This week started with a race and ended with a 20 hour band-a-thon! Whew! I’m wiped out! Are you ready? Let’s do this!
- Cardio: ZOOMA Amelia Island 12K, running + walking
As you know, Meghan and I ran the ZOOMA Amelia Island 12K on Sunday morning. I am aiming for a race report on Wednesday (hoping our race photos are ready!).
Long story short, it was a lovely morning.
After we cleaned up and loaded the car, we celebrated at brunch.
And then made our way to our respective homes. It was a wonderful, whirlwind weekend.
- Cardio: 4.13 miles, running + walking
Guess who got to go to the beach? This girl!
It was much-needed. The kids had the day off from school, and A had a fundraiser for Scouts first thing in the morning. I dropped him off first, and then took care of my miles.
He took his job very seriously. He hasn’t been able to spend much time with Scouts due to marching band, so I was glad he could get some service hours with his troop.
- Cardio: 3.15 miles, walking
- Cardio: 6.11 miles, running + walking
This run felt fabulous and I am so grateful for it.
I finally started making some progress on my Halloween costume. I am going as Anne Bolyen, inspired by Six. My original costume did not work, but I think this one will be better for me. It’s not going to be quite as shiny, but the point will get across. I also learned how to dye fabric on the stove and I think this is going to be cute.
- Cardio: 3.36 miles, walking
I had a lovely morning walk.
And then I had to hustle to my brow appointment. It’s honestly so relaxing and I love the results.
- Cardio: 5.68 miles, running + walking
Strong run with nice weather. I love when it feels great.
I had brunch with a friend I haven’t seen in a while, and that was amazing.
Then I worked on laundry and getting ready for a big band weekend. I wanted everything to go smoothly, and that means being prepared.
- Cardio: 1 mile, walking
No pictures this morning. It was a quick mile.
Why? Well, A needed to be at the school at 4 AM, and we were in the car about an hour behind him. We made our way to Orlando for the BOA Regional Competition, where our band was competing in the preliminaries. It was a LONG day.
Our kids played brilliantly, and while they didn’t make it into the finals, they did turn out an absolutely brilliant performance, got to spend a few hours in Disney Springs and then came back to the Stadium to watch the finals as spectators.
We are so proud.
On a side note, I was able to break out my DSLR after about five years (it works!) to help get some images of the musicians in action.
We spent the day volunteering, watching bands, and brunching. As we do. We got home entirely too late, but it was perfect all the same.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
And with that. Sleep.
I start Week 5 of Couch to 5K this week, and that’s going beautifully. Im also doing something called Planksgiving, which sounds absolutely terrible. Who wants to join? It’s a free 30-day core challenge for runners. So. I mean. Sure. Here’s the link to register.
How was your week in training?
