How you doin? Hopefully, you're relaxing and enjoying our slightly cooler weather, fantasizing about the autumnal crispness that is weeks away. I am so ready for fall. I'm already working on some autumnal recipes to share, but I'm trying to wait until it is officially autumn in twelve days to get in the spirit, well knowing it won't feel like fall until mid- to late-October here in Texas.
Be forewarned, y'all- I saw pumpkins, gourds, and mums all over while grocery shopping today and I had to do some SERIOUS self-restraint to not buy them this early in the season...though I may or may not have bought some honeycrisp apples, a pomegranate, and some of those nasty candy corn pumpkins yesterday in a moment of weakness.
So my workouts this week normalized for the most part after the Labor Day weekend. I'm not feeling as worn out now that I'm getting back into my teacher-groove and my body and brain are reacquainted with running at about 100 mph for 8 hours everyday.
Okey dokey, folks, here's what I did this last week. Feel free to ask me about how to modify any of these if you have any limitations or injuries. I'd be happy to help you make these work for you!
