Fireworks + Weekly RUNdown!
Remember when I used to blog five days a week? That seems like a dream now. Life has been consistently hectic with a lot of changes going on at work and my mom moving here. I really hope to get back on the five day a week schedule and even do a lot more videos over the next couple of weeks. I bought a new camera on Friday that should be great to take videos with – it should be arriving today or tomorrow!
Aside from online shopping on Friday I also snuck out at night with a girlfriend to go see Magic Mike XXL!
(You might think that I only own one top but I promise I just own a variety of tops in this color!!! I love it! But I guess I should branch out to other colors!)
I know that we shouldn’t objectify men…. but really this movie is much more of a comedy than anything else. As my girlfriend put it, “I laughed more than I ooooh’d.” I won’t go into details in case you’re not into that sort of thing, but Joe Manganiello was aces. Alcide fans you won’t be disappointed!
Saturday I curled my hair before we headed over to Adam’s parents place for a BBQ. All of the ladies loved my hair but Adam noted that he isn’t able to tell the difference. Typical! 🙂
After we were all properly stuffed (no pics because we scarfed the food down) we went out to watch fireworks!
(^ I hope that gif works, I’ve never made one before!)
The show lasted about thirty minutes and was pretty spectacular. I love watching a good fireworks show!
Last year we were in Vegas for the 4th of July and didn’t get to see any fireworks because there was a rare thunderstorm!
Sunday we slept in pretty late and then walked down to the beach to grab lunch. I thought it would be super busy all weekend but it wasn’t too bad.
It was CRAZY hot out though. I couldn’t believe how many people I saw out running! I mean, it was only about 2 people, but seriously? Wait until it’s cooler out!!!!
Don’t kill yourselves… says the girl who continues to run on the treadmill because she’s a wimp and this heat is just suffocating.
Hey, treadmill miles are still real miles!
Here’s my rundown from last week:
Monday: 4 miles
Tuesday: Cross training
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: 5 miles
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: 8 miles
TOTAL: 25 miles
This week was the first time in a couple of months where I really felt like I could tackle a half marathon again. It wouldn’t be pretty, but I could definitely do it without it being a total suffer fest. Now it’s all about getting back to the point where I feel good about tackling a marathon again… and that’s what the next couple of months are all about! WOOT!
How was your 4th of July weekend? Did you see fireworks? Race? Watch the women’s soccer team kick butt? GO USA!!
