Yesterday I went running through Discovery Park with a gal from my cohort and her dog. It was so fun! We went on a different loop that I don’t usually go on with LOTS of stairs! Bring on the heavy breathing and pounding heart. It was such a good workout! We went a little slower than I usually go but I love running with people so much. Running is just so good for you and running with other people brings you closer and creates lasting friendships! When I run I love talking, I can’t help it. It makes the run go by so fast and while talking you learn so much about yourself and the people you are with!
I am also starting a cohort running group (all of the people in my education class)! And so many people are interested! I cannot wait to see everybody love exercise and running/jogging/walking.
Flashback to last weekend! Cody and I went hiking at Rattlesnake Ridge and it was pretty sweet!
We had a little chipmunk friend join us! He was so cute!
The view was so beautiful and it was awesome sitting on the cliff! Cody didn’t quite agree…:)
Also, random fact; My freshmen year at WWU I ate spinach salads almost everyday and when that year was over, I was also so over spinach. Even the thought of it made me gag. But then a few days ago I saw it in the salad bar and it just felt right again. So bring on the spinach! And kale! This is my new favorite salad! Lemon dressing, kale (or spinach), craisins, and feta!
Oh man is it good.
And this has been my favorite breakfast!
With a little bit of this on the side!
Not to brag or anything, but I am quite proud of my latte art…;)
Also, I chopped off a little bit of my hair!
And before I let you go, this the workout that I did last night after my run! It was pretty killer!
I did the elliptical type machine that doesn’t have arms…I don’t know the name of it but I’m sure you know what I am talking about!
Anyway, let’s call that machine the no arm elliptical.
No arm elliptical 10 minutes
20 wide leg frog jumps
20 in and out jump squats
5 assisted pull ups
I did this 3 times which equaled out to just about 45 minutes. It was a sweat drenching workout! The things that I did between the elliptical sets changed a little bit every time and it was awesome. I love incorporating HIIT into my workouts.
Have a great Monday night/Tuesday everybody!
