Fitness Friday...May 27th Edition!

So the first week of summer break for me was a success!!! I will admit that I got a little bored without my two boys here with me all week. But thankfully their last day of school was Thursday so it now feels like summer has officially begun!!!

Monday I did some shopping. And then I met my friend Paige at a new coffee shop in town. We enjoyed catching up just the two of us! And the coffee shop was super cute! I just had to take a picture of this drawing on the chalkboard wall because I knew my boys would love it!


Monday afternoon Hayden got off the bus in tears. His class had a painting party at school. He was so excited about it! But the people in charge gave the boys a "preschool type" painting. It had no details and they were only given 4 paint colors to use. Well my little artist did not like this at all! He was so upset! Luckily I had a few paints at home and let him "fix" his painting. His teacher had been absent that day and when she found this out she was so aggravated! His painting was NOT the painting the boys were supposed to do! 

Before!


After! 


Tuesday I was at the boys' school for most of the day. Hayden had his awards ceremony that morning. I got to sit with Kirstin, her cousin Emily, and her parents!


My Hayden got AB Honor Roll! And he got recognized again for receiving the Crown of Character Award!


I also went to the end of the year parties for both Sawyer and Hayden! We are thankful they both had such a great school year with great teachers!


On Wednesday my friend Lisa invited me over to her house to lounge in the pool! It was a very relaxing afternoon!!!



And when I came home my new Asics running shoes had arrived! Aren't they pretty??!! My two favorite colors...pink and blue!!!


Thursday was the last day of school for my boys!!! They've both grown so much this year!!!


They had differing opinions on the last day of school. Hayden was excited but Sawyer was sad because he said he was going to miss all his friends and his teacher! 


While they were at school I went to my friend Lora's house to watch "Fear of the Walking Dead." We don't have cable so I've been going to her house to watch the show. Yes I never thought I would like a show about zombies but I LOVE "The Walking Dead" and "Fear of the Walking Dead" is good too!

The boys only had a half day so when they got home we went out for lunch to one of our favorite sandwich places. 


Then we walked around Target! This is one of their favorite things to do! They love dreaming of Legos and all the toys! 



And of course Momma needed her Starbucks after that!!!


That evening we headed to the beach for "Smores on the Shore!" Andy had a work meeting so he couldn't go with us. But we went with my friend Keri and her kids. It was a lot of fun and the perfect way to start off the summer!








Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I woke up Monday morning with some bad lower back pain. I'm not sure what I did to it but it hurt all week. It finally started to feel a little better yesterday. But I still got in all my runs. I hit 2 years of my run streak on Sunday so I wasn't quitting!!! 


  • Friday- 2.54 mile run in 20:15 average pace 7:58
  • Sunday- 2.58 mile run in 20:17 average pace 7:52 AND TWO YEARS OF MY RUN STREAK!!!!!
  • Monday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.31 mile run in 18:22 average pace 7:56

  • Tuesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.15 mile run in 17:32 average pace 8:09

  • Wednesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.26 mile run in 18:28 average pace 8:11

  • Thursday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.26 mile run in 18:46 average pace 8:19


Saturday's long run was pretty tough this week. It was hot and I didn't eat enough carbs the day before. But I was thankful that hard run wasn't on my 2 year streakaversary! The rest of the week my runs were a little tough because my back was hurting. Hopefully the back will be back to 100% soon! The only thing I can think that happened is I must have slept wrong on it. I remember when I woke up Monday morning that my back felt weird. Then it starting hurting worse as the day went on. It started feeling better yesterday so hopefully it will continue to get better. 

I'm hoping to do a long run of at least 6 miles this weekend but it will all depend on how my back feels. If it's still a little sore then I may not do a long run this weekend. That's the joy of not training for anything right now. I can not stress about not doing a long run. 

I'm super excited that I made it to 2 years of my running streak though! I'm so blessed that God has given me good health and minimal injuries so that I can accomplish this! I'm hoping to keep streaking as long as I can! I love it so much! 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and happy Memorial Day!!!

QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week?
