A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. We have just been straight up relaxing. It’s been so nice after some traveling and more traveling coming up.
Last week was pretty chill in the working out department. I traveled to Asheville, NC to be with my family for a few days and working out wasn’t on the top of my agenda. While I usually like to do some travel WODs or go to a local CrossFit, I decided to take it easy.
I’ve been working pretty hard lately on my strength and putting in a lot of time in the gym – training for that competition (that was rescheduled to a different date and I won’t be in town for – boo!) while also doing some regular WODs. This trip was a great way to give my body a little rest and recuperate. I love working out, but our bodies need time to recover and rebuild after all the hard work we put it through. This was a great way to take advantage of that.
That being said, we did go hiking on two different days. One day with a shorter hike and another with a long 15 mile hike. I haven’t hiked much, but my sister and her boyfriend enjoy it and wanted to go, so I tagged along. It was a great way to get moving and stay active while still enjoying my family and seeing and exploring a new place. And man was I sore the next day.
When traveling, you don’t always need to do your typical workout routine. Look for things like hiking, paddle boarding, exploring the city, or even just going for a walk in the evening. I think as long as you are moving your body in some way, it counts!
