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

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!
