As I predicted yesterday morning, we had a very relaxed Valentine’s Day. Our dogs were a big fan.
We spent most of the day hanging out watching the Olympics while the pups slept. I got a bunch of my reading done during the curling so I was free for the excitement of the figure skating and women’s aerials. Yesterday’s favorite moments: Abbott’s free skate redemption and the women’s aerials winner from Belarus…34 years old! Those girls were throwing some insane tricks and everyone kept saying how her even being in the final was a surprise and she goes and wins. There were some really good events on when I woke up and I knew I wanted to watch aerials and skating live later so I timed my trip to the gym when curling was the only thing on. Please tell me that’s normal haha. 6 treadmill miles to get me back into the swing of things and Ab Ripper X when I came home. I’m not back on Insanity until Monday but just so you know, I’m doing P90x abs instead of Insanity abs throughout the program, I just like them better. I’ve been doing the p90x abs for a few years since I finished the program. I’ve been switching things up at least once a week with a NTC ab workout instead 🙂 In case you can’t tell, core is my favorite thing to work and always has been. I have to be convinced kicking and screaming to work out anything else but I would do abs forever. Funny fact: I once skipped gym when I was 11 because we were doing a rotation of a few weeks at the pool to swim for PE and I was NOT going to swim during school then again at practice after school. But I felt guilty doing nothing while my friends were swimming so I decided to see how many situps I could do. I got to over 1000 before I decided I didn’t need to know if the number was higher and ate potato chips while I waited for them to come back. Apparently, I was pretty much exactly the same as I am now.
Joe was thinking pasta or burgers most of the day for our dinner but I managed to convince him that pizza was the way to go 😉 Woohoo!
Toppings: pulled pork, garlic oil, lime zest, fresh cilantro, red jalapenos. SO FREAKING DELICIOUS. Don’t worry, I put onion rings on it after the picture. You don’t think I can eat pizza without onion rings now, do you? We had game night and Joe won 7 games of UNO to my 3. Frustrated is an understatement, good thing there was red wine.
The speed skating is on right now so I won’t be hitting the roads too early, I’ll probably wait another hour until it’s over. Easy 5 or 6 again today, but the question is, what do I run tomorrow? Do I run the planned long run or wait because I took that week off? I’m thinking cut it short but I also know that barely any fitness is lost in a week so I’m not sure it’s a terrible idea to run 14ish. You can vote in the comments 😉
Favorite games that 2 people can play?
14 miles or 7 miles tomorrow?
