Rainy Day Sunday

What do you do on a day like this?

there should be more buildings in this picture

Eat some of these...

and then meet up with great girlfriends...

not a picture from Sunday

for a chick-flick movie marathon!

Bridesmaids was totally hilarious, while as inappropriate as you'd expect from a Judd Apatow film. But, that's what they were going for! Something Borrowed, was cute and definitely a chick flick. It was a great afternoon and I can't wait till we can do it again.

Saturday morning, I ran a mile. It was a slow mile, and on the treadmill, but it was the first mile I've run in over a month. I went into it with clear limits. I would stop the second it started to hurt, but if it didn't hurt, I would stop at a mile and not an inch further. It didn't hurt, my form felt really good, so I stopped when the distance read 1.00. I did a bunch of stretching before hand, warmed up with a quarter mile walk at a quick pace and then followed it with another quarter mile, stretching and 10 minutes on the elliptical to finish my cardio. Nearly 24 hours later and I haven't felt any pain! I'm definitely taking this slow but I have races I want to run. If it means I only run two or three times a week, then that's what it's going to take. I don't need to break speed records, I just want to be a part of it all again. And have fun.

Hooray for no pain!!

I can't wait to see those movies... I've heard nothing but good things about both of them!

YAY a run! Glad you were pain free! And I am going to see Something borrowed this coming weekend and I can't wait!

I made a comment to my husband about how stupid that movie looked but you are the third blog I've read this morning that said it was great! Now I'm really curious. I saw Something Borrowed on the weekend and it was cute.

Kelly said...

WOW! I just read your about page! You are amazing!!! Thank you for the kind and supportive comment you left me on my blog this morning. That means a lot!!

Molly said...

Something Borrowed is a great book, I'm so curious to see how it plays out on the screen. Plus I love John Krazinski : )

So happy your run was pain free!

Jenn said...

OOh! I really want to see Bridesmaids! I read the book "Something Borrowed" so I probably won't like the movie.

So happy for the pain free mile! Smart of you to listen and take it easy here.

Beautiful sunshine here FINALLY!!!!

Congrats on the run! I too loved Bridemaids, but could have done without the bathroom scene.
