I love weekends. I love getting to wake up whenever I want to. I love being able to take my time at the gym. I love having more time to cook meals. I love being able to move at whatever speed I want to. And what I love the most, is girl time with those that I don’t get to see too often.
After a quick, but very busy and stressful week at work, I was more than ready for a weekend of fun that would make up for a hectic 2nd half of my work week.
I started my weekend on Saturday morning with a very tough tempo run. I was really exhausted going into this, so I knew it would be tough. Add on the fact that I wore fleece-lined running pants in an already hot gym, and I was tiredX2. I got it done, even though I wanted to quit halfway through the tempo run. I actually will quit an “easy” run over a harder run, such as HIIT, tempo, fartlek, etc. Maybe because I know that completing a difficult run will make me feel badass and leads to success.
After my run, I was starving. So I decided to cook up 1 serving of chicken stir-fry… at 10 am. Such a weird breakfast, but it was what I was craving, so I went along with it!
After breakfast, I cleaned the house a bit and got some work done before heading to Boston for a girl’s day/night. We got to Brighton a little after 2, and Michelle, Lindsay, Nicole and I spent a few hours chatting and watching a movie before dinner.
Around 4:45 we headed into Cambridge for dinner, where we dined at The Asgard, an Irish restaurant. The food for me was a let down, and I found myself shoving a protein bar down my throat in hour later from hunger!
Once we finished dinner, we headed a few blocks over to Improv Boston to catch the 7 pm showing of “Dear Diary,” which touched upon all things 90s. They even did a skit about Dream Phone!
On Sunday I slept until about 8:50, and pretty much changed into running clothes, got my gym bag together, and headed out the door. On the schedule was a 4 mile run. I am trying to build up my longer run so that once I start training for me 1/2, these longer distances won’t be foreign to me. I did 4 miles last Saturday, so I want to slowly increase the distance each week. I will probably do 1-2 more 4 mile runs before I add another half mile to it. Slow and steady keeps me from getting injured! 🙂
After the run, I stopped by the grocery store to grab some food so I didn’t have to make an additional trip after showering. The next few hours were spent meal prepping a few stir-fry meals for lunches, eating, doing laundry, and then getting the Larabar packages ready for mailing! And that’s a Sarah Fit vlog keeping me entertained.
What was the best part of your weekend?
