Fitness Friday...July 1st Edition!

Oh my goodness is it already July?? This summer is going by way too fast!

This week was all about getting Hayden ready to leave for Boy Scout summer camp tomorrow. We had to do lots of shopping for last minute things that he needed as well as take him to the doctor for a physical. Poor guy got to the doctor and they wanted to go ahead and give him the tetanus shot that he would need of 6th grade. I felt so bad he was going to have to get a shot! But he took it like a champ and didn't cry or even tear up! Big boy!


One of our purchases that he was the most excited about was a pair of hiking boots! He loves that they are blue instead of the normal brown or tan!


He also has to have a rain suit. Do you know how hard it was to find a rain suit in his size? Thank goodness for Bass Pro Shop! 


The morning weather this week wasn't sizzling hot so I was able to sit on my back porch and drink my coffee and read! One morning I found this little guy crawling around! He was a HUGE snail and so cute!!! But I scared him with my pictures and he hid in his shell for a few minutes!



I finished the book "All the Light We Cannot See" this week and it was really good!


Then I started a book that my sister recommended to me called "The Bronze Horseman." Y'all!!! I can't put this one down! It is soooo good!!! And it's part of a trilogy which makes me so excited!!!


The MOST exciting thing that happened this week....we joined the gym!!! We joined our local YMCA which is about half a mile from our house! I am so excited!!! My hubby is excited too because working out is something we can do together! We've already gone twice and had such a great time!


Amidst all of the summer camp preparations we also got to hang out with our friends the Brendels some this week too. Most days this week had some rain so a lot of the plans we made were rained out. The kids enjoyed playing at each other houses and Kirstin and I enjoyed lots of coffee!!! 


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I missed telling you all about my runs last week since I was at my sister's house but I assure you I ran all week there! And this week I've kept up my streak as well!


  • Friday- 2.62 mile run in 21:07 average pace 8:04, Strength training: legs

  • Sunday- 2.52 mile run in 20:17 average pace 8:03
  • Monday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.51 mile run in 20:07 average pace 8:01, Strength training: arms

  • Tuesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.26 mile run in 18:15 average pace 8:04

  • Wednesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.56 mile run in 20:26 average pace 8:00

  • Thursday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.57 mile run in 20:28 average pace 7:58, Strength training: legs


So that was my week! All of my runs went great this week! And I LOVED all my workouts at the gym! I'm hoping to get in 2-3 strength training workouts each week. This runner wants to get STRONG! ;-)

This weekend I am going to try to run a 6 mile long run. Hopefully I can slow down some and have a great run!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a great 4th of July!!! 

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