Happy Marathon Monday! I’ve been enjoying all the Boston Marathon related articles, posts and pictures from this weekend and looking forward to more today. Now I’m super excited for marathon training to begin (Jennifer remember to look back at this post when I start complaining about how tired I am come September). Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.
Monday 4/13 – Rest day
Tuesday 4/14 – Rest day
Wednesday 4/15 – Rest day
Thursday 4/16 – 2 miles + 60 minutes personal training
Friday 4/17 – 2 miles
Saturday 4/18 – 4 miles
Sunday 4/19 – 2 miles
Total: 10 miles
Last week was one of those weeks in which everything was scheduled (workouts, social, work…a bit overscheduled), but nothing went as scheduled. I had to cancel running plans with Rachel (twice) and one training session with Jess. I squeezed in some workouts where I could and was happy with the 10 miles (better than none). This week should be a better week in terms of running, cross training, yoga and catching up on blog comments.
On Wednesday evening I drove to historic Ellicott City where I met two of my colleagues (and former project managers) for dinner. We ate at a restaurant called Portallis and everything was amazing (I had the salmon with asparagus).
The following night I caught up with two of my classmates from b-school. We went to Agora in Dupont Circle where we shared meze (small plates). Below is a picture of dessert…I love baklava!
This past weekend Cliff and I headed to Richmond for a wedding. After some research we went to Perly’s Restaurant and Delicatessen for breakfast and it did not disappoint.
Corned beef hash with eggs.
Bagel sammy for me! The seven grain bagel was good.
The wedding was held at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens – it was a beautiful day to celebrate the bride and groom.
The tulips and daffodils were in bloom.
They were the perfect backdrop for the ceremony.
It was nice to spend the evening outdoors. I love that the days are getting longer.
Random, but not so random… I just purchased a Fitbit Flex (thanks to my REI dividend) and received it on Friday. I ordered the Fitbit in black, but also ordered a cover from Amazon in case I needed something dressier (the Tory Burch Fitbit line is beautiful, but I did not want to spend that much on it). I think it turned out nicely and wore it to the wedding.
How was your weekend?
Eat anything delicious?
