Love/Don't Love

It's been awhile since I've done one of these posts, so here goes!

1. My office is moving this week so there are boxes and bins everywhere. While I'll miss eating lunch in front of the White House, I'm excited to move to our new office in Chinatown. There's just so much more to do there. Who knows, I might even switch it up and take my lunch breaks at the National Archives or the National Portrait Gallery! Love.

The National Archives
2. I didn't run four days per week like I told myself I would. I ran twice. Oops. Don't Love.
3. I did manage to run 8 miles on Sunday. I left my apartment at noon. It was hot. It was hard. Every part of me wanted to stop but I didn't and it didn't hurt. I kept a really steady pace for the first 6 miles, and then I just kind of melted, but I was so, so happy with my run. Love.
4. My favorite part about running in that kind of heat is diving into the pool right after my run...and then spending the rest of the day evening out my racer back tan lines. Love.
5. Because I ran in the dead of the heat, the rest of the day wasn't smooth sailing. The Pilot and I talked about heading out to the National Harbor to go outlet shopping but a 15 minute pit stop at Target had me begging for the couch. Don't Love.
6. We bought a Nintendo Wii this weekend. I'm not at all embarrassed embarrassed to say how much time I spent playing Super Mario Brothers this weekend. Love.

7. I haven't logged on to Daily Mile in ages. I'm just now realizing, how much I've relied on it in the past for figuring out weekly mileage and build up. So this week, I'm going to enter all of my runs for the last few weeks, and figure out a good starting point for fall race training. Love.

That's what's going on in my world this Monday!
Hope everyone had a fab weekend!


  1. Congrats on your run! I'm glad you're feeling better!

  2. I have the Wii as well and haven't played in ages. I think it is time to un-dust it for a game night with the husband. Good idea!!

  3. Love that you had such a good run and on a hot day. Go you! Love that you love DC so much. Thanks for the nice comment about my oh so didn't love tri!

  4. Glad you're feeling better! Hope the office move goes smoothly!

  5. That's one thing I'm looking forward to at my new place: a POOL to enjoy after my runs :) Yay for good runs!!
