Wow. I can't believe the Olympics are over already. Can y'all? I feel like "now what?" 2018 for the winter games at least. I didn't watch the closing ceremonies either. If they were going to be anything like the opening ceremonies and NBC showing commercials with a dash of ceremony, no thanks. I stuck with movies.
Not much happened on the workout front this week. I was waiting for the blister on my heel to come to the surface so I could take care of it, but it hasn't yet. At least things were feeling better on Thursday, but I wanted to make certain it was getting better. I so so so wanted to run on Tuesday, but i made the smart decision to hold off and let it heal. This is the first time in a while where I was itching to run, but couldn't. I hope that's a good sign. I know the temps will warm up again, but I'm hoping we are done with the 100s, plus heat index.
My ornament came on Friday, and it's super cute. It's a singing ornament, but I haven't listened to the song yet. My main concern is checking to make sure ornaments are in one piece. I ended up watching Beauty and the Beast because I had Belle's song in my head, despite not listening to the ornament, and was inspired to put the DVD in. Why not? I love the movie and it was a good 90-ish minutes on the couch.
Saturday I went to Pure Barre, which I hope to get back to regularly. The last 6 weeks have been crazy, and I've been about twice, which I certainly felt yesterday. I didn't really think Saturday's class was that bad, but I woke up sore, in many places. It was a good kind of sore, but I was definitely foam rolling and stretching things out yesterday afternoon. I had to stretch slowly because I felt every knot in my body. Yes, definitely need to get back on a regular basis. Now that the summer seems to be winding down, I hope to get things back to normal.
I also finally decided on a race to do this fall. I just couldn't settle on any physical race and decided to register for one of Gone For a Run's virtual races. I can choose my own course, I don't have to worry about packet pick up, and yet it gives me motivation to get it done. I chose the Race for the White House 4-miler, and proceeds go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. It'll be my first time doing a GFAR virtual race, but I like the swag already.
