Week In Review

This week has been a great one through and through.  The kids are out for the summer and I'm off work (volunteer) until School starts up again, what's not to love!

I've been running outside this week...3 times, woohoo! Although I am not sitting much these days I am feeling pretty good.

  • Cleaned Susan's house 1 hour

  • Ran 1 hour and 11 minutes (6 miles)

Sunday June 2
  • Walked 49 minutes (3.5 miles)

Monday June 3
  • Walked 1 hour and 19 minutes
  • AMT 13 minutes

Tuesday June 4
  • Arc Trainer 45 minutes

Wednesday June 5
  • Ran 55 minutes (5 miles)

Thursday June 6
  • AMT 45 minutes

Friday June 7
  • Cleaned Susan's house 2 hours (believe me it's a workout)

Saturday June 8
  • Ran 1 hour and 15 minutes (6.6-7.0 miles)

Whew, I think I'm all caught up now! I have really liked doing the run/walk 4:1 intervals and my body really is responding well! I don't seem to have as much pain in the hip that usually gives me grief. As far as being able to sit, no real change...not sure it will ever get better but who needs to sit down! LOL...

My 17 year old has applied for two jobs so he can make some money this summer.  Not sure how I feel about that because he does not have his license yet and I don't really want to be the one shuttling him back and forth.  He can always ride his bike if he works during the day time, but if he has a late night shift I will have to pick him up...ugh! We shall see if either one of the jobs pan out! I would like to see him get some more responsibility and do something this summer besides sit around and play video games with his brothers.  

Don't get me wrong, they do a lot of work at our stores during their summer break so they aren't really just being just seems like it at times to their mother.  He would like to get out there and start working for someone other than his dad, (not that he minds it) plus the money would be a major bonus for him and his life!  Well enough of my ranting...I'm off to get ready to go workout at the YMCA...ha ha ha, now you have that song playing in your head! Have a great day y'all!


"Limitations only exist if you let them"

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

  1. Guess it will be a give-and-take if he gets a job. He's out of the house making money but you might be driving.
    Good workout week, Shannon!

  2. Congratulations on another great training week! I am a huge fan of the 4:1 run/walk ratio, too - it really does help keep your legs and lungs fresh over long distances. Look forward to hearing how things pan out with your son getting a job!!!


I'm so happy you stopped by...can't wait to hear all you've got to say! Blessings and hugs!
