All good things must come to an end, and so does our jetsetting adventure, at least for a little while.
Sunday – rest
Mother’s Day! Because we had been doing so much and I had been so spoiled, I felt bad asking for anything or scheduling anything specific, so I left it up to the rest of the family. We opted for a pretty low-key day.
After a nice breakfast of donuts and bagels, with some beautiful cards and flowers, we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
It was amazing, although perhaps a little too intense for little man.
After that, we met my parents for dinner at a local seafood place, and then went back to our place for ice cream cake.
Monday – rest
Time to get back to real life. Womp womp. It was really hard to walk back into work that Monday and not into the nearest city bagel shop, but the good times can’t last forever.
That night, Mr PugRunner handled karate duties so I could attend some administrative and PTA meetings for little man’s new school. It’s a really bittersweet adventure – I don’t tend to get too emotional about change, but this one is hitting us all hard. Due to zoning, we don’t have much choice in the matter, so it is what it is and we are just going to make the best of it and do everything we can to make it awesome.
Tuesday – 4.5 miles running
I met S for some bridge repeats.
The morning was humid and we were both hating it. I’m glad we did it, but I had a hard time getting my body temperature under control all day. It’s just a reminder to hydrate well and watch my salt intake.
We had our last triathlon club practice that afternoon. We worked on transition and doing a mock run through of the whole thing. It was so cute seeing how far the kids have come over the last few weeks, and I can’t wait to see them in action on the big day.
Wednesday – rest
Wednesdays are turning out to be my quietest day of the week. I’m ok with that.
Thursday – 3.5 miles running, 100 yards swimming, 3 miles cycling
I was feeling a little unmotivated, so I went for a quick, 3.5 mile run. Halfway through, Mr PugRunner texted me to let me know that we had to bring Bentley in to the vet. He’s had some funk going on his ears (but he’s very sensitive to people touching him so it’s been difficult to really assess).
It seems that he had a bit of an ear infection, so he got treatment and medication, and I think we are in good shape. As a reward for behaving so nicely, he got some chicken nuggets.
After school, I brought little man to the pool, were we practiced swimming laps and biking. It was a lovely afternoon together, and I was happy to see him take to the water pretty well after a whole winter out of the pool.
Friday – 275 yards swimming
Yay for lazy-ish Fridays. My big goal for the day was to purchase a bike rack for the car. I’d like to be able to go for couple or family rides in other locations, and there’s just no way for us to transport our bikes at this point. I was successful.
I also purchased a QALO ring. I had been looking at them for a while, but they had a display in the sporting goods store and I decided to go for it. My fingers swell so badly when I run, so the idea of having a silicon ring to wear for races or when I travel on runcations was very appealing. It’s a great solution.
Oh, and there was more time in the pool. Little man did 100 yards, while I went a bit farther. My goggles have been leaking, so it slowed me down just a bit.
Saturday – 4 miles running, 400 yards swimming
Since Mr PugRunner was sleeping, I convinced little man to run a mile with me before continuing on for another three. It was fun to spend that time together, and we had a nice chat while we ran.
After breakfast, we headed over to the pool, and got in some more laps between rain storms.
The rest of the day was spent hanging with friends and just enjoying the beautiful, breezy weather. All the fresh air really did me in, though. I was ready for bed at around 8:30.
Well, that seems much less exciting than the last few weeks. The heat, humidity and drought conditions have made it hard to get outside, but at least the pool is there, and we can get a little breeze on the bikes.
This is the last week of school for the year, so we will be caught up with all the festivities and fun that go along with that. It’s been a wonderful year of 3rd grade, and we will be sorry to say goodbye.
