Getting back in the groove

Happy Tuesday! It's only been 2 days since I've blogged, but I feel like I have so much to share.

I'm incapable of writing a nice and coherent post, so here's a photo recap ;)

I worked on Sunday, and I planned on doing a quick home workout, but this cutie called and asked if I wanted to bowl (that's my boyfriend, Bryan :)).

I didn't have my ball or shoes with me, so I didn't bowl very well (my average is 130-140), but it was still fun!

Yesterday I had class and work, so it was really uneventful. I woke up not feeling too hot, so I decided to skip the gym and call it a rest day.

After TWO unscheduled rest days, I made sure to hightail it to the gym after class. It took awhile to get warmed up, but I cranked out 3 miles @ 12:03 pace (I'm a pretty slow runner, but that's actually pretty good for me for not running consistently for a few months ;)) My knee felt really good during the run, but I made sure to foam roll the heck out of my legs/IT band since that seems to be helping :) I'm trying to run a 5k this weekend so fingers crossed!

After the gym I went and got coffee (a soy chai for me) with my cute friend Alexa. We've both been really busy with work/school lately, so it was really nice to catch up :)

When I got home I came home to the best surprise!

I just got the confirmation that my Brooks order shipped this morning, so I totally didn't expect it to come in the mail today. I guess that means I have to run again tomorrow ;)

What are your favorite running shoes??

How many rest days do you take a week?
I try to stick to 2, but sometimes work/school get in the way.


  1. Omigosh that's so exciting about your shoes :) You are going to rock your 5k this weekend; I fully expect a recap ;)
    My favorite running shoes are my Pure Cadence 2's (Brooks girl all the way), but I also love my Ghost 7's. I would absolutely love to try the PureFlows as well :)
    I take 1-2 rest days a week; 2 is generally what ends up happening but with half training that needs to change!

    1. Awe thanks girl :) I actually decided not to do it because registration's $40 (yikes), so I think I'll do a long run instead haha. I've heard such good things about the PureFlows!

  2. Nice shoes!

    I like Mizuno Wave Inspires the best!

    Although I tend to do my hip/glute strengthing stuff everyday, I really only workout maybe 3-4x a week.

    1. The Mizuno Waves seem to be super popular! I tried on some Mizunos last time I was at the running store and really liked them, but I can't remember which model they were.
