Went for a run: I had run 7 miles on Wednesday and my legs weren’t sore anymore but just felt heavy. I’m still bad at stretching post-run, so I think that probably played a factor, too. I took it easy, meaning I walked a bit, but I did 3.1 miles. I enjoyed the weather and also saw 12 dogs! Who were also out enjoying the weather.
Sat outside and read: This weekend was the first perfect weather weekend we’ve had so far this year. It was 70 degrees on Saturday, so that meant I had to set up my lawn chair and read. Our pool isn’t up yet—we have a 15 foot inflatable one from Amazon—so it wasn’t quite summer-mode yet, but I was excited to sit outside. I read about 100 pages of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and had a few mixed drinks (lemonade and black cherry rum, nothing too fancy haha). I did put sunscreen on but did get burned on my shoulders and upper back. Not one of my worst sunburns, though, so.
Binged shows: I finished Brews Brothers and started Waco. My mom and I also finally finished watching Say Yes to the Dress: America; the episodes had been in my DVR for forever, so for the last week or so, we’ve been getting through those episodes.
Ventured out of the house: Really the only time I leave my house is to go running, which I don’t count as “leaving the house.” I hadn’t been out in a store since the middle of March, right before the time when things started shutting down. I didn’t have a reason to leave the house, so after a month passed, I sorta missed the boat on it. My mom has been making fabric masks for us, and Sunday was the first time I put one on. She offered to take me to Walgreens—there’s one close to my house—just so I can get used to going out with a mask on. She got a few things, and I made it through the trip okay. After we just drove around town for a while just to get out of the house and see what’s been going on in town.
Changed my sheets: I do this twice a week on Sundays so that I start my week with clean sheets. But around this time of year with my allergies I change them once a week.
Sat outside: It reached 75 degrees!! I think I read close to 200 pages of Harry Potter? All I know is that I have like 20 pages left of the fifth book to finish tonight before bed. It’s such a long book, and although there were funny little bits or one-liners, I spent most of the book just wondering, “Okay so is anything actually going to happen?” I’m sunburned again, and my drink of choice was a blueberry pomegranate moscato GAZE wine cocktail; I bought a 6 pack from QVC. I really liked it! Would recommend.
Planned out my runs for the week: I do this every Sunday so that I know when my runs are going to be. The days are mostly dependent on the weather; I still run after work during the week and always have a Saturday run. This week is Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. I’m thinking 4-5 tomorrow, 3.1 on Wednesday, and a longer run on Saturday, maybe 7 if I can. My plan for running 10 miles by the fall is still in the works but I unofficially started it this weekend.
Puzzled: My mom and I started a new puzzle last week and we worked on it: it’s hard. Or maybe we’re just bad at puzzles haha. It’s another 1,000 piece one of cats.
What did you do this weekend?
