How was your weekend? I spent mine working and playing.
Saturday morning I ran a whole 5 miles–that’s a big accomplishment for me these days. And I ran the last two miles without stopping. Go me!
After running, I got ready for work and had an English muffin and Green Balance Juice on my way.
After being on my feet for 8 hours, it was time for a break. Craig and I decided to have a date night at Rustic Goat. This is a relatively new restaurant in town, and as soon as I learned about it, I was excited to try it out. Craig had been there before, but I had not.
It was definitely a good experience. We sat in the balcony area and had a gorgeous view with all the windows. Plus, we saw a rainbow that made its appearance for a few minutes.
I started with the Blue Cheese Salad, which I would highly recommend. The romaine lettuce was grilled, which gave the salad a whole new flavor.
Craig and I shared the Fiddlehead Fern Pizza and a side of fries. Everything was really good but the pizza was a little heavy on the oil.
Sunday morning was church, followed by some work at home for me, while Craig watched football. Later that afternoon we headed to Kincaid Park for a walk/easy hike with Sadie. While we were driving there, we saw several cars pulled off to the side of the road. Usually this means a moose is in the area and people are taking its picture. We drove around the cars because frankly another moose doesn’t really excite us anymore. But with a second look, we saw this little guy hanging out playing with the reflector and an orange traffic cone. Eek!
I’ve heard of people spotting black bears on the east side of Anchorage, which is closer to the mountains, but rarely do we hear about bears on the west part of the city. This definitely was not something I particularly wanted to see as I have often run on the paved path that runs right past where this bear was. Cool but not so cool.
We walked around the trail so Kincaid Park for an hour with Sadie while she chased after birds and squirrels. She was in heaven.
Now I’m finishing up this post before going to bed. I’ve got a lengthy to-do list for tomorrow, so let’s hope I get everything accomplished!
Here’s a quick recap on my workouts this past week during my 33rd week of my pregnancy.
Pregnancy Workouts – 33 Weeks (September 1 – 7)
2 hour (flat) hike with Craig and Sadie
Ran in the afternoon and felt okay. My hip flexors still bother me.
2 miles/20:00 + 20 minute walk with Sadie
Ran the whole way! I also had an appointment at the chiropractor for ART (Active Release Technique).
30 minute walk with Sadie + 30 minute walk to work + 25 minutes weight lifting
Felt good at the beginning but things quickly got tougher after 1.5 miles.
Glad to have run 5 miles!
60 minute hike/walk with Craig and Sadie
Total: 13 miles
Have you ever seen a bear?
