This post is getting written way later than normal. Why? Well the more I look at my calendar the more I realize I need to get on the ball with this whole move thing. I am so behind!
We finally decided to not try to go with anymore moving companies and to rent the truck ourselves. Sure, it may be more of a headache but it is the only option that fits in the budget. I spent most of the evening on the phone with various companies try to find the best deal.
Sunday is the only day that both Wes and I have completely off of work. We always begin the day with a run and then spend the rest of the day relaxing (or trying to) and spending time together.
We went out to do a little shopping to start it off. I have been on the hunt for a new dress. I have two “dress occasions” coming up – one at a wedding this weekend and his medical school graduation in a few weeks. Forever 21 had just opened in our mall so I decided to go try it out because I knew they had budget friendly items.
I ended up finding this gem. I’m not sure which one I am going to wear it too, but it will sure work for one of them! I usually don’t like shopping at Forever 21 because the clothes I have bought in the past end up falling apart, but I really only need the dress to last 1 or 2 wears.
We also stopped by PetSmart to browse (we love to go and look at the kitties) and I found this.
Isn’t it adorable!? I couldn’t convince Wes to buy it, but I will have to keep it in mind for the future. Zoe isn’t usually a clothing wearing dog.
Speaking of Zoe after we got back home we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and head out for some play time.
She had a blast, but on the way home as we were walking back she decided she’d had enough and just laid down.
I knew how she felt because that is exactly how I had felt on my run earlier that morning.
The rest of the night was spent sitting on the couch and watching movies. We did make a late night cheeseburger run. I was craving one bad so we decided to just go for it.
Not the healthiest, but that’s okay that’s why moderation is important!
I woke up on Monday and the weather was really gloomy. I knew they had been calling for rain but it had only had a LIGHT sprinkle so far.
I really wanted to do my speed workout on the track. The treadmill is my last resort so I took a chance and headed out to the local track.
The entire drive over the clouds kept looming but I hope it would hold off long enough to at least get part of it done. The one good thing about trying to beat the rain is you don’t mess around.
I got to the track and started my workout. Since I am repeating the first 2 weeks of my 10k training plan it was another day of 400s.
I did a 2 mile warm up, 8 x 400 (averaging around a 1:39/1:40) with a 400 jog in between, and a 2 mile cool down. The picture above is of my watch on the last 800. It was my quickest which means I paced myself much better this time.
It was tough but went much better than the first time. I ended up having to dodge the high school PE class that was out there for the last little bit, but ended up dodging the rain completely! I call that a success.
I don’t mind having to do easy runs on the treadmill, but workouts I really like to get in outside for better training. Thankfully today worked out!
After I finished it was off to the gym to get in a short strength training session and a shower. I felt so much better after a good shower.
How did your Monday workout go?
What is your favorite place to find cheeper clothing? I am always looking for suggestions!
