Fitness Friday...January 23rd Edition!

Woohoo! It's Friday! I didn't think this day was EVER going to get here! It's been a long week! The hubby has a huge deadline at work this week so he's been working late every night. I hate it when he works late. I don't get to see him for long. And a few of those nights he didn't get home until after I'd gone to bed. I miss him when he's not here and so do the boys.

Speaking of the hubby, he bought me a happy this past weekend! He surprised me because it's not often that he spends money and buys me gifts. But he did! He bought me this wireless Bluetooth headset! I LOVE it! It makes talking on the phone so much easier! My best friend Rhonda called me the other morning while she was driving to work. I was still getting ready for work so I used the headset to talk to her. I got dressed, ate breakfast, and made my lunch all while talking to her! It was so easy to have my hands free! So my hubby gets major points for this! Thanks babe!!!

But...that's not the reason I'm super excited that today is Friday. I'm excited because as soon as I get off work...I'm headed to one of my favorite cities ever...New Orleans!!! That's right's race weekend! I'm so excited about running the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon on Sunday!!! It's going to be a weekend of racing and having fun with my friends! I can't wait!

The only downfall is that Sawyer has a gymnastics meet this weekend and I have to miss it. :-( Since I'm a Rock 'n' Blogger for this race I can't miss it. But Andy has promised he will video all of Sawyer's events so I won't miss seeing him in action!

Speaking of the race...several of you have asked if there will be a tweet up!'re in luck! Meet some of your favorite Rock 'n' bloggers at Cafe Du Monde on Saturday at 10:30 AM! We will be answering questions about the race, taking selfies (of course), and just chit chatting! Come join the fun!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had a week of some great runs! My run streak is still going strong! Today is day 244!!!!

  • Friday- #plankaday 1:15, 1.36 mile run in 11:44 average pace 8:38

  • Sunday- 1.56 mile run in 13:17 average pace 8:32
  • Monday- 1.56 mile run in 13:13 average pace 8:29
  • Tuesday- #plankaday 1:06, 1.35 mile run in 11:40 average pace 8:38

  • Thursday- #plankaday 1:15, 1.56 mile run in 13:33 average pace 8:41

The runs this week were great! My legs were tired a few days after my 10 mile run but then they felt better. I'm hoping my legs feel strong and powerful for this weekend's race! No matter what I know I will have fun!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to see all my posts from New Orleans this weekend! :-)
