I think the weekend flies by because we pack so much stuff into two tiny days. With Friday being the first of the month I really wanted to get a run in. Weather was great, and with the sun staying up so much longer, Hubs and I came up with a plan. After dinner, we took the boys to the park, which has a track right next to it, and while they played I ran for two miles.
My pace was all off because the boys ran a lap of the second mile with me. Well, one son ran it. The other one ran half it, wanted me to pick him up, decided he was a Transformer and army crawled for fifty feet, then ran the rest of the way. Also, Map My Run wasn't accurately picking up the laps, so I had to run almost 4.5 laps to get a mile to show up on the app.
I always feel like I am going to have a good month if I can start out with a run. I also did day one of the Pop Sugar 21 Day Arms challenge. This is going to sound a lot like bragging, but what the hell it is my blog and if I need to toot my horn, I will toot it. I did the first day and it was easy. I have issues with a lot of my body, but between hauling around two three year olds, and regular arm workouts I think I've got a pretty strong upper body. We'll see if the challenge challenges me over the next week.
Another Friday treat, the boys got twin beds!

Saturday I saw Batman Vs. Superman. No spoilers here other than to say...don't go see it. If a two and a half hour movie FEELS like a two and a half hour movie it is just not worth it. The only good things about the movie were the fact my friend snuck in a thermos of wine for us to share, and Henry Cavill's abs (although not enough abs in my opinion).
I also got new shoes on Saturday. Check out these beauties!
Wow, that must have bothered me more than I thought. Lots of words there.
I took those lovely shoes for a run on Sunday. I have to tell you I have been experiencing some shin pain while running which is a big indicator for me that it's time for new shoes. With these ones on, it was like running on a cloud.
And then I went to bed and now it's Monday. Damn.
I am going on a vacation with my sister on Thursday, to New York City to see family. I have plans to run in Central Park on Friday, not only to celebrate Rex Manning Day but because I want to run in Central Park. We're going to see some shows, hang out a bunch, attempt to get lottery tickets for Hamilton on Thursday. Most importantly I would like to a. pee without someone banging on the door and asking me what I am doing and b. sleep in and wake up when I want to not because someone is yelling my name. Pretty reasonable, I think.
How was your weekend?
