Saturday:—7 mile marathon pace run
—1 hour vinyasa yoga class
After my morning workouts, Scott and I headed to Bloomington-Normal, IL, where we're getting married to try to get some things straightened out. First, we grabbed a quick lunch at Panera.
|Lunch: half caesar salad and half turkey sandwich|
|It might be impossible for me to resist anything labeled "red velvet."|
We got our photographer booked and we also reserved a place for our rehearsal dinner, all in the span of about six hours, so I was happy with how the trip went.
—14 mile long run
—20 minutes yoga at home
Scott and I started our day off with one more wedding things: we were signed up to attend a gift registry event for engaged couples at Crate and Barrel. I've been dreaming for years about getting to register at Crate and Barrel and it was fun getting to look at all of the gadgets and housewares, but it was also more stressful than I expected since we had to agree on which plates, flatware, etc. we liked best. We did get some free pastries, which was nice.
I managed to make some overnight oats for the first time following Lindsay's recipe with a few tweaks. Since I don't need to avoid milk and couldn't find vanilla Amande (I swear Whole Foods had every flavor but vanilla), I went with some organic vanilla yogurt, and I also added a splash of vanilla extract.
I got in my long run on the treadmill because by the time we were done with all of our errands it was really cold and rainy and gross outside. My legs were so tired from the marathon pace run the previous day, so the long run was definitely a test of mental endurance and learning how to run on tired legs, but I finished it.
—1 hour vinyasa yoga class
My legs were beat yesterday so I decided to take a break from running today and just do yoga. My whole body felt so much better after the class. I also got a sports massage which was great and I'm really hoping that it helped me work out some of the stubborn kinks in my calves and helped to stretch out my IT band.
I also went out and bought a new laptop! Mine decided to bite the dust over the weekend, which is why I didn't update my blog.
My old 6-year-old Toshiba had been randomly shutting down for maybe about a week now I had a lot of trouble getting it to boot yesterday. Today I got the crazy screen above when I tried to get it to start up.
Scott found me a good deal on a decent Samsung laptop that's really light weight and I think will work really well once we get things like the mouse touchpad sensitivity adjusted. The new computer is going to suck up a lot of my tax refund, but my old Toshiba just doesn't have any more time left in it. Thanks for your hard work, Toshie.
Did you work out today?

When was the last time you got a new computer?
