Friday Favorites

It's finally Friday!! This has been a fun and busy week. I'm linking up with Katie over at Running4Cupcakes for another Friday favorites!!

Today is Day 10 of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge, which means no more fiber drink. Yay!!

I do love my new shaker cup though. 

Favorite-I have loved my workouts this week:
Sunday-volleyball scrimmage against really good teams. It was really fun to play some exciting volleyball in a really hot gym. 
Monday-3 mile run + 2.5 mile walk with the pup
Tuesday-2 hour flag football practice. I went and got some new receiver gloves to up my game!!

Wednesday-volleyball practice + volleyball game
Thursday-45 minute bike ride + this workout from Pinterest. 

Friday-stretching and light run
Saturday-long run (8-10 miles depending on how I feel)
Sunday-rest day and driving range-gotta work on my golf game

New this week:
I went to the chiropractor yesterday for the first time ever!!  I knew my back was messed up, but I didn't know how much an adjustment would help. 

I feel great! Going back today for follow up to make sure I'm still aligned before my long run. My hips feel better and the random shooting pains have stopped. I'm excited to see how it affects my running. 

Looking forward to:
-I'm most looking forward to seeing my cleanse results tomorrow. 
-Hitting the farmers market
-Park time with the pup
-Cookout for Mother's Day

What are your favorites from the week?

Do you go to a chiropractor?

What are you looking forward to this weekend?


  1. Woo hoo no more fiber drink - onto max phase = yeah energy!! PS my name is Katie not Katy. :)

    1. Ahhh!! I am so sorry!! I fixed it to Katie. I have a friend who goes by Katy, so I'm a dummy and typed it out of habit.

      In other news-where I am not a dummy, I can't wait to have more energy!! I am going to need it for a long run this weekend and a half marathon next. :)

  2. This week my favorites were starting weight training, spending time with family, and happy hour today.

    I haven't been to a chiropractor, but have been considering it due to tightness in my neck and shoulders. I will definitely look into it further, glad you had a good experience!

    This weekend I am looking forward to spinning, a run on Sunday, and spending time with my mom for Mother's Day.

    1. The chiropractor is helping me. I recommend researching one that helps runners. My guy helps me stretch out tight hips too. I hope you have fun at spinning and a great run. :)

  3. I've never been to the chiro, but after my Hus just recently went, I kinda wanna go! I mean, I'm not in terrible pain, but with all the running and workouts, I feel like it would help! AND, I know they can help with issues from head to toe - not just your back.

    1. I totally recommend going. I even had one leg shorter than
      the other, but I'm a mess. :)
