riots#10: spring break


Happy Monday! I hope you’ll join us for the #RIOTS (Running Is Our Therapy Sisters) link up every week on Mondays. We’d love to be a part of your weekly routine!

Set some goals, share them on your blog and then link up with other awesome fitness bloggers to help keep you on track! We’d all love to support you!

Spring Break came. And Spring Break went. It wasn’t really anything fabulous, and plans were pretty flexible, which isn’t my favorite thing. I think we are all ready to be back in our routine.

Sunday – rest

Mr PugRunner and my stepdad had spent the night in Tampa, so I decided to take little man to a fancy brunch. He loves buffets, and he’s a fairly adventurous eater, so it was a super fun time.

When Mr PugRunner got home, we decided to go see Captain Marvel. If you haven’t seen it yet, go. It was honestly one of my favorite MCU movies, and I was absolutely enamored with it. I need to go again. We are also so excited for Avengers; Endgame.

Monday – 6 miles, running

Monday started crazy early with a run of six miles.

And then I got packed up so we could spend the day at a Gainesville creek with Mudslinger Tours hunting for shark teeth.

Even though it was freezing, it was truly one of the most fun things we have done. Our guide brought us to a bend in the creek, and we spent hours digging and sifting. Little man found literally hundreds of teeth. No megalodons this time, but we will be back.

Tuesday –rest

The weather was miserable on Tuesday and we stayed home most of the day. Little man played with his friends and I did some writing and caught up on blogging and work.

We had one last follow up at the pediatric ophthalmologist to make sure little man’s eye was ok and that went well. We’ve been at the doctor more in the past few months than in his entire life, and it’s been rough. We are grateful that things weren’t worse, but it was a tough go.

I brought dinner to a friend that night and little man had a basketball practice. I only caught a few minutes of it and I was freezing! Spring, come soon!

Wednesday – 6 miles, running + 60 minutes, pints + poses yoga

S was out of town, so I was on my own for six miles.


That evening, I had set up a girls night at the local brewery. They offer a donation based yoga session on a weekly basis, with the first beer for 50% off. Since little man has karate with Mr PugRunner on Wednesday nights, I decided it was time to give it a try.

My fellow St. Augustine Moms Blog Contributor, Kristi, joined me, and we are hoping to see more ladies out there in the future!

Thursday – rest

The boys all had tickets to the first round of the NCAA Championships, so off they went after breakfast.

I spent the day doing laundry, cleaning and catching up on work. I probably tossed in an errand or two. They didn’t get home until midnight or so, making it a super fun day for them and a quiet day for me.

Friday6 miles, running

I slept in a bit and ran later in the morning, again. It wasn’t terrible – the weather has been cool enough to allow it.

The guys all wanted to go to a sports bar to watch a little more of March Madness, so that was what we did. I took little man home on the earlier side to do some last minute errands in advance of the weekend, and then we attended little gathering in the culdesac.

Saturday – rest

We were pretty excited because little man had his very first basketball game! My parents came down to cheer him on, and we loved seeing him sport his Bulls jersey!

Unfortunately, things did not go so well. For whatever reason, our team (consisting of five because of Spring Break, four of whom had never played before), somehow got matched against the “A League” Championship Team for the past four years. It was devastating to watch. We have been assured that going forward, our kids will be paired appropriately, but it was a really hard go for them.

Little man was absolutely deflated, but his coach and we explained that this was not their fault – that they are learning and they never should have been put in this position. The takeaway is that they never gave up, even though they were exhausted and discouraged.

That was worth an oreo mint milkshake.

In the evening, we went to dinner with my brother-in-law and nephews and made plans for the next day. I was just about basketballed out, if such a thing exists.

Running has been great. I stuck with it, even though my buddy has been out of town, and I felt good (if not a little lonely.)

We tried a new meal: Poppyseed Chicken Casserole.

It doesn’t photograph well, but it was delicious served with dumplings and veggies.

I’m ready to get back to reading but I haven’t really found anything that’s moved me. I need to get better about that.
