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.
Ehhhhh. I am holding strong, and staying on track, but I am looking forward to the end of the year. The holidays are a great time of year, and I just really want to sit back and enjoy them with family and friends.
But there is work to be done.
Sunday – rest
After a fabulous weekend in South Florida, we had to say our goodbyes and make the drive home. I was really excited to get back to the pugs and try to get the house tidies and set for the week ahead.
Monday – 6 miles, running
Since the weather has been nicer later in the morning, I have been able to run after little man goes to school, rather than before. It’s been a nice break in the wake up department.
I had nothing else planned other than laundry and karate for the day.
Tuesday – Power Yoga Basics, 60 minutes
My friend’s bagel store finally announced its soft open, and believe me, I was there to get some yummy, New York style bagels. They were delicious!
Afterwards, I had the opportunity to take a class at Big Fish Power Yoga. It’s been a while since I spent some time on the mat and this was very much the class I didn’t know I needed. I’ve always been a bit opposed to hot yoga (low blood pressure does not agree with overheating) but I never felt dizzy or woozy. There was no music and the focus on form and getting deep into the poses and positions meant there was very little “playing.” I liked that it was a bit more structured, and I hope that I can work it into my schedule to go again.
Wednesday – 6 miles, running
Another good run, although it got colder again. Brrr.
In the evening, I had a photo session with the St. Augustine Moms Blog. We went into downtown and I can’t wait to see the head shots and group photos from the event. We called it a wrap with a walk around downtown and sangria.
Thursday – rest
I thought about going to the gym, but… didn’t.
I started putting up some holiday decorations and did a huge bunch of work for the upcoming Mother Son Glow Party. More on that to come.
In the evening, our Scout den joined with another den to work on the float for the Christmas Parade on Saturday. The scouts worked hard to cut, shape, and and paint the pieces of the Pinewood Derby float. Power tools for everyone.
Friday – 6 miles, running
I knew I probably wouldn’t get much running done over the weekend, so I opted for another six miles.
I got some things done around the house and then reported to school to start decorating for the Glow Party. It’s our big Mother Son event, and with great music and black lights, it has turned out to be very much anticipated and very well attended.
We got it all done, and by 6:00, we were able to kick back and enjoy the night. The theme was 80s, and I think we did a great job with the style.
I stuck around to help with clean up, and ended up having an awful night of sleep.
Saturday – rest
We had to report to the float staging area pretty early. We got the car decorated the Scouts loaded in. At 9:00, despite the dreary weather (rain!), we were off along the parade route. I don’t think I’ve ever been part of an actual parade before, but it was pretty fun to walk, wave and call good wishes to everyone.
When it was over, we met up with my parents for lunch, and then little man went home with them for the rest of the weekend. They hadn’t had a sleepover in a while and they had some fun holiday events to do with him.
So things were a little easier, and will hopefully continue in that vein. My sinus issues are much better, but they have been replaced by some different health concerns. It’s nothing major but it is very much cramping my style. I am hoping to get a handle on that asap.
How was your week in training?
