It’s been quite the whirlwind week around here! With both kids heading off to college this week, I’ve had tons of emotions swirling around and just tried to keep it all together. I did not get in my usual amount of exercise this week but every little bit helps. Joining in with Hoho and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap College Move In Week Times Two.
College Move In Week Times Two
Sunday- Pool running 60 min
My first foray into pool running was a success! I completed my first session fo Fluid Running ( a guided pool running workout). Full review coming this week stay tuned.
Monday 60 minutes Elliptical
I was up to my ears in laundry and packing but was able to hop onto the elliptical for a quick sweat session and a stretch. Spent the rest of the day packing up and organizing gear for both of the kids. Wow both of my kids are going to college tomorrow!
Tuesday 2.5 mile run
Woke up to find our flight was delayed a few hours so that gave me a little window for a quick run. Great stress reliever for sure. Finally made it to Indy a few hours later.
Wednesday- college move in times two
Lots of carrying boxes, unpacking, organizing and decorating college dorm rooms for both kids. I think that counts as a workout for sure. We were even treated to a tornado warning siren in true mid west fashion. We were all pretty exhausted that night but impressed that we got so much done. My son was completely moved in and my daughter was about 50% done.
Thursday- Orange Theory class 1 hour
Had planned on a run outside but the weather was not cooperating. Decided to hop into an Orange Theory class on campus. Nothing like being the oldest person in class! Ha ha. I had not been to an Orange Theory class in years and ended up liking it way more than I remember. My achilles was also okay during class which was a nice surprise.
Friday- Spent the morning with the kids having brunch, shopping for books and trying super hard not to cry as we pulled away. Both of my babies seem really happy and excited to start their year of school. Makes me feel a little better that they are together this year.
Saturday- 50 min pool running and 60 min hot yoga
After yet another delayed flight, arrived back at home after midnight. I slept in and it was quite toasty by the time I woke up. Opted for another pool running session.
I am quite sure that my new status as an empty nester has not sunk in yet. For now, I am not really sure what to do with myself. Kind of nice and kind of scary at the same time. Well, that’s probably enough for one week!
