weekly recap: 3/29 – 4/4

Things went a little better this week than last, as far as running. My runs were spaced out a little more than I prefer, but that’s what comes of a Sunday race.

Sunday – 3.1 miles

First up was the March To Get Screened 5K.

Afterwards, we had a delicious breakfast

and then it was home to chill out.

Monday – rest

I did some last-minute Easter shopping. So exciting.

Tuesday – rest

It was a work day, so no running was to be had. I need to figure out my schedule a little better so that Mr PugRunner and I can both squeeze in our workouts and running. I miss cross training, but I hate the idea of getting up at 4:00 AM to make it to boot camp in time to get home for him to run, and then be up early the next day to squeeze in my run. I will get on top of it. Eventually.

Wednesday – 3.1 miles

The weather was gorgeous, so I decided to hit the bridge after little man went to school. I did two beautiful repeats and then headed down for a little spin on the sand.

It was also time to attempt to go back to karate. We have been out for a few weeks due to little man’s health, but we were glad to resume some sense of normalcy. Baseball will start up for us again this week.

Thursday – rest

Work again. I was pretty tired when I got home, but we found out that little man will be getting an award at school and we wanted to celebrate.

The fair was the perfect thing.

As an added bonus, my parents were there, with my brother-in-law and his family. Little man got to hang out with our niece and nephew, whom he rarely sees, and it was just fabulous all the way around.

Friday – 3.1 miles

Even though I had destroyed a huge sausage sandwich and a waffle cone of soft serve the night before, there is no rest for a training runner, so I dragged my behind out for a run. It went reasonably well.

I showered and got little man together for an Easter Egg Hunt at a friend’s house. It’s such a fun time, and we had a blast.

We picked up Mr PugRunner for lunch, and then it was off to the pool at my parents’ neighborhood for the rest of the afternoon. We would play there for a while and then have pizza when my cousin arrived for Easter weekend. She was going to spend a few nights at our place, so that was going to be fun.

Saturday – rest

No sleeping in for this girl. We had decided to help my mom out by hosting Easter dinner and I had to hit the grocery store for ham and other supplies. It wasn’t an awful trip – we managed to avoid the majority of the crowds.

When we returned, Mr PugRunner and little man had make a batch of Easter knot cookies. I had never had them before and they were quite good.

We took my cousin to lunch on the river, and it was the most perfect weather. We all enjoyed some delicious seafood, including these lobster cups, made with phyllo, gruyere and candied bacon. Nom.

And then? We had to finish coloring eggs!

That night, after readying the Easter baskets and egg hunt, we all sat and watched Interstellar. I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take it, but it was quite brilliant. I don’t think I could watch it again, but I enjoyed it immensely, even if it was almost midnight before I got to bed.

I’m pretty pleased with the week. It was a good mix of fitness, family and fun. My pace was great on the bridge run and even though the weather is getting warmer, I’m happy with how things are going.

There are two 5Ks coming up on my calendar and I am really looking forward to tackling them head on.

How was your week in training?

Do you celebrate Easter? How do you prepare for the big day?

  2. Awww I’m so glad the little one is feeling better, and congratulations to him on his award!

    It seems like yall had a busy week! That is so cool you got to spend time with the little one’s cousins. I grew up far from family and only got to see them on rare occasion, so that is so special!

      There are a few cousins he gets to see a couple of times a year. They are mostly all older than him, but he doesn’t care. I think he prefers the older kids, anyway. I’m glad we get to do it.

      We always have busy weeks – when it seems like things are settling down… WHAM. Something else comes up LOL!

      Hope your week is great!

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Our kids were here for Easter dinner and we had so much fun!

      I was so happy how the fair photo came out. It’s sad that it was only with my iPhone and not my real camera, but the end result was great.

      The lobster cups were ridiculous. I could have eaten the whole plate.

  5. Sounds like a great mix of all good things 🙂
    I can’t wait to celebrate Easter (and all holidays!) with Baby S as she grows 🙂

  7. I’m so impressed with how diligent you are with your runs. I’ve fallen into such a rut.. Ugh. Working on it!
    Looks like you had lots of fun family time this week too! All of the food in this post looks SO GOOD!
    My family is mostly Jewish, though my stepmom is Catholic. So we did lots of celebrating this weekend! Friday was a Seder with my mom, brother, sister-in-law and niece. I got Saturday off to take care of the equine and weekend house type things. Then Sunday was Easter with my dad and the step family! SO. MUCH. EATING.
    Mooo.

      LOL! If I stop, it will be that much harder to start again. And I’ve come so far!!!!

      Our families are Catholic, but my stepdad is Jewish. My mom offered to do a Seder for him, but he didn’t want to this year.

      We ate a lot, too. I look at it as carb loading.

  8. Looks like a great week of running. And how cute, coloring eggs with your guy! I sure miss those days…
