My extra long weekend was great, but per the usual I packed 5,000 things into four short days, which means I'm extra tired today (and trying to catch up on work projects).
Saturday morning, I was treated to an epic solo run. It was one of those runs where the weather and scenery was just so perfect that I had a smile on my face the entire time. Relaxation at its finest.
It was foggy as I set out and then the sun came out about half way into the run. One of my first ipod runs in a while.
After the run, I took a speed shower and headed to yoga to stretch out my uber tight hamstrings.
We had a memorial service to attend that afternoon in Portland. And while the event was sad and surreal, the food was delicious. Someone enjoyed a massive piece of banana cake in Shirean's honor.
After carb loading at Easter brunch with the fam, the manfriend, Jonah Bell and I headed out to the trails. He was mountain biking, I was running and Jonah Bell was chasing Pete.
Despite its appearance, the trail had its muddy spots and Jonah was the first to spot them and lay down in any bit of mud she could. Gotta love dogs.
The dog always keeps things interesting
After an hour of time on the trails, we were all pretty tuckered out. I didn't really take a rest day last week and the events of the weekend had really caught up to me. I nearly fell asleep at 7 pm in front of the TV.
This week, I'm starting Tina's Best Body Bootcamp again, which I did about a year ago. Today's workout was mostly arm focused, which I can't complain about. The legs get a lot of work regardless.
While I'm not following some "bridal slim down" program to get ready for the wedding, I do want to feel fit, strong and healthy on our big day. In the next few months, I will likely focus more on clean eating and limit the amount of treats and alcoholic drinks I consume.
How was your weekend? Anyone fooled by a clever April Fool's joke? I'm not a big jokester, but I do appreciate the jokes that are really thought out, like the Redbox lunch meat ad. BTW, I hope this never becomes our grocery shopping reality.
