Fitness Friday #27

I have to admit despite the fact that I haven’t been sleeping much this week (it’s been INSANELY hot), I’m feeling great and super excited for the next 4 months, but specially the next month and a half!

I got to visit my ish-cousin this week (don’t make me try to explain, it’s complicated so just go with it), his wife and their baby! We didn’t get to spend a ton of time with them unfortunately but even just grabbing breakfast and a short hike was well worth the detour. I can also hardly believe their baby is almost 1! I’m starting to think I thought time stopped everywhere else once I hit the road.

We’ll be spending the 4th somewhere in Montana (exact location and plans are TBD) but I’m excited for a hopefully relaxing holiday. From there, we’ll make our way to North Dakota, back to Minnesota for 2 more events and then back home for a few days. I’m excited to see friends and family but I also know it’s going to be a major whirlwind weekend before flying to LA.

Anyway, I had such a great week when it came to my workouts. My running has kind of gone non-existent again and while I was blaming my shoes for the pain, I learned this past week that my ankle mobility right now needs some major work, hence the shin pain. I’ve been trying to work on that more this past week and hope by next week, I’ll be in a better place to pick up my running again (and that it will be cooler…).

Getting to spend so much time in the box this week has just fed my soul and I think is a big reason why I’ve been feeling so good. My workouts outside the box are still good but definitely take a bit more motivation to make happen.

Between increased stress, decreased motivation and 4 days straight of driving through Canada, my workouts aren’t where I would have liked them to be this week. With that said, I still got in a couple of really great, sweat-dripping workouts.

On top of that, I also made what I called “Road Trip Stop WODs” and would complete one round when we would stop whether that be at a rest stop or to fill up on gas. The goal was to do it every time but depending on the situation (extra crazy gas station, etc) it didn’t always happen. Regardless, I got in a few rounds each day and it made me feel better about sitting on my butt about 12 hours a day as we drove.

I have a lot of events coming up this next couple weeks for 50 States and I’m hoping it helps keep my motivation to workout up so when our event calendar slows down through the last half of July and early August (hello CrossFit Games and Hawaii!!) I’ll still be motivated to get some workouts done on my own.
