00am

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was especially good because Drew can to visit for the weekend. Any time we get to spend time together is fine by me. That being said, why do weekends go by so fast? :(

Izzy wanted him to share his cookie…

Saturday started our with Body Pump class, which (I think?) Drew enjoyed again, and of course I did. Then we got to spend time doing a little shopping Saturday while we were in Hershey (Chocolate Town, USA!!!). and I even got a new bike saddle for practically a steal. Drew was kind enough to put it on for me… (cause we all know I can’t do that. I’m challenged when it comes to tools and bike parts, whoops) Now if only it was nice enough I could actually take it out on the road…. Come onnnn, spring!

Street lamps turn into Hershey Kisses, and of course you could turn onto Cocoa Drive :)

That night we ate ice cream and watched The Hunger Games. Drew even liked it!

Sunday I set out for my 8 mile run. It was actually a toasty 32 degrees and the sun was out. Brilliant! I begged Drew to run 3 miles with me so it wasn’t as boring and he “happily” did so. (Did I mention he doesn’t really like to run?)

This is the second attempt. “take another one where I don’t look so miserable”- Drew

We made a seperate turn and I set off for my next 5 miles by myself. I have to say the first 4 miles were really sluggish. I was not “feeling it” per say…I actually tweaked my back about 30 mins before my run (I tend to do this every once in a while, i think it’s a pinched nerve or something in there but this time it was a bit worse…i know. 24 going on 90 ugh)  and I can’t say that felt that greatest in the beginning. I think about mile 4, however, my ibuprofen kicked in and I finally go in the groove and finished in a decent time. A new PDR, of course :)

If you’re wondering..the shirt is the new Oiselle Lux Layer and it is FABULOUS. So soft, I want to live in it! Poppy color

I have to say that the long runs have not been so bad, some miles have the ups and downs but . When this training plan started I was definitely fearing the long run. I used to think that after 5 miles, the runs would drag on and on, but surprisingly the miles go by fast. I kind of count down after each mile and keep myself distracted with music. I have found that its nice to zone out and just think and have some “me” time. I have really been enjoying the long run!

After I got back we went out and saw Identity Thief! We laughed so hard..I love Melissa McCarthy, hilarious!

  • How was your weekend?
