Fitness Friday...June 5th Edition!

Happy Friday y'all! I hope you had a great week! We did! We are enjoying our summer immensely!

On Monday the boys went swimming at Grandma's! We tried the community pool for the first time and it was super nice! The boys had a blast!

On Tuesday we met my friend Jenny and her son Sawyer at the movies to watch "Tomorrowland!" It was a really good movie! The boys were all glued to their seats the entire time! After the movie we went to...wait for it...Starbucks!!! Yeah if Jenny and I are together there will always be Starbucks involved ;-)

Wednesday was National Running Day! I celebrated by running of course! :-) It was also grocery shopping day. The boys hate it...and so do I! But it has to be done. So afterwards I took them to the park. They played while I drank coffee and enjoyed my new Runner's World magazine! :-)

After the park we got some fro-yo!

Thursday Andy was off work! We had a fun day! We went out to lunch. Then we came home and played a game of Monopoly (that lasted FOREVER)! Fun times! Unfortunately (from all my trips to jail) I ended up bankrupt and lost everything! :-/

During one of our breaks from the game we headed to Starbucks! Sawyer wanted to use his own money and buy himself a frappuccino! :-)

This week I also added in a little strength training. I found this workout on Pinterest and have been doing it every day! I have continued to do my planks like always...I couldn't imagine going back to 20 seconds. But hopefully by the end of the month I will be at a 5 minute plank like it says. And let me tell you...squats make my legs very very sore lol! And I've discovered that I have no upper body strength! How am I going to do 50 push-ups on day 30??? We will see lol!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! My runs went great this week! I even ran a 5K on National Running Day! I normally just stick to 1-2 milers during the week for my streak. But it felt good to run a 5K!

  • Friday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.16 mile run in 17:53 average pace 8:17

  • Sunday- 2.26 mile run in 18:51 average pace 8:21
  • Monday- #plankaday 2:06, 1.70 mile run in 14:39 average pace 8:38, 50 squats, 5 push-ups, 25 crunches

  • Tuesday- #plankaday 2:00, 1.77 mile run in 14:54 average pace 8:25, 55 squats, 5 push-ups, 30 crunches

  • Wednesday- #plankaday 2:05, 3.12 mile run in 26:20 average pace 8:27, 60 squats, 6 push-ups, 35 crunches

  • Thursday- #plankaday 2:15, 2.06 mile run in 17:39 average pace 8:33, 6 push-ups

So lots of running this week! But it felt great! And I'm enjoying the strength training although I've been sore! I know that challenge is a piece of cake for a lot of you but I have to take baby steps! ;-)

This weekend I have a 6 mile run on the schedule. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!!!

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