Workouts 7/2-7/8

Ah, the workout log I never posted so I don’t fully remember what I did. Well, that’s just typical of me, but even though I was travelling to Minnesota this week, I did get some good workouts in. I probably should do a whole post on the 4th of July and the Burpee Bean Bags that took place, along with all the other things that the health conscious family members did while we were together. Hm, maybe in month. Ok but really, if you read my blog you know I can be terrible about keeping up with it!

Workouts 8/13 – 8/19

This week’s workout is the ultimate cross-training and random activity work-out log. We spent the weekend in Dallas, and although I brought my running clothes, I wasn’t really in the mood to go running. I also have developed a very low shin splint on my left leg, so I don’t want to over do the running right now. I want to focus on strengthening and stretching and hopefully keep injury free. I start my half-marathon training in about a month and will run the 13.1 miles on November 13th.
