This week was a little exhausting, with little sun and chilly temperatures, but we had an awesome week of activity. Today I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap post.
Tuesday - 2 miles tempo run
Wednesday - Zumba with Denise, 3 miles easy run, 20 minutes of weights.
Saturday- Kennett Run 5K
On Tuesday the Baseball game went a little longer than it was supposed to, by about 10 minutes. I was supposed to do a 3 miles tempo run, but by the time I got home I was really tired, and very sleepy. But still put on my stuff and went for my fun, but cut it to 2 miles.
Wednesday was another busy day at work. I planned my afternoon on the plan of doing zumba for 1 hour, run for 3 miles and weights, meaning I had my lunch, a snack and another small meal before leaving work. But a co-worker gave me a soft pretzel right before my second meal, which messed up the rest of my eating.
I know that the pretzel could have been turned down, but I also know that pretzel was delicious and I regret almost nothing.
By the time I got home after Zumba and running, I was really hungry again, because my second meal went half uneaten. After 16 minutes of weights, I told Roger that I was done. If I kept going, my body would be mad at me. So did my planks, and started dinner. Still didn't regret that pretzel.
Let me say again, because it doesn't get said enough. To all teachers, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO! Your patience for spending 6 hours / day at school with our children, is very sincerely appreciated!
On Friday, I spend half of the day at my son's school. Before I started training for the Marathon, I wanted to come in and help on my day off, so after completing the Marathon, I cleared my Fridays off to help out at school. Arrived there at 9, after breakfast, this many kids before 10am requires a good breakfast and strong coffee. I helped out with the Math Olympics. We measured things, helped make paper airplanes, collected 6 pencils (... I kept finding pencils on the floor... ) settled a fight between kids, consoled a couple crying kids, and opened food snacks! All before lunch!

After school, We also helped on the annual May Fair Festival, which did not get rained out, like we all had feared. Sadly, we only did 1 glitter tattoo.

On Saturday we woke up to a sunny and warm day for the Kennett Run 5K. I'll do a recap on that race later this week. But I am happy to report that My son finished his 5K, and we all had a great time.

I did not beat my 5K Personal Record, but I did beat my record for this Course, which has been a long work in progress. I also got 2nd place for my age group, with a time of 25.59.
*** 5.17.16 Correction: I got 16th place on the 30-39 Age Group, but 2nd on the 30-34. The timing agency posted the results incorrectly when I checked on Saturday. So I'm not as Speedy awesome as I am portraying myself to me... just weird awesome! **
Miles - 8
Zumba- 1 hour
Weights - 20 minutes
I hope you had an awesome weekend!
Where do you stand on soft pretzels? What dip do you like for your pretzel? Cheese, mustard, honey mustard?
