The Weekly Chase #188!

Happy Monday, happy 9th birthday to my sweet Sawyer, and happy first day of school for us! What a day!!! I am sad to see the summer end but excited about the new school year! I'm hoping both me and my boys have a great first day back!

This weekend we didn't do a whole lot. I was hoping the days would last longer than they did!

Saturday morning was the first week of half marathon training! I ran 7 miles! I'll tell you more about my run this week!

Archie also had his first play date at the dog park with my friend Lora's dogs. But....Archie wasn't very nice to the other dogs. He was very aggressive....growling and barking and showing his teeth at them. We were shocked! He's so sweet to people! It makes me wonder what happened to him in the 2 years before we got him poor thing. I'm hoping eventually he will learn to like other dogs. Any suggestions?

Andy had to keep the leash on him at the dog park because of how aggressive he was being.

After the traumatic dog park activity we had some lunch and then went to Lora's house to swim. It was a fun afternoon! 

Sunday morning I ran and then watched the men's Olympic Marathon! I was so sad that Meb had a tough race. But I was so happy that Galen Rupp won the bronze medal for the USA!!! So amazing watching these amazing athletes! I've so enjoyed the Olympics and I'm so sad they are over! What are we gonna watch on TV now??!! 

The rest of Sunday was spent getting ready for the first week of school. I also went birthday shopping for Sawyer!

That afternoon we met my sister-in-law at the park for some last minute summer fun!

For dinner we headed to the Brendel's house for an end of the summer dinner! And Kirstin baked Sawyer cupcakes for his birthday so we had an early birthday celebration! Fun!!!

Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)

Here are my goals from last week!
  • Goal #1: Run every day! Yes! And what is so run streak days go right along with the month...for example today is 8/22 and also day 822 of my streak! ;-)
  • Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. 50% I did a little better this week but not every day like I need to be. 
  • Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. Yes!
  • Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week. Yes! This will get harder now that school is starting and I won't get to take my morning walk. 
  • Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles. No. But this will change this week since I won't have time in the mornings to run as far. 
  • Goal #6: Take at least one walk this week. Yes! I took a walk after my runs every morning!
  • Goal #7: Strength train at least 2 times this week. 50%. I got in one day of strength training. 
  • Goal #8: Start crate training Archie. We got the crate and have started putting his treats in there. But we haven't locked him in yet. 
  • Goal #9: Finish up everything in my classroom and for back to school. Yes! I'm ready for the first day!
  • Goal #10: Birthday shop for Sawyer. Yes!

Here are my goals for this week! 

Every week goals:

Goal #1: Run every day! 
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. 
Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories.
Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week.

Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles.
Goal #6: Take at least one walk this week.
Goal #7: Strength train at least 2 times this week.

Goal #8: Survive the first week of school and getting back into a routine. Since we now have a dog to consider I've got to manage my time in the morning before work since I will need to make sure he goes potty before I leave. We don't have a fenced in yard (yet...hoping we get one soon) so this will involve walking him before I leave. 

Goal #9: Make Sawyer's birthday as special as I can considering it's on the first day of school. Such a busy day but I want to make sure he gets the special birthday he deserves! 

So that's my plan for this week. It's mainly going to be about getting us all back into a routine and fitting everything I want to do (run and strength train) in. I hope you all have a great week!

QOTD: What goals are you chasing this week?
