Somehow it’s Monday again already, but this week I’m feeling much better about writing up a weekly recap. Rather than complaining about the cold/rain/etc., I am writing about our heat wave and my outdoor runs! And I’m not complaining about the heat (yet). There was quite a bit going on this week so this post will be a little different than usual. Let’s get right to it!
Of course, let’s start by talking about running! It gradually went from chilly to HOT this week. Like on Monday morning it was 30 degrees, and we hit the mid 90s by later in the week. I ran outside on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Tuesday I was wishing I had worn gloves.
And on Thursday I was in shorts and a talk top!
It was supposed to rain over the weekend but luckily the mornings were pretty dry so I got in a run on Saturday morning. It was amazing how green everything was compared to just a week ago!
I completed my strength training workouts on Monday and Wednesday this week. I realized last week I did week 3 again instead of week 4, so this week I did week 4. (There are some slightly different reps each week). So I will probably just add on another week to this phase to make sure I get all the weeks done. I also got in some spinning on Monday after my strength workout.
I kept up with yoga this week! I did short sessions after my Tuesday and Friday runs.
This week I received my May Stridebox, with lots of fun products as usual.
I tried the Honey Stinger Snack Bar and it was really good, but kind of messy! It has chocolate on the outside which crumbled as soon as I took a bite, so I needed to move to a table to eat it rather than while sitting on the couch wearing white pants.
I’ve also been testing out Google Clips! I’ll be doing a full review in a few weeks, but so far I’ve enjoyed it! Basically it’s a tiny camera that takes pictures when it senses that someone is in the frame.
I became an aunt again this weekend! Rob’s sister and her husband welcomed their second little girl into the world on Saturday afternoon. We are all so excited!

I think I have said this before but May is such a busy month! Between lots going on at work and traveling I may not be blogging quite as much, so be sure to follow me on Instagram!
Did you have a heat wave this week?
Is May a busy month for you!
Anyone else try the Honey Stinger Snack Bar?
