Weekly Report

I don't have a lot to report in the way of running this week. I ran an easy, short run Monday and a normal run on Wednesday. That one felt really good, and I hit my groove earlier than usual. However, with my little guy's birthday party this morning, I wasn't able to run my long run. I'm ok with that. I don't skip runs often, and I may try to run or ride tomorrow. Even if I don't, it's ok. I stayed up late cleaning house for the party and couldn't sleep well after my daughter came into our room around 4:30 this morning. Sleep won this morning.

So, this week's mileage report is easy:
Weekly: 7.3 miles
YTD: 440.8 miles

I don't mind missing out on the run this morning. Ryan's party was a success! We had all of our family here along with a few sets of friends. We set up a water slide, two sprinklers and a bubble station. We purposefully planned it early in the day to avoid the heat. We had canopies set up for shade for the adults, so it wasn't horrible. I think the kids really enjoyed the party.

On a different note, I've been feeling kinda crafty this week. I pulled out my sewing machine, and after only minimal frustrations getting it set up, I sewed new valances and a matching pillow for my daughter's room and a pillow for my son. I also made my daughter a pillowcase dress. I have material for a few more of those and a different type of dress I'm going to attempt for her as well.

Something about being creative and using my hands to make something that didn't exist before is completely satisfying. I have a quilt that is in mid-process. It's been that way for years. Maybe I'll actually finish it this summer.


  1. Weekly: 7.03
    YTD: 316.3

    It's the end of July, and I feel like I'm never going to get my 1100k.... I know, I know. I was pregnant for first 6 months and recovering for the next few. But I'm still going to try to make it.

  2. Weekly: 10 miles
    YTD: 181 miles

    Slow week, but starting this week I'll be hitting the training hard for the 10K...which I realized is now NEXT MONTH! Crazy. I'll have to start getting up in the mornings to run before the family wakes up because its finally hot here. Fortunately it will only last a few weeks.
