I hadn’t intended on not blogging this weekend, but it was kinda nice. We didn’t really do anything terribly exciting, but it was a nice weekend anyway.
Friday morning I had a pretty great workout. I hit up the arc trainer for about 30 minutes, then did a shoulder workout from this months Oxygen magazine. I also did a little bit of ab work too.
Pasta with meat sauce and veggies. And cheese of course. Yum yum.
Saturday morning I woke up to storms and high winds that cancelled my planned long run. We actually lost power for about 3 hours after a broken tree branch downed a power line. The fireman were hanging out on our block too.
We eventually showered and headed out to run a few errands. I got a fun new cup from Bed, Bath & Beyond because the green one fell on the ground and broke (This one hold 8 more ounces though – yay!) We also get a few groceries and grabbed a quick dinner out, followed by a scoop of TCBY. We also met some friends for a few beers as well. It was a pretty nice night.
Sunday morning started off early – and with no rain! I got my running gear on, ate a light breakfast, and headed out for a nice 6 mile run. The weather was pretty nice – not too warm, overcast, and just mildly humid. I ate a strawberry-banana Gu at mile 3, and felt pretty good overall.
A little over an hour later I came home and made a yummy smoothie to fill my new cup. (1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup spinach, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop protein powder, handful each frozen strawberries and mixed berries)
And a sourdough pretzel. Love these things.
Then hung out in bed and read/wrote/listened to podcasts while Matt did some baking in the kitchen:
End result? Cinnamon raisin sweet rolls. They were so good, especially right out of the oven.
Today has been semi-lazy. I didn’t work today, but I’ve done a few things around the house and planned out my workout for later. See you later with a recap of it!
