Happy Friday, friends!
Thank you so much for all of your support as I am nearing the end of my pharmacy schooling! You guys have been there for me from the beginning and I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate it! You rock!
Before I jump into the fitness that I have been in to this week, I have to give a “shout out” to my amazing aunt who will be running Boston Monday!
She is a huge inspiration to me! I wish I could be there cheering her on in person, but unfortunately I will be sitting in a classroom reviewing for the pharmacy board exam. Text updates and virtual cheering it is!
Since I no longer post twice a day and give the details of each and every day, I thought Fridays seem appropriate to share with you what I have been up to from the previous week. I certainly love working up a good sweat and sharing with you what I am up to! So, this is my way to keep you guys in the loop!
So here’s a quick rundown of the week!
Friday: 6 mile run + yoga
I started my morning off with a gorgeous run around my neighborhood. I went technology-free, which was incredibly refreshing. Since I know the distance of certain routes, I know I did right around 6 miles. Once I returned from my run I had a message from Kendall saying she was going to a yoga class in the afternoon. I decided to join her, which was the best decision I could have made. I typically do yoga with a DVD, but this was the first time in way too long that I attended a class. Yoga is certainly something I need to incorporate more into my weekly schedule!
Sunday: 13.2 mile run
Even though I started my run relatively early, it was still incredibly hot out. I also was dehydrated from working all day Saturday. I always find it tough to adequately hydrate at work, but it is oh so important!
I did my go-to 25 minute yoga stretching DVD. I really love the stretching aspect, but I need to find a better DVD for the yoga portion. My mind just can’t seem to relax with my current one! If you have any recommendations, send them my way!
Tuesday: 5 mile run
It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since the Boston Marathon bombing. I did 5 miles with Kendall between class and an appointment. It was a great technology-free run to reflect.
Wednesday: 8 mile run
The weather was absolutely gorgeous out (after a brief cold freeze made it’s way through this week) so I took advantage and went to the trails. I kid you not when I tell you every single runner that I passed was wearing blue and yellow. It was evident that Boston was being supported miles away from Nashville, TN. It made me so proud of our running community!
Thursday: 3 mile run + body pump
I managed to squeeze in 3 miles before body pump. I have been loving 89! My favorite tracks are definitely squats, back, and legs. It’s such a great burn! I need to really find another day in my week where I can go to another body pump class. I’d love to take it twice per week for optimal results. By the way, anytime I hear songs from the tracks on the radio, I instantly think of the routine! Does that happen to anyone else?
I’m off traveling this weekend, but I hope you guys have a great holiday!
