How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful, although I was not nearly as productive as I set out to be. But that’s okay because I forced myself to relax and take some time to myself! Always a good call.
Quick recap of the weekend:
Friday night was Pizza Night! We stuck with a classic: pepperoni and sausage, but added black olives on my half. Delicious. We also used dairy free cheese on my end, and surprisingly, it still tasted great! Nevermind the fact that on Saturday I had a cheese quesadilla dipped in queso. I’m not so good at this avoiding cheese thing.
Saturday I slept mostly all day on and off, then cleaned the house. Then Sunday after church I took myself down to the pool and laid out for two hours. Hello first sunburn of the summer. Forgot that my stomach hasn’t seen the sun in possibly over a year. I was also very envious of the lifeguards, and was tempted to tell them, “you have no idea how good you have it!” I lifeguarded several summers in college, and spending time at the pool yesterday made me miss those days!
Last night we hosted our life group, and chowed down on a Taco Bar and Sopapilla Cheesecake. Thank goodness that bikini was pre-taco night! But really.
What should I have done all weekend? Run. And then run some more. I haven’t run in over a week, and it’s starting to really make me feel guilty and lazy! I won’t get to today either, but hopefully tomorrow I can get back to my routine. It’s been raining here for almost a week, and even though that’s not a good excuse, I just can’t make myself get out and run in the rain.
It’s so hard for me sometimes to stay motivated to run everyday when I’m not training for something specific. My next 5k isn’t until the end of this month so I guess in the back of my head I know I’ve got plenty of time to train for it. Plus, it’s a course I’ve run before so I know it’s pretty flat and fast! You can read last year’s recap of it here.
I’ve got a couple reviews and giveaways coming up, so stay posted!!
How do you stay motivated to run when you’re not training for something? What did you do this weekend?
