This week felt like an absolute whirlwind. I always feel like weeks that start with a Monday holiday are hectic, and this definitely was. It seemed like every day there was something going on, with a super busy and social weekend! It was exhausting in the best way possible. Let's get to a recap of my week of workouts!
10 mile Bike
Morning bike ride to kick off my Labor Day. Dan and I started at the Art Museum and followed the "Art to Heart" trail, which follows some greenways to head to downtown Raleigh. The trail goes through Meredith College, NC State, and a bunch of parks. Our route was a lot hillier than I expected but was really fun! I loved the parts that were on greenways, but didn't love biking along a few busy roads. It was something that was on my Raleigh To-Do List though, so I'm glad I got to cross it off.
30 min Rock Run with Becs
Went out on this run in the afternoon while listening to this fun playlist. I'm finally getting out of my regular route and exploring the neighborhoods around me which is so much fun! In Pittsburgh, my neighborhood didn't have any sidewalks so I'm really enjoying just being able to pick a direction and go (without having to worry about getting hit by a car).
Dan and I kicked off our weekend by heading north to Wake Forest to bike on the Neuse River trail. We've biked on it once before on a different section, but I really liked this one. It was much more quiet and not crowded at all, plus the scenery was gorgeous. We made it to Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve and then turned around and biked back to the car for a nice easy bike ride.
Woke up early to meet up with Charline to go on a fun run. We started off at North Cary Park and ran to Lake Crabtree along the greenway. We explored some of the trails in the park and it was incredible. The trails follow along with the water and aren't too technical, so you can really take in the scenery. We only did a few miles on the trails but I want to do a longer run there next time. It was such a great run with some great conversation as well!
After resting for a bit from the run, I headed to a local brewery for a yoga class my friend Erica was teaching. It was outdoors and surrounded by trees that provided lots of shade. The class was tough but it felt great to be outside and pushing myself. Plus- the beer at the end definitely helped :)
