I love weekends. Specifically Saturday.
I always squeeze in a GREAT workout after my Friday rest day…then I get to relax and slow down to enjoy my afternoons.
And then when I get nights like tonight that I get to go out for a few hours and enjoy friends, that’s just perfect 🙂
My friend Amanda from grad school (who ALSO just ran her first half marathon, AND is getting married next month), got me out of the house for a few hours :).
We went to Caveau Wine Bar here in Denver, and enjoyed a couple glasses of happy hour Riesling as well as a split appetizer and entree. Hello goat cheese and artichoke bruchetta and pizza. YUM.
I wanted to enjoy the evening out with my friend, so I didn’t take any pictures while I was there…plus the lightly was poor. But I definitely enjoyed my first experience at Caveau. Sometimes a girls night out is exactly what you need. Who am I kidding, it’s always what you need :).
Funny story though: I took my wallet out of my purse this morning when I went grocery shopping after work. I needed lunch, so I ran by Vitamin Cottage after my work out to get a sandwich.
The sandwich was delish..and totally worth the 599 cost. I’d definitely do it again.
I wore my ski coat when I took Gus out for a walk this morning, because it was still cold and I wanted to chalk up some miles for my Pile on the Miles challenge this month.
Well…I wore a dressier coat to the bar tonight, and was running late when I walked out of the door for dinner tonight…
When the check came with dinner, and I reached into my purse. . . my wallet was missing.
Thankfully, Amanda is a great sport and laughed it off…and she drove me home (I walked the 2 miles there again to keep adding up the miles), and I got her money when she dropped me off. Upps!
Thankfully I didn’t get ID’d!
I completed 11.13 miles between walks and my run this morning today (woot woot!) so I’m up to 12.13 miles total for the Pile on the Miles.
And I also completed Piper’s 30 Thigh Challenge. On the books today:
- 8 lateral lunges
- 15 scissors
- 8 fire hydrants
- 8 pile squat pulses
Done and done. Loving these challenges so far. Keeping me accountable.
And on top of that, I got bored this afternoon and tried another travel WOD.
- 20 rounds of :
- 5 squats
- 5 push ups
- 5 sit ups
Good lord I was a busy girl today. Something tells me I may be sore tomorrow. Woooof!
Happy Saturday All 🙂
