Last week was exciting in that the Official Event guide for Tink is online. I did a little happy dance in my chair at work, and thankfully I'm in an office. No one saw that happy wiggle. To add excitement for the expo, I ordered a shirt from Raw Threads, and chose the "pick up at expo" option. I've scoped out where their booth will be so I can be in and out of the expo as quickly as possible. Bib, D&B bag, Raw Threads shirt.
And waivers!! Waivers posted Saturday and I printed it off :-) I have my bib number too, and I did 4 pain free miles on Saturday. I was feeling motivated with Marathon Monday coming up and I was so happy to get 4 miles done. My ITB was tired by the end, and probably would've twinged if I had done more. But I was aiming for 4 miles, and I stopped at 4. I also ordered a knee brace for ITB, for some extra stability. I love REI because when I ordered it from there, they knocked off $30 from the retail price. I would've ordered from the retailer, but shipping was $13, so I wanted to see what REI would charge. When I added the brace to my REI cart, I saw the discount. Bonus!
Sunday was a very lazy day. We have days of t-storms ahead of us, and Sunday was the first day. It rained in the morning, and since I'd already done my grocery shopping, I sat on the couch and snuggled with Allie. I did go to Pure Barre, so it wasn't all laziness, and now when I'm at Pure Barre, I'm focusing on what my PT has said in order to engage the glutes and hips. I'm definitely feeling the seat exercises by focusing on her advice. I can't wait to wear my new Raw Threads shirt to class.
I decided to nest with the rainy day and I made chocolate chip cookies :)
