I'm so happy with the time and energy I've had for physical-fitness this summer. It's been 7 weeks since I left Philadelphia, and my regimen has been as follows:
Running - 15-20 miles per week
Boot Camp (strength training) - once per week
Yoga - 1-2 times per week
+ occasional Pilates and bike-riding.
Tomorrow I'll add a little bit of aerial work back into the mix.
...oh, and I forgot to mention stair-climbing! 4 of 5 times a week I head up the stairs behind our house, all 394 of them.
I feel strong and confident. It's great!
I don't have a specific goal for the end of the summer yet. But my longest run so far is 8 miles. I'm hoping to eventually get it up to 10 miles. (Broad Street Run next year, here I come!)
Sometimes, being out exercising, you come across things you would never see otherwise. Like hot-air balloons descending from flight at 7am. Or this rainbow over the St. Lawrence River, which we all got to see during a family bike ride the other day.
