We are now into January and the consistent routine is back. Mostly. A started back to school, and Mr PugRunner’s work schedule shifted back to a state of normalcy.
Sunday – 7.33 miles, running + 2.11 miles, walking
J and I put off our New Year’s long run til Sunday. It was ugly and difficult, but we just listened to our bodies, and got it done. Even if it wasn’t exactly what we hoped, we stuck with the consistent routine.
Did I spent the rest of the day in pajamas, reading? Absolutely, I did. It was World Introvert’s Day, and I was there for it.
Monday – 4.1 miles, walking
I skipped the beach today, but it was for a very good reason.
It was MEGHAN DAY! Due to life, Meghan and I haven’t seen each other since Safety Harbor, and I was so happy to give her huge hugs. We had tacos, and margaritas, did a little shopping, and talked and planned. It was perfect.
Tuesday – 5.01 miles, running + .66 miles, walking
And just like that, we were back to our regular running schedule. It was cold again, so I picked tights over shorts. It’s a rare thing.
From there, I had a Taco Tuesday. Taco had an appointment with the farrier, so that changed things up for the day.
Wednesday – 3.95 miles, walking
It was a quiet Wednesday. We all sort of “slept in” a little, but that was no excuse to skip a nice walk.
Since it was A’s last day of winter break, I treated him and his buddy to lunch at his favorite Korean fried chicken place. The boys loved it.
I wanted to take him to see Spiderman: No Way Home, but with cases up, I decided to skip it. One day, we will be back to the movie theater. Just not yet.
Thursday – 5.01 miles, running + .87 miles, walking
Back to school! A did great waking up with his alarm, getting ready and heading out the door. He’s super responsible for his age, and I’m grateful for it.
J and I met for our run, and that went well, too.
That evening, a few ladies and I went to Board & Brush for a sign painting outing. I have done this before, but it’s really a fun activity, and I am so happy with the new sign for my kitchen.
Friday – 3.17 miles, walking
Up and at ’em again! I only had time for a quick walk because I was meeting up with my parents to help them move a new cabinet.
We had breakfast, I made the assist, and they gifted me with their entry way table in exchange. It was perfect because I had been looking for a piece to create a coffee bar in the kitchen, and while this wasn’t exactly what I wanted, it would serve the purpose.
Obviously, I spent the rest of the day painting my acquisition and getting things moving. I’ll share when I have all the artwork in place.
Saturday – 10.37 miles, + 1.26 miles, walking
Much as we didn’t want to get up and moving, J and I headed out for our ten mile long run. This was the day we needed to practice with fueling, and we both opted for some Honey Stinger salted caramel waffles. I ate half before the run, and half at mile seven, and that worked well.
For dinner, I wanted to try a new place called Silkies Chicken & Champagne Bar. It rated #2 for Champagne Bars in the country, and sounded amazing! We all had fabulous biscuits, chicken, and different champagne cocktails and mimosas. The vibe was chill, the food divine, and the drinks so fun.
The consistent routine is working well in 2022. I am person who enjoys a little spontaneity, but I prefer some semblance of structure.
I have been a rockstar with my water drinking. Pretty much every day, it’s been the first thing I drink.
I will get back to strength and stretching next week. This week had too many moving parts to fit it all in, and I’m ok with that.
Reading has been a huge accomplishment this week. I finished A Court of Wings & Ruin (Sarah J. Maas), Finding Dorothy (Elizabeth Letts) for my upcoming book club, and Missing Molly (Natalie Barelli). I also joined a virtual book club, and that pick is arriving today: The Hour of the Witch (Chris Bohjalian). I can’t wait!
In the movie world, we did rent Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and that was fantastic.
How was your week in training? Have you been to a champagne bar? Made a sign? Do you like routine or do you make it up as you go?
