Happy Sunday! I started my morning with some Udi’s gluten-free vanilla muffins and coffee and tried some new-to-me creamer today too. I never like almond milk in my coffee because it gets all weird with like little chunks…hard to explain. But this creamer didn’t have that issue – two thumbs up!
I’ve been in a funk most of the day. I knew if I’d just get up and be productive I’d feel better, but I let myself veg on the couch for a bit. I bought season 2 of “Homeland” recently so I’ve been making my way through that. After two episodes, I dragged myself out for a 5 mile run. It was about 11:30, and while the temperate was only 75*, it was REALLY humid. I felt strong the first 3 miles (averaging a 7 min/mile pace) but I slowed down to about a 7:30 min pace by the end. After my run, I took Maizey on a short easy jog to cool-down and get her some activity. We’ve both been kind of pooped ever since. 🙂
My fridge was almost completely empty so I went grocery shopping ($130 later…) and really needed some new sauté pans, toothbrush heads for my must-have Sonicare and hangers so I went to Target ($100 later…). So, clearly, lots of excitement up in here today. 🙂 Anyway, here’s last week’s workouts!
S – Pure Barre (I think?)
M – Pure Barre
T – 4 mile run, intervals (no structure, just let my music guide it). I averaged a 7:15 minute pace
W – Hot Vinyasa Yoga @ the Charlotte Athletic Club (I was sore for days after this class!)
Th – 5 mile run, intervals (again, no structure just let my music guide it). I averaged a 7 minute pace.
F – rest
S – Pure Barre
What was your toughest workout last week? The yoga class felt hard because I didn’t have my own mat (hence I was slipping everywhere) and I was wearing running shorts and a t-shirt which is just a disaster for me in yoga. Sweaty slippery legs made twists difficult and my shirt was falling in my face. So the workout was difficult from an equipment standpoint. It was probably the hardest physically too, just because my body isn’t used to yoga. It felt great to be back.
