Weekly Recap & Pairings

Heyyyyyyyyy!  How are youuuuu?  I hope your (last) week went very well -- it seems like several of us blogging--runners are in a rut with running, blogging, or both.  *Group hug* because for real, we're all in this together.  I'm hoping to read some great news from y'all today, and if not, I'll read as a *listener* (sometimes that's all we need -- someone to just listen).

Last week went pretty well for me.  I'm not sure if that 10K got the stick out of my butt, but I had a solid training week.  Windy had a wonderful week, too, in smashing her weekly mileage PR!

Monday started off with a solo spin with heavy climbs.

And it was finally cold enough for me to open up my hot chocolate drawer at school!  Work husband and I enjoyed a cup during our prep -----> perfect.

RANDOM but AWESOME pairing:

Tuesday morning brought on a rainy, cold run with Windy.  3.17 soppy miles, and Windy didn't even mind getting all wet.

Another awesome pairing:

Wednesday was another Windy run.

Thursdays are my rest day, and thus, are all about the giggles.

Friday was finally here, which left Windy and I with another 5K.

It was also our Halloween fun fair at my school!  Specials Teachers (me on the left, work husband in the middle [he's 6.5], and our Art Teacher on the right) stick together on things like this:  We were Rock, Paper, Scissors this year.  For some reason, I thought that scissors should look angry and raw!

Windy and I got up early to rock out a four-miler.  It was so crisp and beautiful out, and I believe I spied a few snowflakes.

Harry cheered me on from home. <3

My second job = a sports administrator for my school district, so I get to go to all of the fun things on the weekends, such as our City Championships for Cross-Country.

Most of these days include a lunch I can eat right out of the box, and Starbucks doesn't disappoint.

We had Sophs this weekend (though we didn't go ANYWHERE -- Harry was feeling crummy, I felt pretty cold, and I think Sophs just felt like being lazy), but we kept with tradition =

Hot chocolate + "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".  I felt like expressing my true feelings for Lucy by way of Snapchat.

Sunday morning was to bring my longest run in quite a while, and finish out my biggest weekly mileage week in over a year.  I figured that this called for a totally new playlist.

So much Olafur Arnalds.  He's my music bae.<3

It was cold and sunny outside, and the new running tunes did their job!  Feeling motivated and strong after I finished, I celebrated (after taking a looooong, hot shower) by taking two naps over the course of four hours.

What do you think we should pair with this?  A tasty stout?  Steamed milk?  Double up with hot cocoa?

What were your miles like this week?  

Is it cool or cold where you live?

Let's get real and talk about food:  FAVORITE kind of cookie?!


  1. I'm trying to decide today: studio yoga or yin yoga at home? Hmmmm

    Great costume--when my sister and I were in Palm Springs we saw a great rock, paper, scissors sculpture!

  2. Lunch in a box is better than something else in a box, if you know what I mean ;D
    The costumes came out so well! AND I NEED THOSE OREOS
