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?
