This morning I taught 55 minutes of sweatastic spin class. My Monday crew always represents and works hard! I even had some peeps from my Wednesday night class get up early to come cycle with me this morning. We woke the legs up with some hill repeats and sprint work. Great start to a new week.
Hope you all had a fun weekend! A huge *CONGRATS* to you all who rocked the Chicago Marathon on Sunday. I wore my favorite Nike top yesterday in honor of my Chi-town runners!! Chicago was my very first 26.2 so I have nothing but love for that race.
My weekend was pretty chill…and much needed! I had lots of down time which for me meant more free time to get my run on!
Saturday I coached my group over at Luke’s Locker…12 recovery miles on deck. Kept it at an easy 9:45ish pace. It was cloudy, windy and warm for most of the run.
After running and chillin’ out a bit I had to go help my mom and her teacher friends with their dance routine! They are going to be performing in a talent show at school and needed help with their moves. My mom is supposed to be Michael Jackson. We are working on her stage presence.
Saturday night I stayed home and babysat my little cousins Claire and her sister McKinley. We carved pumpkins…actually they were oranges. I found this little project on Pinterest. If you need a fun fall craft to do with the little ones I definitely recommend this. It’s a little messy but way WAAY easier to crave an orange than a pumpkin! We filled ’em up with peanut m&m’s. Claire was a happy as a clam with her orange pumpkin.
Sunday I ventured out for yet another run. 5 miles out on the Chisholm Trail. It has been a while since I’ve been out there but I enjoyed the view.
That night I made a fun fall dish – Pumpkin shells with spinach and cheese. I will post the recipe later on this week! It was scrumdiddlyumptious.
How was your weekend? Have you made anything yet with PUMPKIN?
Have you ever been in a talent show?
