What did we do this week?
You all know my week last week was full of heart ache. I did go to the gym two times, did a 3 mile run and a 5 mile walk and spent the rest of the week consoling Baylee. The weekend picked up a little as I saw an old friend, went to a Maroon 5 concert, and then met Blogger Meg ( from Meg Go Run). We got together at a park and did a very long walk and talked a lot! She is SO sweet! We could have stayed there all day but it was like 100 degrees and we were both dripping with sweat after a couple of hours. Yes we talked and walked for hours! -M
Saturday morning I woke up and had to teach Body Pump. Usually after Body Pump I teach RPM(cycling) but there was a Zumba party going on so I thought I would take that. After taking it, I've mad the conclusion that I am not coordinated nor have any rhythm. There were many people there that didn't have the coordination as well so I didn't feel too out of place. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you get out there and do it. Zumba may not be my thing but I think it is a great workout for people that want to just have fun and dance. After class I felt that I didn't get the most out of a cardio workout so I ended up running four miles around town. -L
The rest of the day I had a quiet afternoon and watched a couple movies. The next morning I planned on doing a semi long run, but I slept in too long and only managed to complete three miles. It was way to hot and humid! I came home and made buffalo chicken dip for the Eagles game that afternoon. We just relaxed and watched the game. I was sent a pair of compression socks in the Rock n Blog box that were way to big for me, but they fit Bad Ass perfect!
This was the first time he ever tried them on and he wouldn't stop talking about them the rest of the day about how good they felt after all the running he has been doing. He always sees me wearing them and I think he felt like he was missing out by not having a pair. Well now he does. My sister and I were both sent a Rock n Blog running box filled with goodies. I was happy to be able to share some of them with him. Let's take a look inside and see what else Competitor was generous enough to send us!
Compression socks, lots of fuel and goodies, a gift card, a battery charger for all our devices, and a really cool running hat by Brooks.
This is why I thought this hat was so cool, it has a zipper in it. I've never seen a hat with a zipper in it before. I believe it would be difficult to store fuel or something I would need for a run inside it but it might be convenient to store a key in it.
And of course we received Rock n Blog tech shirts!
How was your weekend?
