We had yet again another wonderful weekend at the lake house. Three out of four items on my agenda happened, just not the hiking 😦
Mom and I ran 9.25 miles(85 minutes) and they felt GREAT! We were only planning to run 8 but it was just going so well we ended up adding an extra 1.25 miles. We had a nice pace too- 9:11 minute miles, yowza! This last long run before the 1/2 marathon (in 7 days!) really made me feel more confident that I’ll be able to do these 13.1 miles, and do them without dying at the end. Should be fun 🙂
We experimented with a few different prune dishes
The other granola, the yumyumyum granola, is pictured near the bottom. Look forward to a granola bar recipe made of it in a few weeks.
Kitchen experiments aside, we had some yummy dinners and lunches too
Mixed roasted potatoes. The purple potatoes were so cool!
Leftover salmon salad topped with my balsamic vinaigrette.
It was so much fun being up there and it’s always nice trying out new foods and ways to prepare them.
This morning after returning home bright dark and early I got a nice lower body and ab workout in.
25 minutes of lower body: stationary lunges, squats, calf raises 3 ways, plie squats, step back lunges, wall squats and leg circle and lifts. I went through all of these 2 times. The first time through with 5 lb dumbbells in each hand for the first 5 exercises, then for the 2nd time through I used 8lb dumbbells.
15 minutes of abs: bent leg ab lift, crunch 3 ways, plank, weighted diagonal body cross, weighted standing side bend, and the hundred. I decided that I wanted to try out each ab move of the days I’ve added so I did. I went through the first 5 exercises 2 times, then ended with the hundred 1 time. It was a pretty nice and quick ab workout with variation, which I love!

Hope your weekend was wonderful and you got some time in for exercises as well. Does the body good 🙂
