weekly workouts: summertime

School’s out for summer!  Summer means sleeping in, morning runs, trips to Fritz’s, the zoo, and the beach, and just plain ol’ relaxation.  It also means time to get things done, fix up our house, plan for next year, and prepping my new volleyball team for the upcoming season.  I’ve only been out one day and summer is already off to a great start!

Summer also means training for my first triathlon.  I will definitely have more on that next week…

MacKenna and I hit up my favorite running trail yesterday morning.  It was such a nice morning and she loved every second of the stroller.  I’m so lucky that she loves running in the stroller with me.  It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do with her.  I can’t wait until she can run next to me!

What do you look forward to most in the summer time?

  • My kids love going for walks in the jogging stroller! I’m actually on the lookout for a triple seater! That should be a good workout! ;)

      You are hardcore mama! :)

  • Great workout week! I look forward to no traffic. That way I can cruise right to work and have a few minutes extra to myself every day. :)

      I totally understand the no traffic thing! My job this past year is opposite traffic – it is so nice to just relax on my drive in the morning!
