Week One Recap and Girls Night Out

Week One Recap: This past week I completed my first week of marathon training. The first few weeks will consist of low mile weekday runs and conclude with a long Saturday run. The goal is to build endurance, so the amount of miles will increase as the weeks go by. Yikes!

During Saturday's run, I got a high five followed by "YOU GO GIRL!" from a total stranger as I was finishing. It's something so minor but it made me finish strong and feel good about myself.

  • Monday: 2 miles on elliptical and 2 mile run @ the gym.
  • Tuesday: 2 mile run with my bff @ the park.
  • Wednesday: 2 mile run with my bff @ the park.
  • Thursday: 2 mile run @ the gym. 
  • Friday: rest
  • Saturday: 4 mile run @ the park. 

For the second week, I will be up to 3 daily mile runs with a 5 mile Saturday long run.

Saturday night I joined my best friend, Jarrah and other friends for some drinks. We were there to celebrate a friend's birthday and the launch of her clothing store. But before I ordered any drinks, I actually googled the amount of calories per beer and told myself I would only have 2.....

Well that didn't happen! I think I had a bit too much to drink but it's all good. I had a great time kicking with friends I hadn't seen in forever but damn to beers! Here I am Sunday night still recovering...

Everywhere I go people ask me about my gauged ears. I took this picture because I don't think a lot of my 'online' friends know. I've had them for like 4 years, with the exception of 2 year ago when I closed them for a few months. No, it did not hurt and no, I have no plans on going bigger. The end.
