Happy Monday friends!Â
I got back late last night from Amagansett, and I am HAPPY. ODing on sunshine and fun times with good friends is so good for your soul. And I had lots of both of those this weekend.
While these weekends with friends are typically wine-filled affairs, I always make sure to get in at least some workouts. We drove out Thursday night, and my master plan for this weekend was to get in my long run on Friday morning. However, by the end of the day Thursday, my low back was in such excruciating pain that just bending over to get my laptop sleeve at work hurt like all hell.Â
My friend Meg is a physical therapist, so I asked her what she thought was going on with my back. She said from everything I described, it sounded like bulging disks, and I should take some rest and definitely not run 12 miles. I was super bummed to not get in a pretty long run out there, but I also didnâ€™t want to get hurt any further.
So Friday I took a full rest day (it even hurt walking .25 miles down the beach to grab lunch, so, right decision), but Saturday, weâ€™d planned to go to Well + Goodâ€™s Surfside Salutations at Surf Lodge.
Hello Montauk, why do you have to be so ugly?
Heather Lilleston was the instructor, and she was FREAKING HILARIOUS. Iâ€™d never heard of her before, but when I Instagrammed the above pic, a bunch of people commented how much they loved her. She founded Yoga for Bad People, a company that runs funÂ yoga retreats.
The class itself was a pretty easy flow, other than it was REALLY hot and we were directly under the sun.
After the class, there was A BRAID BAR and all kinds of other fun stuff going on.
Hello braid crown!
C9 was one of the sponsors, and we all got free sports bras, which was a pretty sweet gift. We also got swag bags with a bunch of stuff, including a sea salt surf spray for your hair. Hello, beach waves!
While it was certainly hard to get up on a Saturday morning after late Friday nights, it was so worth it and it felt awesome to go back to the beach having already gotten our workout in for the day.
If you could do any traditionally-indoors workout outside, what would it be and where?
