This week definitely felt like the start of summer now that work has slowed down a little for Jason!
We made a batch of homemade peanut butter chip ice cream…
…we grilled for dinner…
…got native strawberries for strawberry shortcake…
…and spent a day outside at the pool!
Madison clearly has us well trained, she throws her bone in the pool and we of course immediately fetch it and bring it back to her.
We also went to my god-daughter’s 4th birthday and man does that kid know how to throw a party! Pirate themed with an 18′ inflatable water slide and a make your own sundae bar!
And we played the BEST party game – each adult was paired with a kid wearing a shower cap covered in shaving cream. Then we THREW CHEESE DOODLES AT THEM and the pair who stuck the most cheese doodles on their kids head won! Seriously, best party game ever.
Monday – 3 mile run
Tuesday – rest day
Wednesday – 75 minute yoga class & 30 minutes elliptical
Thursday – 5 mile run
Friday – rest day
Saturday – 8 mile run
Jason joined me for the last 3 miles to kick off his Dumbo training (better late than never!).
Sunday – rest day
Weekly Mileage – 16 miles
2014 Mileage -277 miles
Got in my planned runs, but unfortunately that’s about it! Didn’t exactly mean to take 3 rest days but I had a fun week finally getting to spend some time with Jason so I can’t complain!
Through this next round of marathon training I’m going to post my training plan for the upcoming week to help keep me on track – I feel like if it’s in writing (or out there on the interwebs!) I’m more likely do stick to it!
MARATHON TRAINING WEEK 1

whoa, how do I get invited to that party?!
I know, right??! And I got her an Anna dress for her birthday so there was also a brief Frozen sing-a-long when she tried it on : )
All I got for my frozen sing along efforts were dirty looks from my co-workers…
I’ve never heard of that cheez doodle game–how fun! Although, it is a waste of perfectly good cheez doodles… Mmm cheez doodles…
Haha, I know, that’s what we said too, but trust me, throwing cheese doodles at kids was totally worth the loss!
I love peanut butter ice cream. B&J’s had a peanut butter cup one a while ago but they only had it for a couple years.
Me too, anything peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite!
That party game is hilarious! Looks like your summer is off to an excellent start! 🙂
Haha, yeah, I am so excited for summer (and for Jason to not be so busy at work!). And yes, the “throw cheese doodles at kids” game was honestly hysterical!
What a fun party! I want to play the cheese doodle game 😉 I like the idea of posting your upcoming week’s game plan – should definitely help with accountability. P.S. that ice cream looks delicious!
Thanks Heather, the ice cream came out really good! We make a few different flavors but the peanut butter chocolate is our favorite! And yes, I am totally slacking with my running recently, so I’m hoping pre-posting my workouts will help keep me on track!
I think I need to post my training plan too…make me more accountable to follow it.
And ummm, yeah, I’m around and I’m SURE your God-daughter would have had no problem with me, a random completely stranger, crashing her party to play that game!
