Happy Sunday and Happy Independence Week! I do hope everyone took a moment from their fireworks, barbeques and boating to reflect on the immeasurable privilege it is to live in this great nation! #proudtobeanAmerican
It’s been a super hot week down here in the deep south with temps reaching into the 90’s every day and the sunshine has been plentiful! Most of my workouts have been indoors, under the reprieve of an air conditioner …and I’m really fine with that. Actually, I’m just really thankful for the person who invented the air conditioner as I would have surely not survived living in Mississippi before they existed! I completed my June Challenge having enjoyed the push-up portion so much that I’m continuing it into July, scaling back the numbers though. Here’s how my week of workouts looked:
- Monday: 30 min. Spinning / Strength Training (total body) / 50 push ups
- Tuesday: 4 mile run for the 4th of July (with Major Hubs and Chester boy)
- Wednesday: Rest
- Thursday: Spin class / 2 mile run / 50 push ups
- Friday: 4 mile treadmill run / Legs / 50 push ups
- Saturday: 22 mile bike ride / 50 push ups
While I always prefer being outdoors, the one advantage of being forced to hit the gym is that it’s much easier to get those strength training sessions in that we runners love to put off! I have no races in my near future but still planning on some type of cycling ride/event. I’ve actually downloaded a training schedule for a century ride and will start following it in the next week or two. Speaking of cycling …if you missed my Friday Five 2.0 post, check it out here!
We kept our 4th of July very low-key with yard work, grilling and relaxing. Major Hubs is gearing up for three weeks of National Guard training so he
wanted needed some down time before Uncle Sam calls! I’ll leave you with a few pictures from our day …
