After all the chaos of the last two weeks, we are (tentatively) back to normal. Ish? It’s hard to say what that is anymore, but that’s ok. We will figure it out.
- Cardio: 3.79 miles, walking
A little bit of rain didn’t stop me.
We spent a good chunk of the day just cleaning up from the carpet install. There was so much that was left out and untouched when Mr PugRunner went in the hospital and while I didn’t want to clean, it felt good to have everything tidied and away.
- Cardio: 6.29 miles, running
Let’s run! It was warmer out and that was kind of a bummer. I like the colder mornings.
Coincidentally, this was a week of self-care. Monday meant new nails. I love this adorable Valentine’s Day design.
- Cardio: 3.76 miles, walking
Sure, it was a little muggy, but that sky was perfection. I do love a good blue sky.
- Cardio: 5.02 miles, running + 3.89 miles, walking
Getting up has been extra hard (I’m just not sleeping well), but Wednesday morning worked out just fine.
- Cardio: 3.75 miles, walking
Foggy mornings are always hard, but I pushed through. I had a lot on my plate for the day.
First, a long-anticipated hair appointment. I loved it.
From there, I picked up Mr PugRunner to take him to his cardiologist follow-up. It was a fantastic report. His heart is actually in really good shape, and his blood pressure is under control (with meds). Nephrologist next week to see how those kidneys are doing.
- Cardio: 5.31 miles, running + 3.33 miles, walking
So our run started out hot and steamy. Towards the end, a chilling wind started blowing, and before I made it home, I was absolutely pounded by what was almost hail. Neat.
No time to dwell, however. Mr PugRunner and I had plans for a weekend in Amelia Island. I was a little bitter because of of the rain (any time I try to do anything fun, it rains, lately), but the weather shifted and so did my mood.
We checked into the Omni Amelia Island, for the first time and we fell in love. It’s a beautiful property, and it’s the first time since the pandemic that we found a hotel was all systems go, with staffing and amenities operational. I know things aren’t better, but this bit of normalcy was comforting.
Lavender champagne at check-in? Don’t mind if I do.
We took a chilly walk on the beach before dinner. And we opted to make use of the resort’s dinner restaurants because they offered a shuttle and I didn’t feel like driving. Fabulous.
- Cardio: 1 mile, walking
Look at that sunrise.
After breakfast, we drove to the beach for a horseback ride. It was windy AF (gusts of up to 20mph), but it was pretty fantastic, all the same. It was super hard to get riding pictures with the conditions, so this was the best I could do.
Next up was a really yummy lunch, and then we spent the afternoon playing mini golf. Not to brag, but I won.
A quiet dinner followed, with live music in the hotel lobby. We didn’t stay up too late, because we had an early morning ahead.
Goal-getting + Thoughts
And there we have it. This week will be super busy with events and appointments. I am hopeful to be able to fit in my strength sessions and get back in that routine. Slowly, but surely, right?
How was your week in training? Have you had to battle inconvenient rain lately? Do you ride horses?
