Hello there! The sun is shining here and I am happy about that as we had rain and clouds for most of the weekend. Hope your day got off to a great start!
And yes, that is my only checklist for today. Well, we can add water to that list. Water and coffee are the only two things I’ll be needing to get through this day. I taught spin this morning too so I’m very much looking forward to getting my monthly 90 minute massage tonight.
This past weekend was equal parts filled with running and relaxing. Friday night I went out with a man friend to this new spot in Coppell…Carmel Restaurant and Lounge. It was quite a beautiful place. Perfect dark and romantic atmosphere. And yes, I hard to carb load it up a bit for my run the very next morning.
So 50K training for the ultra in March has been going well so far. The good thing about marathon training solo is you can kind of get up whenever you want and start running. I do love that. It was a great run and temps were just perfect, right in the 30s.
Recovery wise I felt phenomenal after. These longer runs usually have me feeling really spent so I was surprised by how not at all sore I was. It made it all the more better for my 10 mile run the very next day.
I felt so good I even pushed the pace a bit. It was raining and drizzling on and off but I had a beautiful backdrop which made the hour and a half run go fast.
Other than that I didn’t do much…just church, and catching up on all of my shows. Has anyone been watching the current season of The Apprentice? I’m loving it so far. Shocker…I pretty much love all things reality television. And Vivica Fox gives me life.
My mom and I also had a fun movie date last night to see the movie Selma.
We were actually supposed to see Wild…but the theater it was playing in was having some issues so they gave us free tickets for next time. BUT… If you have not seen Selma, I definitely recommend you go–however it is very emotional. I cried for about half of the movie…so glad we do not live in that day and age but it is a very timely film. Check it out…and bring tissues.
How was your weekend? Did you get any rockin long runs in?
