One month to go

Happy Thursday everyone!  I love when short weeks seem to fly by.  I also think I would always much rather have a Monday off then a Friday.  It seems easier to just drag yourself to work for one more day, and a Monday off feels more rewarding.  Just me?

Last night I hit the gym for my workout since it was still 90 degrees outside at 4 pm.  Surprisingly I had a great treadmill workout and no knee pain!

  • 32 minutes total (something like 3.1 miles)
  • 5 minute warm-up (.4 miles)
  • 2.5 mile run (about 23 or 24 minutes)
  • 3 minute cool-down

I was a sweaty mess afterwards and did some stretching, abs, and push-ups.  Pigeon pose is like my bff, I spend a lot of time in it after a run.  I will never neglect stretching my IT Bands again.

Dinner was a California Pizza Kitchen Frozen Pizza, the Spinach and Artichoke one again, it might just be my new favorite.

It really took all of my self-control to not eat the entire thing, I had to make myself put it into the fridge so it would stop staring at me.  I’m very excited because I don’t have PT tonight, the therapist took a vacation day or something, so I think the sis and I are making kabobs, whoooo!

Even more exciting news is that this time next month I will be en route to the Outer Banks, NC for my week-long beach vacay.  I haven’t been since 2008 so I’m pretty pumped.  Here are some of my fav pics from various OBX trips.

This is in Duck at one of our fav restaurants

Enjoying some Alaskan King Crab Legs

And here’s where we’ll be staying in Duck this year!

Just Beachy!

I know my sister is going to yell at me for counting down the summer away, but I really just want to be on vacation!

  1. Crab legs picture = the best ever.

  2. I’ve sort of become addicted to frozen pizzas lately. I’ll have to try that one out!! Looks great!! 🙂

  3. I don’t think I have seen your hair curly before..it is so cute!!!

  4. I’ve never done the OBX thing. But then I get bored easily on beach vay-cays. Can’t stay down the shore for more than 48 hours; give me a cruise ship, theme park, or guided tour any day. At least then I have things to keep me moving; I don’t do “relaxing” very well!

    • Sometimes I like that, but sometimes I just want to relax on the beach and read. We’ll probably go horseback riding or something one day.

  5. Way to go on the run! With no pain! YES!

    And I’m so jealous of your beach vacay… I’m supposed to be taking a family vacay to florida in august, but I think the ‘rents are freaking out about the oil spill (Which I guess we should). So my week on the beach gets cancelled yet another year! bummer…

    • They really need to get that oil spill under control, I mean for more reasons then it potentially ruining your vacation, but stilL!

  6. That beach house looks awesome! I’m so ready for vacation too! I’ve gotta try that pizza soon..it looks really yummy!

  7. ah looks like so much fun! I’d be counting down the days too!

  8. I want to go! Looks sooo fun!

    Congrats on the pain-free run!

  9. LOVE the outer banks. my family goes to duck every year. i’ve been there ever since i was a wee bit. is that house in schooners ridge? it looks like one we’ve stayed at before.

    where is your favorite restaurant?

    such a peaceful little part of the world!

  10. Yay for your pain-free run! And yay x 2 for beachy vacations.

  11. Oh I love pigeon pose. I could stay there forever.
