CrossFit/ Running/ Weekly Workouts

Weekly Workout Recap (including CrossFit with my nearly 70-year old mom!)

One of my favorite things about having my mom visit is that she is always up for trying new workouts. The last time she visited, she watched Tommy and me do Crossfit, but couldn’t participate because of a severely rolled ankle. When she went home, she started doing CrossFit in Utah and has been hooked. Nine months later, on this visit, it was really fun to do CrossFit together! She turns 70 this year and regularly deadlifts 85 lbs. She is so amazing and I couldn’t be prouder of her!

F- 3.3 miles, 8:30 pace + driving range outing!

  • I snuck out for a quick run while my mom slept off some jet lag! That night, we went to the driving range and it was so fun! Tommy was ADORABLE teaching my mom, who had never hit a golf ball in her life. My heart exploded a million times over.

We were both a sweaty mess afterwards!

Su- 5.0 miles; 8:24 pace

  • This was a fun buddy treadmill run w/ Kate. We started outside but the wind and rain was BRUTAL. So, we quickly turned around and ran side by side in my apartment gym instead. It was empty at 7:30 AM on a Sunday so we just chatted away. (And that way, Kate could run 8:00 pace and I could go slower. 😉 )

Total Miles: 23.2

I’m SO grateful for a mom who set the example to be healthy and active. She’s been running for FORTY YEARS, has done hot yoga for years, Pure Barre, and now also does CrossFit. I’m going to have her do a guest post for the Run Around!! She’s such an inspiration.

Alright, I’m off to prep dinner! Pan-seared salmon + wild rice kale salad from Run Fast Eat Slow!

    You Mom is just THE cutest! How inspiring is she!? I hope I’m half as active and fit as she is at 69. Speaking of which, she looks so much younger than that! Moms are the best. 🙂
