I’m back on the radar & wknd recap.

I know, I have been a little bit off the radar for a few days. But I’m back so that’s what counts, right!? Life has been treating me well, and keeping me fairly busy.

My day started off in a typical fashion, with a 4 mile run in my hood. There was a little bit of cloud cover but it was mostly humid and warm out. Just glad to get it done!

After the run I enjoyed my new favorite recovery drink. A yummy mocha iced coffee – delicious.
 
This past weekend was nonstop as usual! Saturday morning I coached my running group, we did an easy 6 mile jaunt followed by some stretching. After the run my partner in crime Ann and I went to check out our friend Brittani’s bootcamp! It was pretty hardcore! We did lots of core work and exercises using our own body weight. I also got to flip a TIRE for the first time in my life! It was super intense but I LOVED it!
I have taken most bootcamp classes indoors, but I loved switching it up and taking the class outside. Just being in the elements and getting some fresh air while you sweat it out makes it just a little bit more fun!
After bootcamp and running, I knew I had to teach an hour long dance class a couple of hours later. So I stretched and recovered with a granola bar and an iced chai from Starbucks. Recovery caffeine in between workouts – oh so important.
 
Dance class was fun. I always enjoy teaching at the Murphy Super Sport gym for the free towels awesome customer service.
 
After the crazy morning of workouts Ann and I went to brunch. We enjoyed mimosas and breakfast on the patio at Main Street Bistro and Bakery. I always love going there to admire their yummy pastries! One day I will actually eat one.
I went home for a nap to recharge my batteries then went out with Ann and some other buddies of mine. Overall it was a packed day full of fun!
Since Saturday was so cray cray, I took full advantage of a rest day on Sunday. I went to church with the boyfriend then did some grocery shopping. I bought lots of great snacks for the week – cherries, watermelon, and some of my favorite hummus!
I love dipping these mini sweet peppers in the hummus.
This week is going to be pretty busy with teaching dance classes (I teach tonight and Wednesday) but I am looking forward to getting an hour long massage tomorrow after work!
Have you ever done an outdoor bootcamp? Anyone race/run this weekend? What’s your favorite thing to eat at brunch?

  1. I am doing Jay Johnson Bootcamp now, and I love it! I am struggling with the hot weather though…I have to build up to running in Texas heat. How do you deal? I haven’t been to brunch in sooo long, but I would have to say hands down, Mimosas 🙂

    1. Hi, Lisa! Yeah running in this heat is no joke. After running in it for a while (and getting up before the sun rises) you get acclimated to it but it’s not easy! I have some friends that are doing the Jay Johnson bootcamp, they love it!! We will have to do brunch sometime and catch up! 🙂
