Weekly Wrap: Catching Up

Happy Sunday!

I feel like it’s been a while since I joined in on the Weekly Wrap link-up! Thanks as always to Holly & Tricia for hosting the link-up.

So let’s get caught up, shall we? This time last week I was just kicking off 4 whirlwind days in NYC with the family. And I do mean whirlwind! We got in a lot of sightseeing and eating πŸ˜‰ We even scored half price tickets to the Broadway show, School of Rock, which I highly recommend especially if you have kids – my boys loved it!

It was great family time and a much-needed break for all! The only downside of time away is the chaos that awaits when you return! Thankfully the weekend was close at hand, making re-entry a little easier.

And, since Run to Remember training is officially underway, I did what I could to get some miles in this week as well.

Monday — Cross-training in the form of walking 5+ miles around NYC.

Tuesday — Storm Stella got in the way of my plan to get a run through the city so I headed to the hotel gym, with my mini coach in tow πŸ˜‰ 3Β miles done.

Wednesday — More cross-training across the city.

Thursday — The plan called for 1.5-mile intervals, but honestly, my legs were toast and I knew there was just no way speed work of any kind was happening. I opted for 4 easy miles.

Friday — Rest!

Saturday — A trip to the chiro and a 5-mile run.

Sunday — My son’s hockey playoffs dominated the day, but I did make time for the exercises my chiro wants me to do to help keep my hip happy.

This week, work/family schedules will be pretty chaotic, but it’s time to step up the miles for RtR so I’m going to have to get creative to fit it all in!

How was your week?



  1. I’m hoping for my vacation to give me some much needed rest! My family is home and I’m staying with my parents. Fingers crossed for lots of quiet time!

  2. It looked like you saw ALL the sights in NYC! They had all the snow cleared for us today. πŸ™‚ While our weekend getaway was fun, I too am wondering how to take care of all the weekend chores that didn’t get done!

    • We definitely covered a lot of ground and the boys are already talking about our next trip! I’m going to need to rest up before we go again! LOL!

  3. School of Rock…if the Broadway show is a fraction as good as the movies, I bet it was awesome! We finally bought the DVD (several years ago) because we’d rented it so many times…we still watch it when all the “kids” are home.

  4. Sounds like a fun and busy trip to NY. I haven’t been there or really anywhere east of the Mississippi yet. Maybe someday!

  5. Let me know the next time you are in NYC. It would be great to meet up!

    I love that you were still able to get in some exercise while away from home. NYC is definitely a great city for walking – you get in your steps for the day and get to see landmarks too πŸ™‚

  6. I always say I need a vacation after coming home from a vacation. Vacations never seem to be relaxing because you area always so busy doing things.

  9. You sound like me ….we stay so active on vacations that I always feel like I need a vacation to recover from my vacation! πŸ™‚

    Glad you guys had a great trip though and enjoyed some quality family time.

    I’ll have to check out that musical …we love musicals and always try to see something new when we make a trip to NYC.

  10. Vacations are meant to pack as much in as you can, or at least that’s how all of mine end up and well then I can totally relate to the picture about needing a vacation from the vacation!
    Ha, you trip to NYC looks fabulous and so much fun!
    One day I’m going to get there, one day!

  11. Sounds like an amazing family trip as there was so much fun going on, even though it was so quick. I’m amazed that you managed to sneak in some exercises still. Good job! Hope you’ve been having a great week so far.
