Larry says “Happy Monday.” He also says, “I am cute.”
The only way to get me to take a full weekend of rest is to bring me to a hotel and lazy me up. So that’s what we did and it was glorious. We stayed in the hotel most of the time, cuddling in bed with the pup. We went outlet shopping and I did very well. And I learned the very hard way that as I approach 30 years old in a few weeks, I need to have a one-drink limit. Two drinks makes bad things happen.
The only productive thing I did all weekend was reserve my hotel for the Richmond Marathon. Last year I called in July to reserve, thinking I was way ahead of the game, and everything close was full already. This year I was determined to stay at the official host hotel, The Omni, which is practically on top of the start. I worried I still waited too long but we got a room! The reality that I will run another marathon is getting more real.
Now I’m ready to get back into a busy week. Stay tuned for a post later or tomorrow about a special private class Melissa and I are planning for you at Revolve. And I know I keep saying it, but this is the week I will add the “indoor cycling” tab to my blog so you can see all my playlists and class schedules.
In other cool “I have a blog news,” a t-shirt printing company called TShirtPrinting.org reached out to me and asked if I’d like a t-shirt designed with my blog logo at no charge. They’re trying to get their name out there and I have to say, this is a really great way to do it! I sent them my blog’s logo and t-shirt color preference, and a week later this women’s fit t-shirt arrived. I never would have thought to get a shirt with my logo on it, but I have to say I LOVE it! I should wear it to teach indoor cycling when I feel more comfortable.
I figured having Larry Q. in the photos would make a Dori-centric t-shirt a little more interesting.
And now, here are my workouts for this week.
Dori’s Shiny Workout Plan for the week of February 25, 2013:

Last week was mostly successful. Three full rest days last week plus one more yesterday was exactly what I needed to get re-energized.
- Sunday – Refine Method (1 hr) – Complete!
- Monday - Rest – Complete!
- Tuesday – Refine Method (1 hr) – Complete!
- Wednesday – Refine Method (1 hr) – Complete!
- Thursday – RIP Ride at Revolve (1 hr) – Complete!

Do you find taking extra rest days every few weeks helps your fitness overall?
