Can you say SUNSHINE?
I say that because there was ample sunshine, and summer-like temps, for most of the week! Even the humidity played nice, for the most part. And the wind? Well, it definitely had its moments, but it didn't give me too much attitude.
Overall, it was a pretty busy week, but that's just the way I like it.
Before I share all the sunshiny details, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 1:00 (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
So here's what went down this week:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair! Warm temps (actually, pretty hot temps LOL) outside usually mean freezing cold temps inside. My solution? A light-weight, ruffly-sleeved blouse. The flowy fabric has enough coverage that the (too cold) air conditioning won't be a frigid distraction at the office.
The hubs and I went to our first picnic in a l-o-n-g time Thursday evening...and, he promised everyone a sour cream raisin pie. I usually make this pie once a year, for his birthday, and he's the only one that will eat it. It's a high-maintenance endeavor with cooking the raisins (to plump them), then cooking the sour cream mixture (in a double-boiler) and making the meringue. There's a reason I only do this once a year, and it's definitely not a crowd pleaser. Amazingly, we only brought home two leftover slices.
This week's flowers...still more peonies to admire, fragrant catmint, and the first of the hosta blooms made their appearance.
...and, finally, my May totals took me a bit by surprise. I didn't realize how close I was to hitting the century mark for my running miles!
So, that's a wrap. It feels oh-so-good to finally have summer-like temps on a consistent basis. We all know I've waited a long 8-9 months for them!
How did your week play out? Did the summer temps arrive? Any races on the calendar? Sour cream raisin pie: yay or no way?
