How’s that for a random post title 😉
What a weekend! On Saturday, we woke up at 2:45am to head over to the Indy 500. We left the house at 3:15 and got to the track a little before 4. You have to get there EARLY to put your car in line in order to get into the infield. After you park, people get out of their cars and tailgate at 4am!!! It’s so crazy.
We ended up getting into the track around 6ish and set up our spot. It was 97 degrees in Indianapolis! We were so lucky to get our usual spot that we’ve had for the past 4 years. It is the ultimate spot because it’s under a bunch of trees and close to the bathrooms. Thank goodness we got this spot because it was literally about 20 degrees cooler in our spot than it was 20 feet away from us. It was PERFECT.
We even had a baby pool to put our feet in if we got hot. It was perfection!
The race doesn’t even start until noon and then it’s about 3 hours long. Needless to say we were at the track for a LONG time. It was fun but I couldn’t tell you one thing about the race…I don’t even know who won. I was there for the party in the infield and it was a blast 🙂
Somehow I forgot to take pictures. I only have a couple that other people took.
This is my best friend who came in town from Chicago and this guy went to college with us. I hadn’t seen him in like 8 years! I wore my hot pink cut off shorts. I LOVED them and need to find somewhere else to wear them to!
My boyfriend also brought an adult slip-n-slide that he made. He greased it up with baby oil (probably not the best thing in 97 degrees!!) I hope no one burnt too bad because of the oil!
You can see our spot under the trees. We had a lot of people including a bachelor party. We had 4 guys who are aroudn 7 feet tall. I have never seen so many people stop and stare at us because of them. That’s what happens when you hang out with a group of basketball players I guess. I felt like a midget and I’m 5’7!
Overall it was a great race. Everything worked out perfectly. I woke up Monday feeling great and wanted to lay out. I went to Walmart and bought this awesome baby pool for my back yard. After seeing the one at the race, I wanted one of my own. It’s HUGE! I was able to completely lay down in it. I think it’s going to be a huge hit this summer 🙂
Here’s the pool I got.
Due to the holiday weekend and race, I had a not so clean weekend with eating. I did NOT turn down a burger and beers at the race, pizza after the race and a sushi buffet the afternoon afterwards. I was way too relaxed with my diet than I should have been. That just means I need to kick it back into high gear this week.
I did manage to get a workout in on Saturday. My boyfriend and I hit the gym and he trained me. He has trained several people in the past and is a meat head himself 😉 He really knows his stuff. We worked my shoulders, biceps and triceps. We don’t go together that often, but when we do, I feel like he’s always impressed with my increased strength.
There were several times where he told me to start at a certain weight and I corrected him telling him that was too light. I shocked him several times with my weights :).
I’m also going to switch up my training. After I posted about my period issue… I emailed my coach. I told her my body isn’t functioning properly and I’m worried about it. I’m now going to focus on gaining more muscle.
So I’m switching up my training to focus on gaining more muscle and my diet has changed to increase my starches every day. I hope this will be enough to get my body on the right track!
Did you do anything fun for Memorial Day weekend?
