Happy Friday everyone! Thank you SO much for your kind comments yesterday about my post baby body progress! It meant so much to me that you took time of your day to leave me some love.
One of my BEST friends from college got in last night! Courtney and I were Alpha Phis together at UofA and I am so flipping excited she is here visiting for the weekend. We have tons of fun things planned and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. I am looking forward to showing her around my new home and playing with Emmie tons!! Before getting into the fun of the weekend, let’s take a look back at my week in workouts:
You might notice something right away … I didn’t stick with the Runners World Summer Run Streak. My streak ended after a measly 4 days haha. It just wasn’t working for me and it felt like there was “pressure” to run rather than just running because I love it. My meeting Saturday lasted WAY longer than I had planned and Sunday is family day. SO I am ok with stopping it I will keep running as I feel like it 😉
On that note I am officially registered for two races this fall. First, I am running the Army Ten Miler in DC in October with a ton of my FitFluential peeps including Maria, Lisa, and Katie … among many others! I am really looking forward to this race. It’s been on my #FitnessBucketList for awhile and it will feel great to check it off! Two weeks after that I will be running the Rock’N’Roll Savannah Half Marathon. I am really hoping that I can PR and reach my current goal of a 2:10 half after not getting there for the Go! St. Louis. I would love to add a couple of 5Ks in to my calendar between now and then also
Another great thing this week is that yoga came back into my life. It has been awhile since I took an actual yoga class and it felt SO GOOD to be back practicing with others. I mastered a head stand on my own (unsupported) but seriously fail at crow. No matter how many years I practice that pose alludes me …. Ashley, since I know you’re reading, when you’re done with your 200 hour yoga cert will you advise me?? Haha. If anyone else has a tip for this pose I would LOVE to hear it!
Any-who … got to get to my weekend! We are heading to Hilton Head Island tomorrow to hit the beach and the outlets. Rumor has it this girl is coming with us 😉
What was your favorite workout this week? Any fun plans for the weekend?
