So this post is a bit of weekly round-up/kind of random. Just some things about my week that I decided to share...
Pet peeve...of the week:
The trash man leaving the trash can literally in the middle of the driveway so that you either have to drive through YOUR YARD to get out of the driveway or physically get out of your car and move the trash can. They do this every. single. time. Um, would it really be that difficult to put it back on the side of the driveway like it was?! It's just so frustrating when you have someplace to go, and there is a trash can (your own that you did not put there) blocking your path. Okay, rant over.
Social...of the week:
One of my co-workers got a job at a clothes store and invited me and some of my other co-workers to come get fitted so he could practice. So we trotted over there (I guess people really don't trot... I've been around horses too long!) and had quite the time trying on tons of clothes! I ended up finding an outfit with super comfy jeans and an adorable top.
Food...of the week:
Running...of the week:
Sunday - 3 mile run + strength (I don't remember exactly what I did, but I was so sore the next day!)
Monday - 2.15 mile run
Tuesday - 3.1 mile run
Wednesday - running rest day, aka strength day. For legs, I held jumping position when I rode my horse for ten times around the arena. That may not sound like anything, but anyone who rides knows just what a leg workout that is! Feel. the. burn. For upper body, I did 20 push-ups, 20 tricep-dips, 20 anterior raises, 20 shoulder press, 20 tricep kickbacks, and 20 bicep curls (all with eight pound weights). I finished it off with 50 bicycle crunches, 1 minute plank, and 1 minute side plank on each side > killer hard! I know that isn't an intense upper body workout or anything, but I hate doing upper body because it's my weakest part!
Thursday - 4.8 mile run (my longest run yet! It felt absolutely AMAZING!)
Friday - 6 mile bike ride with my mom
Saturday - rest
Excitement...of the week:
I have my 5k tomorrow! Woo! It won't seem all that far after doing almost five miles haha. But I'm so excited. I just love race atmospheres!
Also tomorrow, my Mom and I are headed out on our annual girls getaway. Every year (excluding last year - it was crazy with my first year of college and all), my mom and I go on a trip with just the two of us, and we always have a blast. I am SO excited to spend some time with such an amazing person (come on, she makes me ice cream! ;-) ). But really, I've been looking forward to this trip ALL year! We will be gone through Wednesday. Expect recaps when I return!
Tell me something exciting about your week!
