Fitness Friday 7/20

A recap of this week’s efforts to maintain a strong, healthy body.


Saturday: Woke up super early and dragged my loving husband all the way out to Mound for the Spirit of the Lakes 10k run – my first ever 10k!  I was pretty nervous but it actually went very well, despite lots of hills.

I hadn’t trained for the 10k, so my legs were completely wiped out afterwards. I decided to take Sunday off from exercise. I did work in the evening, so I got some walking in.

Did my upper body workout for the week…P90x shoulders & arms – one of my faves!

Tuesday: 13-hour workday. Sigh….

Somehow I convinced Mike to run the Torchlight 5k with me! This event was HUGE (we’re talking thousands of runners) and included a party afterwards. What a fun way to spend a Wednesday night.

Thursday: Biked to the gym (4.1 miles, 19 min) with the intention of swimming. Unfortunately, I neglected to look at the class schedule and the Aquafit class had just started when I got there. hmph. Not my day. I was limited on options since I was wearing my clip-in bike shoes, so I decided to head over to the mats. Knocked out 100 pushups, some ab exercises, planks, and weighted leg lifts, then biked back home (4.1 miles, 19 min).
