Motivation Monday

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend, and hope everyone had better weather than we did here in east Tennessee. Other than a little tease we had last Monday, it’s hot as all get out, and humid, and rainy, and just generally unpleasant. Thankfully the mornings are somewhat bearable and dry, but I ran a 5K on Saturday morning and still looked like I had jumped in a pool at 8 a.m. 24 days till fall, but who’s counting, right?

Stats from the week, and some pics below…

Monday 8/8: There was a nice 10 degree drop in temps today so you better believe I headed outside! 65 minute walk along the river, and it was glorious!

Tuesday 8/9: 10 minutes on the treadmill (5.8 mph) followed by a 30 minute Step class and 15 minutes of core work

Wednesday 8/10: 45 minute Power Yoga class and then walked outside for about 15 minutes

Thursday 8/11: Took a 60 minute Orangetheory Fitness class

Friday 8/12: 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes of upper body strength training and some core exercises

Saturday 8/13: Ran a 5K that morning (pushing AW in the stroller) and did a sunset stand-up paddleboard session with Matt that night

Sunday 8/14: Had no motivation today, BUT got my butt off the couch that evening and walked around the neighborhood for 35 minutes

Like I mentioned above, I ran in a 5K with some friends on Saturday morning. we pushed our kiddos in the strollers and man, it was a workout. I finished in 32 minutes and ran the whole time, so I was pretty pleased. Asher Wade enjoyed himself until we got to the finish line. All the people cheering and the loud music freaked him out a little. Then someone handed him a Moon Pie and all was right in the world again:-)

Mother runners!


Post race…sweaty, but happy with our Moon Pie

For date night on Saturday Matt and I decided to mix it up a little and headed out for a stand-up paddleboard session at sunset. A storm had passed through a couple hours prior, and it was gorgeous out. So thankful to live in such a beautiful city, and to have access to all these great outdoor activities.
