Today's workout was Signature Strength class. TONS of lunges, squats, abs, arms... wowza. I was shaking all class. I'm already sore. I wasn't going to run... I really wasn't. Then, I thought of one of my favorite bloggers and decided to just SHUT UP IN RUN. I got 2 in in 18:20. I might run at lunch or after work OUTSIDE later since it's the coolest day of the week and I'm trying to enjoy semi-cool days with outdoor runs while I can. We'll see...
After dinner we grocery shopped, picked up a RedBox (Gone with Amanda Seyfeid), got FroYo (duh) and then spent a quiet night in watching our movie (meh… not very good… save your money). I called it a night around 11… super “late” for me!
I got up crazy early (for a Saturday) to get my long run in. We were going to a wedding in Indianapolis Saturday and I knew we needed to leave by 9:30, so I had to get my run in and shower and be out the door by then. So, a 5:55am alarm on a Saturday morning it was. UGH! But, I knew I could nap in the car, so that helped my mental state as I pulled myself outta bed.
10 miles was on the plan. I did 11 (1:47:11, average pace: 9:44) .
The Hubs has actually started getting in the habit of asking me how many miles I was “supposed” to run after I tell him how many I actually did. Whatever. I’m an over achiever. I can’t help myself.
The run was hot and sunny. I felt pretty good the whole time, though. Had I had more time, I would’ve gotten a few more miles in.
After the run I treated myself to a skinny iced vanilla late. SO good. Worth all $2329384 dollars these crazy fancy coffee drinks get.
We got to Matt’s cousins house, who we were staying with for the night, just outside Indianapolis in just enough time to change, freshen up, and hit the road for the wedding.
Gorgeous wedding at a church in Indy. The mass started at 2:30 and ended about 3:45pm. The cocktail hour was about 15 minutes away, but didn’t start til 5 so we had some time to kill. I knew right away what I wanted to do.
The reception was at a really swanky old renovated cathedral in downtown Indy. It was really nice, the bride and groom (the groom was the Hubs freshmen year college roommate and HS/grade school friend) were gorgeous, and everyone had a great time. We drank, dined, and danced til about 9:30pm when I just couldn’t stay awake any longer and called it a night.
We left Matt’s cousin Sunday morning after getting breakfast (stay tuned to this week’s WIAW!). We got back home around lunch and then just had a lazy night in. Several episodes of Snapped on Oxygen, some reading, a whole lot of just lounging arund, made dinner, and watched another RedBox (don't even remember the name... had Mark Wahlberg... not a great movie... you're not missing out on anything. Except a hot Mark Wahlberg. That's it. I promise.). I love lazy Sunday afternoon’s, so it was a great end to the weekend to me!
