Weekly Wrap 8.6.17
Happy first day of the week! It was another amazing busy week for us! I'm so tired, that I can't wait to get back to work, just to be able to sit for one hour straight.
Tuesday- 5 miles with the Harrisburg Beer Runners
Wednesday - 4 miles tempo with sprints at the end
Thursday- 2.5 sleepy miles
Sunday- 10 miles long run
Tuesday was a busy day at the office, I barely remember what happened, but I vaguely remember having a headache and an empty stomach after work... so I joined the Harrisburg Beer Runners for a hot 5 miler. I stayed with Jodi, who kept me on pace. If I had been alone, there would have been a significant amount of walking breaks.
After the run, I picked up 4 oz of mango something beer, it was good! Jodi also sent me home with some zucchini bread.
|My beer is so tiny, I can barely see it next to my water!|
On Thursday I was up bright and early and got dressed in the dark to this lovely mix of colors. It was a hot sweaty run.
|I only wear this tank top for morning runs, it's too bright for the bright for anything else|
Later on Thrusday we headed to New Jersey for Roger's annual Aikido Seminar. It was a long drive!
Friday, while Roger tossed some people around at the seminar, my little boy enjoyed a swim at the hotel pool. He LOVES being in the water so much, maybe I should start having him train for the Olympics.
We also drove to Ocean City NJ for a few hours of beach and sand. It was ok, we still prefer Rehoboth DE better than any other beach. We are spoiled.
Saturday was another busy day on the road. We drove back home, I dropped off Roger and then we headed to my parents. Each summer, we attend the local(ish) Fire Department festival. We enjoyed our traditional bucket of fries, and food from the fire hall ladies. Each year, we hope there will be a Mexican taco stand, but every year our dreams are crushed .
On Sunday, I cleaned the inside of my car! I was starting to question if I would eat something dropped on the floor, so it was best to vacuum it and clean it out. My brother also helped me clean the tight spots by the car seats, and the car almost looks new inside... minus the weird stains by my son's car sear....
I was trying to avoid my long run on Sunday, because my body was tired of all the driving... but headed out and did it anyway.
I don't have a random story this week, but I'll give you a random thought. This week, I'm taking my niece, my son and my mom to Sesame Place. I am not nervous about my niece and my son, even though they can both be more than a handful, but I'm worried my mom will get tired and hate me. My mom is not a big fan of amusement parks, and can get finicky with how one cares for my niece. I'm nervous, but also excited to share the day with all of them... I will need at least 3 espressos before the day is over.
Nothing. I'm waiting for books... so I'm catching up on the rest of the books.
How was your week?
How are the last summer weekend vacations coming along?
Do you like cheese fries? < I am terrified of eating can cheese!! but shredded cheese is my favorite on top of hot fries!
