The first week of May has started off nicely. It’s great not having a set schedule for a change but I do have a half marathon, the Hippie Chick Half Marathon next Saturday. It will be nice to run it for fun. But here’s what I did last week:
Monday – Worked out with hubby and did 21 Day Fix Extreme Plyo Fix. It wasn’t too bad and I liked using weights. Then I ran an easy 3.01 miles.Tuesday – Did 21 Day Fix Extreme Upper Fix with hubby and then ran 3.07 miles with some strides.Wednesday – Rest Day.
Thursday – Ran 6.0 miles. Ran a Fartlek for some of it, I did 6×30 sec fast with about 2 min recovery. It was warmer than usual out and I gave up on the Fartlek earlier than I had planned and did the rest easy. I just wasn’t feeling it.Friday – Ran an easy 5k for Cinco de Mayo.Saturday – Ran 10 early miles. It was a great start to the morning on a beautiful day.Sunday – Rest day.
Total miles = 25.18 miles. I’d say it was a great first week of May. Got in some good workouts with hubby and good miles. I’m looking forward to the Hippie Chick Half Marathon on Saturday. I’ll try to run it easy and just enjoy the course. 🙂

As for the other highlights of the week:
On Wednesday, since my parents were in town, we went to downtown Portland for some shopping. It’s always great to spend time with them and I’m thankful when they help out especially with watching the kiddos.The weather has been off and on but the kiddos got in some biking.On Friday, the kiddos school had Muffins for Mom, an event to have muffins, fruit, juice and/or coffee with the kiddos.After my long run on Saturday we went to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Gotta love getting free tickets from work. It was a funny movie.Afterwards we went to the new Orenco Woods Nature Park. I wanted to show the kiddos these cool sculptures that I’ve run by a couple of times.
The sculpture above is called Head over Heels by Patrick Dougherty and is made of local willow. Pretty cool, huh?
How’d your week go? See any good movies lately? Training for any races?
