This weekend has been a treat! We ended up with stay at home day from school and work on Friday, thanks to almost 3 inches of snow that fell Thursday night. But by Saturday and Sunday, the sun made it’s way out finally after a dreary week and the temps yesterday reached near 60! Today, it’s been sunny, but a cold front is definitely on its way. What strange weather!
The only unfortunate thing with the snow is it ruined our plans to visit my sister in Raleigh. My sis and brother–in-law have a new baby, S, who is now 2 months old. My mom, H and I were planning to go there on Sunday and stay through Tuesday, but with the snow, Tuesday became our snow make-up day. I am still disappointed that we didn’t get a chance to go and stay for a few days to visit. I was looking forward to getting some baby time!
So with the change in plans, I seized the time off and the beautiful weather to get in some workouts. I thought by yesterday, I’d feel tired and worn out, but I haven’t felt better. I hope that my body is adapting to working out more. I’m trying to do something every day, even if it’s for 15 minutes. Thanks to those little daily workouts, I can get a quick little core workout on days I’m crunched for time.
Here’s a recap of my weekend:
- Friday: Daily Workout
- Saturday: I hit the Body Pump 84 launch and CXWorx at my gym with my friend, Christie. Body Pump 84 is amazing! The new bicep track with just the plates might be my new favorite. When using the bar all the time, I knew that my right arm was compensating for my weaker left arm. With the plates, both arms are on their own, having to do their own work. I look forward to seeing how I progress in my weights.
- Sunday: 10 (hilly, hilly) miles with Melanie J and Carole. The 3 of us took on a much hillier route than I originally thought. I should be banned from mapping any more routes! We ended up running it really well, but were all done by the time we finished. Katie, Nathan and Russell came out to run easy recovery miles, having ran long on Saturday. Daniel, Andrea and Kay came for breakfast! Pancakes and laughter with 9 of my friends totally made it all worth it! Later in the day, Katie and I hit the CXWorx class for another core workout.
- Today: A short circuit workout. I warmed up with a solo mile, then did Sunday’s daily workout, then headed out with H for another mile. Our family is running the Color Me Rad 5K in March and she and I are starting her training. She’s run several 5K’s before and trained at school with the GoFar program. This will be our 3rd family 5K and we are super excited about this fun race. We walked for 3 minutes and ran for 1 minute. She was doing great. With the last .25, she wanted to run the whole thing, so we went for it! She was so proud of herself. 🙂 I was too!.
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
