Once again the weekend flew by. How is it already Sunday night? It was a good weekend—a busy one, but I don’t know any other way.
Saturday morning was a long(er) run of 9 miles. The temperature was still very tolerable, hence the lack of hat and neckwarmer. I felt good and pretty strong throughout the run. My hamstring felt pretty good as well. I’m still being very diligent about icing, which seems to be helping.
After my run, I went to the gym for a 30 minutes abs class. It was awesome, tough, and my abs are still sore—just the way I like it. I always have good intentions of doing ab workouts on my own, but I knew going to the class would definitely keep me accountable.
I spent Saturday afternoon prepping food for our friends that evening. I made three different types of pizzas from the November issue of Runner’s World.
Sunday afternoon, I met up with a friend for an acai bowls at Acai Alaska. We had fun chatting and catching up, but the whole time, all I could think about was enjoying an acai bowl some place a little warmer. . . . . .say. . . . .
That’s right, this March Craig and I are headed back to the island of beaches, sun, and life in paradise. I CAN’T wait!!
(From this post.)
We will be spending nine days soaking up the sun, thawing out, snorkeling, and relaxing amongst some of the most beautiful beaches. We went to Maul two years ago, so we have some ideas of what we want to do, where we liked eating, but if you have any suggestions, feel free to comment below.
My week of workouts . . . . .
AM – 6 mile run
PM – 60 minutes Yoga Sculpt class (not a stretcy-stretchy class—most definitely a weight-lifting class using body weight and 3 pound dumbbells that kicks my behind every time)
AM – 4 mile run
AM – 30 minutes weight-lifting at the gym (legs)
PM – 7 mile run
First track workout of the season: 2 x 800 meters, 4 x 400 meters. Overall it went pretty well. I definitely have lost some fitness, but I know it will come back.
off – I had plans to take a class at the gym after work, but I was absolutely starving all afternoon, so I went straight home to get food asap.
4 mile run
9 mile run
30 minutes abs class at the gym
off – I thought about going to yoga, but I could tell my body needed a day off.
Total: 30 miles
What was the highlight of your weekend?
