So where are we at?
- Cardio: 4.30 miles, walking
We didn’t stay at the graduation party too late, so it wasn’t terrible getting up on Sunday morning to walk.
We WERE lazy as heck the rest of the day because we had plans for our friend’s 50th birthday: a night out in Jacksonville! There was dinner and drinks on the roof with a beautiful view.
The formal part of the night got cut short when my friend’s shoe broke (!!!!), but we came home, changed into comfy clothes, and then went back to their house for games. At 11:30, I called it because I had a race in the morning, but it was a good night.
- Cardio: Florida Striders Memorial Day 5k
I’ve already shared the race report for the 10th anniversary of my first 5K here.
It was a good race. After I got home, I showered and rested, then we hosted our friends for some fish tacos and margaritas.
And then it was time for pajamas and fuzzy blankets and couch. Period.
- Cardio: 3.8 miles, walking
The fun never stops! Up and out for some miles.
We have been trying to get to see Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and today was finally the day. No spoilers, but I openly sobbed through about 75% of it. So there’s that.
- Cardio: 4.44 miles, running + 3.34 miles, walking
J was struggling a bit with her breathing this morning, so we just took it easy. No worries there. It’s hot outside.
Next up was a big meeting for a client who is applying for a grant. From there, I figured I would get some errands done, so I was out when Mr PugRunner called to say they were on their way to the DMV to get A’s learner’s permit. Timing worked out, so I met them there. We went out for a celebratory lunch after.
And then I went to a beer tapping. About a month ago, I attended a Yelp beer tasting, where we all got to vote on our favorite ingredients. Wednesday night was the day when the winning combination was unveiled. It was a pilsner, not too heavy and not too bitter. I liked it (although I prefer more of a citrus taste to my beer).
Cardio: 3.17 miles, walking
Happy June and Happy First Day of (Run/Walk) Streaking!
We are off to a great start!
Then it was time for my first ever mammogram, which was fine.
And then I was kind of done for the day, with the exception of one more meeting. Night meetings are so rough for me, but you have to do what you have to do.
Cardio: 5.09 miles, running + 1.79 miles, walking
We got out and after it. Things went much better today than they did on Wednesday.
Did you know it was National Doughnut Day? I took myself out for breakfast. Currently, Parlor Doughnuts is my favorite. They are more like a cronut: the base is the same for most of their creations, but they can pretty much top and stuff them to order. For one, they are warm, light, and delicious. Second, since they can top the pastries on the fly, they don’t really run out. It’s nice that there’s no need to get there at opening for popular flavors.
Then this happened.
- Cardio: 4.42 miles, walking (Day 3 of #StreakingWithThe COOLKIDS)
- Strength: 20 minutes (3×12 Single Leg Bridge to Chest Press, 3×12 W Extensions + 3×6 Mountain Climber to Pushup, 3×12 Kneeling Halos + 3×10 Plank Stretches)
The guys left before the sun for A’s birthday adventure (a little delayed). He just wanted to go fishing with a couple of buddies, and today was the day. Finally, the weather was decent and the fish were biting.
In the meantime, I did my walk and a strength session.
I also replaced the shower rod, liners, and curtain in A’s bathroom (I tend to stay out of his spaces, and man, did that need replacing!), and did some work.
Mr PugRunner had originally suggested pizza at home, but then decided he wanted a date night, so we went out to a place I really enjoy.
Thoughts + Goals
This week, things feel like they are moving forward.
We have two family trips on the horizon. One of my besties is coming to visit next weekend. The marching schedule is out, with more travel and adventure. I have some fun things on the calendar, including an afternoon at the symphony and tickets to the immersive King Tut experience.
This is my happy place.
You may notice that I started strength again today. Again again. But that’s ok. One day turns into two turns into three, right? Small steps.
I did need a bit of recharging this week. There was a lot of being out and socializing, which wore me out pretty quickly. I need to balance that so it’s not so much all at once.
How was your week?
