We got our pictures from the Color Me Rad 5k and they are sooo fun!! And no joke, every time we do a 5k, Cameron looks like a dreamboat. He’s so photogenic it makes me
sick happy he’s allll mine!
And here’s another one.. he could be the face of this run. Seriously.
Because this is my blog i guess you can see my mug as well. I was just happy that our outfits were fun and stood out from everyone wearing white.
Even though my ankle was not cooperating during this run, when I went through a color station one of the volunteers said “Now there’s a real runner”–don’t know what he meant, but it was appreciated even though I was in pain.
This might just be our last 5k together as an unmarried couple.. so weird!!
Good news from my latest chiro appt. I have 2-4 weeks of therapy/cross training/and pool running (hope to get my first swim sesh in tomorrow morning!). The Doc was very optimistic i’d be back running soon as long as i’m not pushing my “land” workouts too much. Which means no heavy lifting or deep squats or lunges for now. Using the TRX suspension trainers for leg work was ok’d because i can take a lot of weight out of my ankle and focus on balance, and control the depth of the moves. (i’ll show you a sample workout when i can get someone to take pics).
Hope everyone’s weekend was a blast!
Monday: 15 min shoulders/squats

How do you find motivation to workout on the weekend? Or early morning?
What is your favorite PRS (post recovery snack!)?
