Remember that nasty snow storm that happened upon us last weekend? Well, let me refresh your memory....it rained all night (Friday evening), most of Saturday morning, and then turned to snow. And that snow continued to fall most of the afternoon on Saturday. Sunday was bright and sunny, but cold. Although the icy tree branches looked kind of magical in the bright glow of the sunlight, I was over and done with any beauty of winter.
Fortunately for us (the hubby, myself, and our youngest daughter), we made our way to the airport late Sunday afternoon and flew the heck outta there. Destination: Florida!
The temps were in the high 60's on Monday morning, and I was euphoric to head outside for a short run in the balmy Florida air. Ahhhhh! Our hotel's golf course was right outside our building, so I ran a couple miles along the cart path while the hubby and daughter played tennis. I may have even done some strength work with the daughter and yoga in the afternoon.
|A nice balmy #nevermissaMonday run
|Not my typical #5at5...more like a #5at8 LOL
**2 sets of double steps (8 total flights)
**1 set of single steps (4 flights)
--> 4 total circuits netted me 40 burpees, 48 total flights climbed, and 804 total steps!
|Doesn't everyone smile during a set of burpees?
|Having been gone for the past 4-1/2 days, Max would not let me out of his sight
|Even my "messy bun" bit the dust in all that wind!
|Nothing like a couple early morning miles on Easter Sunday to start the festivities!
So that's my week of fitness, spring break style! Total (running) mileage tallied at 17 miles. There was also plenty of daily walking, strength work, and even some extra yoga (at the hotel).
In case you missed them, here are the posts from last week:
***Since I was spring-breaking, I didn't do a Tuesday/Wednesday post last week, nor did I participate in my usual link-ups on any of the days we were in Florida (since I knew I wouldn't have time to read other blogs or reply to the comments on mine in a timely fashion). Oh well. Sometimes the blogging has to take a back seat to family time, right?
In other news:
My #FridayFashionFlair post (on Instagram) saw quite a bit of action. I'm a sucker for bright colors and funky color combos. I love the mix of teal and lime green, especially on a cold day! The vibrant colors certainly brighten my mood when there's a lack of sunshine. Of course, the white skinny jeans and cheetah print flats are a staple, and they truly dress up a simple shirt and cardigan without much effort. Please join me on Fridays! Post a pic of a favorite outfit, grab the hashtag (#FridayFashionFlair) and drop me a tag (@runningonthefly). It's fun to see all of my fitness-minded friends in "regular" clothing once in awhile!
