Weekly Workouts

Another Friday has come and gone. And as I type this on a Thursday afternoon, it’s hard to believe it’s my second to last Thursday before we leave for an entire year. It’s really quite crazy! It’s been a crazy week and I’ve been doing my best to stay relaxed, centered and not punch anyone in the face. In fact, trying not to punch people has become quite the inside joke with Sam and I the past couple weeks. We wouldn’t actually do it, but sometimes it’s fun to pretend. ;)


Okay, okay so I digress…I’m just trying to lighten things up around here. That’s all. But I get it, it’s a Friday which means I’ve got some workouts to share!

I took an extra rest day this week and it was needed. There were some awesome WODs on Wednesday and Thursday at CrossFit but I knew my body just needed a short run and rest, especially since Thursday was the 50 States burpee event!

Weekly Workouts

Another Friday is upon us and as usual, I can hardly believe it! The days are passing by so quickly and while I’m crossing things off my to-do list as fast as possible, I’m also adding more just as quickly. We’re in the final couple weeks and trying to get all of the puzzle pieces in place. I’m still working part-time but thankfully Sam is no longer at her job and able to run around for us when I’m working.

But I must also admit being in the home stretch means there’s also been a lot of stress and near anxiety attacks at times. This whole thing is pushing me outside my comfort zone which is great but as such, I’m trying to get back into running to help my stress. After choosing to defer from the marathon a couple months ago, I let my running fall to the wayside. Honestly, I did it on purpose because I knew I needed it mentally and physically but now I’m feeling ready to bring it back. Not where I need to run 8+ miles every week, but where I’m running a few miles a few days a week in addition to CrossFit. So far this week, so good!
