Happy Friday and Happy November!
It’s been an incredibly busy week! This weekend will also be busy, so let’s get this recap started!
Only two runs stand between me and the completion of Dopey Challenge Training week #22! Less than nine weeks to go until race weekend. It’s getting so real!
- Friday: 25 minutes on the exercise bike at home and some leg and arm exercises
- Saturday: 6.9 miles around the neighborhood and 3.1 miles at a local 5K (read my recap here)
- Sunday: Rest day!
- Monday: 30 minutes on the exercise bike at home and some leg and arm exercises
- Tuesday: 4 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Wednesday: 7 miles on the treadmill at the gym
- Thursday: 30 minutes on the exercise bike at the gym and some leg and arm exercises
This morning, I did 2 miles on the treadmill and the gym. I have 7 miles on the schedule for tomorrow and 17 on Sunday. We have plans to paint most of our house this weekend, so both of these runs will be done at the crack of dawn. I’m definitely not looking forward to waking up early on my days off….
I only had one favorite experience this week. On Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary. Holy moly….this past year FLEW by! To celebrate, we went to The Melting Pot on Saturday night, and then we got our favorite donuts on Sunday morning to commemorate our special day (we had our favorite donut shop make donuts for our wedding instead of getting a cake or cupcakes). And, everything was AMAZING!
I’m currently about 1/4 of the way done with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I wanted to be a lot further by now, but I forgot to bring it home over the weekend. I’m hoping to continue to read big chunks during my lunch breaks over the next few weeks.
Again…Steve and I went The Melting Pot, and we had our favorite donuts this past weekend…so both of those meals definitely won. No need for further competition 🙂
Anything Exciting Happening Next Week?
Well…I wouldn’t exactly call it “exciting”…But, we will be painting most of our house this weekend. I’m excited to finally get this done, but I can’t say that painting is my favorite activity. Luckily, my dad and his wife and Steve’s parents are going to be helping us. So, because our house is so small, we should get most of the painting done on Saturday. We plan to get pizzas for everyone Saturday night, so I guess there is an upside to the activity haha.
What are you most excited for this weekend?
