I’m getting over a sinus-cold thing but I was feeling pretty bad this weekend. I still got in some workouts and probably pushed myself a little too hard on my weekend 5 miler. My heart rate was a little out of control (high of 187) for not running that fast. I took it easier tonight on the treadmill and make sure to keep it under 170 for a change.
Friday night, Colby and I went out to dinner at a pretty nice restaurant downtown.
Colby had french onion soup and a roast beef and coleslaw sandwich.
I had mushroom ravioli with asparagus and grilled salmon. It was really good!
Then we went to see Safe Haven at the movies. I read this book a few months ago and really loved it. I’m not a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, but this was different. The movie was just okay. I liked it, but of course I liked the book better.
On Saturday, I went to see Rock of Ages at the theater with my Mom, her friend and Colby. Colby and I watched the movie on the plane to Hawaii for our honeymoon and he really liked the music. When my Mom saw it was going to be at a theater near us, we knew we would enjoy it. The show was great and I liked it just as much as the movie.
Finally, on Sunday… Colby, Mom and I went to see the new Die Hard movie. I know, lots of movies this weekend! My Mom is full on obsessed with Die Hard and Bruce Willis so it was a give-in that we had to see this opening weekend. I wrote about my Mom’s obsession in one of my very first blog posts ever! It was good, but I like the last one that was out a few years ago with the “mac boy” better.
I am crazy excited because tomorrow my Mom and I are going to meet this wonderful lady…
We LOVE Ina and I will fill you in with details later! :)
Tuesday: 4 miles (38:56)
Wednesday: 3 miles (29:26)
When is it okay to skip a mid-week run?
For me, I guess it is okay if I skip my 7 tomorrow. I absolutely HATE to skip my mid-week “long” run. All I can say is, “whyyyyyyyy BodyPump whyyyyyy?!?!”. We had such a great thing going for almost a full year! I wrote about it in a previous post, but I definitely pulled a muscle or something in my left calf at BodyPump last Tuesday. I just just lunging my little heart out and then something didn’t feel right. I thought it was getting better because it was okay for my 10 mile run on Sunday, but it hurt again yesterday.
I had a really good time running with Amy through an unfamiliar park. The new scenery was so nice, but it was kinda hilly and every time we ran up a hill I could feel a strain on my left calf. You wouldn’t be able to tell from the elevation chart Garmin has on my upload…
Come on Garmin!!! What is that?!? How am I supposed to tell anything from that?? Yeah, cause I obviously need to see -200 to 600 ft on the chart…
We ran 3 miles today after school planning to run 7 on Thursday this week. I just don’t think that 7 is going to happen. We ran through a different park today with some hills and every time we ran up one I felt like I was limping when I ran. Probably not the best thing and I should have told Amy (sorry!!) but I thought it wouldn’t be so bad for just a short 3 miler! I got home and did some hot tub, shower and compression socks that are not coming off until the next shower! I’m just going to take it easy and hope I feel better for my 15 mile run on Saturday!!
Anyone else reading them at the last minute like me? I finished the first two books over the past few days and I’m now on the third. I even got Colby to read the first one and he is really liking it. I figure if I can run 15 miles Saturday morning, my reward should be to go to the movies that night!
I really am liking the books a lot and I am excited to see the movie this weekend… but I don’t think they will take the place of my beloved Twilight
Is it sad that I’m really excited that the full Breaking Dawn II trailer will be shown before The Hunger Games?? I’ve watched this 15 second clip a bunch of times
