Last week = rain + thunder + lightning. The upside to all this rain….it cooled DC a bit! On Sunday we were greeted with some amazing weather for the Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K – wasn’t the Baltimore skyline gorgeous?!? Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for the Weekend Update.
Monday 6/22– 2 mile walk
Tuesday 6/23 – 2 mile walk
Wednesday 6/24 – 2 mile walk + 3 mile run @11:42 min/mile

Friday 6/26 – 2 mile walk
Saturday 6/27 – 6 mile run @12:00 min/mile

**Crickets** Unfortunately I did not make it to the pool this week. I wanted to swim on Saturday, but it poured all day. This upcoming week I will be staying at my parents house for the holiday weekend – I’ll make sure I take advantage of their neighborhood pool.
I clipped in (at the gym) for a 15 minute ride and squeezed in 5 miles before my personal training session. I will need to up my bike time over the next two months.
Like last week, I ran three times! My first run was on Wednesday morning (what what…again?? turning into a morning runner??). Rachel and I went on a 3 mile run @11:42 min/mile (12:00, 11:49, 11:21) through Dupont and Adams Morgan. We chatted the whole way and I was pleasantly surprised with our negative splits (we typically go out and just run and not set intentions to negative split). This week the long run was only 6 miles and the plan was to run with Rachel on Saturday morning. As you all know, it rained all day so I hung out with my nemesis (Mr. TM) for a 6 mile run @12:00 min/mile.
Run #3 (BWC 5k) was the highlight of the week. Recap coming this week, but it was 1/2 mile warm up + 3.1 miles @10:38 min/mile (10:50, 10:33, 10:41) with my old roommate Alyssa (she also ran the 2013 Annapolis Half Marathon – discount code here if you are interested in signing up for that race). My mom walked the race and we got to catch up with Mar at the end of the race.
Random (saw this after the race) – cool basketball flooring (I think by Under Armour). Maryland love!
This past week I tried Baan Thai with my friend Jenn. It was good, but it was on the spicy side (2 chili symbol on the menu, with 4 chili the spiciest). I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to spice.
On Sunday, took a little adventure to Butler’s Orchard.
Picked almost four pounds worth of blueberries!! Yummmmmm!
Also picked english snap peas and blackberries. It was such a nice day to go picking.
Do you have any blueberry recipes you recommend?
How was your weekend?
