Travel, Tempo, and Fun

Hello Wednesday….
I am traveling this week, and one of the perks is I got to see Miss J while enroute…Isn’t that just the best when travel plans, and friends can be mixed and you get to see someone while traveling. I LOVE it, and J is/ was the best host. We both had some work to get done once I arrived, so we worked, and then enjoyed a fantastic lunch here.

It was so so yummy! I went with the enchilada’s a cheese one and a chicken one- we started of course with chip, and they had 3 different dips for them, we also got my favorite- queso and guac!!! So good! After lunch we took this lovey for a walk, I loved how we are downtown but it still has lots of green areas and parks.
June 17 1After our walk we headed to a gym my friend loves to try a Curved Treadmill class. If you have never run on a Curve treadmill- there is no motor so to speed up you run further forward on the belt, to slow down you run further back, it takes a little getting used to, but it really helps you focus on balance, form, and speed you yourself can generate, I love it. The class ran in 4 cycles, tread’s, floor, tread’s, floor ( or vice versa) and each cycle was 9 min’s, with 2 mins break. It flew by and I love the teachers style, he focused on a lot of independent leg – which as a runner I LOVE!!! If your ever in Dallas, check out this class. I loved it! This photo makes the teacher look like it’s an 80s workout video- I swear he was not ha, and his music was super good and made you want to sweat.

Then it was off to another meal- I seriously could get used to eating all this yummy food. Everything I have had was amazing! Our next stop was dinner here. It was Epic. We got a flat bread, a tempura broccoli, asparagus, and the worlds best Mac and Cheese.
June 17 2They “theme” of the menu was small plates but we 110% did not leave hungry it was so good. The flat bread was fig and goat chesse and just amazing! I need to make it at home ASAP! Of course the company was the best part of the day/ night.
June 17 3  Tonight I am over the moon excited to try this place. It is a little road side “shack” that serves an amazing menu of taco’s. Look how adorable this place looks!

When you travel do you try and visit friends?
Do you go to the gym, explore outside, or take classes to stay healthy when you travel?

Also a fun Thursday tip if you live in Boston and are looking for a fun girls night, date night, or just love s’mores…check out Aragosta Bar and Bistro. The fire pits are open all winter, and they give you blankets so you stay warm, and they have heat lamps, in the summer it’s on the water and just stunning! We went last night, and had a blast! The food from flat-breads to salad’s to soups is amazing! It started to rain, so the waiter made our s’mores for us, but they were still amazing ( we moved inside to eat when the rain came).

Do you like s’mores?
Are you ready for running in shorts?
What is a fun weekend plan you have?
What’s your favorite Cardio exercise?

Any good books your reading? I just started the Portrait of my Father and really like the story line of the family.
