I’m not one for long intros…unless I have to ramble, but that’s what this post is about, so I’m going to jump right in. Monday’s are for Week In Review, hosted by Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets. My weekend was pretty low key and relaxing like normal. I think something I need to work on in 2016 is to get out there more. I’m just so darn content having quiet nights by myself. Is that wrong or am I scared of what’s out there? I’ll get back to you on that.
Thursday: New Years Eve
An easy 10 was on the docket today. It wasn’t too cold out and everything felt pretty good. I got in about 10 miles at a 7:40 pace. I worked until close and came home tired. I randomly started cleaning the bathroom and kitchen. After making some good headway, I stopped and turned on some Netflix. I ended up watching that and falling asleep at a normal time. Party animal right here.
Friday: New Years Day
I woke up Friday to an interval workout of 3×10 minutes at a progression pace ending at 5:20 per mile. It was pretty hard, but I enjoy my speed workouts because they are on the shorter side. Normally they are around a half hour in duration, but still hurt. After this workout, I ate breakfast, cleaned up the house a bit and then went shopping. Both of my jobs are closed for New Years, so I had a real day off. I was just going to sell some clothes at Plato’s Closet, but they were having a $2 sale on all sale items. I ended up buying tons of clothes both for myself and for my mom’s boutique. My sister met me and we went to the mall. I got two pairs of cute boots from Target along with other things I needed. I ended the night cleaning the floors, watching Master of None and reading blogs.
Specific instructions to run easy this morning. I got in 13 miles on icy roads beginning at 6AM. It was really pretty outside and I listened to the Ted Radio Hour Podcast from NPR. I finished that, ate breakfast and went to work at the running store. We got in a bunch of new shoes which I am loving trying on and walking around in. We were slow for some of the day so my coworker and I watched a track meet and commented on the different running styles we’ve seen. Some people are just a natural, while others….well, I probably look like that haha. I finished my shift and headed home. My roommate and I started a funny sitcom called Rules of Engagement. It has David Spade so it’s pretty hilarious. It’s nice to end the night laughing.
Not too out of the ordinary for anSunday. Did a bit of mobility work at the gym. I’m working on hip flexibility to prevent injuries. So far, so problems so I think it’s working. I stopped by work to grab coffee and even though I was working later, my boss asked me to help her until another coworker showed up. I don’t understand why they only put one person on the schedule to open. How frustrating! I helped out for a while and then went home to eat and clean up before coming back in. I also managed to clean out our freezer somehow before I went in as well. It was needed in a bad way. Work felt like it dragged but it was fun to see everyone after some time away. It was pretty slow, but also boring for the last hour. To be expected in the winter. Now I’m home and am going to make some dinner after I finish this post.
What was the best thing about your weekend?
How did you spend New Years Day?
