Instead of renting a movie last night, I watched Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves on cable TV all snuggled up on the couch.  I tried to find a new release earlier in one of those dollar-a-day rental machines, but nothing jumped out at me.  It ended up being the perfect movie to watch on a Sunday night, especially since I hadn’t seen it from beginning to end in over 10 years.  I don’t remember it being as funny as it was… especially the scenes with the Sheriff of Nottingham.  Click here to read some of the best quotes from the movie.  Here is one of my favs: “That’s it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.” – The Sheriff

I went off the exercise radar last week in the sense that I didn’t follow a normal schedule by any stretch.  I still worked out, but instead of being so strict with myself I just did what I wanted when I wanted to do it.  My knee was getting a tad sore the week before last so I knew I needed to cut back on my running just a little bit.  Plus the extra sleep in the mornings has served me well.  I only worked out four days last week but they were all high quality.  I did a lot of time on the Arc Machine, my favorite go-to cardio when running isn’t on the menu.  Click here to read about the benefits of this machine over the treadmill & elliptical.  It doesn’t put any stress on my injury and I can go as long as my heart desires.  And in all honesty, I should be taking full advantage of this flexible time before my Augusta Half Ironman training starts up next month!
