Just another manic Monday! Well, not really…it’s actually a pretty chill Monday. I am happy for that!
Ran 4 miles this morning – 8:17 pace – humid but nice & breezy. Tonite, spin class! Looking forward to that.
Breakfast was yummy! Blood Orange Chobani greek yogurt topped with chia seeds and honey.
This weekend was comprised of running, dancing, getting a massage from my favorite therapist (YES), and a little productivity with just a sprinkle of laziness!
Yeah pretty much a typical weekend.
Saturday morning I was up bright and early for an 18 mile training run. My plan was to run 12 solo and then the remaining 6 miles with my running group at 7 am. So…guess what time I was up and ready to go? Yup, you guessed it…4 am. Nice.
But, it got done! All 18.55 miles of fun!
18 miles...worth smiling about? Sure, I guess so.
After the run, I took a small chai tea latte break and booked it over to teach Danceaton at noon over at the 24 hour fitness in Irving. The class was energetic and lively. Typically they just look at me like I’m nuts but everyone was having a good time! We did a lot of dropping down low and crazy stuff…I don’t know how I did it but I had a little bit left in the tank and felt good. It could have had something to do with the carb loading dinner from the night before…
turkey meatballs, whole wheat pasta, feta cheese...YUM!!
My recovery beverage definitely helped as well…
Saturday night, I was a vegetable. I stayed in and did some reading, watched the last little bit of the Olympic Trials. So emotional. I loved watching Shalene Flannagin, Desiree Davila and Kara Goucher crush it and make the Olympic Team! It really made me proud. These women worked so hard and are going to represent the U.S. in an awesome way.
Sunday Funday I went to Gaby’s Danceaton class at 24 Hr Fitness In Carrollton. After dance was church, then brunch with my mama at Houston’s Restaurant in Addison. They have this amazing ahi tuna salad that is to die for! This might quite possibly be my last meal on earth. Okay, maybe not, but it really does come close.
On Sunday I also tracked some of my pals that were running the Houston Marathon! I loved the live results page where I got to view them all at the same time. So cool.
It looked like everyone had a great race. I have this thing where when my friends are running in a marathon I get up extra early…like without my alarm clock all concerned, because they are the first thing on my mind. I can’t help it. It’s the running mother hen in me.
Sunday night I got some of my race medals together and finally hung up my medal rack in my apt! It looks great in my bedroom. I have a few more to add to this collection (5 more half marathon medals in my old bedroom at mom’s house) so they’ll be added to the rack soon. I know – it’s a little crooked, I’ll work on that later.
I also bought a purple tutu this weekend for the Galveston race! What do you think, purple tutu…tye dye shirt…winner?
Countdown til the Galveston Marathon – 20 days and counting! Thus the taper begins!
Have a great week!
