I love summer! Seriously, it is off to such an amazing start, and it’s only been a week! I started celebrating the weekend right after work on Friday, where I headed over to my cousin Lindze’s, to hang out with her and Lucas, her 13 month old munchkin.
It was nice to hang out with Lindze and chat about everything, and then get some quality time with the little man. Seriously, the cutest little ham ever.
I didn’t end up getting home until 10:30ish, so it was a tiring day indeed!
I was able to sleep in until 8:30, before heading out for a quick 15 minute walk outside. It was enough to wake my body up, before heading to CrossFit for the 10 am Competitor’s class. Around 11:30, I left the box, went home to shower, and then headed to my cousin’s to spend the day working on FitGirl Clothing stuff. Our marketing guy came over for an hour and a half to go over some things we have him lined up to do. The rest of the time with Jenn, we discussed marketing initiatives, before retiring to the pool for a bit to cool off.I didn’t get home until 6:15ish, and by then I was pretty hungry. I had a quick bite before going for a neighborhood walk with my Mom and Kipper. The rest of my night was spent just laying on the couch and finally relaxing!
Up and at ’em at 7:30! I completed several dynamic stretches and warm-ups before heading outside for a hot and sweaty 2 mile walk and 3 mile run. These are my favorite types of workouts. I can walk when I want to, and run when I want to. At one point, my body pretty much told me it was done running, and it was nice to just be able to walk the remaining part of my workout.
I use my Garmin to make sure that I have negative splits and to track my miles, but other than that, I don’t stress over the time each mile is, as long as I don’t start out too fast. I feel like this has given me a healthier relationship with running. Just running to feel good and not to reach a certain time or mileage.
To have covered 5 miles and to be showered with my hair done by 9:30 is pretty awesome. I spent the remaining part of my morning doing a little meal prep, before it was time to head to my cousin’s graduation party.
After the party, it was time to explore the Nashua River Rail Trail and sweat our faces off in the 90 degree humidity. First ice cream of the summer!
All in all, what a beautiful & fun weekend.
