I’m still basking in my PR from yesterday’s Mini 10K. When I started running three years ago, I was so excited to be able to hold 12-minute miles. At the time, I hoped I’d get faster, but I never would have dreamed I’d be able to hold an 8:26 pace over 6 miles. But I did!!!
I’m also really happy to have had such an awesome race before I start marathon training in a few weeks. I’m glad to go into marathon training with a few strong runs under my belt to set the tone for four awesome months of kick-ass running.
I am trying really hard to not overcommit myself and fill every minute of every day, but I’ve had lots of fun since brunch yesterday.
Pro tips: it just reopened and doesn’t have a liquor license yet, so it’s BYOB! Also, they have brown rice for their sushi rolls now.
I started with a seaweed salad, one of my new favorite things.
Rebecca and I both ordered the Bahama roll, which had spicy grilled salmon, cucumber, avocado and mango. She’s doing Paleo, so she had her roll wrapped in cucumber, which is apparently a thing.
After killing a bottle of wine at dinner, we went to Leticia’s for some more quality runner time. And more wine. And cupcakes. I was very much in my happy place…or maybe that was just the wine.
After getting home late last night, I had to be up early this morning for a work New Balance event.
Meet Newbie, my new BFF. That poor guy must have been so hot in the costume.
The event was a media/mom blogger event to showcase their kids’ lines.
Little baby Minimuses? I die.
I also finally met Gia’s precious children and melted a little inside.
By the time I got home around noon, I was exhausted.
But not too tired to hit up the Big Apple BBQ with Rebecca and some of her friends. I mean, I don’t think I would ever be too tired for pulled pork.
I hung out for a little bit, but was too exhausted and sore to stand around after standing all morning, so I peaced out fairly quickly for the most wonderful nap ever.
I skipped a blogger event that sounded a lot of fun because I was pretty sure my muscles would snap if I did a barre class, and ended up swimming this evening and swam out some lactic acid…and wine.
How was your weekend, and what’s your favorite workout to sweat out some wine? Other than running, I really like Bikram and swimming for sweating out some wine.
