So the whole tattoo thing went really well. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I way hyping it in my head and I absolutely love the way it came out. I will post a picture after it’s all done healing, should be about two weeks, I think.
This weekend bestie and I ran/walked another unofficial 5k, but this time I had mapped out a course nearby instead of doing a loop. We did have to backtrack on one part, and it was a bit hillier than I expected. Our time was better and I think we ran more, although we didn’t run for the full 25 minutes called for on week 7 day 2 of C25K. We had run the full 25 minutes on the treadmill a few days prior without a problem. It blows my mind how different running outside feels all together, I just can’t get over it. It’s much nicer, but much tougher all at the same time.
That afternoon I drove about two hours to go see some friends who had just adopted a new Great Dane puppy. Two Great Danes, a toddler, and a baby in one house—PHEW! But K-dog had a great time wrestling with the puppy. They had a lot of fun together! Here she is in all her glory (she’s only 11 months old and still growing!):
This morning we lifted weights, because I’m trying a beginner’s Zumba class tonight and I wanted to have some energy left for it! But in general we’re going to back off the weights for a bit, just on this last stretch before the 5k, to make sure we get all the training in. Then we’ll get back to it, but I’m really thinking I need to change up my strength training routine. Any suggestions? I’ve looked for a kettlebell class, but I can’t seem to find one in my area.
Tomorrow night is dancing and I’ll get to show off my tattoo. Wanna know a good way to get over the whole “I can’t be seen in a tank top because my arms are too big” thing? Get a tattoo on your shoulder blade that you really want to show off.
Sorry this post wasn’t terribly informational. Back to regularly scheduled updates soon!
How was everyone’s weekend?
