Fitness Snapshots (Sweaty Selfies)

I’m going to have fun with today’s Friday Five topic (Fitness Snapshots) and share photos of my five favorite fitness activities. Don’t worry, I promise they aren’t all sweaty selfies! I’d love it if you’d share your favorite on Pinterest! 

Fitness Snapshots

1.Running. First and foremost, I’m a runner

This picture captures how thrilled I was to finally run
a good Lawyers Have Heart 10K.

This picture captures the simple pleasure of a post-race beer.

2. Cycling.  Cycling with my true love is my second love.

This is one of my favorite cycling pictures,
and not just because I’m at the beach. 🙂

I think this one was taken near the beach too.

3. Spinning. I never would have guessed that I would like spinning
–let alone love it–but I do!

4. Weight Training. I also enjoy my weight training workouts. 

It’s hard to take a selfie while you’re working out with weights,
but I have this collage from a hotel gym in New York City.

5. Planks. Maybe planks are not really one of my favorite things to do,
but since I learned that a weak core was the source of my nagging ITB issues,
I try to do several sets of different plank variations at least a few times a week. 


As if holding a plank isn’t hard enough,
try doing it while you try to perfect your form and take a picture!

I wish I had noticed that my foot was askew!

 Don’t you love this #runner shirt?! The fact that my blogging friend Carrie got it for me from the awesome Pavement Runner makes it that much more perfect. 😉 

I can’t wait to see the other fitness snapshots people share in the Friday Five link up sponsored by Eat Pray Run DCMar on the Run and You Signed Up for What!

Do you take #sweatyselfies?

  5. You nailed my top favorite workouts, too! I was also surprised by how much I loved spin when I first started going- it has a similar endorphin affect to running, I think!

    I’m visiting from the Friday Five link up. I did the Lawyers Have Heart 10k this year too 🙂 it was my first race over a 5k distance. I really enjoyed it. I’ve been trying to do more planks to strengthen my core muscles too.
