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!
Sunday – 3,5 miles, running
I don’t usually feel badly about not getting in my goal amount of miles, but for some reason, Saturday’s run wasn’t fulfilling. I went out for another 3.5 miles, just to get it out of my system.
After that, I snagged a quick shower, loaded little man into the car and drove up to my parents’ house for breakfast. We visited for a bit and then Papa Bear and I took little man to see Thor: Ragnorak. Yes, it was that good.
We were glad to get home – Mr PugRunner was on his way back from Miami, so we wanted to have dinner and everything all settled by the time he got home. It was great to be reunited.
Monday – rest
Monday was just busy, busy, busy. The weather has been wreaking havoc with Mr PugRunner’s sinuses, so he isn’t operating at full capacity. Work was hectic, and I ended up getting stuck a little late, but it was a good day in spite of it all.
Karate was great, too. Little man will test for his next belt next month, which is pretty exciting. One step closer to his black belt!
That evening, I had a scouts leadership meeting, which also ran a little long. We did cover a lot, though, so that was incredibly productive.
Tuesday – 7 miles, running
A newcomer joined us on our run, and it was fantastic. I love seeing our little group go, and I hope we can maintain it!
Another day of work, and then after dinner, I headed to my friend’s house to finalize plans for Friday’s Glow Party. We were in great shape, but just needed to touch base on last minute details.
Wednesday – rest
It was my last day of work for the week and I was grateful for that. I had so much to get done.
We had planned to go to karate, but we had a last minute invite to a media preview for the upcoming Marvel Universe Live: Age of Heroes. I thought it would be fun for little man to get a behind the scenes look at some of his favorite superheroes, and it ended up being a cool night.
Even if he wouldn’t pose for a picture with Black Cat and Black Widow.
The show will take place January 19 – January 21 at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Tickets are currently on sale via Ticketmaster. If you haven’t been to a Marvel Universe Live show, now is the time, especially with the inclusion of Dr. Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy crew. We went for little man’s birthday two years ago and it was truly a spectacle to be seen.
Thursday – 7.4 miles, running
This time, our run was made up of four people. It was so easy and so relaxed, and our group is getting along so great!
But then it was time to get to work. I had offered to help my co-chair with a Vocabulary Parade costume for her son so she could run the last errands for the party. And then we had our last Cub Scouts meeting before the Thanksgiving Break. The next few meeting are going to be incredibly fun and exciting, so I am looking forward to that.
We were so busy that little man had to take a bit of a rest with his almost-14-year-old pug.
Friday – rest
Our very first Vocabulary Parade was scheduled for the morning, and we were all so excited. I took little man over to school so we could score a parking spot, help the teacher with the kids’ costumes if they needed assistance and help decorate the front. The parade itself was awesome – the creativity was absolutely over the top and we had a blast!
Our PTA group parted ways until lunch – we each had to unload items at the school, pick up different items and grab something to eat. After lunch, we got into it.
We were very fortunate to have some awesome volunteers and staff members who helped us realize our vision. The end result was absolutely incredible. We heard nothing but raves from moms and sons and we were so thrilled that we could offer such a fun experience!
Saturday – rest
There was just no way I could drag myself out of bed on Saturday morning. Between the two huge blisters on the sides of both my big toes, and the general exhaustion, I needed a day off. We all slept in a little, and then went to a fundraising event at a nearby skate park.
It was really cool, and it was good for little man to break out of his comfort zone a little.
We got to watch some of the Miami Hurricanes game at lunch – our team is now 10-0! It’s amazing and I am so glad to see some of the glory days being recaptured!
Less than a week until the Space Coast Half. The weather is looking decent, so I’m excited about that. My only concern is that the ever fluctuating temperatures lead to a little bit of an upset tummy for me, so I’m hoping to get that under control by Sunday. Fingers crossed!
How was your week in training?
Have you ever been to a glow party?
