Happy Friday Everyone! I don’t know how weeks can go so fast and slow at the same time, but this one did. And I’m approaching the final two weeks of classes before I get to go out to a school and student teach, this means I’m almost done all the homework assignments. I’m so close I can taste it!

It’s been another difficult week fitness wise. Between work, school, homework, I haven’t worked out all week and man I feel it! My legs feel stiff from sitting all day with no activity to break up the day. So I’ll make sure to get in a couple runs this weekend and hope for a better week next week. Living in a town with a gym sounds so nice right now.

I missed last week so I’ll recap the last two!

Week of October 7-14

It was Thanksgiving long weekend and I had a great activity filled time. I even managed to keep up my momentum throughout the week! Until Wednesday that is.

Saturday- Quick 2.32 miles with Rocky

Sunday- 5 mile run


Monday- Shovelling snow 1.5 hours & a 1 mile snowy day walk


Wednesday- 2.38 mile run


Thursday-Friday- Nothing

Week of October 14-21

This week was not a good one. I had a great awesome weekend but the week was all business.

Saturday- 7 mile run


Sunday- 2 mile hike- Bears Hump, 1 km walk around Linnet Lake


Monday- Thursday- Nothing

As I’ve had to learn this semester, sometimes you have to be okay with less.

But it’s a fresh start next week and I’ll be sure to get in some activity every day this weekend. But let’s be real- I hear 5am calling me. I’m ignoring the call but the arguments for morning workouts keep getting stronger and stronger.

How was you week?

    I’ve actually found that mornings are the best time for me to work out! I have the most energy so I plan my yoga, swim or run around 6am. Plus it gives me momentum for the work day where I (sigh) sit at a desk. I’ve been moving my laptop around so I can mix it up and stand half of the day.

      I wish I could motivate myself for the mornings! My energy is at it’s highest at 9am, too bad school and work get in the way of that!
