Weekly Wrap – Sprinting through days


This time of year is always so hectic at our house as we inch our way closer to summer – and I’m sure I’m not alone on this. I really thought this image perfectly captured how I’ve been feeling. And, while it’s been crazy busy, it’s also been a lot of fun!

On Thursday, we enjoyed a great graduation ceremony and celebration for my oldest son, followed by my youngest son’s 4th grade concert on Friday (both boys have banned me from sharing photos). Then it was on to our final lacrosse games of the season.

Our town hosts a big tournament every year, and round-robin games kicked off Friday evening and went on all weekend. My husband J was coaching , both boys were playing, and J and I were also on the organizing committee so you can imagine what the weekend was like! Way too much take out has been consumed and everyone is exhausted, but it was great family time and I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂 Though I must admit I’m looking forward to having some lazy Sundays ahead…

On the workout front, I managed to keep focused on my new training plan, with only a minor adjustment or two:

Monday:   Despite a migraine, I did manage to get a short run in – and a chance to try my new kicks from Ampla Sports!

Ampla Fitsnap
Tuesday: Unplanned rest day
Wednesday: Strength work: Core & Glutes
Thursday:  Another 3 miles
Friday:  Cross-training on the Arc Trainer
Saturday:  5 miles more before spending hours on my feet volunteering and cheering at the lax tournament
Sunday:  Rest day – I had though about squeezing in a few miles this morning, but my legs quickly let me know that would not be a good choice!

I’m linking up again with Holly & Tricia for the #WeeklyWrap — big thanks to them for hosting!




  1. Nice week of training! Funny that your boys won’t let you share their pics on the blog. Mine have no clue when I share!

  2. The school we live near just wrapped up this week, but the public schools still have a week and a half to go. I miss those lacrosse weekends! I had a lazy Sunday today, but I forgot so many things on my first trip to the grocery store I had to go back.

  3. You had a very busy weekend ! It is crazy here too, as always in June. Our kids are officially out of school end of June, but have no more classes, just big exams coming up. Along with art exhibits, sports events, etc. So it will be crazy here for another couple weeks!

  4. I often wonder how blogger children feel about their parents sharing so much of their lives on the blog. You are probably better off for not sharing their pics! You don’t need them upset with you..haha

    I hope you have a fabulous summer!

  5. Great week and congrats to your sons! They are wise to not want pics shared. I’ve had pics of my kids stolen and used on very unsavory sites and it’s an ordeal to get them taken down.
    I feel the same way about summer. These days are so precious, yet I find myself wishing the drivers ed class taxi duties would be over. Ha!

    • Marcia I remember you mentioning your kids’ pics being stolen – so scary!

      Ah the mom taxi service rolls on here. At least you know you’re getting close to retiring your hack license 😉

  6. I actually love that you do not share your boys photos. I think it is important to protect children and frequent sharing on social media seems to be commonplace. Nice week of training

  7. I know your boys are ready for summer! The lax tournament sounds exhausting but fun. June always goes so quickly to me as well. I really like the color of those shoes. Thanks for linking with us Michelle!

  8. Sounds like a busy weekend! The last week(s) of school were very busy for me too. We are out now and now it is time for camps. Enjoy your lazy Sundays to come!

  9. You’ve had a busy week! That tournament sounds like a lot of fun for the whole family! I enjoy relaxing on Sunday’s too. Hope you’ll get a chance to do so soon.

  10. Yes the days are flying by! June is half gone! Your hectic weekend does sound fun though. It’s hard to feed a lot of people healthy things on the run too. Good job on getting in your workouts this week too! Thanks Michelle for linking up with us. I hope you got some rest this weekend 🙂
