Sheesh! Classic Monday morning-files stacked up, patients waiting, a blog post to write and NO INTERNET! So the afternoon will be spent catching up on the missed work from the morning. But first I’ll relive to weekend a little because it was a great one!
Our group of Virginians/West Virginians crested at 16 people for an awesome weekend of camping, rafting, and hiking. It felt like the start of summer!
Thanks to everyone who enthusiastically participated in Comment Commit last Friday! It’s so inspiring to read about all of your activity!
I admit, I didn’t make it out for my planned run yesterday. We got home at around 4pm grubby and wiped out but I did cover at least 6 miles between three different walks.
This weeks plan is 3 strength sessions, 5 yoga practices, 4 runs, and 2 Pilates workouts. Today I will kick it off with strength and yoga. What’s your plan?
Time to play catch-up!
My goals for this week are to complete my plank challenge, walk, bike or use the elliptical three times a week, yoga two days a week, arm exercises three times this week and hopefully go out swing dancing on Saturday!
Awesome-enjoy! Swing dancing sounds like a blast, do you go regularly?
This will be my first time going. I have a friend that goes regularly and I heard there will be a live band ^_^
It looks like you had an awesome weekend!
Since I have a foot injury and I’m currently in a boot, I can only do pool workouts right now (yuck!). So for the last 3 weeks I have been going to the pool M-F for a mix of swimming and water jogging. My plan is to continue doing this until I get my boot off! Oh and an upper body core workout MWF. Committing on here will help because I’m losing motivation!
Good luck with your workouts this week!
I have the hardest time motivating to swim/do water workouts, I’ve just never been a big water person. I really want to do a triathlon and training for the swim would be the biggest challenge for me. On that note, best wishes for great workouts in the pool!
I really want to do a triathlon too! I’m hoping if my foot heals soon I can do one late summer. I might as well put this swimming fitness I have built up to good use 🙂
It’s true, swimming is usually the weakest link for people but you could start training with a solid foundation. How long do you think it will be before you can start running a little?
This week I will do 3 runs, 3 walks/bike and 5 days of strength/core/yoga. I’m trying to do some strength in the afternoons while my boys are playing video games. It gives a little extra energy. I got my garden planted this weekend, so now I have some more energy to put into running and walking.
My garden has provided me with motivation to move a little more in the evenings, there’s always plenty of weeding and watering to be done! That sounds like a great workout plan-enjoy!
What a stellar weekend! That’s my kind of group & fun.
My plan is 3 runs, 3 swims, 3 1-hour+ bike rides throughout the week; 1 Bikram yoga mid-week & 2 or 3 strength training fit in on running days. I would also like to incorporate 1 or 2 sessions of Pilates (this helps so much with climbing & my overall form/posture!). I think I would like to fit in some mild yoga/stretching in the evenings. We are bouldering on Saturday, so hopefully I can touch rock sometime during the week as well.
Today is strength training (weights:chest) & a run with Eisley.
Enjoy your workouts this week!
It was one of THOSE mornings. I was not going to get up when my alarm went off. I was determined. I got up and drank a cup of hot green tea. I crawled back into bed. I was not going to ride my bike. I didn’t feel like it. It doesn’t make any difference anyway so why should I bother. I got up and rode for twenty minutes anyway. Then I did a series of upper body stretches. I ate my standard healthy breakfast. My mood began to improve. I felt better. The rest of the day has been good. I’m glad I did the things I know I needed to do because doing them does help. Thanks for listening.
looks liek an awesome weekend!! I want to try a spring dam release down there! We are going again this fall and I can’t wait.
