I hope you had a great weekend with lots of yummy food. My sister was in town for the weekend! After picking her up on Friday, we headed to a brewery for some live music. We each got flights so we could try a little bit of everything.
We also decided what numbers we each were on the Enneagram – have you all ever done this? Fascinating listening to each personality trait.
I think I’m a 5 with hints of 7. Although I’m pretty sure we all have a little bit of each number. My sister is really into these kind of tests so we talked about how to understand people with different numbers. I learned so much!
Saturday was a slower morning (we all slept in), and then I headed out for my long run of 11 miles. Two weeks until the Austin half marathon – it has definitely snuck up on me! I’d love to PR but I really haven’t been strict about my training this month, so I’m gonna have the mindset to just have fun.
Then, we headed downtown with some friends for some early afternoon drinks and appetizers. We went to Stoke for cocktails, and then split a bunch of small plates at Dandelion Market. Everything was so good, ranging from potatas bravas, chorizo dip, prosciutto crostinis and brussel sprouts.
Then, we did a comedy bus tour around the city of Charlotte that included some Queen City history and funny rambles. It was fun to experience Charlotte in a new way! We ended the night with dinner at Davidson Street Public House in the “noda” neighborhood of Charlotte. I gushed over this juicy burger and fries and ate every last bite. It was a small spot, but a great hangout. I would definitely go back to Davidson Public House.
We ended the weekend with a Sunday morning stop at Sunflour, my absolute favorite bakery in Charlotte. Their cheddar biscuits are the best in the city.
And, the rest of the day involved a trip to Costco, some meal prepping, yard cleaning, and watching the Superbowl. Even Tater watched!
And on to last week’s workouts:
20 minute strength training session + 5.5 mile run.
5 miles total with some speedwork thrown in between. I did this on the treadmill at work. I did a mile warm up, followed by three negative split miles, which were around 7:50, 7:30, 7:15. Then 1 mile cool down .
It was a GORGEOUS day in Charlotte. I was itching for a little bit longer of a run. I did 8 miles while listening to podcasts and checked out a new greenway close by.
30 minute run nice and easy. I felt a little sore so stretched really good after and did some light yoga before bed.
1 hour hot yoga
11 mile long run. I ran for about 90 minutes – it was chilly so I had on layers but warmed up quickly. At least it was sunny, and overall, an enjoyable long run.
2 weeks out from Austin!
Have you ever taken the Enneagram or other personality test/psychological theory?
Best thing you ate this weekend?
