Run with a friend Saturday

Work yesterday was SLOOOOOOW, which made my day completely drag by.  The upside? My boss let me go an hour early which was great because then I could fit in a quick little workout before dinner.  I walked home and I always find it funny how this guy sets up a bunch of chess and checkers boards for people to walk up and play…He does this every. single. (week) day.  We’ll see if he’s there in the winter!

Before dinner, I just did a quick 40 minutes on the elliptical so that I could buy myself some of those extra calories that I was sure to consume during dinner.  

We ended up going to this BYOB Mexican place that I heard about on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.  There was an hour long wait so we just went to the bar next door first.

Let me tell you what, that restaurant was AMAZING!! Everything was so delicious.  If you are in the Chicago area, I strongly suggest stopping by.  It is called Chilam Balam.  Awesome.

This morning started off right! 

My friend Leslie came over and we had planned on doing this kick-boxing class before going on a quick 20 minute run.  However, 15 minutes into the class, we left because it was not a good workout AT ALL!  Maybe it was the teacher but it stunk.

Instead, we went with my husband for a 3.5 mile run followed by sprints up this hill.  It was tough!  My legs are killing me as I write this 🙂

Not sure what the rest of the weekend holds but I am sure glad I got such a great workout so early.  I especially enjoyed having other people do it with me.
