Happy Monday friends! Hope you had a great weekend. I had an early wake up call to teach my hour long spin class this morning. Back in the saddle with some new cycle shoes.
Post workout recovery drink – extra hot soy chai from the ‘bucks…great way to warm up on a chilly morning.
Let’s back track to the weekend. Friday nights are usually low key for me but I got off a little bit early from work and ventured on over to a friend’s Zumba class. It has been a YEAR since I’ve taken a dance class! I used to teach a similar class (hence my blog name) so I have to say that I really miss it. It was so good to be back on the dance floor with my girl Sharanda. Here’s an old pic of her class…can you find me?
I definitely needed a bit of dance therapy as of late since my personal life has been a little hectic – due to some issues with the whole long distance scenario the boyfriend and I decided recently to end our relationship. You know I never get real personal on here and like to keep things light but since I love ya’ll I figured I’d tell you what’s up. I’m actually doing ok (trust me…it has been a long time coming) but it’s just so good to be around friends and staying active. And busy.
Anywaysssss…Saturday I got some run therapy in. I slept in until about 9 am and then was out for a 12 mile run in the hood. One tough cookie- that’s me.
It felt good to maintain just under a 9 minute pace for this run. Last run over 10 miles before marathon number 10 – Cowtown in 2 weeks.
Later on that night I did Saturday night church and then went out for karaoke and dancing with a good friend. The K Wang is probably my favorite line dance right now. Well that and the Wobble. Never gets old.
My go to karaoke song – Killing Me Softly. Every time. This was after about 2 glasses of wine. And a patron shot. Don’t judge.
Sunday was a rest day so I met up with my girl Natalie for brunch at Penne Pomodoro. Hello $1 mimosas and bellinis. I had this spinach and goat cheese salad with smoked salmon. Probably my favorite thing to top a salad with is smoked salmon. Hits the spot.
Oh and I also finally made it over to the outlets and cashed in my $50 Nike gift card. I may just rock the turquoise skirt for my marathon. And the ‘Running Wild’ shirt of course.
How was your weekend? Do you have a go to karaoke song you like to sing? Ever tried Zumba?
