This morning, I was scheduled to sub teach a spinning class, but no one showed up! With the beautiful weather outside and the Indy 500 occurring this weekend, I can’t say that I blame people for not wanting to be indoors. Since I was already at the gym and everyone in my class was a no show, I decided to make the best use of my time and did a strength training workout focusing on chest, back, abs, and I finished off with a good and much needed session of foam rolling.
I then headed home, made myself a smoothie, put on my bathing suit, and headed out to the pool to soak up some more rays.
Today’s smoothie included a bit of frozen peaches and bananas, Greek yogurt, protein powder, water and ice, spinach, and a touch of peanut butter.
Cold and refreshing!
Some friends showed up at the pool a couple of hours later. Matt, one of our good friends getting married this summer, was heading out on a run, but didn’t have anyone to go with. So, I quickly threw on a running outfit, laced up my shoes and headed out for a quick 2 mile run with him.
It was very hot, and we chatted the whole time. So, even though it was only two miles, it still felt like a good workout! We ended up completing the run with a pace of 7:55…not too shabby!
After that, it was back to the pool and time to hydrate.
Yesterday, I bought myself a little coconut water treat. This was my first experience with Vita Coco and it was very tasty! Instead of just trying the regular flavored coconut water, I decided to try Tropical Fruit. While I did enjoy the flavor of the Tropical Fruit Vita Coco, I think I would like the regular better. I really enjoy the taste of coconut water on it’s own, so I think for future reference I will either choose plain or chocolate 😉
We then laid in the sun, read magazines, and just relaxed for the rest of the day. Eventually, I was in need of some cooler air, ice water, and dinner.
I made a delicious batch of Spinach Salmon White Wine Pasta, not only as a tasty dinner but for part of a fun project that I am working on. More details to come later…
I hope you all enjoy your Memorial Day tomorrow!
