 Tuesday. ugh

This weekend was wonderful & exhausting. Back-to-back visitors wasn’t the best plan I’ve ever had but I loved seeing them all.

Friday night, Katie & Lisa arrived approx. 10 minutes before my parents. We all had pizza, wine & fun catching up.

Saturday morning – the girls & I woke up to SNOW. 

 20120124-121202.jpgwe trekked over to Faneuil Hall for lunch & shopping.

20120124-121210.jpgNed Devine’s was empty given the weather but excellent.  Panini, sweet potato fries, and a glass of sauv blanc. yes please.

We even picked out Lisa’s outfit for her engagement photos. Though I failed to document that, there will be plenty of pics of it at some point 🙂

Saturday night, we had a drink at my apt with JT, had him snap this pic of us & all headed to dinner.  

Dinner was at Panza, which is my favorite place in the North End. Even with a reservation, the wait was 45 minutes. Obnoxious but the food is worth it. I always forget how frustrating that is, especially since I have little patience.  Oops.

Still, I had a fabulous weekend with the girls. So much fun. Might take me til next weekend to recover though.

 

how was your weekend?

anyone want to come do the mountain of laundry I have waiting for me? 😉

so so happy its Friday.

a few awesome things about today:

1. JT fixed/insulated/got magical with the heating system in my apt.

20120120-152014.jpgthis is the ghetto, half-ass heater that hates me and refuses to get my apt to an acceptable temperature.

(I’ve had it “fixed” twice and replaced once already, yet I still need a space heater and sleep in my compression socks)

20120120-152022.jpgand this is my fabulous boyfriend, who showed up with all sorts of insulating/foamfilling/cold air stopping stuff, took things apart, sprayed/filled/who knows what else.

and now it is warm.

(warm=happy alli)

.

2. I am sore, in the best way possible

yesterday kicked my ass and I feel great about it.

.

3. embracing the rest day

I came to work today with a bag of gym clothes & every intention to do a few easy miles at lunchtime. I’m tired. No, thanks.  

.

4.  pizza & parents

my parents are coming in tonight to hang out with my friends and they’re bringing pizza. Town Spa Pizza to get specific. SO GOOD. can’t wait.

.

5. THESE GIRLS will be here in just a few hours.

(since there isn’t a decent pic of all three of us on the internet?!) 

this might be from 2008, but I love it

July 2011

I’m excited. Can’t sit still. Need the work day to be over. Wine please.

 .

i’ll take it

17 degrees and 5mph wind. I’ll take it!

(soooo much better than yesterday)

this morning I put on:
running tights
 run swiftly long sleeve shirt
philly half long sleeve
blue lulu jacket
vest
compression socks
regular socks
hat
gloves

oh I bundled for sure and then.. I busted out 9 miles before work.

average pace around 9:56. I’ll take that too.

20120119-150048.jpgthe charles is starting to freeze!

you know what my favorite part of winter running is?

 20120119-150057.jpgmy water stays cold.

It may be 17 degrees outside, but I’m hot & sweating.  Cold water – soo good.

I might’ve also gone to the 12:00 power yoga class at the gym too.  It can only help, right?!  Afterwards, I realized that I did about 2.5 hours worth of workouts before 1:00 today.  ha. 

 tomorrow might need to be a easy day 🙂

.

that’s all I got.  I’m having a really hard time focusing on anything right now.
is it time to go home yet?  hurrah thurs nights.
is it tomorrow yet? yayyy katie and lisa.

.

 love thurs nights?  have fun weekend plans?  cant sit still for no reason at all?

I tried

I tried.

I laid all my running gear.

filled my water bottle.

set my alarm(s).

and was UP at 5.

and then I heard the wind…

LOUD wind. quick check to weather.com & realized it was blowing 25 mph.

oh hell no.

back to bed I go.

9 miles tomorrow (when its supposed to be significantly more reasonable)

I'll see youuu tomorrow

in other news, that can’t really be called news..

yesterday was my 1 year anniversary at work. They got me a card & a certificate & everything…

Can’t believe its been a year already..  Feels like I just got here & like NY was sooo long ago all at the same time.

.  

tonight, I’m hitting the elliptical and then getting both wine & groceries delivered so I’m ready for two of my best this weekend 🙂

excited!

happy friday

Happy Friday my friends!!

I’m pumped that its almost the weekend and you know what else?!

I RAN!!

20111202-162720.jpgthis is my attempt at a mid-run photo. ha

so excited. must take photo and text mom

(while running.. pretty much asking for injury #2)

20111202-162727.jpg3 whole miles!! super slow but painless

I didn’t want to get too crazy or overdo it. I started with a walk, got a little faster, and held it at 5.5 until I hit 3 miles. It was slow and comfortable and WONDERFUL.

I may or may not have subsequently spent a lot of time researching races.

5K in a few weeks? yes please.

I should probably run a lil faster (without pain) before I commit to that.

but YAYYYY!!!

.

plus. Katie & Lisa booked flights to visit in January. 

CAN NOT WAIT!

happy friday indeed 🙂

what’s on tap for the weekend?

I found Lisa bright & early this morningobviously lots of expo photos were necessaryExpo was actually disappointing. There wasn’t anything there I was interested in and no samples. lame. Love Park is getting ready for Christmas. 🙂about noon – we stopped at Tria for lunch. This place was super cute & the food was excellent. I meant to take a pic but nope. oops.

Love the hotel room keys!
She’s got everything all set up & ready to go for the morning.
sad.

love that they added our namesI have such skills. Artsy right here.

I’m going to be a damn good spectator.

We’re off to dinner soon. Lots of carbs in the near future.

(I can pretend carb-loading is still necessary right?)

Have a fabulous night friends.
