Weekend {lack of} Shenanigans

Guess who has two thumbs and successfully had a kind of lazy weekend?!? This girl!!!

Seriously, for once I didn't over do it or over commit. I was in bed Friday by 9pm. Up and at 'em at 5am for an early morning, rainy run with Chandra followed by lots of cleaning and hanging out at Ashley & Tyler's while the pups got as muddy as possible. Sunday I studied, relaxed and watched t.v. before heading over to my parents for some pool time and yummy dinner! Not too bad right?

one. Still ran with Chandra despite the monsoon! It started raining right when we met up at the park!
two.  Post run selfie :) Nice and wet outside
three. Yummy coconut grits recipe that I'm now obsessed with. Recipe coming soon.
four. My baby girl being a cleaning helper by watching her puppy brother
five. My new Toms on the way to Ashley & Tyler's!
six. Princess Maggie lounging on Sunday morning
seven. My little swimmer with his grandpa! He seriously love the water.
eight. Cheesin' with my boy
nine. Emma loves her nephew dog.

Now onto last week's workouts!

Sunday: Rest/Active Recovery / Taught Step
Monday: Strength + Stretch / Strength + Stretch + 3 miles
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run / OFF
Wednesday: Strength + 3 miles / Strength
Thursday: 35 min tempo run / OFF
Friday: Rest / 5 easy miles
Saturday: 7 mile run / 6.25 miles in the rain

Planned Mileage: roughly 17.25 miles
Actual Mileage: 14.25 miles

Now, I'm not one for excuses, but it's been a rough few weeks. Big things are coming my way though. I can feel it. Now it's time to get back on track. I have a feeling this week is going to be a good one!

Don't forget to enter to win a Nathan handheld water bottle! It'll definitely help conquer those hot summer runs!

Happy Monday y'all!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,


  1. I was feeling pretty good about getting up at 7:30 a.m to start thinking about the gym and then I saw that you are a rockstar who runs at 5 a.m. Can you do a post one day about how you prepare for that, because not eating correctly before an early workout has been killing me!

    Even rockstars need their rest so I'm glad you got some. Moose and Maggie are so cute and I'm glad they're getting along!

  2. 5AM on a Saturday? That's just wrong! LOL! ;) You are one motivated lady, so impressive!!

  3. I love your motivation to run & workout. I'm really hoping to get better at it once I'm back in Texas...9 more days!

  4. TOMS! I forgot I've always wanted toms, LOL!


  5. I still think it's an impressive week! Are you training for anything in particular?

  6. Sounds like the perfect weekend...

    I thought I was doing good getting up and out the door at 6:00 am on Saturday morning, but you blew me out of the water!! Way to go, girlie!!

    And those TOMS...I die. I tried getting myself a pair when they were 30% off on zulily, but they sold out too quickly :( Most definitely going to go on my Christmas list...

  7. Sounds like a great weekend and much needed and deserved. I finally had a relaxing weekend too! It is always nice to have nothing to do.

  8. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me. I love when there's no major plans :) Love your TOMS, very cute!


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
