A Peek in our week

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend or are still enjoying your weekend. I am actually sitting on the beach as I prepare this post.
Before I get into what we did this past week, I want to remind everyone that the Summer Run Scavenger Hunt starts TOMORROW.  We are so excited for this. We have the list all made up ( will be posted on the blog tomorrow) and we have some companies that are going to be giving away some really cool prizes ( Sweatybands and Pro Compression are just a few)!
And also, you may have noticed that we have been skipping a post one day of the week ( it's usually been Thursdays). Well, there's a reason for this.  We enjoy our readers VERY much, but we don't want to become overwhelming to the point where you become sick of us!  This opens up a day of the week that we can also enjoy some of our other interest as well. With that being said, there will not be a Tasty Tuesday post tomorrow. ( Since I'm at the beach, it just makes it easier to skip that day anyway).
So, where is a look into how we spent our week. I know I for one need to be better at documenting how I spent my time because by the time the week ends, I have forgotten what I have done! Does anyone else ever feel like that?

Sunday- Picnic with family. I got to see my great-grand mother and some other relatives I have not seen in a while.
Monday- Today I did my first real run ( outside) since my 6 weeks of PT. When I started out, I felt some tightness behind my knee and I thought it was going to give me a problem on my run, but it didn't. I did a very slow 3.1 miles because I was still a bit unsure of myself, but it was 3.1 miles none the less.
Wednesday- Took Baylee to the park for a walk with my friend who also has a Labrador. I enjoy talking to this friend while we walk because she is an athletic trainer and always has some good tips for me!
Thursday- I was debating if I could get a run in today before it started to rain. Turns out that I did another 3.1 miles ( still wasn't easy, but I did it). turns out, it never did rain anyway.
Saturday- I participated in my first Bark for Life. ( like a relay for life but for dogs).
Lacey
Sunday- Overnighted in Savannah and ran 5 miles.

Monday- Overnighted in White Planes NY. Did a mile trail run then finished with another mile of hill sprints.

Tuesday- Had a very long work day so decided to take the day off when I got home and went to bed early to catch up on my sleep.

Wednesday- After getting a good night's sleep. I got up and ran 8 miles. I then watched a Sex and the City Marathon all afternoon. After laying around all day I thought it was only right to squeeze in another 3 mile run so I didn't have to feel too guilty about doing nothing all day.

Thursday- Ran 5 miles. Decided not to run in the evening because Friday I was suppose to meet a friend to do a long run.

Fri- Well the long run never happened.  I woke up to torrential down pouring and flooding in some parts of the area in the morning. But some how it cleared up that afternoon and the sun came out. I put my hat on (which I never do) and managed to get 5 miles in. I could've done a little longer, but it started to sprinkle and I didn't want to get caught in a mess. Luckily it didn't. It became so humid out that there weren't even puddles I had to jump around. So weird, when there were cars getting stuck in the rain earlier that morning. 

Saturday- Back to another work week.

  1. Great weeks! I have no real blogging schedule, it depends on my inspiration and how insane my "real" job is. I try to post at least 3 times a week though. Looking forward to the scavenger hunt!!

  4. Congrats on the good runs, it sounds like your leg is getting better! And Lacey, I love that you got a Sex in the City marathon in there :) I have a sort of blogging schedule. I do my weekly review and Monday and the Friday Five on Friday. I have one or two posts in the middle on various topics, usually one on food.

  7. Lucky you – on the beach! Glad to hear your your knee didn't give you too much trouble on your runs, Meranda! Bark for Life sounds fun, I need to look into whether they have one in my area :)

    Good for you for getting in another run after your Sex and the City marathon (I love doing marathons like that when I have time). After lazy days on the couch, I tend to stay on the couch for the evening as well. Lazy days are so rare, I REALLY like to make them count ;)

    Have a great week, ladies!
