Monday was the first day of school! I had a great first day with my pre-k 4 class! I'm so very blessed to work with some amazing teachers!!!
My boys also had a great first day of school! I can't believe I have a 6th and 4th grader now! They are growing up way too fast!
Not only was it the first day of school...but it was also Sawyer's 9th birthday! Most kids would not like that but he was excited since he loves school! He started that morning with chocolate chip waffles! It's tradition for us to have a birthday candle in our breakfast!
Later that evening he got to open his presents! Then we went to eat dinner at his choice (Moe's Southwest Grill) with friends! Then it was cake at home! Sweet boy wanted a white cake with chocolate icing but he wanted me to make half of the icing vanilla since his brother doesn't like chocolate. So sweet!
Tuesday was another first day of school for me with my pre-k 2 class! 2 year olds are so exhausting and I came home with quite the headache lol! But first I made sure to go vote for our city mayor!
I got to destress some that night with a good workout at the gym with my hubby!
Wednesday I had a pretty good day but the early wake ups were starting to get to me. I was so tired that night!
Thursday was another stressful day in the 2 year old class. When I left school my boss told me to go get Starbucks lol! So of course I did!
This week I also got stung by a wasp walking out my front door to take Archie for a walk. It hurt so bad! But the worst was 2 days later when it got swollen, red, warm, and itchy. Not fun.
It's been an adjustment for Archie not having us home all day. But he has done amazing! He goes into his crate while I'm gone and doesn't complain a bit. Such a sweet boy!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had a great week of runs and workouts! I've gotten in 2 strength training workouts this week!!! So proud of myself since it was such a busy first week of school!
- Friday- 2.6 mile run in 20:55 average pace 8:01
- Saturday- 7.1 mile run in 1:03:18 average pace 8:59
- Sunday- 2.6 mile run in 21:16 average pace 8:08
- Monday- 2.2 mile run in 17:23 average pace 8:06
- Tuesday- 2.3 mile run in 18:33 average pace 8:11, Strength training: Triceps, Chest, and Shoulders
- Wednesday- 2.2 mile run in 17:36 average pace 8:06
- Thursday- 2.3 mile run in 19:20 average pace 8:19, Strength training: Legs
So that was my week of runs and workouts! I'm pretty pleased considering we were all trying to get back into the routine of school and work! And I'm so glad I got in more than one session of strength training this week!
Tomorrow I will be running 7-8 miles for half marathon training. I'm hoping for another slow and easy run! I need to be sure to slow my pace to ensure a great run!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm planning on relaxing lol!
QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week?
