Monday... again. I can't wait for Alaska since I'll have a whole week off. Two days is just way too short.
I got out for a run Saturday morning, and holy craptastic! The first run back is always rough, and I stuck to one mile. My cardio system got quite the shock after having a month off. I didn't even bike during that time. I did a one-mile loop around my neighborhood, then came back home and sprawled out on the living room floor. Once I recovered, I did some prehab before hitting the grocery store. I'm still sticking with pasta dishes from the frozen section. It's super easy, and I'm not wracking my brain about what I can eat.
The rest of Saturday was spent watching the World Cup, USA track and field championships, and then Home Improvement on UP. It's funny to see the kids so young, and the 90s fashions. It's like when Friends started - the hair, clothes, phones.
I broke down and bought NBC Gold's pass for track and field. The thing that got me was "commercial free." I'll be able to watch all of the track and field, and fall marathons, without commercials. It's not something I usually go for, but when NBC can't even show a full 3000m steeplechase race without going to commercial, I get irritated.
Sunday was lazy again, watching the World Cup and reading a new book I downloaded. I still don't know who I want to win the Cup, and it's been a strange tournament so far. None of the favorites are playing well, and the top 3 scoring teams are England, Belgium, and Russia. It's a bit unexpected, and I like it. While I was watching Japan and Senegal, I did some weight training to jump back into that. Once I'm warmed up and in this routine, I'll break out the full Pure Barre routines.
We had storms roll through, and I was hoping to read outside and enjoy the cooler air, but it was a bit too cool, with wind. Wah wah. At least I got to spend time snuggling with Allie while I read. We don't really snuggle that much in the summer, with the heat. She piled almost on top of my shoulder, purring in my ear.
I wrapped up the evening watching Hidden Figures.
Linking up with Holly and Wendy for Weekend Wrap-up.
