I had meant to save loads of exciting stuff for this Weekend Report, but it turns out I already blogged about most of my weekend, so this is going to be very redundant! Apologies in advance.
Friday: I had planned on being social and heading out to Annie's birthday celebration, but a 5:30am wakeup call for my run, and a 10:30pm start time of the festivities, kept me locked inside where I was asleep by the time anyone would have showed up to the bar. At least I watched some Dateline NBC. What a life.
Saturday: 14 mile run, in the pouring rain, up and down some brutal hills. Some days, you have great runs, where you feel like you're flying, the planets have aligned, and you're in the best shape of your life. And some days, you have runs where your legs feel like concrete and you're basically a fat water-logged swamp creature slogging to move your feet even incrementally up and down. This run was one of the latter. But, I finished.
I sincerely do not remember what I did most of the rest of Saturday. Ah, age. Pretty sure I showered. Oh! I watched "Annie Hall" for the first time ever. It was a lovely film, as you know, though I have trouble believing gorgeous women were always into Woody Allen as much as is depicted in the film.
Then I took a 3-hour nap. I was gearing up for the Crystal City Twilight 5k, and trying to give my body a bit of a break between difficult runs. It didn't really work. The 5k felt fine, but it was my second time running in the rain, and that combined with the beer aftewards made me feel a bit woozy. It didn't help that I went over to Phoebe and Eric's afterwards for even more beer. By that point, 4 or so IPAs and 17 miles in, I was, shall we say, a bit tipsy. I made my way around midnight to Fast Gourmet for relief in the form of a giant Cubano sandwich. So glad I live close to that place for necessary quick drunk food.
Sunday: I slept till 9, then got my stuff together to wander towards Big Bear. Ideally I was going to do some work and some blogging, but as noted, they no longer have wifi on weekends! Wah. So instead I did do the crossword. Then I went to Eastern Market and bought a print for my kitchen and wandered around Capitol Hill a bit. That whole neighborhood is really too cute for its own good, is what I think.
Early afternoon, I zipped back to Adams Morgan to have lunch at Peter and Kay's, and then it was eventually off to Abby's on H Street NE, where she baked me and some other ladies some delicious vegetarian lasagna. I was all over the place on Sunday, in terms of DC neighborhoods.
Unfortunately, all that rain, running, beer and zipping around has conspired to make me a bit ill and I went home from work today, feeling woozy and achy. Here's to an early bedtime and feeling a bit healthier tomorrow.
