Speaking of the weekend… let’s review it, shall we?
Friday was a pretty low-key day. It was SUPPOSED to be a rest day, but I decided I’d rather rest of Sunday, so I did my 60-minutes of light cross training Friday at lunch via elliptical. No complaints here… I had TWO issues of Runner’s World to entertain me! Those 60 minutes flew by!
The Hubs had to work a little late Friday night, so I made dinner (wait for WIAW for the details!). The Hubs had a movie-man-date that night, and no, it wasn’t to see this (I checked the ticket stub, just to make sure! Kidding!!). It was to see the new Wes Anderson movie, Moonrise Kingdom. The Hubs made me see one of his other movies, The Royal Tenenbaums, right when we started dating and I HATED it. Just not my kinda humor. He’s been dying to see Moonrise Kingdom since it came out and it’s finally in our local theatre, so I was more than happy to say “Have fun! I’ll grocery shop; you see the movie with your friends!” So, that’s just what I did—a fun filled Friday night grocery shopping. Then, I got back and finished the season of True Blood (Tara! OMG!) and baked chocolate “muffins” (aka: cupcakes without icing… again, wait for WIAW for details!).
Yes, it is missing one because I ate it. I mean... duh. Come on, now.
I was passed out before the Hubs even got home from the movie. Classic, Meagan.
Clearly, this is PRE-run. This is a fake "OMG! I HATE MY LIFE! WHY AM I UP AT 6AM ON A SATURDAY??" fake smile.
What's that? You don't see anything? It might not look that big in the picture, but that, my friends, is a huge, PAINFUL chafe. It’s RAW and stung SOOOO badly in the shower. Wowza. It still hurts today. Every long run, no matter how much I BodyGlide, I chafe. Usually it’s from the sports bra, so at least this one isn’t on the girls. That’s a plus.
Annnnyway, after showering, I ate lunch and then headed out with the Hubs for a “walk”. Yeaaaah… this turned into the most epic walk we’ve ever done togther! 8 MILES. That was after my long run too. 8 miles right at the PEAK of the day’s heat. Great life choice, Meagan. I was SWEATING and my legs were SCREAMING by the end, but it was a great day! We walked along a river and saw tons of kayakers and lots of other people out and about. I ended up spending over 21 miles on my feet that day! A new PR! PLUS, I didn't get ANY new chaffing marks! I'll call that a HUGE success!
After our craaaazy long walk, I napped then the Hubs and I went out for dinner and for fro-yo. Yum!!
Sunday I somehow convinced the Hubs to come with me as a guest to my gym to go to spinning!
