Oh Hey, May

This weekend, B came home. And it stopped raining. So yeah, it was a good weekend.

B had been gone for 6 days for a work trip. And it rained for pretty much 5.76 of those days. But this weekend, FINALLY the sun came out!

I started the weekend with a treadmill run while B watched FW. I got in 8 miles while watching Bridget Jones’s Baby.

Then it was time for the Kentucky Derby party! I did have a hat that I wore but it didn’t get pictured.

That night, B and I had plans to go out for a belated anniversary celebration. We saw Something Rotten! and it was AWESOME. 

We got a late dinner and drinks after the show. 

Sunday morning it was FINALLY NOT RAINING, so we took a walk around downtown with FW. It was chilly and windy, but seeing the blue skies was great. 

American Ninja Warrior is filming in Cleveland this week, so we stopped by the set and watched them finish setting up.

We spent the afternoon cleaning, meal prepping and watching the Cavs sweep the Raptors!

We didn’t have our usual Sunday dinner, so B made us some. He cooked us his own take on fish and chips and mushy peas and it was great!! I’d have this over traditional fish and chips any day 🙂

I ended the night catching up on work and finishing a little cleaning. After a week without B, the apartment needed some TLC 🙂

Some questions for you:

  • Do you watch American Ninja Warrior?
  • Which NBA team do you root for?

I’m linking up with Katie and the weekly wraps.

Training Tuesday: Race Month is Here!

I can’t believe race month is here! Just a few more Training Tuesday posts before it will be time for my official Cleveland Marathon Ambassador wrap up post for half marathon and 8k!

BUT I’m getting ahead of myself. Speaking of being an ambassador, this week, we had a meet up with a few of the other race ambassadors. It was great to get some swag (check out my cool beer mug!), see some of the goodies (the marathon medal is HUGE!) AND  of course, catch up with my other running buddies.

Now, onto this week’s runs.

Sunday: None! B wasn’t home and I didn’t get a chance to get in a run with FW. Which was fine, my body needed to recover from the previous day’s 10 miler.

Monday: 5.85 miles on the treadmill. Had not much sleep thanks to a cranky baby at night, but was happy to be able to get in a run after Sunday’s off day.

Tuesday: 4.5 miles. 9×400. Did the 400s at 7.7 pace and did a warmup and cool down.

Wednesday: 3ish (?) miles. The treadmill shut down around 1.3ish miles, but in not sure exactly how much I had run. Got on a different machine for 1.7 more  and before I knew it, FW was up crying for me. Glad to have gotten in 3ish miles. minute tempo run on the schedule.  Started out super tired,  but ended up running a little longer- 40 minutes,  then cooling down. All done inside, on the treadmill.

Thursday: 5.15 treadmill miles. 4.15 or so running and 1 mile walking.

Friday: None – rest day!

Saturday: 6.29 miles outside!! 2nd Sole, a local running store had set up some training runs for the Cleveland marathon, half and 10k events. While I should have done the half marathon training run (12 miles), Saturday was my sister-in-law’s wedding, so due to timing (and not wanting to be super tired), I did only the 10k. It started out cool and rainy but ended up being decent weather for a few miles. AND it’s always nice to step outside my comfort zone and run with a group!

And that was it for the week – 24ish miles! 

Some questions for you:

  • Do you like to run in groups?
  • What’s your ideal running weather?
