Workouts Lately

Now that my life has settled some, I can give a longer update. One of my biggest problems is my mind is bigger than the time of day.  Basically, I have all these grand schemes but I always run out of time because I over schedule myself. One thing I always try to find time for is a workout each day because I go crazy without one. So during the week, I do a short workout right when I wake up.  They usually last about 10 minutes, maybe shorter, maybe longer. I switch it up each day.  Some of them include Fabletics, Emily Skye, and Blogilates. I find working out right when I wake up gives me some energy through the day. Otherwise I workout at night expect on the weekends.  Here is a schedule I have found for me that works:

Sunday- Recovery 3 mile run, yoga (I like Yoga with Adrienne on youtube)

Monday- Crossfit

Tuesday- Sprint work or sometimes just a 3 miler depending on my schedule

Wednesday- Crossfit

Thursday- 3 mile run with friends

Saturday- Long run

Changes for the summer though include a Body Pump class on Fridays and a run after crossfit on Wednesdays.  Since it is summer, I also walk my dog during the mornings and take my son on walks with friends.

My son is in the stroller on Thursdays and Sundays.  On Saturdays I try to get finished with my run by 9 so my husband can go to crossfit.  He also goes on Tuesdays/Thursday while I watch my son.  We can never go together.

Some other things I have done the past months:

Crossfit related:

I completed in the Open but the scaled division.  I did a lot better than I thought and realized I can be a lot stronger than I thought.  I also did the Murph over Memorial Day.  For those who do not know, the Murph is 1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats and then another mile run.  I broke up the workout by 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups and 15 squats 20 times.  I did it a lot faster than I thought I could.  I used a band for pull-ups and went on my knee for push-ups. I also have a new favorite pair of crossfit shorts called Fleos.  They are short, which worried me, but they are really comfy and I can finally squat without restriction and they keep me covered. You can find them here

Running related: 

I completed a Half Marathon in April with my best friend.  We did it more relaxed since it was pretty warm.  We also didn’t train for it.  I did though, place 1st in age group at a small local 5k.  I was not expecting it because I did it as a catch up on girl talk run with my friend as we were both under the weather. I did sign up for Houston Marathon again so we will see how training goes this year.

Just a note, I do not get paid for anything I recommend, like the shorts, nor do I get free stuff.  I just wanted to talk about it.

Posts coming up soon, another Kidbox review, Camping with toddler tips, and some more travel blogs once I actually travel.
