Weekend Recap

October 31st, 2011 | Ann

Okay, I had a pretty awesome weekend, as far as weekends go.

After Jay and I finished the Fearless 5k (click for link), we went over to Kelly‘s house for a BBQ. Her and her husband Sean hosted us, along with Corryn, Amanda, Mel B and other co-workers and friends. It was great to see my blog friends and a nice afternoon of eating and catching up.

Sunday, I slept in, drank coffee and read blogs in bed, and spent some time with my little buddy, Biscuit.

My little buddy.

I also got to tweet with Lynne as she finished her very first marathon. Stop over to her blog and give a congrats for being a marathon finisher! (click to link)

After getting ready for the day, Jay and I took Biscuit to a local dog park, and he ran around and had fun for about an hour. We logged probably 2+ miles of hiking, and enjoyed one last weekend before it snows.

Sorry, fellow Minnesotans. I think the snow is coming – sooner rather than later.

Because he was filthy, Jay and I gave Biscuit a bath when we got home. He hates getting in the water, but once he gets clean, he enjoys himself. His favorite part is what I call “towel time” – when I dry him off and he gets all fluffy.

Crabby dog - he'd rather be dirty.

I swear this whole blog post isn’t about my dog.

After the dog park and the bath, we went to Target. We picked up our usual weekly groceries and happened to come across this beauty in the “fitness” aisle –

Massage Stick.

We have a foam roller and use it for sore muscles, but I had never seen anything like this. We took a quick inventory in Target – Jay ran it over my back, and I ran it over his – and we bought this massage stick for the low, low price of $14.99.

It was the best $14.99 I’ve ever spent.

Working on my leg.

This massage stick is amazing. It works deep into muscles and you can use it yourself, or use it on someone else. Jay and I spent a long time working it on eachother’s sore muscles – my hip and his IT band.

Oh haaaay, massage stick.

To be honest, I love, love, #LOVE this massage stick. Love. I think it has been one of my most favorite purchases and I am so excited about using it before and after running, spinning, Zumba, and yoga. It feels SO GOOD on my muscles and it’s a great reward after a hard workout.


I’m looking forward to a good week – making healthy food choices, staying active, tracking calories, and spending time with family and friends.

Did you have a great weekend?

Have you made any recent discoveries of healthy living products, like my beloved massage stick?

    Biscuit is pretty cute. You can never have to many pictures of him on the blog.

    I saw that same stick at Target a few days ago, but failed to “test” it. Now I feel as if I must go back. I’m sure my calf muscles will thank me later.

    Happy Halloween! :)

  2. I am so going to Target today.

    Aw, thanks Ann. :)

    Glad you had a great weekend. I may need to make a trip to Target today for that massage stick.

    My weekend was quiet/productive/relaxing. Besides the race we went to a Halloween party for a bit, I got to nap lots and clean. Considering the fact that next weekend could be crazy, I’m quite pleased at the way that this one turned out.

  5. If your entire post was about the dog, it would still be ok. :)

    That massage stick looks torturous but awesome. I wish I had known Target sold them before I left because I have no idea where to find one in New Zealand. But I want one too!

    That massage stick sounds amazing! I have been looking for something like that since I don’t want to kill my legs, between the biking and now getting back into running!

    That roller looks really nice… or kind of painful with the little pokies!
    I’ve seen a little of your blog before, so I just decided to stop by and comment! Hello!
