My weekend recap, better late than never!
*Friday I took a 1/2 day and went to Phene's school for their end of year picnic. They let all the smaller kids play at the "big" kids playground so she was pretty excited. Plus they had cupcakes which makes every kid happy!
We sat out in this cafes patio area. Which was nice, because it was shaded and there was a good breeze. We were the only people out there until this guy walks out with a purse. I am not talking about a fanny pack, I am talking about a large purse, almost like a bowling bag purse. He sits down and orders a beer and opens up his purse and takes a small kitten out. Now this may not sound creepy, but it was...Here is this guy, by himself, at happy hour, with a kitten in a purse. By the time I got the idea to take a pic the kitten was on the ground and someone had sat down with him. See the tan purse? Guess it was one of those moments you had to see in person.
Saturday afternoon we went to the Blue Hole for an afternoon of swimming.
*Sunday we went swimming again, and did stuff around the house
*Monday Jessica and I met up again for a run in Georgetown. Instead of our normal out and back in the park, we decided to tackle the outer loop hill. It's about a 2.5 mile run to get to it, and it's about 1/4 of a mile long. But it's one of those hills that goes on and on and gets really a lot steeper at the end. (Again , wish I had some pics). We were planning on about 5 miles again but ended up with 6.2. It was a hard run and really humid, but I was happy that I got two sort of longish runs in on the weekend.
So that was my Memorial Day Weekend.
My workout plans this week:
Monday - 6.2 mile run
Tuesday - Danes Upper Body Fusion (done)
Wed - Dane's Core Fusion + 2 mile run (done)
Thursday - Run Group? or Danes Lower Body Fusion + 2 Mile Run
Friday - Danes Upper Body Fusion
Saturday - 5 Mile Run with Jessica @ Town Lake
My mileage is increasing and I do have to say that I have been getting some tightness in my calves again. I have started rolling out more which I hope helps. Per my Runner's World mileage tracker I did 18 miles last week. I really would like to step it up to 20 and hold that for a month and see how it goes. I think that this time around if I want the miles I will need to work on it on the back end with roll outs, stretching, and I will need to fit that one day of yoga in.
Hope everyone's week is going well.
I have some exciting news on the race front which I will share with you later this week!
