Hi everyone! This is the first Monday in a loooooong time where I haven’t been completely exhausted rolling out of bed. And it’s because I spend the entire weekend relaxing and have no regrets about it! This was the weekend of love and I chose to celebrate self love. On Saturday I caught up on blog stuff while watching tons of TV on demand (I’m all caught up on Dance Moms now!) and then binged watched Making a Murderer on Netflix! Anyone else think he’s not guilty or is it just us? Then on Sunday I celebrated Valentine’s Day by watched the Rock of Love marathon with my husband and then I went out on a fabulous trail run while he watched the Flyers game! When I look back on my Valentine blog post from Friday, I actually got to spend time with almost all of them this weekend – pizza, coffee, blogging, yoga, running, and my husband! I was supposed to go skiing on Saturday but I really needed that rest day – and all the pizza I ate that day.
I haven’t done a weekly workout recap in a while, but now that I’m not injured and I’m getting back to normal I thought I’d start the week off with one! I’m also trying out a new linkup and connecting with HoHo Runs and Misssippipiddlin for their Weekly Wrap Linkup! Here’s what I was up to last week:
Monday: I went to a Paint Nite party with my friends and painted a really cute starry night themed picture! Then I did a short yoga session at home.
Tuesday: 45 minute Pub run with my run buddies! After each pub run you earn a raffle ticket and the local running store does lots of drawings for prizes. Each week the two big prizes are a race entry and running shoes. I’ve never won a pub run raffle before, but today was my lucky day because I WON A FREE RACE ENTRY! Thanks Skinny Raven! It was supposed to be for the Valentine’s Day race but because I’m still recovering I decided to trade it in for an entry to the Shamrock Shuffle 5k.
Wednesday: Yoga class at my gym. It was really hard and I was crazy sore afterwards!
Thursday: I was supposed to go to the gym but ended up going to see Dan Savage with one of my coworkers because she had an extra ticket! It was amazing and so worth the unplanned rest day.
Friday: I went to an early morning yoga class, and then ran 30 minutes after work on the treadmill.
Saturday: Rest day!
Sunday: I treated myself to a 30 minute trail run in Campbell Tract, which is the only place in town where we still have snow on the ground. I then finished the day with Yoga With Adrienne’s Valentine Vinyasa Flow. Love her!
I also have some good news! My husband was at a work conference on Friday and won a FitBit Charge HR, and he decided that he didn’t really want to wear it around on his wrist all the time so he gave it to me for Valentine’s Day! I’ve never had one before so I’d love to get some tips or tricks on how you use yours. And if you want to friend me on FitBit, my username is Kristen K.!
What were you up to this weekend? How did you spend your Valentine’s Day? Do you have a FitBit?
