My 5 Latest and Greatest Workouts in Pictures

Since it's Friday I'm joining the Friday Five Linkup with Eat Pray Run DCMar on the Run and You Signed Up for What?!This week's theme is "Fitness Snapshots" so I thought it'd be fun to show you my last 5 days of workouts in pictures.


I went back East to see the bf over the holiday weekend, so I was able to reunite with my favorite DC-area trails. Love my beach runs but I sure do miss those shaded paths sometimes (but not the humidity)!



I got off the bus from LAX to Santa Barbara just in time to make my Monday night women's beach volleyball rec league. Good thing too. After a 5 hour flight and 2 hour bus ride, there's probably no way I would have worked out if my partner wasn't depending on me to show up.



On Tuesday I woke up early for my July goal of doing two pre-work morning workouts a week. I was able to knock out three Blogilates videos in about half an hour: Extreme AbsArms on Fire and Want You Back Arms. Then, after work it was back to the beach for my coed beach volleyball rec league. Love the extra summer daylight and getting so much beach time during the week!



I ran a little over 3 miles to work on Wednesday. It was a little foggy and my legs were pretty tired from all that volleyball, so it wasn't the best runmute ever. It was awesome to have my workout done before 8:00 AM though!



I kept my early morning workout streak going Thursday with a 30 minute super sweaty Nike Training Club strength workout (Perfect Score). I couldn't stop snacking after dinner and was feeling restless, so I distracted myself with some more strength training including another Nike Training Club routine (Shoulder Ripper) and a killer 10-minute Arm Circuit.  

Today's my rest day so I'm just biking to work and trying to walk enough to fill up my Fitbit. And maybe sneaking in a little ab work. Rest days are the worst!

Q: What have you done for this week's workouts? Anybody else hate rest days?

  4. My two rest days are Saturday and Sunday, so it's pretty easy to love my days off since it's the weekend! This week I ran a total of 10 miles (one long run, one hill run, and one sprint run) and went to CrossFit twice. It was a pretty successful week! And I agree with you, getting a workout done before 8am is the absolute best!!! Hope you have an amazing weekend!
