Well last week involved a lot of physical activity…just not a whole lot of running. And ya know, I’m kind of okay with it. Life happens sometimes and I’m not gonna get down about it. Especially with my new “take it in stride” philosophy I discussed last week. So this week, along with my (short) training recap, I’m going to share a few pics from the weekend of fun I had in Atlanta. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably realized I was in my dear friend Megan’s wedding this wedding. K and I drove down Thursday and just got back late last night. It was an awesome weekend and I’m exhausted, which is totally the sign of a good party 🙂 BTW, I’m also linking up with Tara, so please go check out here site!
Tuesday: speedwork: 2×1600 (8:19, 8:31), 2×800 (8:17 for both of them). plus a mile warm up and a mile cool down. Including warm up and cool down, it was 5 miles at a 9:09 pace. This was the second week in a row that Julie and I hit our goal track times and I was pretty excited about that!
Wednesday: 1.5 mile walk
Thursday K and I drove down to Atlanta with a stop on the way at Cracker Barrel. Sadly, we didn’t stay to eat, but rather wanted to pick up an audio book. Did you know you can buy an audio book at Cracker Barrel and then return it to any Cracker Barrel in the country within a week and then only pay a $3.50 rental charge?? How amazing is that?
Friday: Flywheel barre class with the bride-to-be, Megan. I intended to run before class, but our ten hour drive to Atlanta turned into twelve hours and I needed a bit more sleep. Class was really fun! It was a private bachelorette class for Megs, which I loved. A great workout with my friend – super awesome.
Friday night we had the rehearsal and then the rehearsal dinner, plus a visit to Megan and David’s favorite bar after that. Look at the beautiful bride-to-be:
Saturday was filled with the most beautiful wedding. Megan and David had a great day and I was really honored to be there and celebrate with them. Because I was up there standing with my friend, I don’t have any pictures from the wedding but can’t wait to see the professional ones because Megan was gorgeous. And obviously I was WAY too busy dancing to take pictures at the reception 🙂 What a great weekend.
This weekend, I’m running the Leesburg 20k. I plan on running 3 times this week, but nothing too crazy. I’m using the 20k as a reality check point and to see if sub 2 is actually attainable. 🙂 Happy Monday!
