Florida is really messing with my head. It’s cold; it’s hot. The sun is shining; nope, the fog and gloom are here. This girl looks a chilly Christmas with cozy sweaters and pajamas, so fingers crossed we can stop playing hide and seek with winter!
- Cardio: 2.21 miles, walking
I didn’t have time for a walk in the morning. We had family photos scheduled and I had to do hair and makeup. Do I have pictures of that? Nope. Here’s a peacock instead.
I did get a few miles in the afternoon when we walked to the community center for food trucks and a little holiday festival. Nothing major.
- Cardio: 5.89 miles, running + walking
As much as I hoped we were done with the insane humidity, the morning was just soggy. Yuck. The run was good, though, and that’s what matters.
Mr PugRunner and I had a date at the flooring warehouse, choosing some new floors for the house. It’s not exactly what I wanted (hardwood everywhere), but it will get us through the next few years.
- Cardio: 4.46 miles, walking
Sometimes, the workouts are boring. It is what it is.
I had several deadlines to hit, so I really tried to spend the day in hard focus. I also had a big committee meeting in the evening, which was very much not so fun.
- Cardio: 6.87 miles, walking + running
Alright. Now things start getting interesting. I had a solid run. Really solid.
In the evening, we went to The Tasting Tours’ new space in the Treasury on the Plaza. Check them out for some of the best food and wine tours around. This local biz offers walking and riding tours, holiday-themed adventures with characters like Santa and The Grinch, and micro events in their headquarters. I can’t wait to visit again.
- Cardio: 4.23 miles, walking
Whee for a cooler morning!
Next up was a much needed hair appointment. I am wearing next to no makeup in this photo, but I love the lowlights.
That evening, A’s school had their winter arts showcase. We were treated to performances from chorus, jazz band, dance, theatre, and band, as well as displays from visual arts. The talent was simply beyond.
- Cardio: 6.29 miles, running + walking
Disappointingly, I ran by myself. I changed up my intervals, and it was lonely but productive.
Mr PugRunner and I chilled at home. I set up the tree (finally), and we got A off to his camping weekend. It’s been so long since he has been able to join his camping buddies, so we were glad he could go.
- Cardio: Santa Suits On The Loose 5k
Two races this weekend! The first was Santa Suits On The Loose at St. Augustine Beach. This was a new event for me and it was really well done. I will definitely run it again (race report coming Wednesday!).
The day was just gross: dreary and foggy. After we got home, we lounged around and did some decorating, before getting ourselves together for our dinner date at JAX Cooking Studio. With the assistance of the chefs, we made a three course meal, with plenty of wine and laughs. Loved it!
Goal-getting + Thoughts
This week, I have a few more earrings orders to complete, one more big meeting, and then it’s time for cookies and festivities. Wheee!
I also want to go back to the gym this week. There are things about my body which are really bothering me, and I need to do something about it.
How was your week in training? Are you decorating, baking, and getting last minute holiday things done?
