Happy Sunday! I just got back from seeing The Heat and doing groceries with C. OMG that movie was HILARIOUS!! I'm glad that we picked that movie to go and see, I needed a good laugh. I had tears in my eyes at times! Melissa McCarthy is just absolutely hilarious, her humour and straight face delivery just makes me crack up... even during the commercials for the movie lol!
This morning I went for a run and I did not check the weather before I went. It looked beautiful inside as I was looking outside from inside from air conditioned condo. I put on my running shorts, threw on a race t-shirt, tied up my hair and got outside before I could change my mind (and continue watching Gossip Girl... obviously). Well I got outside, turned on my GPS watch.. and "Low Battery" flashed across the screen. Perfect. So back up to the condo I went and traded in my GPS watch for my phone (which is not ideal because I hate holding my phone when running, my hand gets sweaty), and went back downstairs again and then hit the pavement for real this time lol.
Well, 500 meters into my run and I was sweating. I knew it was hot out, but all I could think of really was "Awesome, this is going to be so intense and I love it" and "Damn it, this stupid race t-shirt... I should have worn a tank top.". When I run, I usually run along the trails along the lake shore here in Toronto, but occasionally I like to run in the core of downtown because I like to see people and see things. Today I ran downtown mostly to avoid all of the people at the Toronto Indy Race that was happening all weekend. I navigate between the closest main street I live near, and the second (Bathurst and Spadina) closest and make my way gradually north. That means I run down some major streets here in Toronto. It's fun! There's always something to see! Today? Not much other than many people walking out and about while I dodged between them.
I cut my run a bit short (I was aiming for 7km but ended up doing 6km) because I was so tired and hot. I made it through 6km in about 40 minutes but I had countless walk breaks during the run because it was so hot that it was kind of hard to breathe. When I got to my building, I wanted to walk around just to get my heart rate down, so I walked around my lobby area inside because it was way too hot outside and I needed to cool down! On the way up to the condo I snapped a photo so you could see how sweaty I was!
Can you see how sweaty I was? When I got off the elevator on our floor, looked around to make sure no one was there and literally had to take off my shirt I was SO HOT. This picture was like 15 minutes and 4 glasses of water later and I'm STILL dripping sweat...
Yep. That's me in my sports bra. TAKE IT ALL IN! Haha.. I'm just kidding. But seriously... still sweating. I had a shower and got out and was still sweating. It was the weirdest thing. But it felt good! I actually looked up the weather when I got home and it turns out that it felt like 35 degrees Celsius outside. Probably silly of me to run but I didn't know when I started how hot it was going to be lol. Whoopsies...
I will admit I didn't get to workout on Saturday like I had hoped I would. On Friday night I was out
|My friend Kim & I at Brassaii on Friday night! Vodka... so. much. vodka.|
I have never gone out for dinner by myself, so when I went into the restaurant I felt really weird asking for a table for 1 lol. He let me sit at the bar, so since I already knew what I was having (it's my fav restaurant... of course I already know what I'm ordering) I busted out my phone and crept Instagram and Twitter, like anyone dining alone would do. I ordered a drink (I felt a little peer pressure from the bartender who was judging me for not ordering a drink on a Saturday night lol!) and got a Rock Lobster Cesar... basically it's a normal Cesar but it comes with half of a lobster tail. Basically the best thing ever. Anyways, I ordered their famous Lobster Roll and omg devoured it like it was nobody's business. I think I've talked about how good they are before, and they just never fail me. I need to work there so I can eat them more often.
|This is the Lobster Roll. Comes with chips and a pickle!!|
Q: Do you ever go out to dinner by yourself?
Q: What did you do for your workout(s) this weekend?
