We walked next door to Korea House for dinner, then we came back home & watched Larry Crowne. Meh...
I got up Saturday morning & did a much needed 75 minutes class as Epic Yoga. I ran around, did some errands, & got a bang trim. That night, we met our friends Jeff & Ashlee for dinner at Tequila's. Jeff & John talked about who knows what, while Ashlee & I talked about our new jobs & long distance running. After dinner, John & I ran to Green Hills Mall because my friend Sarah works at Aveda & had hooked me up with a huge bottle of Shampure. Score! Thanks, Sarah!
If you follow me on the Facebook, then you're probably over hearing about my 9-mile run yesterday, but SURPRISE, I'm still talking about it. So yeah, Jaime & I ran 9 miles yesterday (Cara was sick). It was the hardest run so far. Jaime & I both had trouble. I honestly don't think it was the distance because our bodies/legs felt fine; it was more mental. I completely ran out of steam at the last 2 miles & had to will myself to finish. My stomach clenched up & I thought I was going to be sick, but it passed. Who knows. I have two thoughts: 1) the course was flat & I think I need more elevation/variety in these long runs; & 2) I need to re-fuel while I'm running. Everyone has things that works for them, e.g. gu, roctane, hard candy, stinger waffles, etc. I just need to figure out what works for me.
After the run, Jaime & I grabbed breakfast at Mitchell Deli. That afternoon, John & I met my parents for a belated birthday lunch (both my mom & John have January birthdays). Apparently after these long runs, I'm supposed to keep moving & not do what feels natural: lay on the couch all day. So in an effort to 'keep moving', I hobbled around the house, cleaning & doing laundry, & then I hobbled around Publix. I do think it helps, it's just hard to do because my brain is SCREAMING, "Just sit down!"
I'm kind of obsessed with Anthony Bourdain's new show, The Layover & had watched the one where he's in London yesterday morning, so, naturally, I wanted shepard's pie for dinner. And I totally made it. It was so good! But it put me into a coma & I feel asleep at like 8:30pm...
