Aloha from Hawaii!
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!
