TGIF, friends! Hope you’re gearing up for a fun and active weekend. I’m actually staying in DC for once and pretty pumped about enjoying some local adventures and lots of outdoor time.
On the workout front this week, I kept things pretty low key after the Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on Saturday. I’ve been itching to get back to CrossFit but I felt like I should dial it back a little first – I was feeling pretty run down earlier on in the week from all the travel and running lately! Sunday was a rest/travel day, Monday I kept things casual with a 1 hour ish walk with my friend Karen, and Tuesday morning I met up with friends Sokphal and Ashley for a social run.
It was a beautiful morning for a run! Love starting the day with some fresh air, sweat, and chatter with friends.
I was feeling pretty sluggish on pace since I just did the half, but we had fun out there. I ran down to meet them and didn’t turn on my watch for that bit so I’d say I covered just over 5 miles!
Wednesday and Thursday were all about yoga! On Wednesday evening, I met my college buddy Sarah at Edge Yoga for their 6 p.m. class taught by Rebecca. Loved it! And the bartending school across the hall is always entertaining. :)
On Thursday, I checked out a new (to me, but I think it’s relatively new in general?) studio in Falls Church called Blue Nectar Yoga. They were offering free classes this June on Thursday nights (apparently in July their Tuesday night 6 p.m. class will be free) at 6 p.m., so my friend Ashley and I decided to check it out. Ashley ended up getting stuck at work but I was glad I went anyway! It was a “rock ‘n’ flow” class so it was active and with a nice, quick flow. Fun music, too! I loved the class and the studio – it was gorgeous and big. Great teacher (Jane), too. No pictures because my phone died, alas. :)
For those of you participating in the Summer Shape Up, please keep those comments and updates coming! Gina and I love reading them. I just posted the Week 3 Meal Plan and Grocery Lists for those of you shopping this weekend, and Gina put up the week 3 workout plan – the specifics of the week 3 workout will be up shortly.
Enjoy the weekend, friends!
What was the best/most fun workout you got in this week?
