This weekend made me feel old. I had s-o much fun, but apparently I can’t keep up anymore like I used to be able to in college. Nights out, hard workouts and concerts leave me needing lots of sleep. Enough small talk, here was what my weekend looked like!
Girl’s night out with Lindsay! I headed to her condo around 6 and we immediately hit the road to El Rodeo, a Mexican restaurant that we love.
I enjoyed 1 Mich Ultra & Linds had a margarita, and we spent a few hours chatting away about our favorite topics: men! Haha
There’s a TJ Maxx right next to El Rodeo so I requested that we go there so I can shop for my apartment. We found it necessary to take pictures in the mirrors. There’s nothing better than having a best friend that you can stay young with.
We had planned on having an early night, but before we knew it, we weren’t at her condo until almost 10! After that, I headed home, and was asleep around 11:30. Such a fun night!!
I just wanted to sleep in, but because I’m trying to start my long runs at the same time my half marathon will start, I forced myself up around 7:15. Okay, so I might not be perfect yet, but I have 8 weeks!
I spent a little over an hour catching up on my DVR, eating breakfast and doing a bit of mobility so that I could attempt 8 miles. Since I ran 7 for the first time the week before, I wasn’t extremely comfortably increasing my distance by 1 mile in 7 days, so my #1 goal was to hit 7.5 miles, but I told myself that I would also be okay with 7 miles. I made it to 7.35 miles and wanted to cry. I don’t want to run a half marathon anymore haha. This crap is hard!
After running, I quickly showered, ate and headed out with my Mom to shop for apartment stuff! Nate Berkus is my design inspiration for my bathroom. Absolutely loving everything I bought for it so far!
And then it was off to Massachusetts for the Kip Moore/Dierks Bentley concert with Allie & Kris!
We didn’t get home until after 2 am, and all I wanted was to sleep. I slept from about 2:30 until 9 am, and “headed” to the gym, but I was so exhausted that I ended up detouring to Target to shop. Haha! I don’t even regret it because I need to listen to my body. After running 7.35 miles and then sleeping very little, I knew a rest day was what my body would benefit the most from.
After shopping, I enjoyed a protein shake on the couch while watching The Big Bang Theory, and then headed out for my god-daughter’s baptism. Brinkley babe! <3
In bed and reading at 8 and lights out at 9. I feel like a grandma!
Who is your favorite singer/band to see in concert?
Chips & salsa or bread & butter at a restaurant?
