On A Roll

The summer heat is still ablazin in my neck of the woods hence my lack of blogging. I'm spending so much time trying to stay cool that the thought of incurring excess heat, despite a laptop fan, is beyond me. The only thing I look forward to is my workout at the end of each day. 

Last week on Wednesday I went for a 2.5 mile run with my 10 dumbbells in tow. My arms are getting so much stronger I love it!!! On Thursday/Friday/Saturday the boy and I had a myriad of chaotic errands to run. On Sunday  my girlfriends and I had to make a quick five hour outta town drive to be with our girl who recently lost a loved one. On Monday I was too beat from all the shenanigans to think about a workout let alone summon the strength to get into my workout clothes. 

However, on Tuesday I went for my 2.5 run/powerwalk with my dumbbells. I'm truly loving the extra kick I get from the dumbbells during my workouts. On Wednesday I decided to go on one of favorite running trails that I hadn't frequented in a whiile. I left a little earlier than I would, again my dumbbells in tow. I'm not gonna put those lil suckers down for what its worth. This trail is a good 3.55miles which I did in 50 minutes. Tonight, I went back to the same trail and did the 3.55 miles again. I'm on a roll and I love it. I think I need to UP my water chugging though because I get this dry patch at the back of my throat when am working out. Today was better because I  drunk some water on my drive to the trail and a little more before I started. Its a little hard to drink as I workout because my hands are taken up by my dumbbells. So I'm doing my best to hydrate a lot during the day, pre-workout and post-workout.

Sorry I haven't read all of your lovely blogs in a while. I will be making my rounds starting tomorrow. I hope everyone is having a lovely week.

That trail sounds awesome! Good for you for not giving up those dumbells, that is so hardcore.
