Fitness Friday - 11/11

Another weekend is here and I am so excited!

First off, I want to say a big giant THANK YOU to all of our Veterans who have served our country. I don't take your sacrifice lightly and I appreciate your dedication!

There's a few things in store for this weekend - number one being another 10K that I'm running with a friend and the second being Christmas decor. Yes, I am one of those who likes to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving. I'm going to start a weekend early and take it slow but's so going to happen!

After running last weekend's 10K, I was very sore for several days. I guess I hadn't pushed my body like that in a long time. I took Sunday off (as I always do) and took things a bit easier this week.

Currently Training For:
  • Cajun Cup 10K (Lafayette, LA)
  • Cajun Country Half Marathon (Lafayette, LA)
  • Disney's Princess Half Marathon & Glass Slipper Challenge
  • Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon
Saturday - Cowboy Gallop 10K
Sunday - Rest Day 
Monday - 2 mile walk with Brayden
Tuesday - Rest Day
Wednesday - Tone it Up Girls workout - I did two videos from You Tube for a total of 25 minutes. Talk about a workout!! They kicked my booty!
Thursday - 3 mile run
Friday - PT/Leg exercises

On Monday, I took Brayden out for a 2 mile walk. The sun is setting earlier now so it's hard to manage between my getting off work and his afternoon nap time.

I also took to You Tube for a Tone It Up Girls workout this week. I know they are always sure to kick my booty and give me a good workout.

Last night, I ran for the first time since Saturday's 10K. Again, I didn't want to push myself too hard since I have another 10K coming up this weekend. All went well with last night's run. Keeping on top of my PT routine has been super beneficial!

Yesterday was our first true fall day where it stayed cool all day long. It's even chillier excited! Hopefully the weather for tomorrow's 10K will be perfect!

It was a nice, easy 3 mile run through the neighborhood!

The Halloween and Fall decor is slowly coming down - I'm almost completely finished now! I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas this weekend. I might not have informed my husband of these plans, either...sorry Jason! Haha!

Have a great weekend! 

Do you have any fun weekend plans? Any races coming up?


  1. I can't wait to get out and run tomorrow. Lows in the 50s right now, which is wonderful to think about. Now that it's light out early, I don't have to wait so long to run in the morning.

  2. Good luck this weekend at the race, and I want to see pics of the Christmas decor!

  3. That's awesome that you ran a 10k! I am trying to get in good enough shape to be able to run a thanksgiving 5k!
