After two weekends away, I’m finally home for a little bit. Of course, it’s absurdly hot, so literally staying home has not been too much of a problem. No one seems motivated to do anything other than lounge around. So here we are.
- Cardio: 2.62 miles, walking
I was still at Meghan’s on Sunday morning, so we took advantage with a walk around Baldwin Lake.
And then we followed it with birthday donuts to celebrate just a little bit more.
And then it was time to hit the road. The weather was actually decent for the two hour drive (usually it rains at some point), and I made it in record time. At home, I got unpacked and organized, and then one of A’s friends came over for dinner and some movies.
- Cardio: 3.28 miles, running + 3.01 miles, walking
Another Monday. The heat, humidity and air quality were trash. Utter trash. We did what we could.
Mr. PugRunner had a doctor’s appointment and I had a nail appointment.
Oh, and A started band camp. It’s going to be a fabulous season.
- Cardio: 4.71 miles, walking
Another super hot morning. Sigh.
From there, we had to go to Mr. PugRunner’s echocardiogram. It was a long appointment as his tech was brand new and wanted to make sure he got EVERYTHING. Spoiler alert. Everything was status quo. It’s not perfect, but we are holding steady and that’s all we can do right now.
- Cardio: 4.48 miles, running + 4.73 miles, walking
Again, we are just doing our best over here. I have been breaking up my miles into “before camp drop-off” and “after.” I’m able to get a mixup of scenery, though, so that’s ok.
After some work, I met a friend at the St. Augustine Distillery and The Ice Plant for a self-guided tour and some drinks and snacks. We only get to see each other every few months, but it’s so fun when we do.
- Cardio: 4.29 miles, walking
I was THRILLED that we had a coffee truck in our neighborhood. I treated myself to an iced blueberry cream coffee after a grueling set of miles. Yum.
It was a bit of a dull day. We are waiting on a repair for our microwave and we had to order a new kitchen faucet for that to be replaced next week. I also had to submit some proposals, attend another training and hit some deadlines. Not to toot my own horn, but I am crushing this week.
- Cardio: 8.83 miles, running + walking
It was just too awful when I started out in the morning. I tried to run, but it fell apart super fast. Oh, well. I did wear all pink in honor of the Barbie Movie release. I am so excited to see it and we are going next week.
The boys went to the driving range, while I worked.
In the evening, A invited his band section over to tie-dye some shirts for their spirit week next week, and we had pizza and ice cream for them. I loved the laughter and conversation, and hope that we can open our home for more things like this.
- Cardio: 3.19 miles, walking
A light day. I stayed up way too late and we also had to be at the dojo at 8:45.
I spent a few hours getting karate content, and then some more time rinsing and washing all the tie dye shirts. Maybe I’m biased, but their section is going to look incredible!
Dinner with friends at night. I love getting the chance to do that.
Thoughts + Goals
So, here we are. I’m finding some new motivation simply because I have some increased responsibilities in my workload. It’s a good thing.
I’m really soul-searching on an August race. It’s just so hot. Too hot. And yes, I can walk, but that doesn’t feel super fun. I have a target in mind, but I think I might wait til the week of to register.
Back to reading consistently, and I just finished Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver. It was heavy, but good. Next up is Yellowface by R. F. Kuang, but I’m rereading the ACOTAR series in between to lighten things up.
This week is band camp part 2, DCI, and the end of July. I can’t wait to see what they’ve been working on at the end of the week! And we are going to see Barbie, and hopefully Oppenheimer. I can’t do both at once, so that might have to wait until next week.
Coming up this week on the blog, I’m writing about…
Will you be seeing Barbie and/or Oppenheimer? Read anything good lately?
