The First Day of Holiday Vacation: I Can Run Whenever I Want!
I’m officially on vacation!! For the next week and a half I will be a stay at home cat mom.
This means I will be doing the following things: sleep in, run anytime I want, see friends/family, spend every single waking minute following Adam around (I know he is excited about this) and spoil Cecil with Christmas gifts because I don’t have a human child! Yay for vacation!
The last day in the office my co-worker brought in homemade cupcakes that were almost too good:
I don’t eat frosting (just a weird thing about me I guess) but I love the base of cupcakes / cakes! Mostly I think frosting is too sweet. Probably why I don’t like Gu either.
Friday night and Saturday Adam and I did a little Christmas shopping and I got myself a few gifts as well. I felt it was deserved since I got a pretty nice end of year bonus at work (yay) : ).
I picked up a stick roller (this thing is awesome/painful/awesome):
And a new running shirt. It says RUN on it so I guess I can’t wear it on cross training days.
This beautiful purple shirt got broken in yesterday when I did seven miles outside in the sweltering December heat (“feels like 83 degrees”).
When the run was over the top was a much darker purple because I was sweating so much. I’ll spare you the visual.
It was a really pretty day though and I’m glad I actually got my run in before 10pm unlike most of last week! It was nice to see the sun.
Today I am super excited because I get to see my grad school BFFs! Spending time with them is much better than getting up early to go to work : )
Do you use a stick roller or a foam roller?
– I have a foam roller but I don’t have enough upper body strength to effectively use it on my legs….
