We had a half-Staycation / half-normal (nonworking) weekend. Our nanny dropped the kids off at 8am on Sunday as planned — we had two (!) kid-free nights and days, and that was about right.
It was a nice treat — we went out to dinner Friday night, did projects around the house, and cooked on Saturday night. I finally bought new running shoes (AND socks, AND a tank, AND a sports bra). Oh! And we dealt with house-related stuff, as we are in the process of going under contract! (Wish us luck there — I feel like we deserve a smooth process at this point after 10 months on the market!).
Yesterday I took G to MyGym, supervised a playdate, and cleaned up the kitchen about 395734 times (at least, that’s what it felt like). It was a nice day. I am, however, looking forward to the end of basketball season when we can more easily do a family outing.
M – nothing
T – 4.2 mi run, not sure of pace because strava was acting up!
W – BB 21DF Dirty 30, 8 and 12 lb weights
R – 3.3 mi, also strava problems, b/c my splits say mile 1 16:59, mile 2 9:58, mile 3 10:19, 0.2 mi 9:11. We’ll just say ~10:00/mi.
F – BB 21DF Upper. 8 and 12 lb weights. Total pushups: 29 on toes / 17 on knees
S – First “long” run of half training! 5.07 mi, 10:14/mi ave. Done a little later in the morning so it was 83F. Felt good!
S – BB 21DF Pilates
This week is going to be complex. I am on call (starting tomorrow) and am anxious to make it a GOOD call week — it’s actually my last ‘real’ call week of the year, which is exciting! I am going to work very hard at being positive and calm when my phone buzzes. Thinking about Atomic Habits, maybe I should pair the sound of my pager with eating a chocolate morsel or something 🙂
I have really tried to look forward and plan each day, though, and my mantra is going to be “I HAVE ENOUGH TIME.” Because I do. After today, it’s going to be a work-focused week, and I’m rested enough that this should be a welcome shift.
Our very exciting dinner plan:
M – salmon / rice / some kind of veg (Annabel vetoed sweet potatoes)
T – taco night (taco salads / bowls)
W – leftovers
R – broccoli-chevre soup from Run Fast Eat Slow & bread (kids love this soup, or at least they did historically – you never know these days)
F – leftovers
S – out
S – pizza delivery
