My Super Active Saturday

Hello! I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend because I sure am. Yesterday was what I would call the perfect day!

I started my day off with matcha green tea pancakes.(Find the recipe HERE).

After breakfast Ryan’s kids stopped by and asked to play some baseball, so we went to the field and played. I had to leave after a half hour because I had a track practice scheduled.

If you don’t remember, I coach high school cheerleading and I have coached track in the past. I offered to coach any of my cheerleaders who were interested as the school doesn’t have a track program, kids just sign up for Zones and go. One of my girls Jaymi came for a sprint workout.

We did 4 X 200 & 4 X 100 at 75% as a way to ease into training. I was really happy with how I did. I didn’t die nearly as much as I thought I would and I’m not sore today! Woot! Woot!

After the sprints we did block work as she had never used a set of blocks!

It was so much fun and just felt so good to be back on the track! I’m hoping to get in one or two sprint workouts a week to mix up my routine and because I just love it. I love the feeling of running fast.

After track, I had a quick lunch and headed to the golf course for 18 holes with Ryan.

I was curious about how much walking I do during a game of golf. Ryan insists on using a cart because he says all the walking will hurt his back. I took a picture of my steps from my Fitbit Flex (I am really overdue writing a post review on this magic tracker) before we started and after to see how much I walk.

My steps/distance after. That is 11,000 steps in a game!

11,000 steps during a game of golf! Whoa!! It doesn’t feel like that much at all. Again, I did make an effort to walk out to my ball as much as possible.

So there you have my super active Saturday. If only I could spend every day like that. I’m waiting for another half hour before waking up Ryan and trying to talk him into heading into Waterton for a hike. We’re having a Friends Easter dinner tonight so that should be a ton of fun too.

Happy Easter!

    What an awesome and active day! Hard to believe you can get 5 miles of walking I’m playing 18 holes of golf! Great reason to ditch the cart! The track work looks like so much fun! It gives me a little extra motivation to get my track workouts going again! Happy easter and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      And that 5 miles was WITH a cart! I can only imagine how many miles I would get in without it!
