Hey hey! Happy Monday! I had a great weekend. Friday night we had dinner with some friends, I went for a run on Saturday morning and then went to yoga with Anna at Foothills Brewery Tasting Room. Well, it actually wasn’t in the tasting room since they were doing construction or something, but regardless – yoga with a friend was fun! (They held it in the nearby indoor track where I did my first CrossFit competition.)
I also spent some quality time in front of my TV this weekend. 🙂 I started watching Friday Night Lights and I’m already hooked. So good! I posted my snack plate on Instagram and a lot of you commented how much you love FNL. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many comments on an Instagram post – ha! Can’t wait to keep watching!
Last week’s workouts were pretty good, but man, I am so over this heat and humidity. It’s been absolutely brutal lately. Every morning the humidity has been around 85-95% with temperatures in the mid to high 70s. I do love the sweaty runs, but I’m starting to itch for fall weather.
Last Week’s Workouts
M – 3.5 miles, 8:15 pace
This was my second run in my Newtons. I didn’t really love them… my legs felt heavy and awkward. I’m hoping it was the weather or tired legs, but I’m going to try to withhold judgment on the new shoes for now.

We grabbed nitro coffee after our run at Ardmore coffee and just chatted and relaxed. It was so nice after a super sweaty run.
