Weekly Training Update: 1st week exploring our new town

Wow, this was a CRAZY week! It was our 1st week exploring our new town, and it was PACKED! Along with visiting daycares every day (to interview them in search of a good one for baby girl), choosing and registering our son for school, and closing on our house, I amazingly got a workout in every day even if it wasn’t much. Here’s how our week went.

Sunday: I had a short, 4ish mile run in the morning. I wanted to go longer, but thunderstorms were nearby, so I cut it short. Still though-it was awesome to get out for a little bit and explore the nearby mountains!IMG_4166[1]

Monday: Hubs headed in to work early, so I did a T25 workout when baby went down for her first nap. Then the kids and dogs and I took a walk in the afternoon.

Tuesday: 6 mile run along a beautiful pathway I found nearby the house we are staying in right now!

I just can't get over how beautiful it is here!!!

Wednesday: Another T25 workout for me during baby’s nap. I did Total Body this time…..it was HARD! In the afternoon, the kids and dogs and I walked to the Arboretum close by the house we are staying in! It was beautiful!IMG_4194[1]

Thursday: Baby woke up at 5:15 for the day….sooooo I opted to take her out in the stroller for my run in the morning. Thankfully, she fell back asleep that way, and I got in an 8 mile run with her! It was quite a workout because the stroller I ran with wasn’t our usual stroller-its one I’m borrowing from a friend and isn’t technically a jogging stroller.

We like to walk :) )IMG_4223[1]Friday: Baby woke a little earlier than usual, so I didn’t get a workout in before she woke. However, she was super good while I did a T25 workout with her up! She played happily the whole time!

She liked watching it :)

Then later in the morning, we closed on our house!!! In the evening, we took the kids over to see it and they approved! :)

I mean, who wouldn't approve?? Check out our gorgeous view in the backyard!!

Saturday: Whew, FULL day! I got up early and ran 7.65 miles before baby woke for the day. I got to do some exploring in the mountains! I found a great trail!

Buuuut then I saw this....and I promptly turned around! I did NOT want to see a rattlesnake on my first mountain run!

After my run, we literally spent the entire day at our new house PREPPING to paint! We sanded, washed walls, took off outlet covers, an

d taped surfaced ALL DAY! Actually, after dinner when I went back to our rental house with the baby, hubs and my son stayed to keep working. We’ve got a full day of painting to do today! Happy Father’s Day, hubs. :/ So, that was our crazy awesome week! We are looking forward to getting more done on our house this week, but sadly not moving in yet. The moving company got delayed so our stuff won’t be moved in till the 29th!! Grrrrr…. oh well..more time to work on the house!

How was your week? Any fun adventures?
