Weekend Update

I feel like this is the first change I have had to sit down and relax this weekend. First on Friday, I actually woke up early and went for a run. Yes, you read that right I got up and ran before work and I didn't see any pig's flying either. I had an appoinment for a massage on Friday, so I wanted to make sure I had my workout done before that.  My massage was a Christmas present from my husband that I had finally gotten around to scheduling it. It was s deep tissue style massage and I explained to the girl that my lower back was the area I wanted her to focus on. She either didn't listen to me or didn't bother to care as she seemed to just focus on my shoulder area. I left feeling like it was the day after an intense upper body workout. For the past few days I have been in more pain in my shoulder/upper back are then I was before the massage. Pretty sure I won't be going back to see this person.

Saturday turned into a rest day as far as working out, but I don't think I stopped moving all day.  My darling dogs woke us up early with barking for no reason, but to wake us up. Once we were moving we went out to breakfast and then Evie and I headed to the orientation meeting for the 3-day walk. You may notice a new badge on the side of my page  - if clicked on it will take you straight to my page if you feel like making a donation. I am going to try not to annoying anyone to early begging for donations, since the walk isn't until November. With that thought I offered a $10 Starbucks card to the first person who makes a donation of any amount to my fundraising goal on Facebook and I extend that offer here also. It's never to early to start fundraising, right.

Sunday, I had a 10 miler on the plan. I am a wimp and didn't even attempt to go outside because at 9:30AM it was cold and raining. At mile 5 I hoped of the treadmill and went inside to go pee and noticed that it was hailing. After 10.25 miles, I headed back into the house and it was snowing outside. It wasn't sticking but it was cold out.  To cold for this girl and I was thankful to run inside in a new  tank  instead of bundled up out in the cold. I have never worn Zella brand, but I got a gift card for Nordstrom's and I bought this top along with a pair of Zella capri's.  Here is a photo of the tank, it definitely is a layering type tank and I think it will be great in the summer.

After over 2 hours of running, I took the little one to the pool and enjoyed my recovery in the hot tub. Seriously hitting the pool after a long run while tiring is the best recovery for my legs. After the pool, a late lunch, then grocery shopping, prepping for Monday, I finally time to sit down and blog. I feel like I have a million things to do still tonight, but I plan to do the minimum and get my booty in bed. I am exhusted.
