Did ya think I left you again? No such luck suckers, just had a busy weekend that didn’t technically wrap up until 5:30 last night when I finally returned to my house. Let’s get business out of the way before we talk fun.
On Friday I drug myself over to the gym for a light upper-body lifting session, and some abs because it’s important to have a strong core or something. I needed to be done my long run by 10 am on Saturday so I spent Friday evening with my boyfriend, Chris Hemsworth.
I picked up Rush from the good old Redbox and watch the whole movie twice. I watched the first 10 minutes more times than that, but that’s neither here nor there and if you’ve seen the movie you know why. I thought it was really good, and enjoyed it immensely.
Saturday I was out my door and on the bike path at 8:45 am, with 5 miles on the agenda. It was not an easy run, and I had a super achy right calf the entire time, but I finished in what I think should be about my long run pace.
It was hot, I lost one of the long sleeves I was wearing with about 3 miles left and tied it around my waist. I also apparently kicked the shit out of myself, literally, as the inside of my right ankle was bleeding when I got home. This isn’t new, I used to do it during my high school track days. I swear I was constantly walking around with cuts from my spikes. Meh, the Twitterz tells me I need to do some glute work to correct the weakness and alignment issues. We’ll see.
The rest of the weekend was full of excessive drinking, and powering through hangovers. On Saturday afternoon, a giant group of my friends met up at Bull Run Winery for a 30th birthday celebration, and then I was on the road bright and early (ok it was 10:45) on Sunday headed to Harrisonburg. I had a JMU basketball game and Super Bowl party to get, fun fact I’ve now attended more JMU basketball games 6.5 years after graduating than I ever did in college.
That little Instagram box up in the right corner has some more pictures from the weekend, FYI. All in all a good training week and a good life week. 11.5 miles logged running and some good cross training.
