I am sorer than sore… and it feels painfully good. My workouts the past month have been somewhat lackluster – lots of walking and rest days (though both deserving of their time and place) – which sort of explains why I haven’t shared a Weekly Workouts post in 4 weeks.
This past week, however, I got a surge of motivation (I think it’s the new gym!). I had 7 solid consecutive workouts – 4 gym workouts + 3 outdoor runs. It felt SO good.
Today is another story though – my body is completely fatigued. My inner thighs scream with each step and squat I take, and my core feels like it’s squeezed inside a corset.
And now for the weekend… things that made me happier than happy:
Saturday FM with P
This beautiful + huge $5 bouquet from the FM
Strawberries that taste like candy – so sweet!
Banana oatmeal with FM strawberries + leftover dessert dukkah (in my new bowls!)
