I sometimes look forward to Monday mornings for this very reason…
Well that, and I get to teach a rockin’ cycle class with my clique. It felt good to wake the legs up after a much needed rest day yesterday.
This weekend I got a long run in with the Luke’s crew. We are 3 weeks out from the Dallas Marathon! 21 miler done.
We ran through the lights and saw some holiday décor along the way. Temps were a bit warmer this weekend…highs in the 70s and 80s…and yes we are in November. And yes it was 30 degrees a few days ago. That’s Texas weather for ya…pretty unpredictable. Kinda like me.
It felt good to spike that mileage up though. Legs felt good and strong for most of the way. I was just happy to stay under a 10 minute pace for most of this run. Of course the miles go by much faster when you have fun peeps by your side.
Post run, I went home…got cleaned up and went to visit my hairstylist who I hadn’t seen in a minute. Pretty sure the best way to recover after a long run is to go get pampered and your hair did. Feels so good.
I was feeling like a color change so I went with this burgundy/wine shade for fall. I had been eyeing this color for a while so I’m glad I finally went with it. It’s a semi permanent though so if I get tired of it I can switch it up. But I dig it for now.
Sunday was church and a big grocery haul from Trader Joe’s. Oh and I broke down and bought some cookie butter because they basically never have it when I go there so I was shocked it was even on the shelf. Limit 6 at a time, folks. TJ’s doesn’t play around with rationing out these babies.
I always come out of Trader Joe’s a happier person. I have my sockeye salmon, hummus, tuscan kale and lots more goodies to get me through this week.
How was your weekend? Have you ever colored your hair a crazy color?
What’s your favorite thing to buy at Trader Joe’s?
