I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia this week for the weekly wrap.
Last week was tiring, and it felt like I couldn't find my running rhythm.
Wednesday: easy 3 miles + weights
Thursday: 4.5 miles easy and zumba
Friday: running exercises' and pull up bar exercises
Sunday: Squirrelly Tail Half Marathon
Not My Best!
On Monday our office volunteer to help out Dress For Success set up their store, for their semi-annual sale. I know I talked about this before, but what is a good deed if one can't keep referencing back to it? right? I'm telling you about it again because 1. I was told by an older gentleman that I shouldn't carry boxes, because I'm "A little Girl"...( Insert eye roll here) his exact words! to which, I rudely responded by asking " you mean like this?" and lifting two boxes at one time. The second box was much heavier than I was expecting, but it did its job and he didn't say anything again.
|That is my supervisor, after he found a fur coat in the donations|
Then 2. I was helping carry the boxes from the truck, to the store. They let me have a heavy duty moving dolly ! but at the end of the unloading, I wasn't looking and bumped my knee and shin REALLY hard ! it hurt the rest of the day!! it hurt so much, that I couldn't run later that day. It's is now a giant blue bruise, and still a bit tender.
My son was sick on Wednesday, and is feeling better, thanks to those of you who asked! he is just a bit tired, it seems this cold took a lot out of anybody who caught it!
Loved, but Suffered
Yesterday, Roger and I decided to do a trail half marathon. It sounded doable! We were not planning to race it, only use it as our long run for the week. We did the Squirrely Tail Twail Wun in Pinchot Park. It was one of the hardest races I have done! for a little bit, I didn't think I would finish it! I'll tell you more about it this week.
We recovered, of course, with fatty food... we can be really obscene with food. Roger and I shared this delicious basket of yumminess! Roger also had a salad... cause he is all healthy and stuff.
The Audacity of Hope by (President )Barack Obama. I saw that Megan was reading it and got major FOMO, so picked it up too.
How was your week?
When was the last time somebody said you couldn't do something because you were a Girl? Did you slap them?
Have you done a trail Half? Man, they hurt!
Are you ready for Fat Tuesday?
Are you ready for Fastnachts? I am SO READY for Fastnachts!!
