Well, after a week of frosty temperatures, I think summer is really here. I can’t say I’m thrilled. The humidity and heat returned quite suddenly, and we’ve been going back and forth from that to awful squalls and storms. There’s just so winning.
Sunday – 2 miles, walking
Happy Easter! We started the day by taking Luna for a super long walks. She’s a high-energy puppy and loves long walk days.
The bunny came!
We had zero formal plans for Easter. It was nice. We made and enjoyed brunch with more Peeps cocktails.
And then we picked at leftovers while we watched Godzilla vs. Kong on the couch. Maybe it’s not the most Easter-y of Easter movies, but we liked it.
Monday – 4.16 miles, walking
Since the winds had died down, I went back tot the bridge, hoping for some speedwork. I got halfway through my warmup when I realized that my ankle was really not in the mood. Bummed, I gave myself a break and decided to walk instead. I did get in a few strides on the pier. Better luck next time.
Monday was a whirlwind from that point on. So much to do, so few hours in a day. Sigh.
Tuesday – 5 miles, running + .61 miles, walking
My ankle was feeling a little better, and I was pleased that this run was decent.
Wednesday – 3.74 miles, walking
Happy Wednesday! We didn’t have much going on, and that was fine. I tried to get some work done, but that was the extent of it.
My walk was one of the highlights of the day. After all, it was National Walking Day.
Thursday – 5.35 miles, running, .51 miles, walking + 2.26 miles, hiking
I messed up my intervals so ended up running a little long. That’s ok. It was worth it.
Can we get three cheers for hiking day? We have been wanting to go back to Sally’s Ice Cream in Flagler Beach, so I found the Betty Steflik Memorial Preserve, nearby. The main “trail” is a boardwalk over the marsh, and it was just lovely.
We did the trek, and then walked a few more blocks to get our ice cream.
Then back we went. We wanted to call it an early night, since A had to get up at 6:15. The fresh air helped us all get to sleep.
Friday – 4.48 miles, walking
I sort of, kind of slept in a little, and then went for a nice walk. A had state testing, so Mr PugRunner took him, his friend, and her dad to get donuts, and then dropped them at the exam. I have nothing nice to say about that.
When I picked them up, it was time to kick things into high gear. We had lunch as a family and then we dropped A off for another camping trip. I am so very grateful for camping in these times. For some reason, I was just straight up exhausted, so we picked up dinner from Food Truck Friday and watched Irresistable (amazing political satire), before calling it a night.
Saturday – 10 miles, running + 1.4 miles, walking
In some ways, I felt like this run was a bit oof a failure. I wanted to go for 11 miles, but once I got out there, I wasn’t feeling it. Womp womp. I ran three miles on my own, then picked up J for the duration, and we even mixed up our route.
Even with that, by mile nine, I was just about done. We agreed that we would stop running at 10, but would walk a mile for 11. It was a fair compromise, but I was still a little bummed. My consolation is that I don’t have a half on the horizon, so 10 miles is just fine.
We took advantage of some child-free time to do some shopping for A’s upcoming 13th birthday, and went to a new-to-us brewery for the most incredible lunch.
Have you ever seen such a gorgeous salad?
When we came home, Mr
Not a bad week. I do need to get back to reading, and I’ve let the house kind of go stagnant, so I need to work on those things.
We are going to mix up the run schedule a bit this week, due to weekend commitments. While it’s not ideal, we will make it work.
