Weekly Recap

I love this shirt!  I ordered if from another
blog that I follow.  Just her out
Mile Posts 
I survived!  Being the wife of a high school band director you just have to expect that he is going to be out at least two or three nights a week.  Whether it is marching band rehearsal, jazz band rehearsal, a band parents meeting or a concert, there is always something going on and it really never seems to die down.  The worst time is when it is musical time, that is when it gets crazy.   I really shouldn't complain because it only happens once a year but it is a LONG week when it does.  He is out of the house, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then following weekend Friday and Saturday!  So it just makes a long week of work, dinner, homework, baths and bedtime with only one set of hands.  Which also means that it makes it near impossible to go running unless I go in the morning and lately I just can't get up.  It is so cozy in my bed and so darn dark out.  So this weeks recap is not really that exciting. 

No running during the week.

Saturday: 9.64 miles 
Check out my awesome post run meal.  A cheeseburger with bacon, fried egg, lettuce, and ketcup on white bread.  SO Yummy, thanks Dave.  If he didn't make it, I would have never made it myself and strangely enough it was my idea to add the egg.  TOTALLY not like me.  

Sunday: 5.08 miles
Dave didn't have time to make another awesome post run meal so I had my go to...peanut butter and jelly.  

Total Miles this week: 14.72
Total Miles for the Year: 186.18

I also started the AB/Plank challenge this week:  I have done day one and day 2.  I will  do my timed plank in a little bit!  

One of Ashley's favorite things to do is to dance.  When she is cranky and won't let me put her down I put on music and we dance.  She loves it!  I love to spin her and see the biggest and most beautiful smile around.  For those of you didn't know I used to do Zumba all the time.  I even taught classes.  Needless to say I love to dance too!  One of the things that I noticed really fast after stopping Zumba was my love handles were back.  So whenever we have a dance party I make sure to do some moves that I know hit my waistline.  I am hoping that I can work that waistline while dancing with my kids.  Tonight we had a full blown dance party, Mom, Dad, Jeremy, Ian and Ashley dancing all over the living room.  I always wonder if people can see us through the big window and if they can, I wonder what they are thinking.  I hope that we are making them think out loud, perhaps saying wow those people are really having a good time because although it might look like we are crazy I love our family dance parties and even the multiple games of freeze dance, which the boys love.  

Next weeks plan:
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: More running unless we don't have school because of yet another DUMB snowstorm.  
Wednesday: 4 miles 
Thursday: 4 miles (1 mile warm-up, 2 miles hard, 1 mile jog)
Friday: 5 miles 
Saturday: 5k Sandy Hook Run for the Families  Very excited to run this race!
Sunday: 11 miles 

Do you have dance parties at your house?
Have you ever seen anything strange when looking in people's windows?
