Week in Review
I always feel like I only remember the weekend when I think about what I want to write about for my week in review part. I guess I just love weekends!
Last week was a really good week for me. I ran three times last week and went biking. On Wednesday morning I got up early, went for a run, and then went on a Venus de Miles training ride. The ride was hill intervals up NCAR! NCAR is on a really big hill (or at least it’s big to me). We did 5 minute hill intervals (5 minutes up, 2 minutes recovery). I made it to the top of the hill and I pretty much felt like a beast! Wednesday was awesome!
Skipping to Sunday, I did another hill intensive workout, this time with Ty and three other women. We went to Conifer and ran a three mile route that’s a lot of uphill and downhill. The goal is to do a six mile loop. It’ll happen…
On Sunday I also had a Gap Magic* appointment. The whole idea was to have two outfits, one casual & one business, styled for you to wear to BlogHer (see Preview) featuring some of Gap’s new clothes, like their line of black pants. The entire appointment was one non-scale victory after another. I went down one-two sizes, depending on what I was trying on! SQUEE!! Talk about a great day. I found two outfits that are really cute. Both of them use multi-tasking pieces that are easily dressed up or down.
My two personal favorites are the Perfect Trouser Pant and the Ribbon T. I’ve always loved trouser-style pants and Gap hasn’t carried any that are especially flattering on me for a few years. I’m so excited to have another option for a black pant. I’m going to have to stock up to make sure I always have a pair available! As far as the Ribbon T goes, it was love at first sight! I think tuxedo-inspired shirts are just adorable, but it’s hard to find one I’ll wear since it has to abide by my limited/no ruffles policy. The ribbon was such a fresh take on ruffles that I couldn’t resist it! A post that involves a barrage of photos is coming soon 🙂
Week in Preview
This week I want to focus on my running. The mileage has been upped and I want to try to get most of it in before Friday. Mostly because I’m going to BlogHer in New York!! I leave on Thursday at 6am; that is seriously early. The conference doesn’t officially start until Friday, so I’m hoping to fit in a workout on Thursday afternoon/evening. I’m going to be giving a Geek Lab about altering a WordPress theme on Saturday. If you’re going to be a BlogHer, I would love to meet up with you! Leave me a comment, @ reply me on Twitter, or send me an email (ed [at] creepyed [dot] com).
My monthly goal review and my goals for August are coming up this week too.
*Huge thanks to Gap who picked up my shopping tab and Brand About Town who organized everything. The opinions here are all my own.
