Fitness Friday

Workout 4miles 35mins 10am....HOT and HUMID...took sleep over a cool run.

Welcome to Fitness Friday! GO and visit Jill at Life...As I See It and meet new bloggers.

Today for Fitness Friday I share an activity that hopefully won't lose a few viewers. I know I have some Vegans and Vegitarian followers so please if you are offended skip this post!

Something that Brian and I do throughout the summer is prepare for hunting season. It actually ends up being a great arm workout!
I have shot bow for years now. I grew up target shooting with my dad. (that actually is his old target). I was so good I pierced its ears when it asked for earrings!!

I am such a country girl my bow is pink camo, the arrows have pink tips, the arm protector is pink and the case is pink camo!

I shot about 15times last night and my left arm is feeling it. But it was actually pretty easy even after a whole year of not shooting! I surprised Bri with my accuracy!!! :)

What is something fun you do that also gives your muscles a workout?

Hopped on over from Jill's Blog Hop. I live in a town of hunters, but don't hunt myself. My cross training is more like Yoga.

However, I do love your pink camo bow!

Hey! I learned how to shoot a bow just a few days ago! Could never really do the hunting thing though!!

I'm a visitor from Jill's blog hop! I am new to running and blogging and I love making new friends!

I've slept in many of times and had to cut a run short because of it! Oh well:)

Stopping by from Jill's hop. Love the pink camo. I suck at archery, but I imagine it is a good arm workout.

Hopping over on the blog hop!

Cute pink camo bow! I wonder if my BIL's girlfriend knows they exist? She would love it!

Today I was at the rock gym with my husband - I don't get to do it as often as I would like - but it certainly gives a workout to some different muscles!

Hiking. My family loves to go hiking and the workout can be great.

I sent you a friend request on DM. Thanks for linking up with FF!

Question. How did you add your race info to the Race Schedule widget? I found the widget but can't figure out how to add my info. Thanks!

Nice! I used to shoot a bow and once even shot an elk. It was such good lean meat. My bow was not pink though. I still have the bow, I just haven't got it out since I had kids.
