And…I’m back in the groove! I managed to get back on my regular blogging schedule this week, and Steve and I got back into our healthy eating kick. It’s been great!
Dopey Challenge training week #16 is almost complete. And, let me tell you, it’s been tough. My body has definitely taken a toll from traveling three weekends in a row, and I feel like I’m starting to get sick. But, I still managed to complete all of my runs thus far!
- Friday: 7-mile run around the neighborhood
- Saturday: Rest day! But, I did a lot of walking throughout the city of Pittsburgh.
- Sunday: Rest day!
- Monday: 3-mile run on the treadmill at the gym and some arm exercises
- Tuesday: 5 miles around the neighborhood and some leg exercises
- Wednesday: 3 miles around the neighborhood and some arm exercises
- Thursday: 20 minutes on the exercise bike and some leg exercises
I have a 4-mile run this morning and then a 14-mile training run tomorrow morning. I plan to wake up rather early to complete this training run since it’s been so hot here. Fall, where are you?!
Stephen’s family had a birthday party for him on Sunday. There was LOTS of yummy food and, of course, PLENTY of Milly time!
Also, our little buddy had a grooming appointment on Wednesday night, and he looks so handsome! The groomer ALWAYS sends him home with a seasonal handkerchief, and I just can’t handle it!
🙂 I’m just going to leave a smiley face here….if you follow my blog at all, you’ll know what that means….
I’ve basically been living off of Emergen-C this week because I’ve been battling a cold. Let’s hope I can keep it at bay!
BUT, last week, Steve and I went to Bonefish Grill for dinner, and I had this incredible pineapple martini. Not only was it delicious, but it was also SO PRETTY!
Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?
Steve and I will be going out for a “date night” tonight at Brewvino, a local pizza restaurant, because I have to carbload for my long run tomorrow. The food is delicious, and we haven’t been there in a very long time. Needless to say, we are very excited.
Also, Steve and I will be visiting my grandparents (both sets) on Sunday. We live about 2 hours away from them, so I’m very excited when we can make the time to go and see them.
What are you most excited for this weekend?
