Weekend Recap - Is it Spring?

It's Tuesday, and I meant to post this yesterday. But Monday was a Monday all the way around down to having to walk back to work from home because my car battery died (again). At least it was sunny and warm and I didn't have to trudge the 9 blocks in "the boot." Upside right?

Since I was officially out of the boot, I took full advantage of the spring-like temperatures we had over the weekend. Saturday started off with a girls only lunch with my sister, mom and niece. It was to celebrate our mom's birthday in January.

We of course did a little bit of shopping after eating, and then when they left town, I decided to go for a much-needed walk. It was only 2 miles, and not anything close to running, but it did my mind and body good.


Saturday night, Jason and I decided to have fun in the kitchen and made some veggie pot stickers and crispy tofu. Of course we dug in using chopsticks. That's a must right? Other than the giant mess we made in the kitchen, it was a low-key evening. We sat on the couch, watched a movie and munched on some popcorn. No complaints.



Sunday morning I got up and headed to my work gym. They have an arc trainer that I wanted to test out. I'm quite sick of sitting on the bike trainer at this point and the podiatrist did suggest I might give the elliptical a shot. I thought the arc trainer would actually be better, and it was, other than the boringness factor.

Around noon, Amy met up with me for a walk. We ended up right at 4.5 miles (farther than I had expected). It was nice traversing my usual running routes I must say. I've missed all the sights around my 'hood lately. I will say, my shins ended up being crazy sore from the walking. I was very surprised, and not in a great way. Guess I need to work on re-strengthening everything below my knees.

How was your weekend? Anyone else getting to enjoy unusually warmer temps?
