Hey, hey. It’s Tuesday. But I haven’t had the chance to recap last week…so here we go!
Monday was a fabulous day/night at the Nike Track Club. See recap here!
Tuesday, after work, Erin and I treated ourselves to some fresh pedis and new shoes. Originally I was going to exchange my Mizuno Wave Riders for a larger size (8 to 8.5), but ended up trying on a pair of Adidas Supernova Glide 6 Boost (in lavender), and they felt almost too good to be true. I decided to switch it up and try these for a bit.
On Wednesday London convinced me to get my first Vitamin B(utt) shot. So in between Yoga Sculpt and running, I met up with her and Kelli (who just spectated) at Spark Health for some “Be Happy” vitamin shots. Normally, I HATE shots, to the point where I pass out. But the benefits and the effects convinced me so much – that, and the fact I’m always looking for more ways to gain energy. Afterwards, I proceeded to my running workout, and although it was very tough, afterwards I didn’t feel like it was that bad (although I definitely felt it throughout). I’ll attribute that to the “Be Happy.”
On Thursday, even after working in Del Mar for the past 2 years, I went to my first Opening Day at the Races! I am thankful to Jen (my “bossosciate – just kidding!), Tyler and Papa Coppo who allowed me to tag along with them, in style! It was such a fun day as we bet, drank and watched the races from a table in the Turf Club directly in line with the finish line!
Saturday we had a long and hilly 14 miles. Although it was physically hard, mentally it was a breeze running with our newly formed trio – Erin, Andy and me. Afterwards we hit up Naked Cafe and I surprisingly changed it up from my usual Plate of Prosperity to the Naked Crossanwich. It was HEAVEN.
Then I took an Epsom salt bath, got my nails done (aka tried to stay awake in the chair), grocery shopped, got coffee and attempted to make a movie after picking up my bf who Uber-ed to the racetrack (yes. Uber. p.s. we live over 30 miles away). Unfortunately a movie didn’t happen, but a bomb-ass dinner at True Foods Kitchen did. Later I tried to pick up dessert from Extraordinary Desserts to continue the “I did a long run today” celebration. However, the take-out line was even longer than the dining line, and it was 9:30pm. So instead, I ended up going to 7/11….
Sunday I went to my first Pilates class ever! It was a free class at Core40 sponsored by Lululemon. And it was so challenging! It engaged muscles in a different way from how I normally use them. I also liked that it wasn’t super intensive like a bootcamp or HIIT, but really refined and focused. It worked my muscles to the point of shaking and made me break a minor sweat.
Then we BBQed and grabbed some afternoon iced coffee, and the BEST chocolate chip-pecan-shortbread bar. Later I finished up the day with some Sunday meal prep.
