Yesterday was my “rest day”. I use ” ” because I discovered that moving out of an apartment is most definitely not a rest day. So no, I did not run. But boy did a I lift/pull/carry/drag/shove/stuff boxes, couches, tables, night-stands, desk, book cases, kitchen-gadgets, futon, t.v, coffee table, etc, into an increasingly small Uhaul truck. WOW. I was a sweaty, banged up mess! I have scrapes and bruises all up and and down my legs as sacrificial wounds as I used every body party to control an over-sized couch from tumbling down a flight of stairs and killing my dad or uncle.
Running did not happen (hence the rest day) but boy am I feeling the effects of yesterday’s move this morning! My hamstrings are on FIRE!! Time to Roll baby Roll!! ((I am getting squeamish just imagining how badly the foam roller is going to hurt my hammy’s…usually a sure sign of needing to do it though))
I came home from loading up the UHaul and handing over my keys to the apartment complex and proceeded to sleep for 2 hours straight!
A Great Book…
With my dad as the most wonderful dad ever for driving down and back to help with the packing process, I was able to relax in the car read what is quickly becoming my favorite book!!
Getting it from Half Price Books for 6.50$ made it even better 🙂 This man is CRAZY!!! I was hooked from the first chapter when he orders a large Hawaiian pizza and an entire cheese cake while out on a 100+ mile run and asks the delivery guy to “look for the guy running down the road…” Love it. He makes such a point of how essential food is. It is so great for me to read about a guy who’s thought process is “Food is fuel. If I want to run far, I need fuel.” Plain and Simple, baby. It is such a quick read and I highly recommend it to someone wanting a book they can easily read in little intervals of 5 minutes hear, 5 there ((i.e for the busy person who finds a few minutes throughout the day to open a page).
…and How to Watch a Movie
Last night I saw “We Are the Millers”— loved it! Very funny! Not as funny as “The Heat” (which killed me with laughter, by the way) but still a great fast moving comedy with some fun characters! The best part of the movie, however, was the theater in which I watched it. They are redoing their entire cinema…everything from the bathrooms, sound system, screen quality, seats, lighting,etc is being revamped. They are making it a Cinema Bar and Grill type where you can order a great dinner and drinks while you watch.
While the food service is not up and running yet, they do have the seats/screens/sounds ready to go. The verdict??— It was the best movie experience I have ever had. The seats were huge and leather and nicer than my lazy boy at home. No joke. The surround sound made me feel like I was in the movie, and the screen quality was so top-notch that I felt like I was hanging out in the theater with the real Jennifer Aniston (one day!)
I hope to get in a medium slow run today (8 miles?) and just relax and roll out my legs!
Have a great Wednesday everyone! Go forth and be Awesome!
Favorite Running book? — I want to read more… PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO READ!!
