This week I finally feel like I've hit my stride with running and working out again. Instead of a full blown write-up, here's a quick synopsis via pictures:
Stairs! 10 rounds of stair repeats to be exact. My calves hate me.

Barre courtesy of Physical Kitchness where she kicked my booty. My calves really hate me.
My legs were screaming
Barre BURN courtesy of Staci. This is my first time taking this class and I loved it! I forgot how much I love this type of workout format. We did an outdoors warm-up that consisted of mobility drills including walking toe touches, toy soldiers, high knees, butt kickers and suicide sprints. Then we headed into the studio for a five round progressive workout (reps of 10-20-30-20-10) that consisted of push-ups, supermans, tricep dips and jump squats per round. We ended with a fun abs routine of russian twists, mountain climbers and uneven arm planks (which were new to me). My arms (and legs) were J E L L O!
Staci killed me. I want her arms. #goals
Ended the day with a sunset 10k run + 1 mile cool down walk.
These are a few of my favorite things
As much of the sunset as I could get through the fogThursday:
4 mile hard run with hills followed by a 3 mile walk with the crew.
I love these faces!

6 miles of trail running with Heather and Eric. So happy!
Sweaty post run smiles
Chrissa's last barre class. She killed me. I am going to miss her classes so much. I'm bummed that she's leaving us to move to sunny San Diego with her gorgeous family but that just means I have to make a road trip out to SoCal to take her classes out there right?! In the meantime I'll just stalk her blog. Not that that's creepy or anything.
She's pregnant but still does better than me. I'm ok with it.
Also, ever since my dehydration scare at Nanny Goat I've been drinking water like crazy! I have this lovely water bottle at work which is an obnoxiously bright neon color that screams DRINK ME. It sits right in front of my screen and boy do I make sure to drink my water with that thing right in front of my eyeballs.
How was your week? Did you get all of your workouts and/or runs in? What kind of workouts do you like best?
