It was surely a week of celebrations and good times. Yay!
Sunday – rest
We had an unexpected date day on Sunday. Little man went to go see Endgame for the second time in 24 hours with another buddy and so we were left to our own devices.
We went to a beach bar for tacos and cocktails and then took a stroll on the beach. The weather was gorgeous and the ocean was beautiful.
Of course, we were home in time to get him off to bed and watch… you guessed it: Game of Thrones. Things are happening, now and I don’t want to miss a second..
Monday – 6.24 miles, running + 9 Round
Happy birthday, little man! we went for a great run,
and then it was home to get those celebrations started!
Check out these incredible lawn signs from Lawn Leprachauns! They did their work in the middle of the night and he was so surprised.
And of course, we painted the rock at his school. And went in to bring him lunch and cookies/cupcakes for his class.
He didn’t have any homework, so we took him to a restaurant a little farther away for ramen, one of his favorites.
His big gift from us? A overboard. He was saving up for one, so we ended up just getting it for him.
It was really a wonderful day and he told us that it was his second favorite birthday (the first being the one where we went on a Disney Cruise to celebrate several big events, his birthday included).
Tuesday – 9Round
I made a goal of going to 9Round five days a week, so I took on another session. I still get some soreness, but it’s more from doing different moves and working different muscles than anything else.
Little man had his first official BSA meeting with his new Troop. I ended up filling out an adult volunteer application, although I won’t have a major leadership role. It was weird not being actually present for the meeting – we actually went out for a glass of wine while he was there, and when we picked him up, he had nothing but rave reviews! Yay!
Wednesday – 6.8 miles, running + 9Round
Yay for a double workout: a run and 9Round!
I had a quick work meeting
Thursday – 9Round
It was the first day of the last portion of standardized testing for the fifth graders, so we just had a nice chill morning, and afternoon.
Basketball practice was canceled due to weather, so the boys went to get hair cuts instead.
Friday – 9Round
After I dropped little man at school, I scooted over to 9Round for a quick session, and then picked up S for a morning of planning and shopping for Teacher Appreciation week. We had a lot to get done due to testing – we can’t be at the school much so our little teacher surprises have to be set up and broken down before and after school hours.
In the afternoon, we had my last official elementary PTA meeting. I turned over my binder to the incoming VP – Membership and closed that chapter of my life.
Of course, I stuck around after to decorate the teacher’s lounge, and made it home in time to grab a sushi dinner with Mr PugRunner.
Saturday – 6.2 miles, running
I had a solo run again. Meh. I would have liked more miles this week, but i felt ok considering I had taken on so many days at 9Round.
But there was no time to dwell! We had to meet my parents at little man’s basketball game and then the rest of the day was for celebrating. My mom is working next weekend, so we combined little man’s birthday, my birthday (in four days) and Mother’s Day into one at this gorgeous BBQ place on the water.
It would be impossible to beat the company, the food or the views.
When we said goodbye, it was home for a bit of a nap and then we stayed up late watching TV. I was ready for a nice family Sunday.
Training was spot on this week. Cross training was all systems go and I was consistent with my runs. I need to set my sights on a half and start getting those long run miles up a little higher, but it will come.
Hydration was fairly good as well. 9Round is making me pay more attention to my water intake (I get a headache without it), so it was a double blessing.
We ate out A LOT this week. However, Mr PugRunner is truly excited to make lettuce wraps this week, so yay for a new recipe!
And reading… I think for my birthday, I’m going to order just a few books I’ve been thinking about and go from there. After all, I deserve a bit of a treat, right?
