Okay, well...kind of.

Painted the guest room/my office
Ran 13.5 miles
Dinner/Movie at home
Morning run: 5 solo, 11 more with Jen
Ice bath, and lots of foam rolling
Ran some errands
Worked on setting up the guest room/my office
Onward to the GB&Y.
*Friday was first 'shirtless' run of the year, bring on the sunny weather
*It was great to have dinner/drinks with friends Friday night.
I've realized the benefit of surrounding yourself with good people
who have your interest at heart and not just their own.
Surround yourself with people who make you better,
not the ones who bring you down.
*36.3 miles run in 3 days, and I feel better today than I did before the weekend.
*The guest room/office is all painted,
just need to move everything in, and decorate!
*13 days until Cleveland Marathon, the wait is finally almost over.
Marathon #5 will be under my belt before you know it.
*My arms are sore from painting and moving stuff all weekend.
Short girl problems: ladder isn't tall enough and neither am I....lots of reaching.
*On Saturday nights run I was cut off by a cyclist
and hit my head on a branch and cut my leg.
That man better hope I don't see him again..(he didn't even stop)
|You can see the cut that goes all the way across my leg.|
It's not deep but it's super sensitive.
I'm being a baby about it, but I don't care.
* I definitely experienced some Post-Long-Run-Blues yesterday. I was very cranky, sore, tired, and just not in the mood for ANYTHING. So I took some time for myself, relaxed a bit, stepped back from things and gave myself time to decompress. I don't normally get it same day as long run, but since I ran longer Saturday night, and then Sunday morning...it hit me sooner.
*Friday night I had my favorite... GUINNESS :)
that definitely gets filed under yummy!
|Spinach/Arugala salad with grilled chicken, fresh salsa, and feta cheese.|
Yummy, healthy, and fantastic. Trifecta.
This week is going to be a busy one for sure,
but I have great things to look forward to this coming weekend.
So let's just home Monday-Friday goes by fast!!!
How was your weekend?
What's your favorite 'unhealthy' or 'healthy'
way to refuel after a long run?
