My mom got in to town on Wednesday, and we'd been spending lots of time together on the beach, talking, and eating!
Mom's flight home was around 11, so we spent the morning hanging out before dropping her off. We had a great time with her :) Afterward, Joe and I just kind of hung around the house before leaving for Tampa in the late afternoon. I had a concert to go to, so Joe decided to go to the Tampa Bay Rays baseball game while I was at the show. Him dropping me off/picking me up wound up working perfectly, since getting out of the parking lot afterward would have taken so, so long!
Anyway, the concert! Back in January, I told you how excited I was for MONUMENTOUR featuring Fall Out Boy and Paramore. Both bands have been my favorites for about 10 years now, so seeing them together was going to be EPIC!
The time finally came Saturday, so I headed to the amphitheater at the fairgrounds in Tampa for the show. I LOVE going to concerts at these types of venues in the summer, since they're open-air and a great way to spend more time outside. Even though it was insanely hot on Saturday night, I really enjoyed seeing this show at an amphitheater!

After only 4 hours of sleep, we got up and met up with some of Joe's friends to go Scalloping!

After two pretty long days of summer fun, we got home late on Sunday night and just crashed. It was a GREAT weekend though, so we were happily exhausted :)
ZOOMA Chicago Half Marathon Training Week 9
This week's training was a bit unconventional, but I did get workouts in!
Monday-15 minute run/incline walk + BodyPump
Wednesday-2 mile walk with Mom, Joe and Tequila
Thursday-2 mile walk with Mom, Joe and Tequila
Friday-2 mile walk with Mom, Joe and Tequila
Saturday-rest day/dancing at the concert
Sunday-Lots of swimming while scalloping
Sometimes, workouts are best done when they aren't specially workouts! I really did get in some good exercise that wasn't just running.
This week is going to be a light running week/tapering. I do have some strength workouts and yoga planned, but with the half marathon on Saturday, I want to keep my legs fresh.
Oh man, this wound up being a long post! If you stayed with me the whole time, you deserve a prize :) I just had so much fun this weekend!! I hope you had a great weekend, too
Question for you: Have you been to any concerts this summer? What is your favorite summer time activity?
