Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too.

I did it! I PRed on my Half Marathon. To read the post race report, go to Double Creek Half Marathon Post Race Report 

I was really sore after the race. So I took a couple of days off from running.

Monday, I did manage to make it to Boot Camp class.

Tuesday was my first day back to running. Lil Man and I went down to the river front and got in 5 miles. It wasn't easy, but my legs (for the most part) felt decent. I averaged a 9:33 pace with the jogger so I was pleased.

Wednesday was cross training day. I've decided that on X-training day that I want to get at least 45 minutes (an hour would be idea) each time. I really want to burn some fat. So I'm going to try to ramp up my cardio, along with making sure that I do strength training 2-3 times per week.

Thursday, I ran a couple of miles at the gym. And then I did a group fitness class. We used the Power Plates machine. I'm still not too sure about that. Although, I'm starting to feel some soreness today.

Today, I ran trails. The temps were nice. It was a really nice early morning 5 mile run. We got in some really nice hills.

I have a 9 miler on the schedule for the LR this weekend. Overall, it was a nice fitness week.

I have a giveaway going on right now. I love Body Glide, so I'm sharing some with my readers. If you'd like to enter to win, click Body Glide Giveaway
