So I am one week into my summer externship and am really enjoying it. I am working for a Superior Court judge downtown who hears criminal cases. While I have no idea if I want to pursue a career in criminal law (leaning away from it currently), the exposure to what goes on in the courtroom has been awesome.
Last week’s workouts were on the lighter side – I was taking it easy post 13.1, and also easing into my work schedule/figuring out when to work out. And one night, a happy hour beat out the gym. Whoops!
- Monday – OFF
- Tuesday – 2+ mile treadmill run, light weights
- Wednesday – Spin
- Thursday – OFF
- Friday – 6 am Spin
- Saturday – OFF
- Sunday – Cardio Barre
On Friday, I got my booty up to work out before work. I had been wanting to take the 6 am spin class offerred M/W/F for awhile, but couldn’t rationalize getting up that early when I didn’t start class last semester until 10 – on the early days.
Finally, I set my alarm for 5:05, out the door by 5:15, at the gym 20 minutes later and I spun my little heart out for an hour. Afterward, I fueled another addiction and STILL managed to get into the courtroom 20 minutes earlier than normal. My goal is to make this a habit at least once a week.
After work, I met up with Chanel in Santa Monica for dinner. At first we wanted to try much raved about Milo + Olive, but the place is tiny and was mobbed, so we ended up on Main St. at Library Alehouse, a personal fav.
I had a steak sandwich was just okay, but my Strawberry Wahine Wheat beer from Surf Brewery in Ventura was a nice break from my usual IPA. It was refreshing, crisp, and you could totally taste the freshness of the strawberries, straight from Oxnard!
On Saturday, 4/5 of the posse (Aviva, Armita, Taylor, and I) headed out to the Angeles National Forest to shoot guns. I am very much anti-guns, but I wanted to check “shooting a gun” off the old bucket list. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Here’s evidence. Also, apparently I have terrible technique. I can live with that.
Today featured work [closing arguments for the trial], a short gym workout, and then I’m off to try a new yoga class with Whitney!
Happy Monday, friends!
