Happy Mother’s Day

Here’s to a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms reading my blog! A huge shoutout goes to my own mom for being such a great influence on me and teaching me to strive to always be the best that I could be. It was through her example, that I learned to be a loving and caring mom.

And of course, I wouldn’t be a mom if it weren’t for these two cuties who made being a mom incredibly rewarding.

I couldn’t be prouder of the men they’ve become!

Tenth of May Cold Spell

Growing up, I always heard my dad talk about not planting crops until after the tenth of May cold spell. Every year, like clockwork, we have one final cold snap around this time before the heat and humidity of summer starts creeping toward us. This year’s tenth of May cold spell, which started a day early, was a doozy with wind chills down into the 20’s yesterday morning and with today’s high expected to be around 63°.

 

And Now on to a RunDown of this Past Week’s Workouts…

 

Running

As difficult as it is for me, I’m playing it safe and walking for another week or two.

 

Walking

I went on five walks this week, four alone and one with a friend, socially distanced of course. On Thursday my friend Betty stopped by, and wearing masks, we walked two miles while catching up. I stayed on the sidewalk and she walked in the street – don’t worry, it was safe, we didn’t see a single car.

On Saturday, I walked the Virtual Mother’s Day Four-Miler, but since it was so cold, I stayed inside on my treadmill. I’ll have more to share in my recap later this week.

 

Biking

Ugh, I never made time to ride… 🙄

 

Strength Training

I took it pretty easy with lifting on Monday, but gained momentum as the week progressed. I also did two half-hour physical therapy homework sessions.

 

Yoga

Oops, I was negligent in my yoga practice as well… 😬

 

It’s on the Blog

In case you skipped checking in on my blog this past week, here’s what you missed…

 

In addition to the workouts I mentioned above, here’s a complete rundown of my workouts from this past week (completed either outside or in our home gym)…

 

Questions:
  • • If you’re a mom or have a mom, how are you celebrating Mother’s Day? ~ I sent a card and flowers to my mom and will call her later today.
  • • How’s the weather where you live, are you experiencing a tenth of May cold spell?
  • • Did you run in a virtual race this weekend? ~ I walked a virtual race yesterday!

 

And that’s my rundown… Have a great week!
