My week had a whole bunch of ups and down but I did know one thing. I was so SORE this weekend. I was very thankful for some couch time and some foam rolling.
I started the morning with a short run. Jordan’s bike had a flat so I ran at the park instead of the trails. I felt like the heat and humidity made me slower. My quads were still on fire since I had tough workouts this week. So you can imagine my surprise when I finished my two miles and saw that I averaged an 8:44 pace. That’s pretty speedy for me so I was glad I pushed through and kept going!
I learned about a free yoga event held by a local spin and yoga studio. It was a free Power Flow classes outdoors. I figured I would stop by so after my run, I ate a quick breakfast and was on my way!
It was so nice doing yoga outdoors since the sun wasn’t right above us. Of course the sweat was pouring but because it was warm, I was able to stretch and get deeper into some poses. The practice was so good and the teacher even encouraged binds and gave us time to practice. I was so proud of myself because I was able to bind while working keeping my balance! There’s some days where I have my yoga act together, haha!
The event also had a live DJ providing the music and I thought that was pretty neat! I love events like these because it’s a chance to explore the community and meet others in the Houston fitness community.
After yoga, I cleaned up and we were off to do our errands for the day! Like I mentioned before, Jordan’s bike had a flat so we took it back to Bike Barn to get it looked at. While Jordan was with the mechanics, I was looking at all the energy gels. I didn’t take a picture but there were so many flavors! We may have to come back just so I can stock up for my long runs.
We stopped by the mall for a quick lunch and then we were on our way to get a mattress! Our bed was basically a hand me down and we’ve had it for years so it was time for a new one. It was definitely interesting trying to find a bed that firm enough for me and soft enough for him. Luckily we found one and they were able to get us delivery for Sunday! It was actually a pleasant experience. Jordan and I were joking around the whole time and there was a time where the salesman thought Jordan was actually asleep since he was splayed out on a mattress at one point!
Once we were all scheduled for the delivery, Jordan and I drove back home. We attempted to get Snowflake’s nails trimmed but it looks like she is due for her shots so we’d have to get her a vet appointment.
I made a homemade pizza and we watched Fury to end the day. Honestly, I wasn’t a fan of it. The acting is okay but the story was underwhelming. Plus it’s rated R and we just don’t watch too many movies like that.
I woke up so SORE. Yoga was lovely but it opened up another can of soreness. My husband was wide awake and ready for a walk in the park. I, however, was moving at the speed of molasses. We got there however and I walked!
Goose update! We believe she’s still nesting but her little head was hidden and we didn’t want to disturb her. The other goose won’t leave the area and peck at anyone who gets too close. I hope people leave her alone and she’s able to keep her baby warm.
We had donuts for breakfast and headed home since we had to wait for our bed to be delivered. Unfortunately, the only time they had available meant we had to miss church but we stayed positive.
I got started on meal prep and laundry early since we were stuck waiting and we had everything done by 3pm! Once our bed arrived, we had Panera delivered and relaxed for a bit. We finally got off our butts and cleaned up a bit before we took our first nap on our bed. We both fell asleep within seconds and I could hardly wake Jordan up. It’s safe to say we got the right bed!
Overall, it was a lovely weekend and we did everything we needed to do! I’m excited for the week ahead since I’ll be seeing friends I haven’t seen in a while.
How was your weekend? Have you seen Fury? If so, what did you think of it?
