It's Friiiidaaay!!!!

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Happy Friday Friends…and to all of our Canadian friends…happy looooong weekend!!!!!


Today instead of just sharing with you a few of my “random” favourites this week – I thought instead I would share some health and fitness favourites from this week.


This workout. I need to start incorporating strength training into my life again, and I think that this will be a good start.


I am the first one to admit that I really do NOT like water – so drinking it can sometimes pose a challenge for me. So for the past few weeks, I have really been on a mission to make sure that I am staying properly hydrated, and more then anything give my body what it really needs. I try and have 1 water bottle with me that is always just plain ‘ol water, and then I fill another one with flavoured (aka. Crystal light). I have been aiming for 80oz a day…for the most part; like probably at least 5 out of 7 days – I am making this happen


It’s no secret that I have really been loving pool workouts this year. I usually just either swim laps, or go to an aqua-fit class – but I thought what better way to break up the monotony of “just” swimming laps – and through in some “exercises” along the way


I still have a $50 gift certificate that I won at a race, for a local running store…so I am always on the hunt for something to spend it on…and I can across these beauties this week


#teamsparkle did a photo challenge for the month of July, and one of the posts this last week was – why do you run? This sums up for me a very personal message of why “I” choose to run.

Happy weekend friends – tell me something fun you plan on doing this weekend!

What “fitness” favourites did you have this week?


  1. A little late since it is now Saturday but.....
    We spent the afternoon on the boat with some good friends (one of Chris' high school buddies and his family - they live in TX now but are visiting family) and are fixing to head to dinner (adults only!!!) with those friends and another high school friend and his wife who we love!!!
