Reunited with the UNC Track

Good morning!

I hope your weekends have been fun! Yesterday morning, Matt, my friend Lauren, and I headed over to UNC in the morning for a little workout action! Matt and Lauren hit up the pickup soccer game (always happening on weekend mornings at the UNC fields):


And I was reunited with the UNC track! I haven’t been out here since training for my second half marathon in March (remember our adventures deciphering speed workout lingo?) — it was time to get back after it :) 


I wasn’t really feeling the sprinting yesterday, so instead I jogged around the track and focused on strength-related moves in between each lap. I was feeling motivated from the strength training guest post yesterday! :) 


I did situps, pushups, dips, lunges and squats, and even some stair running!



Workout win :)

Matt and I spent the rest of the day relaxing, and then headed out to go swimming at the Eno River quarry in Durham with a bunch of my grad school gang!  


It was awesome — we basically chatted and floated around in tubes for an hour… until a storm threatened to open up on us and we had to make a break for it ;)


Matt and I took advantage of the stormy night and had a pizza, sweatpants, and movie night on the couch :) It was glorious.

I just started my Sunday morning with a little Bob Harper yoga DVD action — by far my favorite DVD power yoga workout that I’ve tried. It’ll get you sweating for sure! Great runner’s stretches, too.


Now Matt and I are off to a water park for the day with my friend Hilary and her hubby Brent! I am SO excited — water parks are basically my favorite thing ever. I know, I’m 10 years old. :)

Have a great Sunday, friends!

    That is such a pretty swimming hole!! Haha I love water parks too, but not as much as roller coaster parks :) I love the header on your blog, so beautiful!

    Sounds like the perfect night :)

    So funny, I was at the UNC track yesterday morning too! Just at 6:45 before work :) Have fun at the water park!

    I heart the Track! ;-)

    Coincidentally I’ve been taking my 3 daughters to UT’s track, to help them build speed….
    (never to early to start challenging yourself)

    And runner’s stretches -Rocks!!! ;-)
    Keep having Fun while staying Fit, it’s a win-win!

    I’ve been looking for a new, power yoga video. Will have to check Bob’s out! Thanks for the key in!

    I am so interested in trying this dvd. I love Jillian Michael’s power yoga but I can image this one is a little better. Thanks for the tip. ;)

    I’m no yoga warrier yet. I need a yoga for kids DVD before this one!
