A Peek in Our Week

Welcome to another edition of A peek in Our Week. This is where we recap some of the things we've done the previous week and how our training has been going. I have to tell ya that this week has been pretty quiet

* I pretty much did nothing but relax this past week after MCM Marathon. ~L

* I did go get a relaxing massage.~L

* I went to funeral. ~L

* I went to a wedding. ~L  ( Yes the funeral and wedding were on the same day)

* I did get my re-certification for my ACE Personal Trainer. I've had my certificate since 2010 but you do have to be re-certified every 2 years.  ~L

* To stick to my training schedule I did some short runs during the week and then did a 13.1 miler on Friday. I was feeling a little under the weather so I did a walk- run-walk the whole way, but I got it done. ~M

*Saturday I planned to do another long run but I just couldn't make myself do it. I was feeling worse and I had to go to an event for work for a bit and then get ready for a wedding. I just didn't feel like I would be able to fit it all in.  ~M

* A nice reader of ours recommended a product to me called "Halo".  It's a throat spray. I bought it at CVS for $13.95 and it seemed to do the job. After the first few squirts, I no longer had a sore/scratchy throat. Although now I have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes. I don't know if the "Halo" really was effected or if the sore throat for a day or 2 and then a stuffy nose and head is just the natural progression of things. ~M

* I stayed home this morning and cleaned out my walk in closet.  Instead of "spring cleaning", I kind of got into "Fall Re-Organizing".  I started some Christmas shopping last week so I felt I needed some space to hide my gifts!  ~M

* I'm hoping to visit with my sister this after noon and give her some birthday gifts I got her. I won't see her again until we are both in Las Vegas in a few days and I didn't want to take more stuff than I have to on the plane. ~M

* L and I are going to a Masquerade party in a few weeks so we are hoping to hit up some local store this evening for some masks. Since it is after Halloween, I'm hoping we can find some deals.

* Speaking of Halloween, I want to give a shout out to our friend "J", who won first place at a Costume contest last night with his "Service Dog" costume.  That's right, He dressed up as a dog!

Oh, and one more thing.  As a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who take the time to read what we write, we are participating in another Give Away Hop with Kristy from Runaway Bridal Planner and it starts TOMORROW!   Be sure to stop back to see what you can win!

That's it folks. We hop you had a great weekend!

What was the best Halloween costume you've seen this weekend?


  1. Great week! I hope you're not getting the same awful virus I had! Rest, fluids, take it easy!

  2. I love organizing closets. And awesome that you got an early start to holiday shopping.

    You deserve the rest after MCM!

  3. You do deserve a rest after MCM:) Glad you took some time to relax a little!

    Hope you get over that cold soon!!!

  4. Lacy, I didn't know you were certified through ACE. I got certified this past summer. What type of training do you do?

  5. Hope you enjoyed your rest week and have recovered well after your marathon, Lacey. You certainly earned that massage. Meranda - hope you are feeling better! Have SO much fun in Vegas! Jealous of you ladies; the Las Vegas race is on my bucket list. How awesome it will be to run on the strip at night - enjoy!
