If you do a weekly recap post, this is a great way to check in with other active bloggers for extra support, sharing and accountability!
Guys, it is on like Donkey Kong. School starts this week. We are still getting things going at the new school and I have been rather involved at the ground level with that. In addition, scouting is right around the corner, so I spent time with that.
Sunday – rest
My run got derailed big time by a torrential downpour. It was an absolute mess, and while I have been good about heading out in a sprinkle, this was just too much. I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep.
In the afternoon, we met some friends and their kids at Rebounderz. We bought all the kids four hour passes that included unlimited jumping, bowling, laser tag, a $5 arcade game card and a few other things. The adults hung out with cocktails and appetizers, while the kids jumped and played. It was the most brilliant way to spend a day, and we agreed that we would go ahead and make it a monthly occurrence.
Afterwards, we had dinner together at a pizza place, and went home full of good food and laughter.
Monday – 4 miles, running
Much as I hated it, I rolled out of bed early to make up for my weekend shortcomings. On the plus side, I earned my Pheidippides medal for the Run Rock ‘n’ Roll Summer Strides Virtual Run Series, so that made it a little more fun.
Work was absolutely insane and I was very grateful to get home. We had our first big PTA meeting at a local restaurant, so I was able to meet the wonderful volunteers with whom I will be working over the next year (or two). We have a lot of great ideas, but there is lots of work to be done, too.
Tuesday – 4 miles, running
Back to back runs are never my favorite, but sometimes, they must be done.
Another day of work, and I was glad to come home and just chill with the guys.
Wednesday – rest
Wednesdays have been pretty quiet. I was glad to be able to get some things done around the house.
Thursday – rest
It was an early, early morning for us. We had the Teacher’s Welcome breakfast at the new school, so I had to drop little man and my friend’s house (the school is still technically a construction site!), grab same friend and head over to help serve and pass out all the fun PTA info. We are getting our groove, but we have a good team.
That evening, I had a birthday dinner with some girlfriends. We went to Hawkers, which serves Asian street fare. It was beyond yummy, and now I’m craving roti and meatballs in curry gravy. Sigh.
Friday – 4 miles, running
One more four miler for the week. I can’t imagine why I was a little dehydrated, but I got it done.
Mr PugRunner took us all out for breakfast at Maple Street, and we had some awesome family time.
My friend in the next neighborhood hosted a mom’s back-to-school party that night, and we had a blast with delicious appetizers and cocktails Not even the lightning storm that sprang up could deter us from a fabulous evening.
Saturday – rest
I wasn’t feeling up to too much on Saturday. I had to make one trip to the grocery store, just because our plans changed and little man and I would be hosting a friend and her two daughters for homemade pizza and extra chocolatey dessert. (Mr PugRunner would be heading off to a concert).
Prior to that, we went to little man’s best friend’s birthday party. It was tons of Lego, pizza, games and candy, and obviously, everyone had a blast.
We really couldn’t have asked for a better day.
I confess. I am overwhelmed and slightly scattered. I know that things will fall right into place as soon as school starts, so I am just holding on until then. And yes, I would like to get back to the gym big time. I miss boot camp and spin, but I desperately need a more consistent schedule before it happens.
How was your week in training?
Are you experiencing any end of summer craziness?
