Fitness Friday #24 (From ALASKA!)

Happy Fitness Friday from Alaska!


After 4 very long days of driving we made it to Wasilla, AK Tuesday afternoon. I was happy to finally have some time to play catch up after days of no work, no service (despite getting a small data plan), and just non-stop driving. There is so much to do but at the same time, it feels so nice to finally be getting back in the swing of things.


Driving ALL day made it hard to get in a workout, especially given some of the areas we parked for the night. Because of this I didn’t really get a workout in those days but since I’m doing this June Burpee Challenge, I would get in a few of my burpees for the day each time we would stop. This not only helped break them up a bit but also helped keep my body from getting too stiff during the drive.
