The Weekend in Photos: January 9-11 – Night Running, Barre3 UTC and Cowles Mountain

I’m excited to be sharing my weekend in photos through the Weekend Update Link-Up with Running ‘n’ Reading!

It was my first full week back at work since mid-December, and it was a stressful one. There was so much to get caught up on and I had my annual review (which went really well!), so I was ready for the weekend when it rolled around.

My first run in awhile, but I had a nice 4-mile night run with Maeby. We ran down to the canyon by our house and back up a gnarly hill, but it was a perfect way to wrap up a crazy work week.

Took a barre class in the morning, as part of the Barre3 challenge I’m currently taking, and then met up with my friend Addi (a friend from college who lives out here now) for a hike at Cowles Mountain with Maeby. I’ve hiked this before when my friend Caitlin came to visit, but hadn’t done it since. Saturday afternoon was in the 60s and sunny – basically, it was the perfect day to get out and moving.

Another morning class at Barre3. After Saturday’s hike, it was pretty tough, but as always, a great workout.

Unfortunately, it rained all day Sunday, so I spent the afternoon indoors. After running errands and grabbing breakfast with Adam, my friend (who just got a dog) came by for some dog playtime and a little bit of training.

The rest of the day was spent reading and taking it easy…which, let’s be honest, rainy days are perfect for.

And with that, I’m ready for another crazy work week. It’s already Tuesday, meaning we’re not too far away from the weekend!


How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

  1. Hi, Gloria! So delighted to see that you’ve linked up with the blog this week; hope we’ll “see” you again, and please make sure to link back to the blog in your post. These pictures are absolutely fantastic, and Maeby is precious. I have really got to get into a barre class; everyone is doing it, and I feel so left out – ha! 🙂 I’m glad you were able to get some outside time in before the weather turned ugly; sounds like a nice weekend. Thanks again and I hope your week is going well!


    1. Thank you Tara! I do photo recaps of my weekend often so I was excited to find your link up. I’d definitely give barre a try – it’s a killer workout and I can definitely see some changes happening in my arms, abs and lower body. Thanks for hosting the link up and have a great rest of your week!


  2. Ahh, that picture of your hike with Maeby is so cute. :] Slightly reminescent of longcat! 😛

    I know it’s only Tuesday, but it’s been a longgg day. I’m kinda ready for the weekend so I can hopefully play catchup (tis a neverending process 😛 ).


    1. Haha, yes, she has a very long body when she’s standing on two legs! And sorry you’ve had a long day but here’s to hoping the rest of your week flies by!
