On Friday night, Dan and I went to see Louis C.K.!
|We didn't get to see his tummy though.|
(Not my picture: source)
|But I took one in the entry hall. So many flags.|
|Me looking way too eager at the Kennedy Center.|
We also got dinner beforehand at one of our favorite restaurants back in Rosslyn (where I used to live): Piola! Such a random place, sitting in the middle of a bunch of offices, but it has the best happy hour. Strong, big, and inexpensive rail drinks at happy hour ($5), a happy hour that goes until 8 pm, and free passed appetizers that are super good (think mini slices of pizzas and Italian sandwiches, etc.). And they have truly amazing pizza. So good I forgot to a take a picture until we were packing up the food to go, oops.
|Ugh that grey bar...sorry, need to figure that out.|
We hosted a mini-shindig at our apartment for the Superbowl. Notable since it was the first thing we had ever hosted at the apartment. Also I think this was the first event in my adult life that I hosted that went beyond "pregame" and actually provided food. It was fairly small--only three people plus us*--but I felt a little stressed about it! Just wanted to make sure the apartment looked nice and that everyone had fun.
*It was supposed to be four but a friend came down with something at the last minute. We missed you LC!
|My attempt at being all Martha Stewart-y with a set up bar, etc.|
Foreshadowing some amazing-looking brownies on the table...
|Snacks. I regretted (accidentally) putting the carrots in the orange |
bowl and the queso in the yellow one. Not Martha.
|This is the best-drawn football brownie you will ever see.|
Weekly Workout Summary: January 25 - February 3:
Cutback week! (Explanation). Fairly light week compared to what I've been doing lately.
Monday: Rest day. I drove for four hours (grad school apps-related travel), and for whatever reason (likely: seat positioning), driving makes my knee feel tweaky. Plus I just didn't feel like exercising! So I took the day off.
Tuesday: 75 minute power vinyasa class at my usual studio. They ran a Groupon deal this week that was open to current students (!! rare), so you'll probably be seeing more of these soon!
Wednesday: 4 miles @ 11:19. First run since my Saturday 8 miler, and my legs felt like lead.
Thursday: Quick 30 minute at-home yoga session and core work.
Friday: 3.3 miles - adventures in morning workouts. I did this on the treadmill and included 4x400 speed pickups ranging from 6.0-6.2 mph.
Saturday: 5.2 miles @ 11:12.
Sunday: More rest. Though I think cleaning totally should count.
Total mileage: 12.5. Back to normal next week! Also, total January mileage: 76.1. My highest ever!
