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