Weekend Recap + A Vacation Workout

I used my last two days of PTO for 2015 (February is the first month of our fiscal year at work) to see Adam in Naples.  Here’s a quick recap, as well as a workout that can keep you from feeling sluggish and stiff while on vacation.

Thursday night, we picked up Jet’s pizza on the way home from the airport and watched a couple episodes of Criminal Minds.  I’ve almost completed all ten seasons on Netflix and anticipate feeling utterly lost when I reach the end.  It’s been quite the journey.  Have you guys watched Making a Murderer?  I might start that next.

On Friday, Adam had to go into the office for a little while.  I’ve been guilty of wrapping myself in a blanket and sitting in one spot for the entire evening after work instead of going to the gym for the last couple weeks because of the cold weather in Columbus, so I decided to get some fresh air.

I jogged for about twenty minutes at a brisk pace for some cardio.  Back at Adam’s apartment complex, I did modified one-twenty’s on the tennis court because I believe running until you can’t breathe is good for the soul.  A one-twenty is sprint from one end of a court or field to the other followed by a super-slow recovery jog back to start.  We had a minute and twenty seconds to complete each rep when we did them on a soccer field in high school, but I cut the distance by ninety percent and didn’t use a timer.  Can’t win ’em all.  I completed three sets of three with about a minute and a half of rest in between, then did a few minutes of strength work to finish up.  I like to target my core while traveling because sitting in cramped airplanes can throw mine out of whack.  Exercises below!

Vacation Workout

On Friday night, we drank fancy coffee and stayed up until 2 a.m. tapping at our laptops.  Adam worked on an investment idea while I wrote Saturday’s blog post.


And that is why I don’t post many weekend recaps

On Saturday we slept in and later made our way to Mercato, an outdoor shopping area with lots of restaurants.


Afternoon macarons

We sat down for dinner at McCormick & Schmick’s and ordered our usuals.  Have I mentioned we’re 100 years old?  A charter bus pulled up to this bar next door called the Blue Martini as we were leaving, and a few dozen grandmas and grandpas got out for a night of dancing while we just went home.


Steak and scallops

Adam and I usually have low-key weekends because we spend so much of the time traveling to see one another and also because we enjoy doing things indoors.  I hope you had a relaxing one as well 🙂

Linking up with Erin for today’s post.

    I’m dying at your usual McCormick date. We go to Panera just about once a week (usually Sunday nights since at that point I’m too lazy to cook.) and we were just talking about how old we feel, going to Panera every Sunday at 5 and getting the same thing and complaining about the wait hhahah
