Valentine’s Day Weekend!

Happy Valentine’s Day weekend! It ended up being a pretty good weekend over here! Jon and I went to Brio for our Valentine’s Day dinner on Friday night.

The food really wasn’t anything that special but Jon and I had a good time anyway.

We were planning on riding the ferris wheel in Atlanta but the line was so long and it also started to rain as soon as we drove up to it! So we came home instead and I crashed early!

We woke up Saturday morning with big plans to go hiking, but then I started cleaning and got ready really slowly and I wanted to go buy my wedding band… So no hiking happened at all! I did, however, buy my wedding band (for like $300 more than I was expecting! shocker) as well as three new shirts from the outlet mall. Definitely not what I need while saving for a wedding.

After that, Jon and I decided to head up to join my parents at the cabin for the rest of the afternoon.

We saw some snow capped “mountains” on the way! We actually had thought about going up that mountain, which is Brasstown Bald but I figured it’d be closed because of the snow. We hung out with my parents for a bit and then Jon and I decided to head out and go for a drive and hang out for a bit in town.

We stopped along our drive to get a picture of one of our favorite views! Apparently I deleted most of the pictures already off my phone though! Oh well! Once we finished that, we stopped to pick up some barbecue to take back to the a cabin for  dinner with my mom and dad. We ended our night with a game of Scrabble (that I won!) and then Jon and I stopped to pick up my resized wedding band and headed home!

This morning I was going to wake up early and go to yoga but I could not fall asleep for the life of me last night! And Tom woke me up all night and so did Jon snoring! So I got up, studied for my test and then took my test (it’s online), and then headed out for a run! It was pretty warm out and although I actually wanted to go to speed work at LA Fitness, I decided I better take advantage of the weather when possible!

I ran 4 miles and felt like dying! I also went a different route than usual and one road was really hilly and then my third mile was almost entirely up hill. One road is 95% up hill and I hated every minute of it. I didn’t notice any knee pain at all though, but my left ankle was feeling it, as always. At least that pain immediately goes away when I stop running. I finished in 37:13 and all my miles were between 9:06 and 9:29, so really not very good. I’ll take it though since I haven’t been running in so long!

I got home and had planned on going to the gym for a leg day but it was just way too nice out! Jon said he’d go to Stone Mountain so we headed over there. It was really packed, so we decided to walk some trails instead of walking up the mountain.

We grocery shopped after that and now we’re home! I’ve been putting off a lot of biology since we’ve been out of class so much lately. It’s so hard to stay on track with so many snow days! The test I finished today was supposed to be taken 3 weeks ago but has been delayed! So tonight I’ll be studying and heading to bed early. Doesn’t feel like tomorrow is Monday! Waaah!

Have a good night!

  1. The yoga instructor I had back in college always talked about how he used to run all the time and how yoga really helped him get through the aches and pains from it. Hopefully it can do the same for you!

    Yeah, it’s really hard to get back into the swing of things with school after you’ve had so many days off. May is getting close though! Then you won’t have to worry about it anymore.

  2. Yoga pretty much rocks for running. It’s not easy but it does help with your hips, alignment, etc. I have less back pain when I do yoga too. Sometimes the short stuff will help like the videos, etc, if you can’t always get to a class to do yoga. Glad you got your wedding band!
