There are few things better than an amazing weekend – right? Well mine was just that! I got to see some of my favorite people, I got in some great workouts and I ate lots of delicious food.
Friday was spent carving pumpkins and cooking up a healthy dinner with my boyfriend, my best friend and her boyfriend. T’was cute – see below for proof.
Red quinoa stir fry with red peppers, onions, egg, mushrooms, sugar snap peas and cheese. We roasted green beans on the side – oh and the meat eaters grilled out meat and their plates were much more colorful than mine. 🙂
The final goods. They are all so cute!
Saturday morning was a slow one – and I enjoyed sleeping in only to wake up in time for a Swedish massage! Rebekah and I ventured out to a spa for an hour and enjoyed every moment of it. Next time, though, I’ll be getting deep tissue. Ain’t nobody got time for anything other than some deep muscle massaging.
Afterward, I was feeling ready to knock out my long run so that I could enjoy my day on Sunday. Let me just say this – I didn’t enjoy it. At first, it was all groovy and exciting but after the first 6 miles and the sun went down, I was over it. At least it was pretty.
I was thrilled as soon as it was over and my runner’s high was non existent. BUT, there will be runs like this and I was still very happy that I got it done when I had the time. And, plus, it justified this behavior:
And in that exact order is how those were consumed. Sweet things are priority, folks.
Yesterday was exactly what every Sunday should be – a day of relaxation and fun. 🙂 I got in a great 2,100 yards at the pool (which felt AMAZING) and then had a date night with my man.
We had a big ol’ dinner and then went and saw the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra. Super adorable.
What’d you do this weekend? Races? 🙂
What do you crave first after a run? Sleep or FOOOOOD? I love food, first. 🙂
Have you carved pumpkins this season yet? That shizzz is so hard!
