We really lucked out on a gorgeous Texas spring day, with the light rain holding off til after dinner.
We spent the morning and afternoon, with a lovely and delicious dinner with the Butler family.
*beautiful Butler ladies*
Everything was so good and we all ate way too much.
It was so fun to have this family all together again.
One of those days I was wishing my parents had been here to join us...
Louis decided he was up to dying some Easter eggs last night at 9:30pm.
I decided to follow the "baking" eggs trend.
So....it works really well, unless you forget the eggs are in the oven and overbake them by about 30 minutes. Then they just stink. Albumin was seeping through the shell and turned them kind of a spotted brown. Louis thought this was cool. I just thought it was kind of weird.
Nothing a little dye and glitter couldn't solve.
This guy thought he needed in on the action too (he doesn't miss out on ANYTHING). He is that *great* kind of dog.
The rest of the week went down kind of like this....
Monday - Barre
Tuesday - Lifetime Run - Run for Boston 2.92 miles, 1.5 miles prior, then 1.08 miles with Louis once we got home (yes the missing .08 bugged the hell out of me!)
This event had 126 runners! A record for this group AND a drastic and welcome change from my previous experience with this group (a few years ago). When I first joined it'd be a good night when 6 people showed up! I met a lot of new friends and even scored a free t shirt!
The only thing I didn't *love* was that it was only 3 miles. My mileage that night was a bit broken, but I managed to get 5.5 miles in, BUT running with my frunners made it *so* fun! Great conversation and lots of laughs always trump mileage.
Wednesday - Barre & a great 6.7 mile run outside. My first jaunt back on my favorite route. I killed the hills (totally attributing this to all of my barre practice.
Thursday - 5 miles at the gym + barre
Friday - 2 miles on my own
Saturday - I had *wanted* to go to Pure Barre that morning, but chose sleep instead. The only PB'ing I did that day was PB m&m's and PB eggs.
My beautiful sister cousin got married to her Prince Charming on Saturday....
I was sad I couldn't go, but I was there in heart.
Sunday - Solo Easter 5k. Louis went with me for half & I finished the rest out myself in the rain, killing the last half...the first negative split of any kind I've had in awhile.
Total Milage: 22.3
This week in workouts....
Monday - Barre & maybe a short run at lunch (3 miles?)
Tuesday - Barre for lunch & Tabata - after a short break up with tabata, I felt it was time to go back. I loved how strong I felt when I was doing this regularly.
Wednesday - 6-8 miles at the gym, 1 mile with Louis
Thursday - Barre & 3.1 miles with the kiddos to make up their "bunny hop" race from a few weeks ago
Friday - Barre
Saturday - Barre & 6-8 miles
Sunday - Breaking Down the Barre - a class to deepen practice and understand the foundations of the class - can't wait!
Total Miles: 19 - 23
I have some other interesting goals I'll write more about this week.
My grad school class is on the downhill slide (thank the baby Jesus) & my current furniture piece is almost ready to go! I spent most of last evening distressing it and it is looking great compared to the condition I found it in.
That's my story! What's yours?
How was your Easter holiday?
