So yesterday in the midst of all of the good dayness, I actually went to the gym and ran a mile and a half! It felt good, doesn’t appear that I have lost any speed (I use the word speed lightly of course). I had to tell myself to stop at a mile and a half, because I am just easing into it. I felt like I could’ve run an extra 8.5 miles after my mile and a half but it’s really ok. My knee is still being whatever, and my shin (you must be sick of hearing all this) but they don’t really hurt today and I only felt them for a little bit after my run, so I think I just need to get on the treadmill/ outside if it isn’t 4 degrees and keep running a little bit. I will be ok. Finished up with a few sprints and some leg lifts, pushups, dips. Got to keep those wedding arms in mind from here until June 21! 🙂
Then I rushed straight home, showered, and got ready for a lovely date/ celebration at the Cheesecake Factory! I even snapped a pic of my fine fine Midwestern style for you guys!
I know, a cardigan and a scarf, so original! But I was rockin a little color at least, in hopes that I can force spring to come out by totally denying that it’s cold/ gloomy anymore. Of course though, I did just finish my super intense mile and a half workout before I went to dinner, so I had to rock these guys too:
It’s important to compress guys! Oh my gosh the sarcasm is overwhelming really. I did something else fun yesterday, in my excitement about the job, I ordered a Birchbox! I have heard so much about them and finally decided that I need a little help in the beauty department and should give it a try. It’s $10 every month and they send you little samples of hair/makeup stuff according to a little profile you fill out. I have one hair and makeup routine (see picture 1) that I do whenever I need to look presentable. I just have awful hair. As well as awful skin. But I do have blue eyes that I love just to keep things positive around here! Anyway, yesterday was a fun day all around. Happy camper over here!!
