For some reason when I sat down to write about my weekend I got total writer’s block. Maybe that’s because not a whole lot happened? Or possibly because I am slightly sucked into the episode of Parenthood that I am watching (thank you all for encouraging me to keep watching it- it’s definitely gotten better!) So anyway, let’s talk about the weekend, exciting or not.
Lately our weekends have been pretty busy with packing and furniture shopping. (Fun right? I realized how old it felt to be wandering around Home Depot while a few years ago I would have been getting drunk celebrating St. Patrick’s Day).
On Saturday morning it was pouring rain, and Rob was running in the DC half. After making the trek down on Thursday and with the less-than-ideal conditions I opted out of spectating. Rob said the weather was pretty awful, but he managed to PR anyway!
I did my PT exercises and a little bit of easy yoga while he was gone, and did most of my weekly meal prep. Once he got home we headed out to the stores for furniture shopping. On Saturday night we watched Mockingjay Part 1 with a couple glasses of wine.
On Sunday I felt like I needed to do some cardio since I haven’t run since last Monday on the alter-g. I haven’t really been able to figure out a cross-training option that feels good, so I decided to give swimming a try. My gym doesn’t have an indoor pool, but I was able to go to a different location on the other side of the city. I got there right when it opened at 8 and swam for 30 minutes. If you read my blog last summer you may remember that I tried to learn how to swim and didn’t make much progress. The whole breathing thing is what really throws me off.
After my swim I got a haircut (which took way longer than expected) and grabbed a Starbucks. By the time I started to drive back across the city there was a ton of traffic because of the St. Patricks Day 5k that would be later that afternoon. Gotta love sitting in the car for 45 minutes to go 3 miles.
Sunday afternoon was more furniture shopping, a little fro-yo, and relaxing. I’m off from work Monday for our new home orientation (walkthrough) and inspection! Not exactly a fun day off, but still important things and it means we are really close to being able to move in!
I’m linking up with Tara today to share my weekend update!
