I defnitely did, even though I skipped out on some runs.
Friday was one of those work days where you leave thinking, "I need a drink!" But instead of hitting up happy hour, I hit up the CrossFit box and gave this WOD a shot. Holy quadraceps! I didn't even finish the wall balls (I got to 145).
Being the happening, 20-something single socialite that I am, I went to bed at 9:30.
Saturday morning, my alarm went off at 4:45 because I was supposed to get up for a 6 mile run and had to be at my sister's house at 7:30 to head to the lake. Snooze was hit repeatedly until 6:00, then I foam rolled and stretched my very, very sore quads, calling that my workout of the day.
We spent the day at the lake enjoying the sunshine and doing a little fishing. The wharf/lake front is down a hill and everytime I went up or down, my quads burned! I was hoping the hill would work out the soreness, but come Sunday, DOMS was still hanging out.

My fridge was missing anything green, so after sleeping late and more
The weather was warm and nice, so my best friend and her 3 week old baby (my godchild!) came over for a late afternoon walk with me and Lola. We covered about 2 miles, chatting the whole time.
I still planned on a 6 miler, but realized it was already 6:00 PM (The time change is wonderful, but manipulative.) and I hadn't cooked dinner! A pork roast had been defrosted and I knew it would take at least 2 hours to cook, so my run was canceled. Along with the pork roast, I oven roasted cabbage slices (inspired by this recipe). This meal was epic. Probably the best thing I have ever cooked in my entire life.

I was starving (it was after 8:00). The pork wasn't cooked through yet, but the cabbage was done. So, I fixed myself a little cabbage as an appetizer. Then, I went back for more. (I've professed my love of cabbage before.) The pork was finally cooked, so I cut it up, added more cabbage to my bowl and topped it with some pork. Next thing I knew, the entire head of cabbage was gone! I ate it all. An entire head of cabbage into my belly in less than an hour.
Asparagus last week, now cabbage?!? I'm out of control. I need to go to Vegetable Addiction Anonymous. Seriously.
What did you cook/eat/do this weekend? Please, ease my mind and tell me you over indulged in something and also that you skipped your runs!
