Good morning, friends. I had a really fun & busy weekend which actually made it feel long! I feel like the more I pack into a weekend, the longer it feels. Anyone else find that to be true? I evidently found time to do a lot of online shopping this weekend in between running around. My Monday started with an inbox full of emails with the subject “Your package has shipped!” Please pray for flattering fits and/or free returns.

How was your weekend?

Here’s what I got into last week:

Hi friends! How is your week going? You look so nice today!

I spent so much of last week feeling so sore. I went to Barry’s 2x and the Fhitting Room once but I think it was the physical therapy session at Finish Line that really did me in. I guess I haven’t done a squat in years.

You guys know I’m a fan of the nutrition blog Summer Tomato. I stumbled upon this older post on breaking your good habits called, “The I Just Don’t Feel Like It” Fallacy. In it, Darya talks about thinking through the real reason you’re breaking a habit that’s helped you meet a goal in the past. She just gets me.

One of my favorite running bloggers, the Great Britain-based Charlotte, ran the Boston Marathon last weekend. Her recap is sure to make you smile, so I wanted to share it.

In less impressive athletic endeavors, here’s last week’s workout rundown:

Good morning. Excuse me as I hit you up with some random goodies. 

Last week the New York Road Runners announced the results of the NYC Marathon lottery. Did any one get in? I’m running NYC (and it’s my first ever marathon) this year and would love to know if any readers/friends will be training too. Let me know in the comments! I received guaranteed entry through the NYRR 9+1 program. If you didn’t get in, but want to run, there are two ways to still score a bib. Learn more here.

Anyone else love the Lego movies? Check out this awesome bike helmet that gives you Lego hair.  (I think Matt needs it.)

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and this year was no slouch.

I never got around to posting last week’s recap, so now I’m doubling up (which is also the theme of some of my workouts) and sharing the last two weeks’ recap in one post.
