Travel and running and events, oh my!
Sunday – Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah 5K + Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah 1 Mile
Once again, the recap will be coming, but it was a great last day in Savannah. We had breakfast with Amy and then packed up to check out. Our races didn’t start until 1:00 PM, so we had plenty of time to drive into town for coffee and donuts!
The weather stayed pretty cool and overcast until the actual start of the 5K, when the clouds suddenly parted. I wasn’t thrilled but it was only 3.1 miles followed by 1 mile, so I got over it quickly.
And I was more than excited to collect my bling and my pie.
Monday – rest
After a whirlwind weekend, I was plumb tuckered. Of course, the week starts whether I’m ready or not, so it was off to school, off to work, karate, dinner and homework. Yay.
Tuesday – 6 miles, running
I was a little unsure how I would feel about this run, but I went for it anyway. We took our time and it went great. I was glad to get right back to it, despite the tons of miles over the weekend.
After music club, we dropped little man at a friend’s and stole away for a quick dinner to celebrate our anniversary, since we didn’t really get the chance over the weekend.
Wednesday – rest
Wednesday was a whirlwind. I was slammed at work and got stuck late, which is never any fun. Of course, it makes the day pass more quickly, so that was a positive.
Thursday – 6.5 miles, running
Good news – even after a long weekend of lots of running and walking, my hip and glue have been feeling fantastic! Maybe there is something to the whole massage thing. We also had a third join us and it was wonderful. I feel like we have a nice group going and I hope we can continue with it!
Even though I had a day off, there was still plenty to do. I’ve been working on an event for school and had plenty of stuff to shop for and create. I love DIY projects but it’s been tough keeping on top of everything. Can’t wait to show off some of our work after the party.
In Cub Scouts, we finished up another achievement when the boys made solar ovens out of Pringles’ cans. They did a great job and I am excited to hear how they worked out with either hot dogs or marshmallows.
Friday – rest
I had a bunch of writing to do, and Mr PugRunner headed off to Miami. I was glad to have an excuse to stay home and I was even more glad that little man wanted to chill out at home with a movie that night. We both turned in pretty early, which was great.
Saturday – 8 miles, running
Long run Saturday. I wanted to do more, but I kind of psyched myself out of going out earlier and needed to get back to the house. I promised myself that if I woke up in time on Sunday, I would go out for a few more miles.
I had a list of errands to check off, and I was also planning to spend the afternoon with my running and PTA buddy to finish up some more decorations.
S and I took the kids out to dinner and for ice cream and then it was home to the couch.
Mr PugRunner had scored a ticket for the Miami Hurricanes vs Notre Dame game, and all I wanted was to sit on the couch and watch the game with a cold beer. Little man hung with me for about a quarter, and I stayed up until midnight watching my Canes dominate the Irish.
All while getting texts from the stands. He was obviously having the worst time.
It’s an exciting time for us in NCAA football and I am looking forward to seeing where the rankings shake out tomorrow.
I’m also feeling really good about the running thing. My new shoes are working out great and I’m fairly confident about Space Coast in two weeks.
How was your week in training?
How is your NCAA team doing right now?
Do you have a running group that continues to grow?
