Well, the twofor special of Breaking Dawn went well.
I went to Yoga and ran calming as much as possible. I knew it would be a long night!
We got to the movie theatre at 9pm and was told we would have to wait outside or buy 5.00 tickets to see Eclipse and then have our seats for Breaking Dawn. Best 15.00 ever spent! I had to stomach the horrible acting in Eclipse once more but it was worth it to stay warm! Theater was genius for doing this!
The movie itself was not bad at all. I even dare say I enjoyed it.
However, after the second time in 24 hours, I can say honestly I am ok without seeing any vampires or werewolves until 2012!
Saturday night, my sister had planned a surprise for Kellie and her 2 closest friends. She rented an art studio and they had a BLAST!
While they were painting we met some girlfriends for MY birthday dinner and enjoyed some Ducks vs USC. It was a great game and great time had by all. How can you go wrong with Candy Cane Martini’s and my favorite banana cake with PINK frosting of course.
|That would be candy canes on the rim!|
|Do you think we really ate it all? We took tons home. SO YUMMY THO!|
Sunday was a pretty lazy day and it felt nice. I woke up with some right shin pain. I wasn’t sure if it was from Yoga on Saturday (although I remembered no poses that could have hurt it) or because I ran my recovery run on the street rather than the soft trail. I was nervous and not sure I should run my long. It was only set for 3.5 but I surely dont want to make anything worse. We decided I was ok to “try” but if I had any further pain I was to stop immediately. I thought it was a good idea to do a Galloway Run/Walk ratio and chose 3:1. I started and felt NO pain at all. I completed the 3.5 and actually was faster than my long pace run if I was to run it all. I was extremely happy. I didnt have any tendon pain either and am wondering if maybe I need to stick with the run/walk to get me through Disney.
I am looking forward to a 2 day work week and spending some majorly needed QT time with my family.
Do you ever feel selfish or guilty when you spend to much time on yourself?
I have been struggling with this as of late and wonder if I need to search for a bit more balance.
I am becoming a fan and if it can help my injuries and help me stay healthy, I am really thinking about this. I remember at my half in Eugene, the run/walkers started way behind me, but finished WAY ahead of me. Decisions Decisions! I have all his books and have researched it, but I wont lie .. I always feel like I am less of a runner if I walk at all.
