Ran on TM –
5.25 miles/45 mins
easy, relaxed pace, listened to a podcast on my phone with my sweet headphones
Xtend barre class -
I did an easy 45 minute run on the treadmill, changed into dry clothes and headed to a 7:15am barre class.
I usually take classes from Bri, but today Stephanie, the owner of the studio taught, and it was ridiculous hard, maybe the hardest class I’ve been to yet. There was lots and lots of pulsing, little movements that make every muscle feel like they’re on fire. So basically me in class today:
After class I had to hurry to meet Monica to head up to the Surf City Marathon race expo in Huntington Beach. It’s such a cute, beachy themed expo that I almost thought we were going to a luau for a second. Where’s the roasted pig, all I see is protein bars?!
We met reader Leslie from Portland who was sweet enough to come say hi and is running the half tomorrow:
By the way, is Monica not looking ten shades of fabulous these days? I asked her to spill her secrets, but all I heard was her mumble something about how I don’t have red hair so she doesn’t like me…
And lastly, I already Facebooked this picture, but I saw Sandy from BIC Bands – sweetest girl. She continues to donate $1 from every band sold to charity, love that she stays true to that and continues to create such cute bands that are made here locally.
I picked up a new chevron print band (I don’t think it’s online yet) and these brand new sparkly hair ties/bracelets. I’m going to try them out in the race tomorrow so I’ll let you know how they hold.
