Weekly Update and Weekend Fun

A day late, but better than never I guess. Woof, last week, this weekend. So much going ons.

This weekend was a whirlwind! Husbandface and I drove down to NYC Saturday morning because we got tickets for a live taping of How Did This Get Made. If you’ve never listend to that podcast you totally should. It’s totally hilarious and about terrible movies. We did the Empire State Building and Irving Plaza for the show before driving back. It was a long day and we didn’t get home until after 3am.

Sunday we went to the commencement ceremony at the college Rob works for. We don’t go every year, but the weather was amazing and he wanted to see one of his student workers give a speech. It was a nice day to sit outside in the sunshine and it’s always fun to hear speeches. I wasn’t feeling very good, so I kind of put a damper on it for us, but it was still nice. After that we did some errands and shopping then went to see the new Pitch Perfect movie. By the time we got done with that I sat down to athlete calendars then pretty much just went to bed.

Monday, back at it.

Last week I got a couple of workouts in. Not as many as I had hoped for, but I still got out there. Rob and I went for one run together, doing the 1.85 mile loop around our neighborhood. And we went to gym together one evening too. I did about 20 minutes on the spin bike then lifted for a bit. My arms are looking really flabby lately, so I want to make a conscious effort to lift more. I did cut my usual weigh in half, but it still felt great to get in some strength training.

I’ve been put on a temporary running hold by my doctors. I mean, it was optional, but suggested for just a week. Our genetic testing appointment for the 29th got bumped up to tomorrow and I was told it would be in my best interest to just hold off for a few days, so that’s where I’m at right now.

I’ll have my usual Hump Day Bump Day update tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll have lots of good news on the pregnancy front soon after that too.

We do have the BASE Race this weekend, so I’m hoping I’m cleared to run. Otherwise we’ll still at least go do Cooperstown, but I really want to be able to run. Fingers crossed!

  1. I’ve never been to NYC. I here it is a lot like Rome…busy, busy, busy. I hope everything turns out well and in your favor for running this weekend! ๐Ÿ˜‰
