Ahhh summer. What a wonderful time to relax, sit by the pool, make homebrew, drink homebrew. Sound lazy? It kinda is and it kinda isn’t. Here’s a little bit of my summer so far, and some of what’s in store.
To start with we have been doing a lot of CrossFit. I’ve been getting to four WODs a week; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday. I’ve also been running a good bit more than I was in Montana. Last week was 4-5 miles Tuesday and Thursday, 3 miles Wednesday and Saturday, and 6-7 miles Sunday. At first I was worried about burning out or feeling fatigued all the time but haven’t had any issues yet. Lots of mobility work and eating right has helped. Adrienne and I are ramping up to start training for a half marathon in September so it won’t slow down anytime soon.
With all that working out recovery, physical and mental, are important. We have been able to go on a couple of hikes so far this summer which the dogs appreciate. Dylan won’t sleep until all the squirrels are off the ground. Last weekend Adrienne and I took our bikes to Asheville to do our own brewery tour and found an awesome taco shop.
Next month Adrienne and I will be back in Montana for a week long backpacking trip. Hopefully there will be some successful fly fishing as well.
Follow the rest of our summer here!
