Happy long weekend! I swear, all these breaks with work, and full weeks are difficult to deal with :-p Last week seemed so long since I had to work all 5 days. Wednesday this week is half day since I'm taking if off for some family time.
This past weekend I finally got back to my normal weekend routine. I knocked off 2.75 miles, and Sunday I got to Pure Barre after more than a month. I knew the class would hurt, and I did struggle a little bit. I ended up planking better than I thought I would, so it was a good mix. I did movements in class I've never done before, and I'll wait and see how sore I am tomorrow.
I also got out and explored Boulder a little bit. It's not warm enough for me to get out on foot, so I went to a further grocery store to drive a little bit, and coming back I drove through The Hill, which is a student area for Boulder students. It wasn't busy at all when I drove through, but I'm also learning Boulder is a late-rising town, outside of the runners and bikers. The area was probably busier later in the day, plus students are coming back for the spring semester.
Once the weather's a little bit warmer, I hope to get on the running path. As my mom put it, my blood is Texas thin, and I don't have any "in-between" running gear. I have capris that are good for spring weather, and leggings that are good for winter weather, but nothing for the 40-degree day. It was cloudy this weekend, and with no sun, no extra warmth. I was on the treadmill for my run Saturday afternoon, then I played it low key after Pure Barre on Sunday. A book I'd been waiting for was published, so I downloaded that onto my Kindle to read a little bit while football was happening. I don't watch football, so I needed something else to do. The book is the second in the Veronica Speedwell mysteries, and is called A Perilous Undertaking. The first new book of 2017!
Sherlock wrapped up Sunday too (seasons are very short but episodes are 90 minutes), and finally! Victoria debuted on PBS. I've been waiting for this one for a while, and was excited for it to start. I've heard it's been renewed for a second season in the UK, so I already know there's more to come.
Also good news, we have a Nothing Bundt Cakes in Boulder. That's very important since that's going to be my birthday cake. I'll have to pick one up next weekend to get ready for my birthday, and I know the flavor. Their rotating flavor of the month for January is chocolate turtle. That's the one!
