It’s that time of week again – Friday, woohoo! Well, not quite for me, I have another work day tomorrow, so my shortened weekend doesn’t start until Sunday. Regardless, the feeling of a Friday night still feels great.
And here are my favorites from the week…
The Taco Truck – is on the Stevens campus every Tuesday now that the weather is warmer. That means that the one day a week I can splurge is Tuesday. I love #tacotuesday(s)!
Brett Larkin Yoga – this should actually count as my #2 and #3 favorite things for the week. I heard about Brett Larkin from Greatist on Twitter and decided to watch her Beginner Bedtime Yoga Sequence. I liked what I watching and decided to try it that evening before bed. I’m not sure if it helped me sleep (I usually have no problem falling asleep) but I was hooked. I never thought I would say that about yoga – as most who know me, know that I have an on/off relationship with yoga. About a year ago, I loved hot yoga, that is until I decided I didn’t really like it and sweating like a dog in a yoga class wasn’t terribly fun. After discovering the bedtime sequence, I found the Beginner Morning Yoga Sequence. Every morning so far this week, I’ve been following the morning yoga session, and every night except for 2, I’ve been following the bedtime video. I think what I really like about these sequences is that they are short. It doesn’t take much effort or planning for me to spend 10-15 minutes on yoga in the morning or evenings. Also, I feel more relaxed during the days after the morning sequence. Things that normally would make me very frustrated, I’ve actually been more relaxed about. That’s not to say I’m a relaxed person, it’s just that I am less tense.
London Marathon is in 29 days! – I can’t believe the marathon is less than a month away. Time is really flying. That also means that we leave for our trip in 25 days. I need a vacation – one away from work and one away from running (after the marathon that is).
My AgeUK singlet – or as the British call it, my vest came this week in the mail. While I feel like I am cheating on the Alzheimer’s Association a little when I wear this new singlet, I am proud to be supporting such a great organization. Mother Nature, I’m asking for warmer weather in the NYC-area so I can wear it on a test long run before the race!
RRCA Coaching Certification – For the last 3 years, I’ve wanted to sign up for the certification course when it is in NYC. However, every time I see the registration is open, I hesitate to look on the calendar or wait until I get home from work to sign up, then the class is full. Yesterday, I saw the email and immediately saw that the NYC class registration opened and I immediately signed up. I didn’t think twice about it and hopefully it works out for scheduling but I knew I had to pull the trigger. I’m excited I to have a spot for the class in July (ha, yes it’s 4 months away but at least that gives me time to get my First Aid and CPR certification). I’d love to be able to share my love for running with others.
And with that, happy weekend everyone!
How many miles do you have planned? – I have an easy run tomorrow (maybe 6?) and an 18-mile long run on Sunday.
Share with me your exciting Saturday plans so I can live vicariously through you when I am up super early to head into work.
