So it’s Monday again…a sunny, sunny Monday which takes the edge off it a bit. Hope you all had a good Easter weekend and enjoyed 1 or 100 chocolate rabbits.
What happens when you leave a baby...or me...alone with chocolate.
So, I feel like I have said this a lot lately but, sorry for the radio silence over the last little while. I have been running around like a mad woman (which I am) with work and have barely had time to clean my clothes let alone thinking about blogging.
Now don’t feel too sorry for me because most of this craziness has been travel. As I shared earlier, I was punished with 10 days in Vancouver and spent part of last week in Atlanta! I think I have driven through Atlanta once when I was 12 on my way to Disney World so I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Atlanta is a vibrant city with so much to do. I loved it! ...Think the amazing Targets, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods helped too...
Chocolate Cherry Larabars? Is this Heaven?
As soon as we landed we checked into our hotel (Shout out to Le Meridien Atlanta – YOU ROCK!!!) and immediately headed to mid-town for the Dogwood Festival. This was an amazing suggestion and one of my favorite parts of the trip…mostly because there were margaritas!!!
SUCH A GOOD RESTO!
Smoothie in a pineapple! SCORE!
We had long, long days of work but made sure to take advantage of it including checking out Café Sunflower. This is a Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant which was AMAZING!! My co-worker (who was a rocking travel companion) and I literally wanted to eat everything on the menu…at least once.
The only down side of this trip is on Tuesday I woke up with a BLUE calf. Yes folks, BLUE!! I won’t share a picture with you, just trust me. So I got to spend a half day in an Atlanta Hospital which left me with coin in the bank but a pass to fly home which is what I was looking for.
The downside as it looks like a have a cyst in the back of my knee…which is super painful and makes running out of the question. So I have been spending the last few days resting (blech), walking (blech) and swimming (yay!). I am hoping if I am a really good girl and listen to my Doctor and Trainer then I will be able to be running in a few weeks and will be in tip top shape for Ottawa.
So here is fair warning, there will be no running posts from this girl for the next little while, and for those of you who interact with me in the flesh I will likely be a little bit cRANky until I can get my run on again.
Anyways let’s not dwell on that right now…it will get me all huffy.
What cross training do you do when you can’t run? How many Easter bunnies did you eat? I hope lots!
Hope you all have a great week!
