There has been a slight “crispness” in the air this week, a drop in early morning temperatures, a blanket of orange leaves covering the trails and the ever so faint scent of Autumn all around. I can’t remember a time when this has been more anticipated and welcomed! This, I believe, is yet another indicator of my age. As a young woman, I was ever so sad to see those ‘dog days of summer’ transition into Fall. The older I get, the more I welcome the relief and ease that comes with Autumn …and to be honest, my hot flashes are much more bearable during these cooler days!
It’s been an uneventful week, backing off from running in hopes to revive the ankle and just trying to maintain some sort of ‘calorie burn’ until I’m ‘back on my feet’.
Monday: This is how I feel every Monday begins for me…….
And this is me ….every.single.Monday!
Tuesday: 3 mile walk/jog to test out the ankle and …..still planking!
Wednesday: Strength training/chest and tri’s followed by 45 min. on the elliptical. Treated myself to a long hot soak in the tub with a little evening ‘toddy’. Calgon, take me away!
Thursday: The early morning temps have been so incredibly inviting that I could not resist having my breakfast outside on the deck. Strength training (back, bi’s and a little ab work), 3 mile easy run then back to the deck for some evening reading and wine sipping. I’m loving these early fall days!
Friday: Rest and day with the hubby …he surprised me and came home a day early from his business trip!!
Saturday: Early morning bike ride with the hubs and Chester boy …they ran, I rode; it’s how I’m rollin’ these days.
Sunday: Church, lunch and a quick nap before loading up the ‘Watermelon’ for a little paddlin’ and girl chatting with Tricia. It was a beautiful fall evening on the lake and a great way to round out the weekend!
…and with that we wrap up another Mississippi week filled with nothing special but everything to be thankful for!
How was your week? Has Autumn arrived in your neck of the woods? Anyone else still out on the water in October?
Finding “Fabulous” at Fifty, one workout at a time!
Linking up (a little late) with Tricia and Holly for their Weekly Wrap. Stop by and see what these incredible women are up to these days. There are a lot of marathons on the horizon with some of these ladies, so be sure to send them a word of encouragement!
