Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts | happyfitmama.comLast week’s workouts weren’t entirely what I planned but it showed me things are moving in the right direction in terms of my plantar fasciitis.

Over the long Labor Day weekend, we went camping and I had full intention of getting in at least one or two trail runs.  But those runs never happened.  Every morning I woke up groggy and stiff.  It took some time before I felt awake.  The last thing I wanted to do was run. By the time I did feel awake and ready, it was time to do family stuff so my runs got pushed aside.  No biggie.  This week is another week to get things moving.


20 minutes Arc Trainer

10 minutes Stepmill

Strength training:

DB bench press

KB plank rows

TRX single arm reach and pull

TRX tricep ext

TRX bicep curls

Eccentric pull ups

Pull up shrugs

Goblet squats

Step ups with KB curl and press

Box jumps

Single leg sit to stand with hop

Walking lunges

Plank/side plank


6 mile run with Kyle

A nice and easy run that didn’t feel so easy because of the ridiculous humidity.  Per usual for this summer, I was drenched in sweat just after doing my dynamic warm up.  I had to laugh at my photo that I snapped after the run.  I looked like I lubed my legs up with baby oil.  Nope…all sweat baby.

30 minutes Stepmill

Strength training:

Bench press

Squat press

Decline push ups

Smith press single leg bench step ups

Split squats

Cable row w/ squat

Eccentric pull ups

Pull up shrugs

KB down dog

Plank with KB pull thru


5 mile trail run

It was another hot and humid day so I took to the trails in hopes for some comfort.  Even in the shade, it was nothing but a soupy, swampy sweat fest.  The calendar says that the dog days of August are ending but Mother Nature has other ideas.


30 minute treadmill walk + short strength training session of single leg squats, hip hikes, lunges, planks, side plank to single leg balance

Ron wanted to try going to the gym in the early morning before work so I was home bound.  I did an interval walk workout on the treadmill followed with some light strength work before heading into work.

Saturday and Sunday

Hiking, swimming, bike rides, and Paddle Boating

We spent the weekend camping at White Lake State Park where we did some hiking, lots of swimming, bike rides and a Paddle Boat tour of the lake. It’s amazing how exhausted you can be at the end of the day when you spend all day outside.  And when you sleep like crap the first night of camping because you hear every single thing.  Especially the raccoons that decided to investigate your site and the loons who decided to start calling at 3 a.m. It was a fun weekend but man, I’m tired!

  1. Loved your campsite pictures but camping is SO exhausting!!! I hate sleeping in a tent and yes, you hear everything and everything you need to do takes so much time and effort from brushing your teeth to making coffee! The struggle is real but the payoff is worth it 🙂 I hope you don’t drown in sweat again this week but so far it’s not looking good!!

  2. I had to laugh at your comments about the “baby oil” on your legs LOL I have had numerous similar pics in recent weeks…and have left telltale drops of “water” all over the ground as I’m trying to get that post-run selfie taken.

  3. Glad to hear your PF is feeling better! Camping can be so tiring yet so fun. I never sleep well either, especially after the one time we had a bear outside our tent – now I think any noise is a bear! The views of the lake look so pretty, though.

  4. I just loved your IG photos of your camping trip. It’s hard to see summer winding down, isn’t it? Altho I won’t miss the humidity.

  5. Gorgeous pictures!!! Sounds like you had a great week workout wise! I’m trying to get back into my routine after lots of vacations and being off schedule. I got in 2 runs so far, so i’m at a good start!

  6. It’s great to hear the PF is improving! What a beautiful camping spot you guys had. It sounds like fun memories for you and the kids. All that outdoor activity does make you feel exhausted…but in a good way. Thanks for linking!
