Fitness Friday - 7/27

Hello Friday! I'm so very glad the weekend is here again. Jason is off from work this weekend which means we get to spend it together as a family! I love weekends when he's home! :)

Here's a glimpse of how my week went, workout wise!

You'll notice I only made it to Orangetheory one day this week. Well, that's because my parent's are on vacation and Jason's work schedule this week didn't allow any extra time for me to get in a workout. Instead, I'm going for my second Orangetheory day of this week tomorrow morning!

 Knowing how my week was going to pan out, I convinced myself that I needed to get out of bed on Saturday morning and go for a run. It was too hot to run very far with Brayden and although my head told me that it wasn't really a "Saturday long run" if I didn't make at least five or six miles (yeah right), I didn't listen and just ran.

We started out super early (like not long after the sun rose) and it was my goal to be finished with the run before the heat index began to rise.

In total, we made 4 miles and I was happy with that. It was a very slow 4 miles from my usual because I just wasn't feeling it that day, but it was done and that's all that matters!

Afterwards, we had a few errands to run so we treated ourselves to Starbucks!

He loved his muffin!

On Monday morning, I got out of the door early for my one OTF opportunity for the week. It was an endurance day and I definitely left the workout feeling accomplished.

That evening, a local frozen yogurt shop offered a "pay your age" event, so we had to go! Basically, you had the opportunity to fill up your cup and pay pennies to the dollar of your age. Brayden' s was twenty cents and mine was three dollars and fifty cents! Score!

A crazy mad heat wave spread over the south earlier this week and we saw temps with a heat index well into the hundreds. Combine that with the humidity and it was so...UGH. Hot.

On Tuesday afternoon, my friend Melissa and I took Brayden on a three mile walk around our usual route. Have you ever seen a house all wrapped up like the circus is coming to town? Me either. We were like HUH? After a little investigation, I'm pretty sure they were treating termites.

Signs were even up all over the house, warning anyone who got too close of the "deadly poison" inside! Scary!

Last night, we waited until the sun was setting before heading out for a 3 mile run. It was still hot but not as bad as it's been this week.

This run started out with me thinking it was going to be another awful run like Saturday, and then it turned into an awesome run! I even had negative splits with pushing the stroller! The first mile was a 9:40, the second a 9:04, and the final mile an 8:25.

I'm serious when I say that cross training has made a world of difference. Why on earth I never stuck with something like this before, I have no idea!

I also can't wait for Saturday's Orangetheory workout! There's only one coach I haven't taken a class from yet and she will be the instructor on Saturday. I've heard she's awesome so I'm really looking forward to it!

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Termite tents were pretty blah when I was growing up. At least that one has some color scheme.

  2. Wow, those poor people who own that house. I hope everything works out for them. You'll have to take another photo once they take the tarp off.

    Have fun this weekend!

    1. It’s weird, but the house looks exactly the same as it did before… It’s a log cabin, so that might be why they have problems with termites! I hope it all works out for them too. And Thank you!!

  3. I'm glad to hear that your OTF classes are paying off. Everybody that I know that goes to those classes raves about them. Maybe I should give it a try once I'm done with the marathon.

    1. I know you would enjoy it! It’s a great workout!

  4. Tenting is how they treat termites in California so it's very familiar to me. It was odd when they treated our house in San Antonio via the ground...I was all, is this REALLY going to work??
