Now that Mike has a summer job, Sadie is all by her lonesome all day. She’s caught onto the new routine and now she makes her sad face and doesn’t leave my side all morning. Such is the life of a needy, Velcro dog.
Speaking of new routines...
I’ve been working on my chin-ups every day! The first day we installed the bar, I surprised myself and did one full chin-up! HOLLA! I’m stronger than I think! Then Mike did 3 in a row NBD, but I will have my revenge when I can do 10 by July. I’ve been at it for a week now and I can already see improvements and progress. Practice, practice, practice!
Backbend progress has been less than stellar. That could be because I haven’t worked on it yet – I’ve been too jazzed about the chin-ups ;) I’m heading down the yoga studio by my work today to get a membership so I can start going once a week over lunch. A few months ago when I was doing yoga regularly over lunch, I saw major improvements in my backbend (along with everything else). I hope that by going once a week to a studio and then doing a regular practice at home, I can meet and crush my Under Armour goal.
-Slo-pitch season is here!
We had our first games on Sunday and it was so much fun! The season was delayed a few weeks because of flooding/snow still being here (only in Saskatchewan), so we had a double header. My right arm was a bit sore the next morning. Time to get in the swing of things!
-It’s crunch time for my canfitpro PT exam!
My brain absorbs info better when I have Cougar Town on in the background....
I have now finished reading every chapter and my notes are done. Now, it’s time to memorize and study hard. Flash cards, anyone?
This isn’t anything important, but I just wanted to let you know that this tea is the nectar of the gods. That’s all.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted my fitness schedule for the week! It’s high mileage week for my half training so I should be spending some quality time with my foam roller this week.
Tuesday: Sub Zumba
Bike 35 minutes
Wednesday: Run 5 miles
Thursday: Swim 30 minutes
Saturday: Bike 35 minutes
Sunday: Long run – 12 miles
And I can actually do my biking OUTSIDE now! It’s a miracle! No more hamster wheel spin bike for me!
What’s your fitness schedule look like this week?
How are you doing on your goals?
I’ll see you guys later this week!
