Hey there world, how was your weekend? Mine was full of studying. Boo. It was gorgey out but I mostly sat on my porch and did work. I did however get three great workouts in.
Yoga was great! I love my Friday yoga. I will say that my yoga studio is in a dangerous location: next to an Anthropology and mere blocks from Real Food Daily. Normally I am able to resist the charms of RFD but on Friday I surrendered and it felt so good!
I was only going to get an appetizer and supplement it with my own food to save money but I couldn’t resist the charms of the weekly special, the Buddha Belly!
Saturday: 10 mile run
Saturday was a hot hot hot day so I waited until after 5:30 to go on my run. I made sure to fuel by not eating cheese and butter smothered things all afternoon but the first half of my run was rough. I tried to keep hydrated but I was so hungry for the first half. I ate my shot blocks but I wish I’d brought more. By the second half of the run the temps had cooled off which was nice. My pace was slower than I wanted it to be but were still a month and a half out from the half and my body felt better after this run than the last which is always a nice improvement.
Just got back from a mellllllow yoga sesh! She killed our arms and abs so I’m hoping that I feel it tomorrow. Definitely what I needed for another long week full of work. I’m at the point in the semester where working feels like a long slug to the summit of a mountain. Yoga and running is keeping my energy up. Last semester I burned out early and I’m hoping that regular running and yoga will help be avoid the burn out.
Did you workout this weekend?
