week in review; may 19–25


Sorry for being two days late, but the weekend was a whirlwind and I barely had a chance to sit down! This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but for some reason, even though I had set up the schedule to post it, it didn't go up. I have to figure out why that was...

Monday, May 19: rest day

Tuesday, May 20: rest day

Wednesday, May 21: 2 mile walk

Thursday, May 22: 2.65 mile run

Friday, May 23: rest day

Saturday, May 24: #SF10; Soldier Field 10 Mile (unofficially 10.4 miles, official race 10 miles)

Sunday, May 25: rest day

The week itself was pretty uneventful. Thursday during my lunch break, I went to Fleet Feet in Old Town to grab the Soldier Field 10 Mile bibs and shirts for my mom and myself. That was a breeze, as are all pick ups at this location. The only snag was that the lady helping me had trouble finding our bibs at first, because we had signed up earlier in the week. They weren't in the pile they should have been (if we had signed up earlier), but she did eventually find them.

Friday night after work I met up with some couples at our friends brewery. We had some beer, pizza, and great conversations. I headed home around 8:45 so I could get my gear together and get some rest for the 10 mile race in the morning. (So far, my research of eating some greasy food and having a beer or two the night before a race has turned out pretty good results on race day. I shall continue my research until I have more conclusive results.)

Saturday morning was a 4:30 wake up call to get to Soldier Field for the 10 mile race. It was a beautiful day for a race, which I'll recap eventually. I know I'm a bit behind on my race recaps, so to any one (if there actually is any one) that has been waiting to read them, I apologize. I hope to catch up in the next few weeks. The rest of the day was filled with a little bit of reading, laundry, and cleaning. Sunday was another day of cleaning, and then I went to my brother's for a BBQ.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day, and was able to spend time with family and/or friends. I'm so thankful to all of the military men and women, past and present, that have fought for our freedom, especially those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Monday recap will be in next week's weekly review post.

How did your weekend go? Any races? BBQs? Swim time?

    1. Dog sitting sounds like it could be pretty entertaining!

  2. No races for me- lots of celebrating though! My brother graduated college in NYC and then my family/bf threw me a surprise birthday party on Memorial Day. It was a great weekend! :-)

    Can't wait to see how your 10 miler went!

    1. Was it wonderful having a weekend off of races? I have one this weekend, and the thought of sleeping past 5 am sounds heavenly haha. Sounds like a lot of fun! Happy belated birthday! I've never had a surprise party thrown for me, but always thought it would be wonderful if someone did :)
