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!
I feel like things are hitting the groove. I don’t know that I have ever been busier, but the more I have on my plate, the more I seem to be able to accomplish, so I’m working with the momentum.
Sunday – rest
After Tour De Pain, I was more than happy to just chill out and do absolutely nothing.
Monday – rest
This was little man’s first day riding the bus to school. Everything went rather smoothly, so the week kicked off to a great start.
After work and school, we got little man to karate. He had tested into the advanced class before the start of summer, took a few months off to get a breather and picked up right where he left off. He is with older students and the nature of the class is a little more serious, which he seems to be enjoying.
Tuesday – 4.5 miles, running
With a morning event at school, I had to be up extra early to run, but got in 4.5 solid miles.
After that, I helped set up a breakfast for the Kindergarten parents, dropped off some info for parent volunteers, and got myself to work.

Wednesday – rest
Wednesdays are mostly quiet days, which I am loving.
I stayed home while Mr PugRunner took little man to karate. I just had way too much to finish up, and he hadn’t been to one of little man’s new classes. Little man had his first turn with a bo staff, and did an incredible job.
Thursday – 4.5 miles, running
Much as I miss the extra morning sleep, I am enjoying the sunrise runs again.
I met a dear friend for breakfast at a new, local cafe, and we had a great meal and chat. We’ve both been so busy with kids and school and life, and I was glad we were able to carve out some time to hang.
The name of the day was errands, and I got all those done, before little man came home. Since they really haven’t been getting much homework, he had a playdate before dinner and then one after. He’s also been riding his skateboard a ton – it’s his preferred method of getting around the neighborhood.
Friday – rest
In the morning, we had a meeting with most of our PTA Team. We were darn productive, making signs and organizing to-do lists for our first round of upcoming events. I think we are in pretty good shape.
When I got home, I went on a bit of a cleaning spree. I was going out of town and wanted everything in decent shape for the boys while I was gone.
Saturday – 7 miles, running
I woke up late and was really nervous about hitting the road, but the weather had dropped to 74 degrees and thick clouds hid the sun. I had planned to do five and hoped for six, but for the first time in forever, I felt incredible and strong, so I went for seven.
It was a huge confidence boost that I desperately needed.
Then it was off to Orlando! Due to a conflict, I had been unable to join Meghan for her birthday celebration a few weeks back, so it was time to make it up to her!
Over 40 local restaurants and chefs and more than 20 beverage vendors were on hand, serving tastings of some of their finest cuisine. There was a silent auction, a giving tree and several other fun events for the party-goers.
It’s not often I am able to get dressed up and attend events like this, so I soaked up every moment. Plus, I got to spend time with one of my favorite people.
This week will be interesting. Not only is today the solar eclipse, but we have some fun things happening across the board. I am considering the addition of some races to my calendar for September, so I need to see how scheduling those will work.
How was your week in training?
What are your plans for the eclipse?
