Happy birthday to me! Every few years, my birthday actually falls on Mother’s Day, so we have a double celebration.
Sunday – 4.58 miles, walking
I had to plan my whole day, so I did. First, I wanted to take a walk. Mr PugRunner joined me.
Then I wanted to get coffee and pick up breakfast at a donut shop on the beach. From there, we planned to head to our local art museum to see the exhibits and check out the gardens (I have never been) and then maybe find a late lunch/early dinner somewhere.
We accomplished all those things, and even had time for some popcorn and movies before bed.
Monday – 4.20 miles, walking + SSOD Tank Top Toner I
I slept late so I thought I would go do some speedwork not at the beach. It was hot and I was tired, so I just ended up walking instead. Meh.
That evening, I spent some extra time making dinner with our Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics Wild Alaskan salmon. We blackened the fish and put together a Caesar salad platter. It was really delicious and easy too!
Tuesday – 5.67 miles, running + .75 miles, walking
Even though it was muggy, we had a great run. I even went a little longer because it was feeling so good. Yay.
Wednesday – 3.53 miles, walking
On Wednesday, we planned a park day. I did get in a bit of walk, but I ended up running into a neighbor and we spent about 20 minutes chatting. It’s nice to connect in the quiet mornings.
It was good to get out with the kids to explore a bit. We all needed the distraction.
Thursday – 5 miles, running + .67 miles, walking
Steamy and humid meant our run was hard. But we did it, despite the heaviness.
I had to hustle off to my hair appointment
And then A had to take part 1 of his standardized math test. Blech. Not a fun afternoon for him.
Friday – 4.1 miles, walking
I had a hard time getting out of bed again, so I took my time on this walk.
Afterwards, A and I started dismantling the garage. It was time to clean and organize. We made some serious headway before he had to head off to Part 2 of his test, and it felt great.
Mr PugRunner and I had a lunch date, and then we sat by the pool that evening chatting with another neighbor.
Saturday – 9 miles, running + .89 miles, walking
To our surprise, the temperatures dipped again! What? It’s amazing. And it’s even more amazing for running. I was thrilled to finally be back to a long run on Saturday.
The afternoon was a whirlwind. A went across the street for a waterslide party. We finished the garage (it looks amazing). And then we drove down the street to meet my college roommate at the gas station as they were en route to their home in South Florida. It was so good to see her and her family.
I need to back into my strength sessions, but I wasn’t focused this week. The blame is entirely mine on that. I am hopeful to be in a better headspace this week, and get back to it. I also need to get back to reading. I have books – I just haven’t been reading.
How was your week in training?
Anyone else just super distracted and unfocused lately?
