Shenanigans… and some business

Did ya think I left you again? No such luck suckers, just had a busy weekend that didn’t technically wrap up until 5:30 last night when I finally returned to my house. Let’s get business out of the way before we talk fun.

On Friday I drug myself over to the gym for a light upper-body lifting session, and some abs because it’s important to have a strong core or something. I needed to be done my long run by 10 am on Saturday so I spent Friday evening with my boyfriend, Chris Hemsworth.

Look at this man, I can’t even, I mean no words

I picked up Rush from the good old Redbox and watch the whole movie twice. I watched the first 10 minutes more times than that, but that’s neither here nor there and if you’ve seen the movie you know why. I thought it was really good, and enjoyed it immensely.

Saturday I was out my door and on the bike path at 8:45 am, with 5 miles on the agenda. It was not an easy run, and I had a super achy right calf the entire time, but I finished in what I think should be about my long run pace.

5 miles

It was hot, I lost one of the long sleeves I was wearing with about 3 miles left and tied it around my waist. I also apparently kicked the shit out of myself, literally, as the inside of my right ankle was bleeding when I got home. This isn’t new, I used to do it during my high school track days. I swear I was constantly walking around with cuts from my spikes. Meh, the Twitterz tells me I need to do some glute work to correct the weakness and alignment issues. We’ll see.

The rest of the weekend was full of excessive drinking, and powering through hangovers. On Saturday afternoon, a giant group of my friends met up at Bull Run Winery for a 30th birthday celebration, and then I was on the road bright and early (ok it was 10:45) on Sunday headed to Harrisonburg. I had a JMU basketball game and Super Bowl party to get, fun fact I’ve now attended more JMU basketball games 6.5 years after graduating than I ever did in college.

So close to pulling off the win!

That little Instagram box up in the right corner has some more pictures from the weekend, FYI. All in all a good training week and a good life week. 11.5 miles logged running and some good cross training.

Short and Sweet

I’m wearing white jeans today, but I have declared it acceptable to wear white before Memorial Day since it’s going to be 82 degrees.  You’re welcome.

I haven’t blogged since Tuesday because I am really boring, and there’s only so many times I want you to have to read “and then I watched TV in bed.”  You’re welcome.

I ate another turkey burger for dinner last night.  I think it was delicious, but I can’t be sure since my senses were already numb from three glasses of wine.  It didn’t stop there.  My head hurts today.

Darren and I talk about nothing but houses these days, and most of those phone calls end with one of us yelling in frustration.  We’re not actually mad at each other, but over the hoops and paper work that comes with buying a house. I am crossing my fingers and toes that this lame ass process is wrapped up by the time he gets here to visit next month.  Counter-offer number FOUR was submitted this morning.  Barf.

I’m meeting my girl Kacy for drinks tonight, because it has been far too long since that has happened.  As I previously mentioned, it’s going to be 83, so those drinks will be had outdoors and probably in great quantity.

Assuming I’m not throwing up tomorrow, there is a 87% chance of me going to see The Hunger Games alone in the middle of the day.  I am so excited.

I have an “engagement” party to attend tomorrow night.  Engagement is in quotes because there will only be females at this party, and there may or may not be the opportunity to purchase things.  For the bedroom.  Ahem.

Happy Weekend!

The League

So, I’ll admit, I was pretty excited to flip my calendar over to September this morning.  That could have more to do with my love of a fresh new clean month of the calendar to look at than the fact that it’s September though.  Yup, one of my favorite things to do is colorfully add weekend plans to the month as they come up.  I’m a freak.

Despite the still 80 and 90 degree days, September means the start of fall, and with talks of winery trips, zoo visits, joining of a flag football team, and actual football starting I am a happy girl. The beginning of football season is nearly upon us, and last night my house was the location of a yearly tradition I first became a part of back in 2008.  The Fantasy Football Draft!  This was the scene in my living room at 8 pm last night:

There were two more of us out of view sitting at the table in the corner.  This was the first year I was able to participate in the “live” draft, since for all the previous ones I was alone in PA.  It’s much more fun with other people around.  The draft started at 8:30 and things wrapped up about 2 hours later.  I think I’m happy with my team, but only time will tell!  Somewhat related, I am sporting a wine headache today.  Ugh.

Moving on to things that don’t involve drinking a whole bottle of wine and baked potato flavored potato chips.  Yesterday I managed to squeak out 45 minutes on the elliptical during lunch, and have I mentioned my abs are still sore from Monday?  Well, they are.  Uh today’s plan was to run, but aforementioned wine headache may derail those plans.  Woof.

Anyway, the last official weekend of summer is almost here, and I have no plans, haha.  What a loser.  So tell me what you guys are up to, anyone got anything good going on?  I’m just hoping to get out of here a little early tomorrow and maybe hit the pool one last time.
