We survived our first full week of summer vacation. I must admit, I forgot how challenging it can be juggling THREE active personalities throughout the day… all day long. Keeping them busy, entertained, happy, FED, and not constantly fighting with each other (or me).
I do enjoy having them all home (even if the adjustment is only adding my oldest home during the morning). However, the biggest adjustment for me is fitting in my fitness each day. My morning runs on the trail have hit a kink (as the oldest needs to ride his bike… which results in the middle AND YOUNGEST) wanting to ride their bikes also.
I have adjusted by doing more family walks and bike rides with the boys. Then taking advantage of my husband being home or the YMCA to get in a good sweat fest.
I am proud to say that I was able to fit in fitness this week. The boys covered quite a few miles on their feet (or bikes) also! This past week was more focused on getting a new family routine and summer schedule set in place. We did a lot of reading, imaginative play and keeping busy.
What I did (fitness) last week:
Sunday: HOT evening (after boys went to sleep) 5.34 mile run to run the crankies away
Monday: Bootcamp Style Strength Class (stations)
Tuesday: 5 mile tempo run on the treadmill
Wednesday: 1 mile walk/run with the boys; 4 mile easy treadmill run
Thursday: 1.11 mile bike ride to the park with the boys
Friday: 1 mile walk to the park w/the boys & 9 mile SOLO run on the trail
Saturday: walked 1.57 miles to (and from) a friends house for a graduation party
My Fitness PLAN for this coming week:
*We will be on vacation this week… so I am thankful that this is a recovery week for me*
Tuesday: 5 miles easy
Wednesday: 4 miles easy
Friday: 4 miles easy
Sunday: 5 miles easy
