So May-hem is just about over and June is here. It has been a heavy week.
- Cardio: 4.29 miles, walking
Good morning, and rise and shine.
A got a ride back from camp, while I went over to the middle school to help stake all the congratulations signs for the 8th graders. We had almost 200 signs that needed to be assembled and planted, and it was steamy hot. Fortunately, there was tons of help, so it didn’t take too long.
- Cardio: 4.92 miles, running + walking
I didn’t have time for the bridge or beach today, which was a huge bummer. It is what it is.
Let’s admire the new kicks: the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22. I went with the men’s version this time because I couldn’t resist that neon color way.
And then I got my nails done.
A started training in earnest for his new job: assistant teacher as his karate dojo. He turned in his availability schedule for the rest of the year, and I’m so proud he is fearlessly embarking on this journey.
- Cardio: 7.4 miles, running + walking
It’s really summer for here, and our pace reflects that. Yuck.
It was Student Appreciation Week at the school, so I went in to help hand out Tootsie Pops to all the kids at lunch.
I also snagged an impromptu dinner out with these lovelies. It was so good to see them.
- Cardio: 4.97 miles, walking
After the events of Tuesday, I did go for my walk, but I didn’t take any photos.
I spent most of the day writing emails to various senators, congresspeople and representative. There have been over 200 mass shootings in 2022. Something has to change.
- Cardio: 4.64 miles, running + walking
Another day. I struggled.
In other news, I registered to be a pollworker in our district. I am annoyed with myself for always just sitting by and not getting involved. No more excuses.
I volunteered again at the middle school. This time, we handed out popsicles to all the students. It was comforting to be in the building.
That evening, A had the opportunity to play at his first high school football game. I cannot even tell you what a welcoming and positive environment it was. I think we all needed that and it was a great introductory experience for A.
- Cardio: 4.66 miles, walking
Mr PugRunner and I went to see Top Gun: Maverick. I was not expecting to really, deeply, truly love it. Honestly, it was incredible, one of the best sequels I’ve seen, and I can’t wait to go again. Was it better than the original? Almost. See it. Seriously.
- Cardio: 7.33 miles. running + walking
- Yoga: hip opener flow
It was an ok run. J was coming off a breathing test so we just listened to our bodies, and did what felt best. The humidity here is now so high that we have to be extra careful.
Our planned lunch got canceled, so we hung out at the house instead. In the evening, we went to our local wine bar for drinks and apps. I finally got to try their wine slushee, which was nothing short of incredible.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
Friends, I am tired. So very tired. Things are heavy and sad and I just can’t shake that weight. I am starting to venture back into short yoga flows – the pugs object so that’s always fun. I’ll see if I can get video when they are being extra dramatic.
How was your week in training? See any good movies? Any plans for the long weekend? Tell me something good?
