This has been such a great week, so let’s get this recap started!
After my 10-mile run tomorrow, Dopey Challenge Training week #21 will be complete! This training is just flying by, you guys. It honestly feels like I just started!
- Friday: 25 minutes on the exercise bike at home
- Saturday: 6 miles around the neighborhood
- Sunday: 16 total miles (2.9 miles around the neighborhood and then 13.1 miles at the Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half Marathon)
- Monday: Rest day!
- Tuesday: 4 miles around the neighborhood
- Wednesday: 7 miles around the neighborhood
- Thursday: 4 miles around the neighborhood
This morning, I did 30 easy minutes on the exercise bike at the gym, and I also did some light arm and leg exercises. I have 10 miles on the schedule for tomorrow, but I’m doing a local 5K for my sister’s school as well. So, I plan to run 6.9 miles around the neighborhood before the 5K to make sure that I get my full 10 miles in tomorrow. It’ll be another interesting training run for sure!
My absolute favorite running experience has to be PRing at the Blue-Gray Half Marathon on Sunday! I definitely was not expecting this PR, and I’m so happy my training is working and that my body is getting stronger and faster! Be sure to read my race recap here.
Another favorite experience for the week was attending Farmers Fair in Dillsburg. Before Steve and I went to pick up my packet in Gettysburg on Saturday, we stopped at the Farmers Fair festival in Dillsburg. It was our first time at the festival, and we were sure to try all of the food! My friend, Alexa, who goes to school in Florida, and her mom have a booth every year, so I’m so happy that I was able to see her while she was home!
And, finally, we got to see plenty of Miss Milly this weekend 🙂
I made some more headway on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Steve is going golfing tomorrow, so I think I’m going to try and read a big chunk while he is gone. Even though Order of the Phoenix is probably my least favorite movie in the series, I’m really enjoying the book so far!
Steve and I went to our favorite restaurant after my half marathon, and we had ALL OF THE FOOD AND PUMPKIN MARTINIS! I didn’t take any photos, but believe me, it was SO GOOD!
Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?
YES! Steve and I will be celebrating our 1-year wedding anniversary on Sunday. I can’t believe that it’s already been a year – where has the time gone?! We have plans to go to The Melting Pot on Saturday night, and then we plan to get donuts Sunday morning. We had donuts as the dessert at our wedding, so this is very fitting. I’m so excited!
What are you most excited for this weekend?
