Happy Monday, hope everyone had a good weekend enjoying the weather and celebrating Mother’s Day. Luckily my parents are local, so I never travel too far to see them. Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.
Monday 5/4– 2 mile walk
Tuesday 5/5 – 2 mile walk
Wednesday 5/6 – 2 mile walk + 60 minutes yoga + 60 minutes personal training
Thursday 5/7 – 1 mile walk
Friday 5/8 – 2 mile walk
Saturday 5/9 – 5 miles + 3 miles (intervals, strength)
Sunday 5/10 – Mother’s Day 4 Miler
Total: 21 miles
In typical Monday fashion, I had to cancel my planned runs/workouts, but luckily the week ended better than it started and I finished with 21 miles and over 100,000 steps. On Wednesday I went to CorePower Yoga with Rachel – it was sweaty and fabulous! My left calf had been bothering me (very tight) the past couple of days and it definitely helped loosen it up.
On Wednesday I met some of the Oiselle girls at Pacifico Cantina to celebrate Julie’s birthday! It is always fun catching up with everyone.

Unfortunately I missed the run portion of the evening, but I was able to enjoy a yummy watermelon margarita (a first) and tacos (the baja taco was gooodd).
The fitness highlight of the week came on Saturday. I met Rachel on the Mount Vernon Trail for a 5 miler. It was nice to change up our route and I may be using this trail more often for marathon training (although I may start out in Dangerfield for the longer runs because there is more shade further south of the trail). I did not have my Garmin on, but I think we had a faster second half.
Following the 5 miler (and a carton of watermelon) I met my trainer for a run session for another 3 miles where we did some sprint and strength work. I was exhausted, but I knew I would have plenty of R&R that afternoon. Rachel and I (since you know… we haven’t seen each other in forever…joke joke) made an appointment to use our Gilt City deal at Varnish Lane.
For those of you in the DC/MD/VA area, Varnish Lane is a nail salon in Friendship Heights that provides waterless manicures and pedicures (they soften the skin with lotions and towels).
It was beautiful inside, relaxing, and the customer service was excellent. I will definitely make another appointment here in the future.
Of course, another social/fitness highlight of the week was celebrating Mother’s Day with the family. On Sunday, I met my mom in Reston, Virginia for the Mother’s Day 4 Miler where we battled the two H’s – hills and humidity (recap to come this week + my Bethesda 8K recap). Later that evening I also had dinner with my parents and brother – it was a fun night. On a random note – yay to Cliff for finishing his first year of grad school!
How was your weekend?
Have you ever gotten a waterless manicure/pedicure? Fish pedicure?
