Sunday & Monday Fun Day

by ashleyd on May 28, 2012

Yesterday we woke up at 4:45am in order to make an 8:40 flight back to New York City. Having some time to breathe and relax was important to us this weekend as was making it down to Georgia to see some of my closest college friends.

We were back in New York by 11:30 and were greeted by the best gift ever- no taxi line!

By 3pm we were on the rooftop of our friends Tribeca apartment building enjoying beers, laughs, delicious food, and sunshine!

We contributed to the afternoon by bringing Emily’s delicious soba noodle salad, chips, salsa, and two summer beers!

The views from their rooftop were amazing especially as the sun started to set and the clouds cooled off the afternoon heat.

As the afternoon heat turned into a cool, clear evening we enjoyed burgers and more beers while enjoying the night scene.

An evening of beers and homemade cocktails made waking up to meet my friend Genna for my first hot flow yoga class at Prana Power Yoga. I’m going to do a separate post which will get more into the differences between a regular yoga class, but let’s just say that it was an hour filled with sweat and faster flow than I’m accustomed to these days.  The studio is located right above Union Square and offers an average of six classes per day ranging from 6:30 in the morning to 8 at night!

After class we met Bo in Union Square for some Farmer’s Market shopping. It’s been ages since we’ve had a stocked fridge complete with produce and fresh cheese!

After stocking the fridge Bo and I headed out for a run along the East River to soak up the day’s beautiful sunshine and blue sky.   IMG_2619   IMG_2622

  

The heat and sun cut our run down to a 5k versus the original four miles we’d planned. Regardless, I’m still proud of us pushing through the heat and of myself for squeezing in two great workouts on this one Memorial Day Monday.

Our afternoon and evening plans include relaxing with a movie at home and a healthy homemade dinner complete with marinated lemon and garlic chicken, zucchini carpaccio, Caprese salad, and nice cold Pinot Grigio.

Until tomorrow, make sure to check out these two great workout opportunities!

1. Today kicks off Runner’s World Summer Running Streak. I’m super excited about giving this opportunity a chance! All you have to do is run at least one mile per day, every day, starting today Memorial Day (Monday, 5/28) and ending on Independence Day (Wednesday, 7/4). That’s 38 consecutive days of running. It’ll be tough but I feel like I can always squeeze in at least a mile!

2. On June 9th I’m going to be busting out a sandy and sunny workout with the amazing Jackie Warner thanks to Well+Good NYC and Evian! Want to join? Luckily they are giving away 6 VIP passes! Enter here to win!

Looks like an awesome weekend! I ran this morning as well, and the humidity was killer, summer is most definitely here.

I love that you talked about one of the yoga studios around Union Square b/c I live in the area and there are so many that I’m curious about! I just froze my gym membership for the summer b/c I like working out outside and I want to try some of the classes that I always read about (Soul Cycle, etc…). I tend to get bored in regular yoga, so I’m really looking forward to reading your post about power yoga!
