Well hello you party people!
Per my training, I had a long run to accomplish this past weekend. I was really excited because a woman from my office building invited me to join her in a gorgeous state park. So, at 5:15 am, I woke up and moseyed on over to kick off my weekend on a high note.
My body, however, had other things in mind. My stomach was turning and I just didn’t feel mentally there. Once I hit 5 miles, I quit. Over the past couple of years of running, I have learned, slowly and painfully, that not finishing every run I set out to do is NOT the end of the world. Rather than dwell on it and beat myself up, I proceeded to enjoy the rest of the weekend – which included getting my nails done with one of my dearest friends and a fun road trip with my co blogger to visit Erin!
Yay for fun colors!
We spent the night sushi-ing, dancing, and chatting (and as she mentioned, almost stealing her adorable pupppppppy!!).
Wouldn’t you want to steal that face too?
I love it when people love sushi as much as I do! It’s a safe addiction, I think! 🙂
The following morning, Rebekah and I drove home but made a pit stop to pick up some brunch! I devoured these blueberry pancakes. YUM.
And upon return home (it’s a short 3 hour drive), we hit up the gym where I chose to swim. I rolled my ankle on that stellar (NOT) run on Saturday morning and running is on hold until it feels normal again. Super duper. In case you’re curious, here’s what I do almost every time I swim – with a bit of variation here and there. I love it – but my favorite is getting in to the hot tub afterward!!
And that makes me one happy lady.
You know what makes me even happier?
I GET TO SEE MUMFORD AND SONS TONIGHT!!!!!
What’s your favorite kind of food to enjoy with groups? Sushi, though it’s not always agreed upon by everyone…. 🙂
Do you take road trips on a whim?
What happens when your long runs don’t go as planned? What’s your attitude about it?
