Friday Five: My Week in Pictures

Happy Friday! Are you pumped for another Friday Five Link up with MarCynthia, and Courtney? This week's theme: Fitness Snapshots. The hosts were very active this week and did a great job documenting their workouts. I was active, but forgot to keep up on my workout photos, so my snapshots aren't all fitness related. Whoops! Let's get started, shall we? 

I had to skip my Saturday morning group run because my knee hurt after my Friday 2-miler. I woke up at 6:45am, walked up and down the stairs a few times, did some stretches, and realized my knee still ached. I went back to bed after deliberating with Alex. It was soooo nice to sleep in! Instead of running, I did an hour of Tracy Anderson, Fitsugar, and random knee stretching videos on Youtube (while watching Gilmore Girls). I think I was inspired by last week's Friday Five!

On Sunday, Alex and I headed out to Antrim Lake. While he circled the lake, I went down the bike trail that snakes along the river. I saw 3 or 4 people the entire time. It was beautiful, but slippery so I only ended up running about 3.1 miles instead of my prescribed 5. My knee didn't hurt as much... but it still wasn't 100%.

A view from the multipurpose trail. 
Finished my Sunday run with a lap around the deserted lake.
Before Alex went to a Superbowl party on Sunday night, we made the best pizza ever. It was a white pizza with radishes, daikon, Yukon gold potatoes, green onions, brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and cheese. We made a second red version with turkey pepperoni, but this was my favorite. (We use Target Whole Grain pizza crusts.)

YUM. (Photo taken pre-oven bake.)
I left work early for my Wednesday night run to take advantage of the warmer temperatures. Unfortunately, I didn't eat enough or I was in a funk because once again I cut my prescribed miles short. I have a trail run Sunday and I'm a bit concerned. It's going to be rainy and warm-ish (read: muddy) and it will be tough. My goal is to keep myself injury free.

Not really a snapshot, but... 
I'm currently reading The Martian. I wasn't loving the beginning (great concept, but it felt like the narrator was listing off steps in a science fair project), but it just took a turn and introduced a new storytelling mechanism. I hope it continues to get better. I've heard such great things about it.

That's all for this week. Next time I'll stick to the assignment. ;) Don't forget to check out the host blogs and other linkup participants!


  1. yes to keeping injury free. way better to cut a run short than to not be able to run due to injury. you did the smart thing!

  2. What a pretty trail. The pizza looks delicious. Good look at Sunday's run!
