Fitness Friday & A Giveaway




This week, I’m happy to report that I have Fitness related things to report about! YAY!

Since my sunburn is MUCH improved, I started the week excited about working out! I am not yet allowing myself to run, but I did enjoy several other non-running options this week!

….walk…like the wind?

Saturday/Sunday – Yard work most of both days
Monday – Memorial Day, rest day
Tuesday – Ripped in 30 Week #1 and 6 mile bike ride
Wednesday – Ripped in 30 Week #1
Thursday – Ripped in 30 Week #1 and 2 mile vigorous walk with the puppies
Friday – Ripped in 30 Week #1 and hopefully a bike ride after work

I’m also hoping to take a longer bike ride on Saturday, we’ll see what my running buddies are up to and they might let me tag along behind them while they run!

Now, I have good news and I have bad news. I’ll start with the bad news first – my grandfather is back in the hospital. He’s losing blood because his blood counts are dropping. Back in December, he started complaining of not feeling well and I think that’s when all of this started (like a long, slow bleed). His stools are positive for microscopic blood, so they are doing a colonoscopy this morning to check him out. If you think about him today, please say a prayer that what they find is something fixable! Thank you so much to everyone who has prayed thus far! You guys are awesome!

Aaaand now the good news… I am hosting a giveaway!

The awesome people at Zensah contacted me to write a review of their Argyle Compression Socks, then host a giveaway for you lovely people! Of course I agreed!

I was given the option to choose any Argyle print Zensah Compression sock, so I chose these:

I am a fan of compression socks and I absolutely love the teal blue color on these! Even though I’m not running at the moment, I took these out a few times for bike rides and walks with my puppies. I’ve also worn them for recovery post cross training!

I sure do wear this shirt a lot, don’t I? :0)

Per their website, “Zensah Argyle Compression Socks provide runners, triathletes, cyclists, and all athletes with increased circulation and decreased recovery time by utilizing advanced graduated compression in each pair of argyle compression socks.”
  • Graduated compression provides increased oxygenated blood flow and decreased recovery time

  • Silver ions for thermal regulation
  • Padded toe and heel for shock absorption
  • Arch support keep feet feeling comfortable

  • Seamless technology for added support
The best part? We will have not one, not two, but THREE lucky winners! Each winner will receive a pair of Zensah Argyle Compression Socks of their choosing!

  5. I am recovering from an emergency surgery a few weeks ago- these also work great for other things than running like this. I am planning on going to Disneyland still in Aug & the Dr said that runners should wear compression socks on the long plane rides to help keep their circulation going from sitting so long

  13. Compression socks are long, stretchy, washable footwear used to improve the circulation in the legs. They are designed to provide the most pressure at the ankles. The pressure is reduced in the upper parts of compression socks and this is really an awesome stuff,I must say.
