This weekend was another ‘mostly unplugged’ time, since Lisa was off again (sweet schedule!). We got loads of time together, figuring out plans for vacation, took the kids to lunch after they played at the high school graduation (it is such an event they have it at the First Arena), and then tried to patch some hoses and Lisa’s bike tire (wasn’t happening!). But we have a spare bike, so we decided to take a trip. It was a blast!
Sunday we had a relaxing breakfast on the deck, then after discussing college visit plans for the summer Lisa and I headed up to Watkin’s Glen to hike the gorge trails. Again, it was awesome.
But I had to laugh, because part of my thought running a double on Friday was that I would be ‘resting’ this weekend. Not so much – we were on the go the whole time! Here are some cool pics:
My Running Summary
Another week without a Sunday or Saturday … but I was just totally feeling the runs this week. The boys were off school so I didn’t have to be exact at getting home to get them going … so I ran more! Because of travel last year that didn’t happen as much, so this year I am enjoying it. I also had my Houston trip, so I took advantage of the great waterway for my runs (and honestly, it wasn’t all that hot while I was there). Let’s take a look:
Sunday: ‘Rest’ day (5 mile hike)
Monday: 18 miles, 2:27 (10 morning, 8 afternoon)
Tuesday: 9.75 miles, Abs, 2:15 plank
Wednesday: 10.50 miles, Abs, 2:39 plank
Thursday: 10.5, Abs, 2:07 plank
Friday: 22.25 miles, Abs, 2:32 plank (12.75 morning, 9.5 evening)
Saturday ‘Rest’ day (7 mile bike, 1 mile walk)
This was a weird week with two rest’ days and two doubles and a total of just over 71 miles – which put me back up over 70 again … not planned but thoroughly enjoyable as the weather was great!
Have you ever hiked a gorge? How often do you run ‘doubles’?
