How can it be two weeks until DONNA? It’s been said before, but the hay is pretty much in the barn. Now we just sort of have to sit back and ride it out. You know how great I am at sitting and waiting.
Sunday – 3.44 miles, running
Obviously, this Sunday was nowhere near as fun as last Sunday, with our sloth visit. Womp womp.
But I still got in some miles.
A and I went to a local park to scope some things out for his upcoming Eagle Project, and then we got lunch. I was really craving the baked potato from Woodpecker’s. It hit the spot.
Monday – 4.31 miles, walking
I miss the beach!!! It was just too cold and too windy to risk it. Safety must always come first.
Even though it was a day off, we didn’t have much of anything planned. A wanted to hang with his buddies and fish, and that was fine. He also had the day off from clarinet and karate, so that was nice for him.
Tuesday – 5.01 miles, running + .64 miles, walking
Tuesdays are for running.
Tuesdays are also Taco days. I think the cold temperatures made their mark on my mini horse friend: he was super chill and cooperative, and I was grateful for that.
Wednesday – 3.45 miles, walking
I slept in and still froze my butt off. My fingers and toes do not appreciate it at all.
Once I was done, I ran errands, and started getting ready for our weekend camping adventure.
It was also report card day. A scored Honor Roll again!
Thursday – 10.46 miles, running + .86 miles, walking
Due to me being away this weekend, we did our long run on Thursday. It went well-isn. Obviously, it was warmed up a bit, which was nice. But I think we are ready for our half marathon.
From there, I had a bunch to do: there are always last minute things to grab for camping, and then Mr PugRunner wanted t orange lunch together. we tried the new Culver’s by us, and it was really god.
That evening, I attended my first book club. The book was “Finding Dorothy” by Elizabeth Letts, about the wife of Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum. I liked the book (the story was good, but the writing wasn’t great), and I made mini “Char-cup-peries” in honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day!
Friday – 3.97 miles, walking
Was it warmed up? A little. I got in some miles in my new Skirt Sports Lotta Breeze skirt! Visit their site and use code SHAREIT15 to save 15% on yours!
The rest of the day was dedicated to packing and loading up the car. We headed to the Daytona International Speedway for a Scouts Weekend campout.
Saturday – 2.67 miles, walking
Saturday was somewhat of a blur. I got in my walk (with one mile towards my ongoing streak), and then just lost myself in the day. It was freezing (in the 40s) and misty and windy, so everything was just blah. However, the Scouts loved the chance to check out the race track, so that was good.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
The end of the week was pretty hectic. I didn’t have much WIFI while camping, and it was so cold that I didn’t bother too much with my phone since it meant letting go of my handwarmers.
Now let’s finish off this training cycle!
How was your week in training? Are you ready for your next race?
