Weekly Recap: January 29th – February 4th, 2018

So I may or may not have gotten a little bit distraced last night and didn’t get around to posting my weekly recap. Oops.

But in all fairness, I think most American’s were a little bit distracted last night by the big football thing. Haha not gonna lie, I’m not at all interested. I just watch for the commercials. πŸ˜‰

Anyways, lets get on with it then!

Monday:

  • 4 miles

Kinda really didn’t want to do this run on Monday. It was another windy day and it wasn’t as fun as last Friday’s super windy run. I got it done though!! πŸ™‚

Tuesday:Β 

  • 35 minutes on the stationary bike
  • 15 minutes of strength work

Bleh. Spending time on the stationary bike is definitely not my idea of fun. But it’s probably good that I do. And obviously strenght training is always a good idea! Haha I definitely need to spend more time doing it, but a little something is better than nothing! πŸ˜‰

Wednesday:Β 

  • 2 miles

My legs and abs were feeling kinda sore on Wednesday. So obviously that means my tiny bit of strength work did something on Tuesday! πŸ˜‰ Haha sore muscles sure didn’t stop me from turning what was supposed to be an easy run into something that might have been just a little too hard. For the most part I kept the first mile pretty easy, but then my music app crashed, I turned on American Idiot, Jesus of Suburbia came on, and I ran harder for most of the second mile, and ended up negative splitting for the first time in a while (at least I think it’s been a while. Honestly I really haven’t been paying attention to that haha. Oh man, this turned out to be a really fun run. πŸ™‚

Thursday:

  • 35 minutes on the stationary bike
  • 15 minutes of yoga

Hahah was not feeling it on Thursday. I mostly just couldn’t focus on one tasks for any amount of time. Meh, whatever. I still got a little bit done. πŸ™‚

Friday:

  • Grocery day
  • Took the dogs to the park

I couldn’t in my right mind call Friday a rest day haha. Not with all of the running around and shopping that Luke and I did. Not gonna lie though, grocery shopping day is my favorite day haha. Who doesn’t like obtaining food?!? After that adventure was done and over with we took the dogs to the off leash dog park and let them run around for a while. They definitely enjoyed that. Anyway, Friday was more like a day off running than an actual rest day. It was fun though. πŸ™‚

Saturday:

  • 7 miles

I think this run just might have been the longest I’ve done since I ran my last half marathon back in November. Oops… Surprisingly enough though, it actually went pretty well!! I was initially having fun, fueled by Honey Stinger, compressed by Zensah, of course. πŸ˜‰ But then it started getting really windy, and I’m not a fan of the wind haha. Especially the really strong gusts that can make breathing difficult. So I ended up with 7 miles instead of the 8 I had originally planned on doing, but I’m not to worried about that. It was still a pretty good run.

Sunday:

  • Rest Day

I was feeling kinda bleh on Sunday. That had me a little bit worried for a little bit, because I’ve heard about some kind of awful stomach bug that’s going around and I DO NOT WANT IT!!!! Apparently it involves lots of fluids coming out of both ends. Obviously neither of those things would be fun, but I hate vomiting more than pretty much anything I can think of. It’s the absolute worst in my opinion and I will make myself even more miserable by fighting it for as long as I can. Yeah, that usually doesn’t go well for me, but I hate puking… Luckily neither Luke or myself have gotten that bug though, so hopefully we’ll remain healthy until that thing blows over.

Anyway, Sunday was also the “big game” day football thing. Not gonna lie. I hate football. I don’t understand football. I think football is boring. Haha this tweet sums up my night quite nicely though. And Michelob Ultra replied which was kinda neat haha.

Also, probably an unpopular opinion, but I thought the Justin Timberlake halftime show was terrible… Like, what the hell happened to music?!? Why does it have to be some big, grand, crazy performance instead of a musician just preforming their songs… I don’t know man, I don’t get it. And what was with the Prince thing?!? I mean, didn’t at one point Prince say that was exactly the kind of thing he’d never want to happen?? So I feel like that was kinda disrespectful. Whatever…

Plus I don’t think Justin Timberlake that great. Good grief I feel like I must be getting old, complaining about the popular music that kids these days are listening to. But in all fairness, he’s like 10 years older than me, and I very clearly remember theΒ NSYNC/Back Street Boy rivalry thing. I was always more of a Backstreet Boys girl. Haha that’s a lie, I was more of a just getting into rock music, but mostly into Disney movie sound tracks and lots of country music type of girl. But when asked to pick a side, it was always the Backstreet Boys. πŸ˜‰ But anyway, I’m getting waaaaay off topic here. I’ve got nothing else relevant to say about my week. So I’ll end there. With my rant about music haha.

Happy Monday!! I hope you’re not too hungover/stuffed full of chips and dip/disappointed with the outcome of the game this morning! πŸ˜‰

    Football is so boring. I like to watch the Super Bowl just to tweet jokes to go along with the commercials, but even that felt boring this year, so I went food shopping instead. And the store was TOTALLY EMPTY. It was great!

    I thought I would be hung over (because I suck at drinking alcohol these days)….but instead think I have the cold going around today. 😦 Hoping it’s not the flu, but squeezed in a PR on a 4.2mi course to pretend I’m not sick! Stay away from that nasty both ends business!

      You. Are. A Badass. lol that’s a pretty impressive feat to accomplish when you’re sick (or I mean, definitely not sick or coming down with a cold lol πŸ˜‰). Haha I’m doing my best! I don’t want anything to do with that!!

    Your dogs are just so freakin’ cute ohmygosh.
    Yeah, people always tell me about this and that new music they’re into, and they say “what about you?” And I’m just like “well, I found a recording of Andras Schiff playing the Goldberg Variations, so that’s been my jam lately…” LOL

      Thank you!! Hahaha yup, that sounds about right. Although for me it’s been more of β€œI’ve been super into punk rock lately!!”, β€œbut Ashley, haven’t you always been into that stuff??”, β€œyeah but now I’ve delved even MORE into it.”. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I probably need to branch out more. Actually I’ve also been listening to a lot of classical piano. Lol I used to take piano lessons when I was in grade school and I really want to get a key board and re learn how to play!

        You can always start again though. If you know the basics it shouldn’t be too hard to get back into it. Of course then there’s the danger that you might start pining for an acoustic piano. Pianos. Not cheap instruments. Sigh.

        That’s what I’ve been thinking. I’ve been taught the basics, so I should be able to remember a lot of it with some practice! Ugh, right!!! When my sisters and I were taking piano lessons my parents bought a beautiful baby grand piano. It wasn’t a super fancy one (I don’t remember the brand), but it was still crazy expensive…man, do I miss that thing though.
