Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts | happyfitmama.com

The weeks keep flying by.  It’s hard to believe it’s time for another last week’s workouts.  The good news is that I did not hurt myself this week like last week.  Oh wait a minute.  Scratch that.  I DID slam my finger in the door.  Ironically, it was my middle finger.  Thankfully, it wasn’t so bad.  I just have a purple finger nail now.  It could always be worse, right?

Wednesday

Autumn Equinox 108 Sun Salutations at Bending Bodhi

Yes, 108.

I haven’t been to yoga that much since spraining my ankle because my usual time has conflicted with appointments. And then the bike incident last week left my wrist feeling quite sore.

When I did this for the summer solstice, I flew right through it with no need for breaks. This time, I  there were multiple times I had to stop to take a child’s pose.  But that’s ok, I’m glad I listened to my body.  Even with the rest breaks, my arms and chest were absolutely dead later in the day and for two days later. Doing 108 chaturanga push ups will do that.

Thursday

It was super awkward the first 20 minutes of my time in the pool.  It was just me and the life guard.  He was watching to make sure I didn’t drown.  While I was wondering, “Does he think I’m drowning?”

Hike with the family

The weather was gorgeous! It felt more like summer than fall all weekend long.  We did a super easy hike in the afternoon after all the kids stuff in the morning.  I kept it easy and didn’t hurt myself.  I call that a win.

Sunday

20 mile bike ride

I finally got out on my bike again.  The weather was too gorgeous not to!  And no.  I did not get the bike down from the garage.  Ron wouldn’t let me.  Haha.

  1. Seeing you write down your works out makes me think I should do that…how do you remember it all LOL I’d forget what I did the minute I got home, well maybe.
    108 push ups is intense, my favorite part of the post? Acorn man!

    1. I make notes of what I want to do before I go to the gym. But sometimes I have to improvise. Acorn Man is a family favorite. We can’t go on a hike without him!

  2. That’s a beautiful stretch of road for cycling! Cycling in full on sun almost did me in this weekend. We’d cheer anytime we’d reach just the smallest patch of shade! I never pool ran without plenty of people in the pool. So, that awkward lifeguard thing wasn’t extreme — but still weird. I hope your ankle is improving! Thanks for linking.
