This weekend was full of some new-to-me things, and I’ve got a lot to report:
Friday, I ran 9 miles, which was the farthest I’d ever run. I’m right on track for my half marathon training, so it was a great feeling to be able to do that!
Does anyone have some good running playlist songs? I posted my current playlist here but I’m always looking for something new!
Saturday, I tried a new snack which I’m pretty sure will become a staple in my snack rotation.
Lindsay and I tried both of these on Saturday night, and we actually couldn’t pick which one we liked better. They’re only 100 calories per bag, and both tasted delicious. (If you’re like me, and you’re obsessed with Tostitos Chips with Lime… the Lime + Salt popcorn is an awesomely healthy alternative!) Popcorn is also a great snack to keep around the house since you can’t just “grab a handful” here and there. No mindless snacking here!
Sunday, I went to my first hot yoga class, at Hot House Yoga. As part of the Wellness Challenge, Hot House Yoga has given us some free classes, so I figured it was about time I checked it out!
If you’ve never done hot yoga, it’s done in a room between 105-110 degrees, at about 40-50% humidity. Basically, it felt like summer in Richmond. I did really like the class though. I’ve never been a huge fan of yoga (I tend to like more circuit training type classes) but it was nice to do something different than my usual workout, and I will definitely be going back!
What are some new things you’ve tried lately?
