Hermit Weekends

Posted by Anonymous

Good morning everyone! Happy Monday!

Every once in awhile I need a good Hermit weekend. A weekend, away from people and spent at home. Work has been so busy lately and there have been soo many people around every day that I was so happy to have one of these weekends. I didn’t fully intend on being a recluse all weekend but it sorta worked out. I was only out in public twice!

Friday night, I did go out for dinner to the restaurant my sister works at. I enjoyed a delicious and much needed Caesar!


And some authentic Italian Pizza.


Saturday morning I headed off to the gym. I knew I wanted to do a longish run but hadn’t decided how long it was going to be. I was able to get a good treadmill with some good TV sound so I settled into a good mindless run with the TV.

I ended up running for 2 hours and getting in 23.36 km/14.6 m.


That would be the end of any time I spent in public on the weekend.

I did spend quite a bit of time with this baby this weekend and it did me well.



Saturday night, I made a nice dinner and watched Bad Grandpa (don’t judge)!!


Sunday, I did some laundry and cleaning and then vegged out the rest of the day and night. I even watched the Super Bowl and actually enjoyed it!


I woke up this morning feeling recharged and ready to be around people again!

Don't forget about our Fuelstrip giveaway!

How do you feel about Hermit weekends?

Did you do a long run this weekend?


  1. I'm new to the foam roller. Do you think that the foam roller has improved your recovery? has it improved your running?

  2. Oh it's so good to be a hermit some weekends and recharge the batteries!!

  3. Hi Wayne, it for sure for sure speeds up recovery for me! I really pay if I do t use it

  4. Works for me 😃.

  5. What is the trigger thing? And impressed with your 14+ miles!! I call those hibernation weekends :)

  6. It's a foam roller used to roll your muscles.
    That is a good name for it!!

  7. There are times that I could do with a hermit weekend - never truly happens because the boys are around, too but sometimes we all sort of close up for a bit!!!
    Your dinner looks awesome.
    No running for me after Friday (till this morning) - great job getting in a nice long treadmill run!

    LOVE Hermit weekends. I wish I had more of them. And I need to learn to not feel guilty after having one.

    Holy! Good job on the treadmill run! The pizza looks so delicious, there is something about authentic italian pizza, I think it's all in their crust and tomato sauce.

  10. Thanks Kim and great job on your super looooong run!!

  11. Once in awhile is no need to feel guilty.

  12. Thanks Heidi. There is right! I love their crust

  13. Hermit weekends are awesome! Sometimes you just need it! That's a solid looking long run on the treadmill too, you are really rocking training lately!
