Fitness Friday...November 11th Edition!

Happy Friday y'all! And Happy Veteran's Day! I am so thankful for all those who serve or have served in our military! Thank you for keeping our country safe and free! God Bless the USA!

It's been a busy week! And I've been fighting a cold all week so that's been no fun! :-( My voice starting going on Wednesday. It's not cool to not be able to talk much y'all!!!

This week was also election day. I hope you voted! Our polls were the busiest I have ever seen them! I'm not going to talk politics on here but just want to say that I am praying for our country and the new president elect. It doesn't matter if I did or didn't vote for him...what matters is that he will now be the president of our country and I plan to pray for him like the Bible says we should do.

On Tuesday my friend Lora subbed at my school! We got to teach together and it was so fun! Then we went and voted together as well!


Tuesday nights are always super busy in our house. Sawyer has gymnastics that night and Hayden has Boy Scout meetings on Tuesday nights. I was super proud of Hayden when he got home from his meeting because he earned his Scout rank! He's been working so hard and was the first in his first year patrol to earn it! So proud of him! 


I also got lots of Archie time this week! He LOVES to find me and "sit" in my lap lol! He's so big but doesn't realize it lol! 


He's doing really well in his obedience training class! He only has 2 more weeks left! I'm hoping he passes the test!!! We've definitely seen some good changes in him since beginning the class! 

Funny story...we were at the dog park this past weekend and he was playing so sweetly with the other dogs. Then he went up to this lady and just sat down in front of her and stared at her. I said something to him about her not having any treats for him and she corrected me and said that actually she had some in her back pocket!!! She made him lay down first and then gave him one! But I thought it was so smart of him to do that lol! 

As y'all know from previous posts...I am super addicted to Lularoe clothing! I sported several Lularoe pieces this week including my newest Randy shirt!


And my newest pair of leggings! Aren't those polka dots so fun??!! 


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I did not make my goal of 2 strength training classes this week. :-( As I said above, I've been fighting a cold all week and the hubby told me my body needed some rest. I definitely wasn't going to NOT run so I chose to skip a day of weight training instead. 

On Saturday I ran a local 10K race and PRed AND placed 3rd in my age group!!!! Be sure to read my recap of the race

I also hit day 900 of my run streak this week!!!!!!!! It happened on Tuesday which was also election day so I will always remember it lol! 


  • Friday- 2.6 mile run in 21:00 average pace 8:00
  • Sunday- 2.3 mile run in 19:37 average pace 8:24
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 21:06 average pace 8:03, Strength Training: BodyPump

  • Tuesday- 2.6 mile run in 20:53 average pace 7:58 and day 900!!!!!!!!
  • Wednesday- 2.6 mile run in 20:54 average pace 7:56
  • Thursday- 2.6 mile run in 21:01 average pace 8:00

So it was a great week of running with the 10K PR, age group win, and hitting day 900 of my run streak!!!! 

This weekend I am running another race....the Battleship 12K! I ran it last year and it was such a fun race! It honors our veterans! If you are in the Mobile area and want to run it you can save 15% off with the code RRGIRL! 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
