Friday Five: 5 Fitness Snapshots

Happy Friday! As I said in the previous blog post, I have been in kind of a funk. I haven't had much motivation to workout, but then I remembered that I was linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC,  Mar from Mar On The Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What? for Friday Five: Fitness Snapshots. I started looking through my phone gallery and found some great pictures that truly represent me. Fitness can be found in so many shapes and forms so it was fun to compile my favorite five. This is exactly what I needed to get my workout mojo back!

PUSHUPS: I have made a goal for myself to really improve my form and do a lot more than 5! Yeah I am pretty bad when it comes to pushups. Luckily my husband has really been working with me. I can already see progress!


RACES: This picture is from race day for the Carlsbad Half Marathon. It was my first race of the year and I did exceptionally well considering I have been battling with plantar fasciitis. Seeing this picture brought me such joy because it was the last long run I've done and I am just aching at the chance of doing my next one.


GYM WORKOUTS: I love going to the gym because I have so many options to choose from. This picture was all about wall-sits and some much needed sauna time. You can usually find me on a treadmill and then hitting the free weights though.


SNOWBOARDING: Like I said you can get a workout by doing so many other things than just running or hitting the gym. This year I went to the snow to snowboard and man was it a total leg and core workout! I was sore for quite a few days afterwards.


HIKING: When I came down to visit family over the holidays I was able to squeeze in a quick hike. It was beautiful since it has 360 degree views of San Diego. Not only did I get a good workout but I was able to marvel in the beauty of my hometown city. I miss it there and hope to move back someday.



Any plans for the weekend?

  1. These are great pics, Daisy! I'm feeling pretty motivated by them myself, so I can see how looking at these may have given you a little push in the right direction. Kudos for your snowboarding adventure; I think it looks both fun and super-scary. Ha! Hope you have a great weekend and thank you for sharing these with the Friday Five!

    1. It is definitely hard to get back into snowboarding. I took a 3 year hiatus and boy did I see the difference.

  3. Great job! Isn't great when you are happy with the way a race goes even though you have been battling an injury? That's how I felt about my last marathon. -M

  5. Nice job on the pushups! I have been trying for months to go from on the ground to straight up and still can't do it. And that's awesome you did so well in your race even though you had PF!

  6. You look awesome in those push up photos. I have been trying to improve my core too and need to add push ups into the mix. I love to ski, but have never tried snowboarding. I think I'm too old to start now! Have a great weekend.
