The greatest date

Hey!

Happy Sunday to you.  I was excited to get out of bed today because I had a date with my darling friend Kelly.  We went to Athleta for another free class!  Today was BootCamp with Brighton and it rocked my world.  I had never tried a boot camp class before but within 10 minutes, I decided that I love it for the following reasons:

-It is done outdoors (fresh air ahhh)

-The moves are easy to do & you can feel them working (squats, burpees, push ups, etc)

-You can make each move harder or easier as needed (15 or 20 lb “sandbells”, you can run faster/slower, squat faster/slower, etc)

-It will help you build muscle & seems like a GREAT addition to marathon training

After the class, the cool gals at Athleta were kind enough to let us shop before they were even open.  Remember that gift card I told you about yesterday??  Just wanted to reassure you that I had NO problem spending it (in about 20 seconds) 😉

I got an adorable pair of running capris, a running skirt, and finally got a hydration belt! When I got home, I modeled the belt for Lali and even demonstrated how I would look running with it on.  (How he puts up with my post-workout energy is beyond me!)

After spending my gift card  my amazing shopping spree, Kelly and I headed over to Jane for some seriously good coffee and conversation.

The rest of the day I will get some chores done, study, stretch, and lounge around.  I hope you are having a pleasant day!

Have you ever tried a boot camp class?

Do you like to weight train?

Do you have a hydration belt for long runs?  What brand/features do you like best?

XO,

  1. I love weight training. Seriously, I think I have a problem. I also really like Pilates. Like you, I can feel both of those things working as I do them, and there’s something really good about that feeling. Your hydration belt is really cool! You look like such a hardcore runner!

    1. I am really loving weight training too!! Love to feel strong! I have only done pilates a handful of times, but have liked it. I love the pilates spring board that I get to use at a class called Burn. Isn’t the belt funny?! I look like a total running dork but will really be glad to have it when I start hitting 12+ mile long runs/
