This weekend was full of sleep…and yet, I am still tired!
I have a few ideas of why I am still exhausted though – let me present, Instagram-style!
I woke up LATE on Saturday – 10 AM! Hubs was super sleepy too and so once he got up and about, he had to do some work stuff, so I walked to the mall and stumbled upon some great sales at Belk! I bought that dress…
…plus these wedges, Lancome eyeshadow (it is so silky) and only paid $115 for it all! I call that a definite department store success! Yahoooo!
After my shopping adventure, I headed back home, Starbucks in hand, then hubs and I embarked upon a second trip – this time, it was to grocery shop – we hit up Sam’s Club and Kroger, then returned home and relaxed for a while…but if you know me, you know I can’t sit still that long, so before it got dark, I set out to log a few miles…
Since I am still ‘recovering’ and deciding on my fall marathon plans, I quick-planned a varied run workout which included a “warm-up” run (2.5 miles to Charlottesville High School) – followed by some track laps (I ended up doing just 1 mile) and the run back home (2.5, respectively). For a total of 6 miles, I had just as many different paces (sub-7 for a portion!!) and it felt really fun to mix it up. The experience convinced me that as tough track workouts can feel, I should definitely get into them to improve my running – gonna look into some new shoes for this purpose, so if you have suggestions for lightweight track shoes, please comment For the time being, I’ll probably use my Saucony Shadow Genesis (I have these in orange - like these shoes a lot, usually wear them as TM shoes).
Sunday was pretty chill as well – started my day at Bikram, then made brunch for me and hubs – followed up by yet ANOTHER shopping trip – this time, for a bathing suit. Hubs went with me, and after 5-6 shops and about 8-10 suits, I found a winner! I’m excited – it fits well and seems pretty wardrobe-malfunction-proof, hah! I cleaned out my swimsuit collection soon after and tossed about 5 that I had been hanging on to for some reason another, as ill-fitting as they were…hah.
It wasn’t the most exciting weekend, but since I’ll be traveling again in just a few days, it was JUST what I needed. Though I am still a little sleepy-eyed, I’m ready to take on my short work week.
Do you prefer action-packed or R&R weekends?
