Saturday morning I rode my bike and met Lindsey at a new to me yoga class at Willow Tree Yoga. Class was packed so the room was extra warm, but that just helped the stretch factor.
We did a lot of randomly sequenced poses and several things I'd never done before, including this one, which was hard, but I almost sorta got on both sides.
After a shower and a green smoothie, it was off to Thistledown Farm for some produce because nothing screams fall like heading out to the farm!
I also found this cute guy hanging around the squash, so I let him push my cart.
I always love the look of the turban squash (never knew what they were called, but just looked it up).
And you can't leave the farm without snagging the best apples in the world - Honeycrisp... and some fresh apple cider donuts.
The haul + a few pumpkins that are sitting on our front step.
Yesterday, I went on my first double digit run since the 50K and it felt pretty good. The sun was out and I was completely satisfied to be running along the river on a gorgeous morning. The leaves are changing so that's a nice treat too.
Happy to have survived my first week of class. The manfriend has been helping more around the house and even with meals, which I know will help to take some of the stress off my plate as the term picks up.
As much as I really enjoy cooking and meal planning, it's also a stress to know you have to make sure someone else is fed (and has enough to eat) every night of the week. Sure, he'd be fine with mac 'n cheese on a regular basis, but I can't say that I'd be satisfied.
But I won't lie, Trader Joe's or Annie's mac 'n cheese (healthed up with veggies) definitely makes an appearance at our house every few weeks. It works in a pinch and provides that comfort food satisfaction.
Ooh, we also went to see Trouble with the Curve on Friday night (via bike). We hadn't been to a movie in forever, but it was definitely worth the $8.50 per ticket. Love Amy Adams.
Hope your Monday (and October) is off to a good start! Anyone else do anything fall focused this weekend?
