Certification Exam Week- Weekly Recap

Last week was a busy week for me. I knew I was going to be backing off on my exercise mileage because I was preparing for a huge certification exam. Luckily my hard work paid off and I am now certified quality engineer.

I also rowed the half marathon distance on a rowing machine for the first time too. The workout helped me reach the million meter club at Concept2. I’ve only been keeping a logbook since 2010 and half the meters were since this May!

Other highlights of the week included the Santa Shuffle (a 3 mile race pushing the double stroller), and taking our daughter indoor climbing for the first time.

I’ve also been keeping up with the Runners world run streak. In my own idea of the rules a mile walked counts too!
