Happy weekend! This one has been great so far. We are still at my parents house having a great time. Today we are hosting a surprise 70th birthday party for my aunt and hopefully getting in a long run in the morning. I would really like to have time for 11 or 12 miles so we will see.
We watched movies and cleaned the house yesterday, and last night we ate pizza and watched the Endymion parade on TV. For those unfamiliar, it’s a HUGE Mardi Gras parade with 2600 riders and I think 24 or so floats. I would love to go to the ball one day, it always looks so amazing on television. Speaking of which, my parade recap should be up tomorrow, then Tuesday the next part of my Rouge Orleans recap.
Here is my workout recap from this past week. It is more sparse than usual due to recovering from Rouge Orleans. With two half’s back to back coming up I knew I needed to take it easy this week.
Sunday: Ran 7 miles and biked 8.5 for the remaining legs of the Rouge Orleans ultra-marathon relay
Monday: rest (really, sleep!)
Tuesday: Valentine’s Day, more resting
Wednesday: upper body weights, 10 minutes elliptical, 1 hour yoga class
Thursday: ran 2 miles, upper body and ab weights
Friday: upper body, ab, and leg weights, 15 minutes elliptical.
Saturday: rest (was supposed to be long run but were under a tornado warning!)
miles run: 9
yoga taken: 1 one hour class
strength training: 3 days
cross training: 3 days
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend! We are headed back home this afternoon, then I have a couple days to pack and get ready for Princess! I cannot wait to share all the fun with you.
QOTD: If you could design your own Mardi Gras float what would it look like?
