With Mr PugRunner gone most of this week, my runs were more than a little lacking. And to be honest, the high winds weren’t exactly enticing me to get out there and go. I did my best with the time I had, and it ended up being ok.
Sunday – 10 miles
S and I decided that we would each take on 10 miles in our respective neighborhoods at the same time. Only problem was that she chickened out in the wind and I was already a mile in when she told me about it. Boo. But I was out there, and determined to stick it out. I was miserable with the raw wind, but better to have it done than hanging over my head all week.
Monday – body circuit, 60 minutes
I was a little tight for class, but it was a good one, all the same. I got a lot of arm and shoulder work in. I love the burn the comes with it.
Tuesday – rest
Nothing major to report. We had dinner out with friends and little man got the cutest face painting.
Wednesday – 4 miles
When I coming down the stairs to head out for my run, there was a huge bang and the whole house seemed to shake. It almost sounded like a car had grazed the corner of the building. It turned out that the spring on the garage door had snapped. On the plus side, I was home and inside when it happened. The con was that I had to scramble to find house keys and get the door disengaged so it would lose. Mr PugRunner said he would deal with it when he got home that night, so I went about my day.
Starting with a nice four miler.
Mr PugRunner met us at karate and surprised little man. It was nice to have our family reunited.
Thursday – 1.75 miles, Couch to 5K Week 2, Day 1
It was still really windy, but it had warmed up enough that I was able to get little man out for another day of training.
He did great.
Friday – rest
It was a big day. I had to skip body circuit, but it was so very worth it. Little man had his Living Museum presentation at school. I can’t imagine there are many things more adorable than a bunch of second graders in period costumes, rattling off facts about historical figures.
Little man’s character was Paul Revere.
He did an amazing job on his presentation materials and his speech. We were so proud of him and his hard work.
I had to go home to deal with the garage repairman, while Mr PugRunner and Papa Bear headed off on a trip to South Florida for a hockey game.
Little man wanted to celebrate his accomplishments with a Happy Meal, and so we picked up dinner and ate while watching Kung Fu Panda 2 on TV. We both loved it.
Saturday – rest
Saturday was crazy. Little man and I attended a surprise baby shower, and then I had to run some errands with my mom, while helping with the cover up of a big birthday surprise for Papa Bear. I think we were all exhausted (in a good way) by the time everyone got home.
Welp. The Glass Slipper Challenge is in mere days. DAYS. The good news is that it’s going to be so much fun to have a weekend in Disney.
The bad news?
I tweaked my hip flexor when I tripped on something in the garage. It’s not painful, exactly, but it’s complaining. I am grounded from running and working out for the week,m and spending lots of time icing and resting. I’m already pretty cranky about it, but I’m trying to keep the big picture in mind. Hopefully, everything will be ok for the races this weekend, so keep your fingers crossed.
How was your week in workouts?
Any big races coming up on the horizon?
