Thursday 7/10 – 2 miles running on the track
Friday 7/11 – 1/2 mile jog + 60 minutes personal training
Saturday 7/12 – Rest day + Bridal shower hosting
Sunday 7/13 – 1 mile walking + 5 miles running
Total: 9 miles
Running-wise it was a low mileage week. The training plan called this a recovery week, but I missed a day of running (I wanted to get at least 6 more miles in). This past Thursday I was hoping to join my training group for the weekly track workout, but by the time I got home and changed it would have been too late + it looked like it was about to storm. Instead I headed to the local high school track for the planned track workout.
On Sunday I slept past my alarm and missed my training group run. By the time I woke up it was too hot to run. I struggled to get myself out of the apartment for an early evening run. While it was not the best, I am glad I got my mileage in and enjoyed the DC monuments by night.
On the non-running front, Friday night was really nice and relaxing – it was spent watching the Lego movie (really funny btw). On Saturday I hosted a bridal shower for my friend Patty. Here are some pics, the theme was Spain.
I made the chalkboards – a DIY post coming this week.
Tapas and cupcakes – delicious!
Me and the bride to be.
How was your weekend?
Have you hosted a bridal or baby shower before?
