And what a beautiful and warm day it was! Sam and I visited Naomi and payed our respects to those who have served our country. I was trying to explain Memorial Day to Sam since there were SO many pretty flowers and people at her park yesterday. We walked past and saw lots of veterans as I was trying to tell him in the most simple terms what the day is for.
Started the day off bright and early with Ali. Our first trail run of the year together and my longest run in a LONG time. I felt really good almost the entire time, but my pesky knee just hurt so bad towards the end. About 7 miles total. I’m glad we started by 6:30am. Nice and cool and hardly anyone on the trail. I’m also glad she chose to start the day of her Nine year anniversary with me 😉
A quick 5 minute hike in LCC and we were at Lisa Falls. SO pretty and easy to get to!The views are all time.If you’re brave, you can scramble up a steep (and I mean steep) trail to get up a little higher. Sam was all about getting up higher and higher. Just after this spot is when I called it good. SO steep but so beautiful! Dan got in a trail run (his first in a while!) and we relaxed the rest of the long weekend. It was perfect!
Sam did amazing at his swim lessons last week. He’s only had two, 15 minute lessons but because there’s no messing around and the instructors are fairly stern, I already saw progress. He floated on his back for several minutes alone. No crying, no complaining. I am beyond proud. Six more to go!
There’s a friendly competition going on at the gym. I wanted to get on the board, so I squatted 250lbs (it’s a one rep max) That’s more than I’ve ever lifted and I was feeling it, but could have gone 260 if I had t0. That’s good for now though 🙂
I’ve also still been working on my pull up progressions. I challenge you to do one chin up in your life! I still have to get my overhand strict pull up…I will, one day but for now, I can do about 3-4 chin ups in a row.
It’s officially summer around here, so we’ll be doing lots of swimming! Have a great week!
