weekly workouts: looking ahead

First full week of summer break and there’s definitely been an increase in stroller running and a decrease in time spent at the gym.  Oops.  I’m being a little more cautious taking her to the gym daycare (again) with her finger.  I know, they’re not broken, but since I always pick her up with a new bump on her head, I’m playing it safe this week.

So, instead, I’ve been trying to wake up early and do some CF Mamas in the living room before MacKenna wakes up.  I usually can get through a quick workout before she wakes up, but I think my early morning time to myself is numbered.  Lately, her wakeups have been between 6-6:30 AM, way earlier than it used to be.  Should make going to the gym for triathlon training interesting…

A few things I am looking forward to this weekend and the week ahead:

  • Checking out Courtney’s CrossFit box on Saturday – my first “real” CrossFit WOD!
  • Triathlon training starts Monday!
  • Matt’s XC running group starts Monday so I’ll have people to run with and won’t have to push the stroller everyday anymore!

I’m so thankful for summer’s off! 🙂

What are you looking forward to this weekend and next week?

  • Keep up the great work! I need to check out these CF Mamas workouts.

    I am super impressed by all of those stroller runs, girl! I’m glad to hear you’ll get a break from pushing it though!

  • I agree with Jen! Those are some long runs and you’re pushing a stroller! Amazing!

    Good luck at your first WOD! We do not have a box here so I haven’t tried crossfit yet.
