Weekly review, BIG NEWS, a Fail, and a Cowboy

This week just seemed really busy for some reason, but I still got in some great workouts.

Sunday                         7 mile run, 4 easy last three with speed work.  Felt it in my leg later that day
                                      61 minutes yoga
Monday                        10 mile long slow run
                                      15 minutes yoga post run    
                                      16 minute HIIT
Tuesday                        18 minute HIIT with rowing intervals
Wednesday                  30 minutes hatha flow yoga
                                     6.2 mile trail run, muddy!
Thursday                       35 minutes power flow yoga
Friday                           28 minute HIIT
                                      36 minutes yoga before work
Saturday                       2 hour hike with my husband, I really had plans for a run, but I couldn't resist a hike and some quality outdoor time with Rance either.  I thought this tree growing on the side of a hill in the middle of a rock was a really neat.


To top it off the whole hillside was really steep and it jutted out of the side of the hill like a perch.

So totals for the week were:

Run 23.2
yoga 4
strength 3
hiking 1

Once again a new highest mileage for the week this year (barely) but I don't want to push it!

Okay and the big news... just as I was heading to bed last night I got my invitation and made it official. If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw this, but it's too big to not include here.

Yep this girl is heading to Cali for the first time ever!!

Also I bought this yesterday.  Do you see why it is a big FAIL?

If you answered "decaf" you win. 

And I will leave you with this because it kills me he is so handsome.  and growing up so fast.

 They had a cowboy/cowgirl dress up day in class Friday, of course he had all the fixins already.

Any big news or fails you want to mention here? Tell me I am not the only one who buys decaf by mistake occasionally.


  1. I don't blame you for passing up a run for that gorgeous hike. And congrats on the Ragnar team! Looks like a blast. I've accidentally bought decaf, too. So disappointing. :(

  2. Congrats on Ragnar!!!! I'm doing Ragnar too....but Cape Cod in May!

  3. Congrats on Ragnar-- that is so exciting! Aren't you coming to CO this year too? Or did I make that up?

  4. Eeeek! Congrats on Ragnar!!! Those relays seem like SO MUCH FUN!

  5. Running in Napa Valley sounds amazing! I bet that will be a great Ragnar. SUCH a letdown when you get a great flavor and its decaf. My memory is a major fail lately. Every time I try to order food I end up repeating myself bc I can't remember what I said, and I somehow ordered mayonnaise on my sub Friday, a condiment I hate more than anything.

  6. Yeah, I've done the accidental decaf purchase. But, we do drink it- or I do, anyway- when I want something hot late at night (I don't do hot chocolate or hot cider).

    Congrats on Ragnar!! And on the weekly PR for this year!!

  7. Your little cowboy! What a great pic!

  8. Oh great lookin runs!!! Awesome pics this week...and whoohoo to ragnar. i am stoked for mine in a couple weeks. Napa will be amazing!

    haha...i just bought decaf too. damn.

  9. That's awesome that you're doing a Cali ragnar! I bet the weather will be amazing!

    Haha, see, i would have seen the decaf flavored coffee as a win. I can't find it anywhere and I'm off caffeine until this kid comes!

  10. Yay!!! So excited for you to run Napa! That's awesome! I am just loving your son's outfit...and how serious he looks in it!

  11. Largest fail ever was when I bought unsalted butter in place of the regular ole salted kind. WOW. Seriously. Makes me think I should just put salt on my toast. That shit was gross.

  12. UGH. Decaf coffee??? WHAT IS THE POINT. That is like non-alcoholic beer :( :(

  13. DECAF is the devil's work. My condolences...

  14. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the coffee it sounded great to me (I can only drink DECAF) then I laughed out loud when I read on.


Because I love hearing from you all!
