Both Monday and Tuesday ended up being rest days because I was super exhausted at the beginning of the week for some reason. I was still exhausted on Wednesday and ended up skipping my track run with the group for just doing some DDP yoga at home.
Thursday was another rest day since I left early to drive up to New Jersey.
Friday morning I woke up early and ran arpund the neighborhood by my uncle's house. I only had a certain amount of time since I was on kid watching duty starting at 7:30 so I only got in 2.8 miles instead of the planned 3. But overall it was a good run.
Friday afternoon, I took the kids rock climbing and boy, was that a workout! It was much harder than I expected but it was really enjoyable. The kids had a great time too and got a chance to work off some energy. I don't have any photos since I forgot to take my phone. Blogger fail.
Saturday, I did my long run at a park near my uncle's house with some great trails. I was doing a virtual 10k this week and the training plan called for 6-7 miles, so they worked well together. The trails were super tough though. My first 10k was around 1 hour and 19 minutes while this one was 1 hour and 32 minutes! There were a lot of elevation changes plus the fact that the terrain was really varied. There was gravel, sand, and dirt as well as asphalt. After about 4 miles on the trails, I ended up doing the rest on a paved loop and you can see the variance in my pace. Going around in circles wasn't as interesting as the trail but much easier!
Saturday afternoon I took the kids bowling so that was some more activity there as well.
I ended the week on Sunday with some Jillian Michael's yoga and then drove back home. It was a fun but exhausting week but I had a great time hanging out with my niece and nephew (my cousin's kids). I can't believe how old they've gotten. He's definitely getting to be a teenager!
I hope you all had a great weekend :)
