Weekly Wrap 4.30.17

Happy May!! How was your April? Mine was busy and rushed!

I'm  linking up with Holly and Tricia this week for the weekly wrap.




Workouts
Tuesday- Cardio Funk and 3 easy miles
Wednesday- Zumba with Deb and 5 miles- Sprint intervals
Thursday- 2 miles tempo
Friday- 9 miles long run
Saturday - 2 mile hike

This was busy, and there was no time to add weights to my routine. I will have to make time for it in the next few days. 

Baseball has not been off to a great start, of the last 4 games, 3 have been cancelled. After getting word on the Tuesday cancellation, I headed to Cardio Funk. 

To prepare myself for the days that there might be rain, and a cancelled game, I pack 2 changes of clothes. 1 for Baseball and one for running / zumba. 



This past week has been very warm, abnormally warm for April. 

On Friday during my long run, an older gentleman approached me as I went to finish the last 4 miles of my run. He asked if he could run with me, and I said yes. He talked to me about all his running adventures and training, and when his birthday is. He made the 2 miles up the hill go by really fast! 

On Saturday, after another Baseball game was cancelled, we headed to Caledonia State park for a light hike with my son. He doesn't like hiking... he was complaining when I told him we were going hiking... but we negotiated... he asked for a toy, I said no. He asked for a candy bar, I said yes, he asked for another toy, I said no again. I told him that he could take my water pack, because he loves that water pack... and off we went. 







After, on our way home we stoped for detergent. Roger was in charge of picking up detergent, so he picked the one he liked... the free and clear one... ugh! that detergent makes me feel like I'm sick! It creeps me out that detergent is clear and smells like puke! We got the nice meadow smelling detergent that likely has more chemicals than the free and clear... but it doesn't smell like puke.

I haven't posted what I'm reading in a few weeks, that's because I got stuck in a book. Last week I finished The Lilac Girls, and this week I'm making my way through Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen. I know this book doesn't have anything on running, but it has been on a few list of great books. Also, spoiler alert, until last Friday, I could not identify a single Bruce Springsteen song... my only defense on that is that I didn't grow up in the USA. 



How was your week?
Do you like to hike? 
What scent is your detergent? 
Do you like the free and clear detergent? 
What is your Favorite Bruce Springsteen song?
What can people bribe you with, to do something you don't want to do?

  1. I like hiking but haven't gone in a while. That's great your son went with you even though you had to negotiate, lol. I'd like to go hiking with my kiddos but they would complain too.

    1. I am trying to figure out why he complains about it... he has fun once he is there, and I never speak negatively of hiking!

  2. What free and clear detergent are you using? We use the Tide in the white bottle and it doesn't smell like puke! We've got sensitive skin here, so no perfumed stuff for us. Plus I don't like smelling like detergent.

    1. Sorry Wendy, maybe it doesn't exactly smell of puke, and I should have stated it "smells like Puke TO ME". The alcohol and neutral smell makes me think of being sick.

      We use the Arm and Hammer sensitive skin with light scent. I love it! I could take a bath in it!

    1. Detergent smells delicious!! I like smelling the different ones at the store, just to test them out. Gain smells like mango mojitos!

  4. That negotiation with your son sounds pretty successful :) I like hiking but don't get out there as much as I would like to. And I have to admit I like the free and clear detergent too.

    1. I hate that he had to pick up a candy bar, but he would need it to keep up his energy... Mom logic doesn't make sense! I'm ok with a candy bar, but don't want to buy another toy!

      I think I make bad associations with the free and clear detergents. No judgments on anybody who uses it!

  5. I love how detergent smells, so I am soooo not on team Free & Clear.

    Why doesn't your son like hiking? You know I love it.

    I can almost always be bribed with food. Or, if Mr. Sass will complete a task I hate doing. Usually all it takes is him promising to make me breakfast, which he usually does anyways. Ha.

    1. I think that he is so used to staying home... he is a bit of a homebody, like his dad... and I am unable to sit still. I think he will come to enjoy it as he gets older. He had a great time that day!

      I am so glad Mr. Sass takes good care of you with the food!! Men who cook are awesome!

  6. Did you hike on the AT at Caledonia? I have only been through there on the AT once and it's really pretty!

    1. Yes, this time we did a small section of the AT, it is very pretty... not as rocky and hilly as the Pine Grove section.

  7. I go for the smells! Gain. Snuggle Island Collection. I can't believe there's a clear detergent that smells like puke! Maybe hiking will grow on your son. But, until then, food is always a good bribe. LOL. Thanks for linking, Ana!

  9. We are Free & Clear here because the Caveman is allergic to the others. I always notice when people come over. I can smell their fresh laundry soap! :D Sorry about all the rainouts. I have negotiations like that with my youngest. Except she wants a hedgehog. Cardio funk sounds fun!

  10. How fun to schedule a hike since the game was cancelled! My family or I should say the kids don't like things like that either!
    I like for my clothes to have a smell and lavender seems to be my scent right now.
