Weekly Wrap....November 19

This week went by so fast. After running a Huge PR on SundayI pretty much took most of the week off to recover, from running that is. I still had to teach all my group fitness classes.  

Monday morning I met some friends for a birthday brunch. 

Tuesday it was Spin class and Silver sneakers. After my classes I splurged on a Pumpkin Spice Donut at Duck Donuts.

 We were going to get one after our race because there was one right across from our hotel, but it had closed by the time we got there.  I have been craving one ever since the race. Luckily they have one in Virginia Beach. It is a donut shop that originated in Duck North Carolina that makes made to order donuts. When they are done, they are hot and so delicious. That evening I went to a foot spa and got a much needed massage. Afterwards, my friend was having a girl’s night to watch This Is Us. I never have seen the show but haven’t seen her in a while so decided to come by. Who can resist some girl time with wine and snacks?

Wednesday it was my friend’s birthday so I told him I would take him anywhere he wanted after I got done with class. Out of all the places and great local restaurants that are not chains to choose from, he wanted to go to Denny’s. He said he gets a free breakfast for his birthday. Well that’s fine by me. They do things official there, he had to show his ID and sign a paper.

Thursday I had to teach my Silver Sneakers class then had to go to get an oil change. I didn’t want to go all the way home between that so I went to the gym that was close to the garage just to shower.  I didn’t want to make it that obvious so I did get on the treadmill for ten minutes just to break a sweat.

I met a friend for sushi while I waited for my oil to get changed.

After taking all week off from running I decided to give it a try on Friday. My legs were feeling much better and I ended up running 10 miles at a very slow pace but felt good.  That evening I went to a local Seafood Restaurant that was going out of business and had dinner. I had recently gotten a gift card for there and I wanted to make sure I used it before it closed by the end of the year.

 I got the scallops that came with a loaded sweet potato and vegetables.

Saturday morning I had planned to meet some girlfriends for brunch so I wanted to make sure I got a run in beforehand. It was only in the 30's during my run but was supposed to get into the 60's later that day. I ended up running 5 miles. I didn’t do too much the rest of the day.

Sunday I had planned to go to the gym to take a body pump class. But I ended up waking up much earlier than anticipated so I decided to go for a short run since it was already in the 60's. My run didn’t go as well as I’d hoped for. I knew I wasn’t going to go very far but I had a few hiccups along the way.  About halfway through my run I knew I needed to stop and use the restroom.  Thankfully I was close to the visitor’s center that was opened. When I walked in the restroom I immediately got a nose bleed. I guess if I was going to get one it was perfect timing. I was in there for what felt like forever! Finally it stopped but I grabbed a bunch of tissues for the run back home just in case.  

Luckily there were no issues on the way back home. I ended with four miles and I was totally fine with that.  After my run I went to the gym. This evening I plan to meet up with some friends for a birthday party.  -L

Ever go to the gym just to shower?
