Sunday Vacation Day, Award-Worthy and Weekly Summary!

Happy Sunday! Well, actually by the time you read this I will already be on vacation! WooHoo! I will say in advance that my intent is to be ‘mostly unplugged’ all week … so I apologize in advance if I don’t reply to comments, read blogs, or answer emails in a timely fashion. But for me, these unplugged times are really important since I tend to be an ‘always online’ person.

In my absence I haven’t set up any guests to post … instead I have pulled out three of my earliest posts – ones that seem to really resonate even now. I reworked them all a bit and reposted – hopefully you will enjoy!

Award-Worthy

When I did my Very Inspiring Blogger award post I sorta cheesed on nominating others … and it has bugged me since. I mean, it was one thing earlier this year when I had two in a row and had nominated all my faves in the first one … or even when I did the mega-awards post more recently. This time? I just didn’t make an effort – and worse yet, I realized that there are a bunch of new awesome blogs I am reading that deserve attention!

So here is what I am doing – I am just going to list 25 30 great blogs I read regularly, including old faves as well as new discoveries. If they would like to do a ‘Very Inspiring’ post (which is really mostly about listing a bunch of things about yourself) – great. But either way I encourage everyone to check them out!

My Running Summary

Another week without a Sunday or Saturday … and in spite of the heat and humidity I really enjoyed my runs. That said, having the cool dry breezy air of Friday was just amazing! I’ll take 365 days of THAT every year, thanks!

The funny thing was hitting my driveway and the Garmin saying 18.73 after I hit the button … and I really just didn’t care enough to make it 18.75 … oh well!

Sunday: ‘Rest’ day (Hike the gorge)
Monday: 10.25 miles, 2:32 plank
Tuesday: 11.4 miles, Abs, 2:17 plank
Wednesday: 9.75 miles, Abs, 2:39 plank
Thursday: 10.5, Abs, 2:07 plank
Friday: 18.73 miles, Abs, 2:32 plank
Saturday ‘Rest’ day (getting ready for vacation!)

This was an awesome week with a couple of late nights (Chris went to Fallout Boy/Paramour and got home after 1:30), but somehow I managed a total of just over 60 miles.

Have a great week and I look forward to catching up when I return!

    • Thanks Danielle πŸ™‚ I love reading useless facts – and phobias, and crap that annoys you … because it always makes me smile! Our trip so far is awesome πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for the shout out! Sounds like you’re having an amazing summer! Have a great trip this week, you definitely deserve to disconnect for a while and just relax. Also thanks for listing all the blogs since there are some I don’t read but will definitely be checking out πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Michele – it is funny how quickly I eased into your blog as a fave so that I was surprised at how soon after you started I was hooked! Thanks – you know well the value of down time (important theme on many blogs) and while walking 10 or so miles today wasn’t ‘rest’, it was loads of fun πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! It has started off great, and yeah I know my son had a great time with a great bunch of friends, and said the show was a blast. Would love to hit up a jazz show in NYC while we’re here, but not gonna happen …

  2. Thanks for the link/nomination, I’m in progress of a series of responses to the “very inspiring thing”. Enjoy your unplugged time, it is so hard to disconnect but feels so refreshing when you do.

    • Loving your responses, the great expansive thoughts – great take on this and something I fully plan to steal for the next time I do one of those award posts!
