My weekend was full of good food, running, and trying to relax before another long week at work!
Unfortunately, I was still feeling a bit under the weather Saturday morning so I wasn’t able to make it to NYC Summer Streets again. Plus, it was raining and I didn’t want to risk this cold getting any worse.
By the afternoon though the sun came out and I was feeling good enough to lace up my super pink running shoes for a 3.5 mile run around Brooklyn. This was my first run in about a week, I wasn’t able to for so long because I was feeling so sick. The first run back is always the best I think and I really was happy to be out there, even though my nose is still a bit stuffy. Oh well, I can live with that.
Here’s some of the sights from my run..
I always love running by the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, it never gets old. The only problem is that its super crowded on weekends, plus theres tons of people taking wedding photos, so I end up running around people the whole time! But this view isn’t too shabby.
After my first run back from being sick (yay!), I went out for dinner with Karl and some of our friends at a restaurant in Brooklyn called Alma. Its has an amazing view of the city since its down by the waterfront. And my dish was really good.. grilled shrimp with corn tortillas. Plus a sangria or two to wash it down
Sunday morning I met up with Katherine for a run along the East River. She has been really sick too for the past week so we decided to run as much as we felt comfortable with/able to. I’m so glad we met up because it really helped with my motivation having a partner!
We ran about 4 miles together and I finished up another 3 by myself for a total of 7 miles. This was the distance I had in my training plan for this week, so I’m not behind even though I missed some of my short runs. In general my body felt really good today despite not being able to breathe as well as usual because of my stuffy nose. It was super nice out too, sunny and cool for the summer with a light breeze. So nice!
Here’s some of what I saw on my run:
For the rest of the day Sunday Karl and I went to Park Slope to walk around and enjoy the neighborhood, as well as get some Bare Burger for lunch. Amazing as usual! Then we explored Prospect Park a bit and hung out there. There was a food truck rally at the park today too, and I would have totally been all over that except I was stuffed from lunch. But it looked like fun, Brooklyn always has such cool events.
Afterwards we headed home for movie time. Now its time to prepare for another work week.
