I will choose the ENERGYbits Giveaway winner in Monday’s post. So check back!

We arrived at our first destination of our two week traveling extravaganza around 7:30 pm last night.

We actually left a couple days early before interviews start to go to Wes’ grandmother’s surprise 90th birthday party today.  It just happened to work out perfectly that we would already be traveling!

Just a beautiful picture from our drive down to Virginia. I love when the sun shines through the clouds!


Since it is Sunday here is my recap of cross training for the week:

Monday – Rest Day

Traveling back from Washington D.C. so took this as a rest day.

Tuesday – Swimming

40 laps in the pool for a total of just over 50 minutes of swimming.

Wednesday – Walking and Upper Body

45 minute walk with my dog along with a few upper body exercises.

Thursday – Swimming and Arc Trainer

20 minutes on the Arc Trainer, 15 minutes lower body weights, and 1 hours swimming (50 laps).

Friday – Walking

45 minute easy walk with Zoe.

Saturday – Arc Trainer and Swimming

I wanted to get ONE last real good workout in before going on the road for two weeks.

We dropped our dog off early in the morning at a friends house to stay while we are gone, and then went to the gym before starting our journey.

I opted for 30 minutes on the arc trainer and then a little over a mile swim.

I had to get the most I could out of the hour and a half we and at the gym before getting on the road.

Sunday – Rest

Total Stats for the Week:

5 days of cross training workouts

2 rest days


Overall I am happy with this week’s cross training.

Honestly, I have to say my leg is still not where I was hoping it would be at this point. I can tell I still need to take it easy and try to do as much non-weight bearing cross training as possible.

I won’t have access to a pool while we are out of town, so I am not quite sure yet how the workouts over the next couple weeks are going to go.

I did download the Nike Training Club app on my iPhone.

I am thinking I could use this to get some strength training in.  We are staying with family a few days where I can use their gyms, but the other days I will have to use whatever the hotels have.

I heard good things about this app, but I haven’t really tried it out yet. I will let you know how it goes!

Off to shower and get ready to the birthday party! Have a great Sunday!

Do you have any go-to fitness apps that you use? Any recommendations?
