It Was A Busy Week...

I had a really busy week even though I only worked two days this week. I got so used to not working that those two days felt like a full week. I didn't run a ton of miles but my miles are definitely increasing slowly but surely.

Monday: 120 push ups and PT stretches

Tuesday: 6 Miles

Wednesday: 90 push ups and PT stretches

Thursday: 7.05 Miles

Friday: REST DAY

Saturday: 4.1 Miles: I waited for the rain to stop and then ran out of time since I had a hair appointment. 

Sunday: Planned on running but it didn't happen. I did do 120 push ups though!

TOTAL MILES: 17.15

My mileage for November is up to 51 miles which means that I met my goal for Pile on the Miles! Not much but a sign that things are moving along and I am happy with it. I would love to hit 100 Miles this month but not going to push it! I really I wanted to do that Turkey Trot I have been talking about but I think I am going to sit it out this year. I am kind of enjoying the pressure-free running I have been doing lately. I would love to do more but I know I have to slowly work my way back into things.

Other than running the weekend was pretty busy. On Friday night we attended a Tree Lighting Ceremony at a local mall. We weren't planning on going but we kind of stumbled upon it when we arrived at the mall. It was pretty crowded but we enjoyed it. My son loved the show and the snow fall that took place at the end after Santa Claus arrived. He knows the truth about Santa Claus but he enjoyed the laser show and the fireworks.
Saturday was also busy. I went for a quick run in the morning after he rain stopped and then headed to my hair appointment. I have been considering cutting my hair but too many people have been telling me not to so I didn't. I also started to do a little bit of Christmas shopping. I was surprised at all of the good sales that are going on before Black Friday. I promised myself that I am not going to go crazy this year and just focus on buying for my kids and the other young children in my family. My Saturday also included some preliminary grocery shopping for our Thanksgiving dinner. While grocery shopping, I stumbled upon up the last two packs of Hostess Crumb donuts off of the shelf! I am really bummed that Hostess went bankrupt. I am going to miss my mini 6 packs of Donettes! I grew up eating these things!
Sunday was pretty typical. After church we had lunch and then I took a nap and missed my run with a couple of running buddies :(  It's going to be another short week with only three working days for me this week. I am looking forward to another long weekend!

How was your weekend? Have you started Christmas shopping yet?

  1. Great week! I bought a couple of things and now I'm lulled into a malaise, thinking I've got shopping underway but the reality is I probably won't shop again until Dec. 23. I was a Ho Ho girl. : )

    1. I love those Ho Ho's too but I think I am more of a Ding Dong fan! Everyone seems to be getting their shopping done a little earlier than usual since the stores seem a little crowded.

  2. Ack, Sandy, don't ask me about Christmas shopping! :^)

    You are a machine with those push-ups. Maybe if I did that I'd like my arms better.

    1. Push ups get my mind off of all the running that I have NOT been doing. I have noticed a big difference in my arms. They are a lot tighter and I feel stronger now :)

  3. Very nice week! Hooray for hitting your POTM goal already. I need to check and see where I'm at for my goal on that. So you're telling me if I want any Hostess goodies I better buy them right now?!

    1. The shelves seem to be empty everywhere in my town. I think my chances of scoring any more Hostess products has ended :( It is probably a good thing though! Thank you for all of the encouragement :)

    1. I am glad that I met my goal as well! I should have gone for 100 miles but I didn't want to be disappointed with myself if I didn't meet it.

    1. Oh Stop! You are such a good mommy all the time! You can go next year and the kids will enjoy it. You are on top of things with the Christmas shopping. I think that once Thanksgiving is over I get in the shopping mood.
