I did have a second post ready. Then the internet deleted it. So now we have a nice long post.
This morning I completed a nice 4.5 mile run and leg workout. I ran at just a 10 min. mile pace because as I always say, I run for distance not speed :). My leg workout:
3 sets of 20 squats touching a bench (squat back and touch bench with your rear)
3 sets of 10 single leg squats on a box (interwoven with squats)
3 sets of 12 shoulder bridges
3 sets of 12 hamstring curls on balance ball
calf raises as follows: toes in, toes out, toes forward; 1 set full raises, 1 set hold, 1 set pulse in each position
3 sets of 15 leg lifts
3 sets of 15 hamstring pushes
3 sets of 10 hip lifts
Tonight I will be making dinner with my dad and we will be having fresh tomato pasta sauce with whole wheat pasta, green beans with lime, and a spinach salad.
I have been living a “rock star” life the past few days. That’s a joke. But seriously, I went to see The Avett Brothers at the House of Blues and a band called Leslie that opened for them. Leslie has a southern rock sound and the Avett Brothers are best described as punk-bluegrass. Accept it and love it! Anyway, the show was amazing, but I was smart enough to take a nap earlier and make it through the night. My brother is friends with the Leslie band and their road-ie. My mom being the hospitable person that she is invited my brother, his two friends, and the band over to the house for lunch on Saturday. I contributed by helping boil the corn, slice veggies, and make vegan PB chocolate chip blondies. Turns out one of the band members and the road-ie are vegetarians. So I made them a big salad to help round out the rest of the side dishes from the BBQ. Everyone was really cool and awesome to hang out with, just because I have never really hung out with anyone in a band that actually tours and has a CD and merchandise. They ended up returning that night after their second show for more food and to spend the night on the couches.
