weekly workouts: 6/21-6/27

FullSizeRenderSunday: 4-mile treadmill run upstate (not my fave)
Monday: upper body free-weight & abs sesh in my apartment (while watching TV) – rest day from training
Tuesday: 3.5-mile morning run outdoors (humid!); hour strength & abs after work at the gym
Wednesday (today): 5-miler outdoors (gorgeous out!); potentially a boot camp class tonight
Thursday: 3 miles on the plan
Friday: rest from running day; plan to do strength & abs in the gym before work
Saturday: some sort of run BUT not going to stress about mileage, because….

i’ll be in Charleston, South Carolina!

i’m so stoked to go visit this city, about which i’ve heard only amazing things from absolutely everyone, so i have high expectations of loving it. i’m really grateful to be able to visit so many new-to-me cities in the past year, and i can’t wait to share my Charleston experiences with you guys!

i’m guessing it’ll be H-O-T and humid, so i don’t have any expectations for killing my runs, and i just want to enjoy myself on my mini vaca and take in the city. and beaches. and seafood. and rooftops (are there rooftops?). and relax. and i’ll definitely be praying for the city as i explore it, in the wake of their horrific church shooting.

timthumb.phpbacktracking for a moment to the workout theme: i’m always looking for new running music, so please guys, send your song suggestions my way! here are two i’m digging on my list right now:

“Cool” – Alesso
“Echo” – Panic is Perfect

What’re you jammin’ out to while running/working out these days?
Anyone visited/adore Charleston? Tell me what I need to see/do/experience/eat/drink!

  1. I’ve heard Charleston is awesome! I was going to do a marathon there, but I chose Columbia instead. I liked the race but I wish I chose Charleston because it’s definitely the cooler city! I’m excited to see pictures and hear about your trip. Have a BLAST!

  2. I moved from Charleston 2 years ago and go back frequently!! It is such a wonderful city and I definitely miss it. There are soo many wonderful restaurants and bars/places to go! Red’s on Shem Creek is great for a Saturday afternoon cocktail–they are right on the water and it is always a fun atmosphere (Tavern and Table is right next door and has amazing food!). There are so many new restaurants/bars downtown that you can pretty much not go wrong! Enjoy and have soo much fun πŸ™‚

  3. Great running! Hope you have a blast in Charleston! I’ve never been, but I’m sure you will find the BEST places πŸ™‚ And I can’t really help you in the music area cuz I run without it! I only have music for my treadmill runs and it’s all the same stuff…I haven’t updated in awhile. But I always love when ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ comes on. Such a good classic in case you don’t have it already πŸ˜€

    • you’re a music-less runner?? i didn’t know that! aw and thanks, i’ll make sure to try to find some great spots and write all about ’em. πŸ™‚
