Hola! How was the weekend?
Morning workout – Taught 55 minutes of spin this morning. Felt good to get the legs going after a true blue rest day Sunday. Much, much needed.
We did this song for some speedy accelerations. 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off.
Let’s back it up to Saturday…my weekend started off with a bang. A 19.5 mile bang. Boom pow.
That run started just before 5 AM. Felt good to beat the heat a little bit. I did 4 miles solo, then met up with my running group. They had an 11 mile run on tap. Then I finished off the last 4 miles on my own.
I fueled with these yummy gels. I actually do like these because they’re easy on my tummy but have a nice kick of caffeine. I had 2 gels for the entire run but looking back I probably could have done 3. Still working on the whole fueling thing and what does and doesn’t work for my body. Plenty of water along the way. I love running with my group because they put out water stops every 2 miles or so. It helps.
I also carry this bottle along with me. Hydration to me is one of the most important parts of a long run so I try to make sure that I take little sips along the way.
Felt good to finish strong under a 9 minute pace. What a difference 70 degree weather makes.
After the run which took a little over 3 hours, not going to lie I was pretty shot. I recovered in these pink compression socks.
Went to brunch with mama and had some veggie tamales at my favorite spot.
Did a little bit of shopping at the boutique next door. I love the trinkets in this store…it’s like shopping at a museum. How cute is this sippy cup? So true.
Sunday I did absolutely nothing workout wise. Look at your girl taking rest days, like a boss. My sassy in pink Garmin came in this weekend too. I’m definitely taking it for a spin this week.
Went for Sunday Funday mimosas with this girl. We’ve known each other since we were in middle school. It was fun catching up with her.
We did some shopping after brunch and I found the cutest running skirt at this consignment store. Sassy new skirt to go with my Garmin.
I ended the weekend with an hour long massage. Pretty much the best way to end any weekend.
How was your weekend? Did you get a long run in? How do you like to recover after a long run?
