A Lazy Weekend

I'm having a lazy weekend, and I think it's okay.  I've worked for two weeks straight before this weekend, and worked out almost every day (I think I took one day off of the gym in that two-week period).  I had a run planned for Saturday, but issues with my son and car trouble left me unable to complete it, and today it is cold and wet (we even had snow for about an hour!) and I am completely pooped, so I'm giving myself the weekend off.

Tomorrow I'll exercise in the morning and I'm seriously thinking (because I am certifiably nuts!) of starting P90X alternating with short, fast runs in the evenings. A rest weekend before I start that insanity is probably a good idea.  And even if it isn't, I'm taking it.  So there! :)

How is your weekend going?


  1. I kind of love lazy weekends especially after such busy weeks! I know you deserve the break!
    Gotta tell ya that I missed you tons yesterday for our run. Sorry about the car issues and definitely hope things were resolved pretty easily.
    Let me know how p90x goes! And hey, would you be up for 11 on Saturday??? Thinking about tackling part of the half marathon course....

  2. Kim, it was an easy fix - in fact, if I'd known how it was going to turn out I'd just have ridden over with Melissa, but hindsight is 20-20! Yeah, I think I could do 11 on Saturday - maybe we can get Kate and Melissa to some with us for part of it!

  3. Great! It was a good, short run yesterday. I was actually telling Justin it's funny how now I consider 5 miles on a Sat a short run when the last 3 weekends my long run has been 10 miles..haha Looking forward to 11 on Sat. Hope you have a great week!

  4. This weekend I tried to make up for lost workouts during the week. But I have this lingering flu that still makes my life miserable. Let's hope I have a better week. I hope you have a good week!

  5. my weekend = lazy. for me at least. i did sleep A LOT which was glorious. p90x?! you are crazy ;)

  6. how awesome to start the p90x...keep us updated on how it goes. hope you enjoyed your lazy weekend

  7. I was thinking about doing P90X yoga today but it technically IS supposed to be my rest day, and ...
    I'm technically pooped out.
    sorry Tony Horton, you're not getting out my goo today :D

  8. Good for you! You deserve a lazy weekend now and then! Let us know how P90X goes. I am doing the Candice version of it, which is basically throwing in a workout here and there when I have time.
