|I love the Low Tide Rabbit tops! So fun, and they don't look like running clothes|
Wednesday (6,821 steps) - Peloton ride and full body strength training before going to work in the office.
Went for a walk at lunch. Pretty sure I had leftovers again for dinner, and must've watched something on TV, but I don't remember. Tyler stopped by briefly to pick up the battery he loaned me MANY months ago.
Thursday (22,753 steps) - Up early for... a track workout :(
I have not missed doing speed work AT ALL. I needed to get in a warm up and 4x800 with 800 rest in between, and I didn't think I had enough time to go all the way to the nice track, so I ran from the house to the dirt track at the middle school. I don't even like speedwork when I'm feeling "ok" so I was dreading this. The warmup was pretty awful, but by the time I got to the intervals they were "not bad" and I actually managed to get faster with each one.
I fully recognize that those 800 paces used to be paces I could maintain during a half marathon, but I'm obviously not at that fitness level anymore.
Friday (9,129 steps) - FRIDAY. Wash Park and coffee with the gang. New latte flavor, which was exciting - plus, how can you go wrong with whipped cream?
Saturday (32,357 steps) - Up early to meet up with Runners Edge! I had two hours on schedule, with the goal to remain in zones 1 and 2, with a few 3-5 minute long pickups. Well I wasn't sure how slow I would have to run to keep my heartrate that low, but I figured I'd just do 10.
Took Pika for a walk, then Ariel and I drove up to Silverthorne. Actually, A did her first "mountain" driving and drove to Georgetown, then I drove the rest of the way. We were able to check into our hotel a bit early, then we still had to get ready for Paula and Jon's wedding. We were out the door on time and found the venue without difficulty. Their wedding was really cute and they got married on the green - and luckily the weather held out. Plus, look how nice we looked!
We left the venue around 9:40 and A drove us back to our hotel. Watched some Law & Order SVU, but went to bed pretty soon after that.
I kept my phone in my purse most of the night, so really only took pictures of this one cupcake, and the picture below that I stole from one of the other people that took it, haha.
|Ariel and I are the only ones that don't have the purple Selk bags!|
Ruth, Erica, Ang, Annette, Paula, A, me, Mo and Lisa
Sunday (3,791 steps) - Unfortunately, we didn't have a do not disturb sign for our room and we got a few knocks on our door before 8 am. We finally dragged ourselves out of bed because we were hungry. We went to a cafe down the street - it was delicious.
We met Greg there and played the "how many countries of the world can you name" game. He is the smartest person I know and was able to get 166! (I got half that). We headed out at 12:30, but it was already too late. It took over 3 hours to get home (it's normally about 80 minutes). It also rained a lot of the drive, so I did the whole drive instead of switching out with Ariel.
Went with Ben to Costco to put gas in my car, then up to 4 Noses for a beer. Evening was spent watching TV and having burgers for dinner.Monday (18,200 steps) - Work from home! Took Pika for a short walk, early, then up to Eldorado for a hike at lunch. I got partway there before I remembered that my parking pass is tied to my old car, not my new one, so I had to stop by A's work to switch cars. I had decided to go at lunch since it was supposed to rain in the afternoon.
I haven't done any trails since Fat Dog, and I was quickly tired and out of breath. I was watching the skies, I didn't want to get caught in weather (and neither did Blue-C).
