Friday Five: Fitness Snapshots

I am going to make this post short and sweet for you today. I am linking up with the fabulous DC Trifecta, aka Courtney @EatPrayRunDC , Mar @Mar on the run and Cynthia @YouSignedupforWhat?!. Today’s theme is “Fitness snapshots”.

This snapshot was from a couple of weeks ago. If you follow me on Instagram and my Facebook page than this isn’t new to you but for those that don’t, here ya go! I saw someone on FB post a video of their wall walks and it looked like something I could try and work on. My hubby saw it too and next thing you know, we are both practicing these wall walks and trying to do better than the other person. We aren’t competitive at all {insert *sarcasm*} If you want to see the whole video go to my IG or FB account and it was from a couple of weeks back!

We all went over to my parents for the 4th of July and had a nice day in the pool! Z loves the water which has its positives and negatives.

Last Sunday I met our training group for another group run. Majority of us started at 6:30, but I wanted to run 12-13 miles that morning and knew I needed to get out there before than. I met one of the ladies in our group at 5:30 so we could get in a few extra miles before the rest of the girls showed up. It was hot that day. I am glad we got an early start. I ran 5 miles at 5:30am, 4 miles with the group and drove home and ran my last 3 miles to make it a total of 12 for the day. I was going to run the last 3 on the trail, but I quickly started having bathroom “issues” and thought it would be smart to be “close to home”.

Since we moved Z to his toddler bed, the nap situation hasn’t been that consistent and/or long. The only way he will go done for a nap is if I take him on a short walk (in his stroller) around our neighborhood. The walk is only about 20 minutes, but when it is 1 in the afternoon and it is already at least 95 degrees, it isn’t the most relaxing walk (for me). It is worth dealing with the heat for 20 minutes if it gets  Z to sleep for 3 hours. It is totally worth it! I don’t know how to break this cycle of him having to be walked in order to fall asleep, but I will try anything so he keeps his long 3-hour naps. I know he still needs a nap because when he doesn’t nap than by dinner time he is literally falling asleep on the couch. Okay, enough of my rant about my sons’ nap time, I could write a whole novel in this topic.

Last night, I did something that I have never done. I ran on the trail at night. Actually, it wasn’t technically dark out, but by the time we finished our run the sun had gone down. I met up with a running buddy and we ran 6 miles with her. It was tough to get motivated to get out that late in the evening to go running, but I was glad I did (when I was finished). It is true what they say, “You never regret the workout you did, but always regret the one you didn’t do” or something to that effect.

  1. Impressive wall stands! I need to learn how to do that.

  2. Happy Fit Mama says:

    Wall stands are killer. I love doing them just to prep for one day actually doing a real handstand.

  3. I have never done a wall stand. Will have to find your video and then give it a shot. I wonder if a little walk in the heat will get my Z (Zoë) down for a longer naps. She fights nap time but I make it happen all be it short. Will give it a shot next week 🙂

    I love the picture of the feet of your running group. It almost makes me want to join a running group too!

  5. i’m not good at night runs so i really admire that you did that!!

  6. If it weren’t so late at night, I’d go try wall stands right now! I’m sure they’re not easy even though you make them look easy!
