And just like that, school is out and it’s summer vacation. It doesn’t really feel too much like summer because our schedule is crazy packed. Correction: A’s schedule is crazy packed. We are just along for the ride.
- Cardio: 3.88 miles, walking
Oh, Sunday. I was a little emotional this week. Last Sunday of middle school, right?
But we didn’t have time to dwell on that! We had a birthday celebration planned for our friend K at the Secret Tiki Temple! If you are ever in town, make reservations to go. It is the most fun experience ever. Guests must have a password to get in, and from there, it’s just all good times with fun Chinese appetizers and outrageously delicious tiki cocktails.
We let our server choose our drinks, and he nailed it every single time (the menu doesn’t show ingredients, so you just have to trust the process).
- Cardio: Memorial Day 5K
I will share my race report this week or next, but I got up to head out to this favorite 5K on my own. It was miserably hot and humid, and while it was not my best time, it was not a personal worst. With how much I’ve been struggling lately, I will take those wins.
The rest of the day was pretty chill. We watched movies at home and grilled burgers and hot dogs for dinner. Nothing fancy.
- Cardio: 6.32 miles, running + walking
Not much to say. We went. We ran. We walked.
Ok, Ok. Hear me out. We went back to the Secret Tiki Temple with the PTSO. I didn’t plan it that way, but I certainly didn’t mind. My liver did, but it’s not often that I drink a lot of cocktails, so I’ll give myself a pass. We had a beautiful night, celebrating the end of the year.
- Cardio: 4.16 miles, walking
Was morning hard? Yes. It was. But it was Global Running Day so I had to get up and get moving!
I walked, and then ran a little on the beach. Yay me.
Thanks to Carianne for putting together this amazing collage of all the amazing blogs folks who ran together virtually this day!
- Cardio: 5.92 miles, running + walking
Effort has not been the best, so today, I forced myself to push it. I was proud of my effort, and need to keep it up.
Happy last day of school to A. Here are his first day and last day of 8th grade photos. I can’t believe how much he has matured over just one school year.
We took him to Top Golf and for milkshakes at The Yard to celebrate.
- Cardio: 4.72 miles, walking
Happy National Donut Day! You know this is one of my favorite days!
Check out all my favorite donuts here.
After lunch, we went to our friend’s beach rental, and just spent the day chilling with the families. We celebrated the end of school at an awesome oceanfront restaurant and called it a perfect day.
- Cardio: 6.94 miles. running + walking
Another hot solo run. I gritted my teeth and got it done.
My parents had us over for lunch and we spent a lovely afternoon with them. We are so grateful that they are so close.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
Nothing super new or exciting, I guess. While I’m certainly failing at cross training, I am drinking a lot more water than usual. Yay.
We don’t have major plans for the next few months. A is volunteering at karate camp for two weeks, and then has his Scouts camp and band camp. He also has an online course to complete this summer. I’m pondering some local things to do. I feel like I want to start adventuring again 🙂
How was your week in training? Do you have any summer plans? Ever been to a tiki bar?
