What. A. Week. We started strong and sort of descended into madness. That tracks for this time of year, right?
Sunday – 3.54 miles, walking
I didn’t set the alarm in the morning but still managed to get up and get my day going fairly early. It’s just habit by now.
A came home from his last Troop campout of the year. He’ll be going on one more bigger campout over break, and he’s excited about that.
Monday – 5.03 miles, beach + bridge repeats
It was windy and hazy at the beach, but I didn’t mind. It’s all character building, right? For some reason, the beach was super crowded, and the tide was high enough to block the crossover on the jetty, so there wasn’t as much walking space. Instead, I satisfied myself with some sidewalks in the adjacent neighborhood.
Tuesday – 5.00 miles, running
J wasn’t feeling well so I went out to run on my own. It’s nowhere near as fun, and I am on a tight schedule on Tuesdays.
I had to rush over to get Taco prepped for his Tuesday and then on to the rest of the day. Tuesdays are always busy.
Wednesday – 4.39 miles, walking
Another foggy day. I don’t understand where it’s all coming from.
I worked on some more orders, delivered others and finally finished decorating the tree.
Thursday – 7 miles, running + 1 mile, walking
We moved our long run to Thursday to accommodate for our race on Saturday. J wasn’t feeling great, so we went for seven. It worked out great.
Mr PugRunner and I went to lunch and did a few errands in town. We haven’t been down to see the lights yet, but it was nice to see some of the decorated buildings from Nights of Lights.
Friday – 3.67 miles, walking
TGIF! I started the day with my walk.
The morning plan was to meet up with J for “awkward vintage Christmas tree photos.” Apparently, it was a thing for women to pose awkwardly with their decorated trees back in the day, and it’s a trend to replicate the process. We got dressed up in vintage dresses, with hair and makeup, and gloves and faux cocktails. It was hilarious and so fun. The photos came out great, too!
After an incredibly long day, we met up with some friends for dinner and drinks. We were too involved in the conversation to take pictures (whoops), but it was great.
Saturday – Gingerbread Man 5K
Oh, yeah! Race day! J and I headed over to SilverLeaf to check out the 10th year of this super fun run. I’ll provide a race report on Wednesday, but it as a blast, and we did great.
In the meantime, A spent the morning volunteering at his dojo’s black belt test. As a black belt, himself, he has the opportunity to help out at the tests in which he is not participating. He’ll get his turn for his second dan, soon.
We went to lunch, did a little shopping, and then I decompressed for a bit before heading out to our friends’ Christmas Vacation Party. It’s adults only, themed, and costumes are encouraged. It’s been too long since we got to celebrate.
Ok. This week, I straight up have to finish Christmas shopping. I’ve been… negligent at best. Whoops.
We are also going to be working on the 12 Days of Fitmas this week! I hope you join this crew of amazing bloggers for 12 days of exercises! We’d love to have you participate!
How was your week in training? Any fun events on your calendar?
