Fitness Friday #31

Aloha from Hawaii! 

IMG_3418

I’m sunburnt and already exhausted but having a blast and enjoying every moment. I’m excited for my family to come and for them to get to enjoy it with us.

And while I’d like to think some beach WODs may happen at some point, we’ll see how much that actually happens…ha! But if I am jumping and swimming around in the water, that counts right? Especially when I realize I swam too far and can’t touch my feet so I have to immediately turn back around and swim to a “safer” spot. (Note: I’m not a very confident swimmer so it’s important for me to stay within water levels that my feet can touch.) 😉

Anyway, let’s get to the workouts that I had this week because there were a few…

While my workouts may not be overly programmed this week, there have still been some great workouts and the “active” rest of walking, carrying luggage (it’s a workout!) and jumping around in the water has just felt amazing. It just goes to show that our training is meant to go in phases, including times of higher intensity and times of more rest, all dependent on how our own bodies are feeling.

Now, don’t forget to link up your week of workouts or fitness posts below and check out everyone else’s as well. There’s some big things coming to Fitness Friday so let’s get on it!

Fitness Friday #30

It hasn’t been my most active week, I’m just going to start out saying that. Quite honestly, I’m feeling it too…mentally and physically. At the same time, I haven’t had much of an appetite this week (thank you stress) so I know I’m not eating enough to fuel my usual activity level so I’m taking this week a bit easier and not getting hard on myself for it.

But with that said, I’ve also had some really good workouts this week. With an event on Tuesday where the workout was a butt kicker and was followed by some of the girls asking if I wanted to do a little “accessory work” with them after. It doesn’t take much to convince me to workout so I joined in and it was tough! It also made me feel better after a few days of not getting in a workout or run.
