Our weekend actually began Thursday evening when Joe got through with work; we drove up to Atlanta for the Peachtree Road Race! We planned some more fun for the weekend, including staying with our friends Andrew and Jacqui and their two boys. We got to their house on Thursday around 9:30pm. We hung around and did some catching up until after midnight! Late night for us all!
We decided to sleep in (including Baby Fish!) and slowly started our day by watching TV and playing with Andrew and Jacqui's kids. Both of them enjoyed playing with our daughter!
We ate lunch, hung around the house some more, and got ready to head to the Atlanta Braves game! On the way to the game, we picked up a few more of Joe's friends from college, as well as swung by the Peachtree Road Race expo!
My Independence Day began with an Atlanta 4th of July tradition--the Peachtree Road Race!
The rest of the evening was pretty low-key. We just hung out at home, listened to our neighbors shoot off fireworks, and had a photo shoot with a certain little girl in her 4th-of-July dress.
Joe decided to go down to Daytona for the NASCAR race, so Baby Fish and I had a pretty low-key morning. We hung out and watched TV until it was time to go to church!
Training Log 6/29-7/5
The past week or two, I've been slacking a little bit on the workouts. I've at least gone for a walk just about every day. This week, I had a race to run, so I purposely took it easy this week to save my legs up for Saturday.
Monday-short neighborhood walk
Tuesday-short neighborhood walk
Wednesday-short neighborhood walk + 2.5 mile run + leg/core exercises
Saturday-Peachtree Road Race 10K
Sunday-Yoga Fix + 10-Minute Ab Fix DVDs
As I mentioned in my mid-year goals check in, I'm planning to take these next two weeks to decide if I'm going to run the Richmond Marathon. I've found a Hal Higdon training plan that I think would work for me, so I'm going to focus on following the first two weeks for it, as well as working in 2 strength workouts. Let's see how it goes!
Question for you: How did you celebrate the 4th of July? Did you run a race this weekend?
