Saturday workout: 35min on the trainer + 1 hour of yoga + 45min of running (!) + 2-3 hours dancing = WINNING
Running scared seems to be my game this year. Not running in fear of my safety, which is important, but I almost always (and from now on that will be a definite ALWAYS) run with a buddy. I mean running in fear of my body telling me that it isn’t going to run anymore. My PF has been resting and recovering (you hear that PF!?) for the last 3 weeks. I haven’t done any running. I hate it. However, my trainer and lots of strength training have kept me in shape, but finally Saturday P and I went out in the rain for a nice light test run. We did 4.6 miles nice and slow and it may have been raining and cold but I ran with a HUGE smile on my face. No pain, just happiness. I’m going to slowly integrate running back into my workout regimen, but I’M BACK!!!!
Hot Chocolate 15k look out…
This weekend I decided to not be an old lady and actually went out. We dragged out Kev and Andrea to Voyeur in downtown SD to see the Crystal Method spin a DJ set. Was it worth it? I danced my feet off in 5.5in heels happily for 3 hours, yeah it was worth it. CM threw down an amazing set and did a huge portion of it totally on the fly which is when you know a DJ is having fun. The walking 6 city blocks back to the car in the cold wasn’t as much fun, but I LOVE going out and dancing. I started the night out classy with a Bud Light before moving on to my trademark cocktail, vodka+still water+ 4 limes. Try it before you knock it.
*do you like Phil’s clutch? Everyone else did.
Of course this weekend P and I kept the weekly brunch tradition alive. We woke up hangover free due to the fact that between P and I we had 3 drinks between the two of us.
This time it was Snooze in Hillcrest. Oh wow, this was the best breakfast ever. Like so good that I don’t ever need to go anywhere else again. The 1+ hour wait was totally fine as we were sitting on a comfortable patio with free water and coffee, and the food was over the top good. I had pineapple upside down pancakes, and even though they were gigantic I made it through half of them, and P had a breakfast pot pie. Andrea and Kev joined us. Between my pancakes and the best chai I have ever had, I will be going back asap.
Does anyone have a favorite breakfast spot in SD or the Irvine area (we’ll be there next weekend), because I am loving my bfasts right now?
P and I will be in Irvine for another Ragnar Team meetup and I am so excited. Almost as excited as I am that we are sponsored by Aspaeris. Our whole team has been fitted out with these shorts.
I am stoked to have something to help with recovery and LOVE compression wear.
