Yesterday was a lot of computer work. Two of my classes ended, so I spent the majority of the day grading finals. I took a break for a quick breakfast – two eggs, a waffle, and a spicy veggie patty, then it was back to grading. I got half of one class all finished before my run.
I had a tour of a gym here in town late yesterday morning, so I parked by the gym and ran before my tour.
Making progress! I shared HERE about my last fastest mile. I reset my watch any time I am out of running for awhile. It’s kind of like a blank slate to come back to, which is how my body feels after not running for a little bit. I haven’t really been working on speed, I haven’t done any speed or track work, I’m just running, which feels amazing right now. My fitness is starting to build again, which is helping with my pace. 4 second improvement from October 9th (8:41) during my run yesterday.
After my run, I toured AYB, which I LOVE. I have been having a hard time finding motivation to lift, so I need some help. I am super impressed with AYB and even got to try one of their classes for free last night. It was incredible. I think I smiled the whole time. After my tour, I finished grading for one class, then had a quick lunch of leftovers, then had a meeting. After my meeting, I graded half of another class, had another meeting, then finished grading for my second class. The day flew by, but I got a ton accomplished.
When Jake left for work, I headed to our house to finish sanding our trim. This room is officially done. All three bedrooms are ready to be primed and painted! That’s a good feeling.
After I finished this room, I met Kayla at AYB for a workout class. I failed to take any pictures, but we grabbed beers at 4 By 4 and then dinner at Galloway after our class. I am sore today, which is good! I needed to get my butt kicked a little bit. I cannot wait for more classes at AYB. All of the trainers I met so far are super friendly and knowledgeable.
We have a fun weekend planned – our friends, Kallie and Coty, are getting married Saturday, so we have their rehearsal dinner tonight and then the wedding tomorrow. They met at a party at our old house, so we like to think we set them up. ; ) So excited for them! Other than that, I will be spending the day today writing. I need to get some manuscripts written up, so it’s a writing day for me.
A few fun Amazon finds:
I swear by this Body Glide for every run. My sports bras always chafe me around my rib cage, so this is a must. I’ve been using it for about two years and never run without it. It is unscented, which I like.
I am obsessed with this tunic dress. I got a large because I wanted it a little longer/baggier. It’s super cute worn as a dress or open with jeans and booties. I washed and dried it and it didn’t shrink.
