I’ve been totally reveling in summer these last few weeks. I come home from work or a run in the afternoon and walk straight through my house (past my laptop with my blog and twitter!) and straight into the backyard. I think I’ve kicked back with a book nearly every afternoon for the past two weeks! (I’ve been making joint farmers market/library runs every weekend).
So although I’ve spent less time online, I’ve been spending tons of time outside. Working out in the sunshine barely feels like work So here’s a quick recap of the last few weeks in fitness.
June 13: First day of Crossfit on ramp program, plus a 3.5 mile run in the afternoon.
June 14: lunch time yoga in the sunny Square One studio
June 15: Crossfit Day 2, plus 3.25 miles with Berkeley’s Lululemon run club
June 16: lunch time yoga plus an 8 mile run (without my Garmin!)
June 17: Crossfit Day 3
June 18: 20 mile bike ride (holy hills!)
June 19: 3 hours of ocean kayaking at Bodega Bay (absolutely gorgeous day, and nearly no sunburn!)
June 20: Crossfit Day 4 plus a 4 mile run with 3 1K intervals at 10K pace
June 21: lunch time yoga
June 22: Crossfit Day 5 plus 5 miles in the Berkeley hills with Lululemon run club
June 23: lunch time yoga plus a 1 mile run (my knee started hurting and I freaked out and walked home)
June 24: Crossfit Day 6
June 25: rest! (actually, trying on bridesmaids dresses was more strenuous than a long run!)
June 26: 4 mile run along Iron Horse Trail at a fabulous running blogger meet up!
Crazy time! I’ll do a full Crossfit review when I’ve finished the four week on ramp program. So far I’m really enjoying the camaraderie of training with the same group every morning (at 7 AM!), plus the timed workouts bring out my crazy competitive side and push me much further than I would every push myself otherwise.
Do you swap up your workouts or do you have a favorite activity that you always turn to?
