Whoo! A Pain Free Run!
Friday night I was feeling pretty down so I put together a nice little lifting routine for myself because I wanted a hit of endorphins!
I didn’t commit to the squats with kicks and could have/should have done more, but I did knock out a 30 second plank PR when I finally hit 2 minutes!! Yessss!
I’ve got to give a shout out to Xtina because listening to Dirrty really helped me with ^ this monumental achievement in my life.
On Saturday I woke up early, grabbed a coffee and went on a quest to find bar stools for the new apartment.
I ended up finding great stools at Target for only $80 each, or as I like to think of it, the cost of two local half marathons.
After assembly, Adam and I promptly parked our butts in front of the TV to watch football all day.
Sunday included lots of football as well, and I am very happy that Green Bay is moving on!!! While I wish the Dolphins were still playing, Aaron Rodgers is the love of my life so I have to support GB.
(Kristen, does this make us enemies this week?! 😉 )
Adam is supporting the Patriots throughout the playoffs so I am really hoping for a Packers vs. Patriots Super Bowl so we can make a friendly wager! haha
After the GB game I hit up the gym and FINALLY went for a run after a week off!!!!
I only ran for 20 minutes because apparently I don’t know how to use the settings on these fancy new treadmills and the machine turned off after 20 mins, but I was completely pain free the whole time! WHOO!
Afterwards I did the stationary bike for a little bit while watching the game.
(Does anyone else out there have a Galaxy S5 phone? I just got one and whenever I use the self-facing camera it turns on something called “Beautify” mode which seems to just make my head look like giant alien head. I don’t like it!)
The rest of the night was spent just relaxing, drinking hot tea and preparing for the week ahead.
I hope you had a nice, relaxing weekend!
Do you have any fitness goals this year that aren’t running related?
Enjoying the way the playoffs are shaping up so far?
