Happy Friday! For the first time since we moved we are hanging out at home this weekend. We have plans with family on Sunday but up until then we have the whole weekend to relax and explore.

I finished my last run before my rest day yesterday morning. I’ve been struggling with feeling really tired from the heat and humidity so I decided to give myself a break and run on the treadmill. This made all the difference.

The workout called for: 20 minutes “out” followed by 20 minutes “back” quicker. I started with a slow 5 minute warm up, 20 minutes which average around an 8:30 and then the last 20 minutes I worked down to end at a 7:43 pace.

I had this pretty girl hanging out with me the entire time. She actually kept freaking me out because Wes was out running (I was supposed to go pick him up after I finished) and she kept running to the steps and looking up like she heard something.

Zoe Workout

I must have paused my music 4-5 times trying to see if I could hear anything. Silly girl!

Sorry for the grainy pictures, we don’t get the most light coming into the basement.

 

It’s been a while since I have shared some of my new favorite music, so I figured I’d compile another list for you all!

 

1. Fancy – Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX 

My husband doesn’t like this song. Probably because it gets stuck in my head and I walk around singing it all day but I really enjoy it for workouts!

 

2. Born to Do – Steven Cooper

We actually hear this song while watching a made for TV documentary on the NFL draft. It has an awesome beat and is another great song to pump you up for a hard workout!

 

3. Whiskey in My Water – Tyler Farr

Not a real fast song, but it is great for easy runs. Actually, I just really like this song!

 

4. Ready Set Roll – Chase Rice

A fun country song with a quick pace. I guess moving back to the south has really brought some of the country girl in me back out!

 

5. Yeah – Joe Nichols

Another slower song, but I love it for longer slow runs.

 

This morning when I woke up I pulled up my Time Hop app and saw this.

Charleston

3 years ago today we arrived in Charleston, SC for our honeymoon. Oh what I would give to be back there right now!
