Hello and good Monday to you! Hope you all had an awesome weekend full of fun. Mine was full of lots of running, some yoga and maxing and relaxing time! Let’s recap.
So Saturday was my 3rd 20 miler of the training season. I have been enjoying these longer runs because it has really been building my mental strength like no other. I think for the marathon distance that’s one thing I want to work on the most. It’s amazing how powerful the mind is…much more powerful than you think. Mind over matter for sure. Anyway…it took me around 3 hours, I drank some gatorade, water and had some Gu to keep me going.
Yes, I may have a problem with consistently going over the mile marker but I seriously wanted to keep going on this run. Let’s blame the awesome weather. I guess I had a bit of a second wind.
After the run I got all cleaned up and re-fueled with some acai fruity goodness. This place is my new post long run addiction. Breakfast to go.
Saturday evening was pretty chill, hung out with bae, ate some BBQ at his place and we watched a little bit of The Wedding Ringer. Funny movie.
Sunday I did some easy recovery miles to hit my quota for the week. 8 miles all smiles.
Followed by early service at church then some Core Power Yoga with my girl Camillia. They have a free community class on Sundays where they let some newbie teachers team teach so it was pretty cool. The rookie instructors did a great job and were trained well, although a couple of them you could tell were nervous to be in front of the class. It was cute because it kind of reminded me of how scared I was when I first started teaching at the gym. And now I dance in front of them and act like a maniac. It’s so funny how quickly you get over those nerves though.
Post yoga Buda Juice awesomeness. I have a thing for beets in juice form, not quite sure why.
And some sushi on the patio before watching the Cowboys game. So necessary.
Plus I’m super stoked that I hit just over 60 miles in training last week. Which is pretty high mileage for me but I’m very thankful for this strong body of mine that puts up with all of my shenanigans. Win win.
How was your weekend? Are you excited for any fall festivals coming up?
Yes…Grapefest is next weekend. Bring it on.
