More Summer Workout Music

Hi friends! I have been getting some requests to share more of my workout music, so I am here to deliver. But first, I wanted to talk about this afternoon’s (blazing) run outside with Roadie.

I have been hearing how unbearably hot it is from family and friends down in Florida, and today I finally felt it.

I wanted to get a run in and needed to do so before an appointment I have at 4, so I took my chances against the sun and mid-80 degree heat of the afternoon and took Roadie out for a loop on the trails.

I would have sworn that Fall was approaching a couple of weeks ago. This week, however, Summer feels and looks like it’s here to stay for a while.

We ended up taking a couple of breaks in the shade on our run to keep cool, which I’m sure the pup appreciated.

Look at that tongue!

Upon our return home, I made sure that we both re-hydrated and I jumped in the shower.

As soon as I got back downstairs, I wanted all of the cold things in our freezer and made a smoothie bowl the size of my head. Well… what do you know, I ended up eating all of it.

In my smoothie:

frozen spinach

frozen banana

frozen strawberries

frozen grapes

1 scoop Designer Whey vanilla protein powder

a generous amount of almond milk to get it going!

Summer 2014 Running + Workout Playlist II

I was going to wait until the Fall to roll out my next workout playlist, but I have received a handful of requests to share more of them.

Summer tends to feature a ton of hit music on the radio, so I guess I lucked out there. Below you will find a compilation of jams I have been loving and breaking a sweat to over the past couple of weeks.
