Alex gave blood today, so we actually started our day with a date! I met him at the casino (that’s where the blood drive was!) for lunch at Chickie’s and Pete’s. I’ve been telling Alex since before we moved here that he had to try their fries, and he finally did! It was very satisfying. Of course he found them amazing.
Despite this indulgence, I took a “rest” day today. Running in the rain one day is fun and silly. Doing it twice in a row means you have nothing to wear that isn’t gross from over-flooded creek water. But I still did all of the Pilates mat exercises I learned while studying for my certification today, so it wasn’t really a tooootal rest day.
I have two running dates later this week! Alex and I are running 4.5 miles Wednesday morning so that we can go eat twice as many calories at the diner near the trailhead directly afterwards. And Thursday afternoon I’m meeting Molly, who directed me in college, for a 3 miler with our puppies! This is good because I will want to be tired out for my surgery the next day. I’m going to do everything in my power to sleep all day Friday!
I’m off to make homemade sweet potato fries before my poker tournament! (Poker is a decent part of our social life at Tecumseh!, so I need to brush up!)
Do you accidentally exercise on your rest days?
Do you run alone or with friends?
Would you totally beat me in heads up Hold ‘Em?
