Since I moved home at Christmas, I’ve gone on four separate trips. FOUR in under two months! Between interviews, visiting my boyfriend, and a family vacation, I feel like I’m never at home. And I survive on Southwest points.
So, this weekend it felt so strange to be home with no big plans. I ended up doing a little of Mardi Gras, but other than that I was just on my own.
Friday I got lunch with a friend and then did some research training all night (like 7 hours until 10:30pm all night..ugh!), Saturday night I did a little studying for the class I’m taking and watched Notre Dame play ten thousand hours of basketball, and Sunday I got in a long run before doing a little window shopping.
My long run! 10 miles!!
Saturday was a much needed rest day – Best Body Bootcamp kicked my butt last week! And that rest was perfect the day before a good long run. I’m training for an unspecified half marathon (there are a bunch this spring but I haven’t committed to any) so I’m trying to gradually increase my mileage. Last weekend I ran 8, and this weekend was a nice and easy ten. None of that speed or hill work I’ve been doing – just a steady 7.0mph pace while watching lots of House Hunters.
It was storming when I woke up ( I LOVE storms!) so I was lazy in bed for a few hours, but by the time I was heading to the gym it had stopped raining. I was kind of kicking myself for not running outside in the park since it wasn’t too super cold, but I’m a treadmill lover (up to 17 miles!) so it was fine. Hopefully I can start doing more outdoor runs soon!
And after a shower and food, I threw on my Pro Compression socks and went to the mall for some window shopping. I have no business buying too much right now, but I still like to see what’s out there.
It’s Sunday night right now and I just finished some Whole Foods sushi (I’m on a major sushi kick right now), and Kombucha, and am settling in for some Grammys and a little more studying. I’ll probably grab a little sweet treat before bed too.
I’m traveling the next two weekends (this weekend to see P, then to DC with my parents) so the quiet time at home won’t last long. Gotta appreciate it while it lasts!
- Do you prefer weekends with no plans or to always have something to do?
- Are you traveling at all this spring?
