Here's a little recap:
Tuesday night I managed to get out to the Houston Trail to meet my Goofy group for a nice 4km run. I decided to squeeze it in before barre class and ended up being a bit short on time. Oops. My easy 4km turned into how-fast-can-I-get-this-done-so-I'm-not-late-for-barre-class.
Wednesday and Thursday I did both of my runs on the treadmill. Nothing exciting but I sure enjoyed listening to some of the new tunes I put on my iPod. Music can make such a difference! Managed to do my Mojo Jar challenge of sprinting the last 3 mins for both of these runs. Yay!
Saturday I was at the cabin and did my 7km on the lake road with my sister. Such a beautiful morning but I sure felt bad when a few kms into the run she confessed she was wearing running shoes that were 1.5 sizes too small! (She had forgotten hers at home and was wearing whatever she could find at the cabin...) We had such a nice run though and even stopped for some geeky photo ops along the way...

Beyond running I made it to barre class once this week (on Tuesday) and my usual pilates class on Wednesday. Barre is turning out to be so much fun. Tuesday night has a different teacher than I have had before and she totally kicked our butts. It's only been a few weeks but I can tell that these classes are working my butt and hips in a really great way. It's just what I need for my running I think. And pilates was good too. My original teacher from a few years ago was subbing for our regular teacher and it was great to visit afterwards and catch up. I am so so weak but I am really enjoying the pilates too. It feels good to be back doing some of the things I used to before the kids.
In other things...
As mentioned, we headed off to the cabin for the weekend. We went with my sister and her husband and all the kids stayed home with Nana and Papa. We were heading up for a cousin's wedding and also to take care of the boat and get it put away for the winter. It was a real treat to go kidless and we had a fun time at the wedding.
It was super neat and since my cousin (the groom) is a musician, had kind of a rock and roll sort of theme. There were skulls and cross bones everywhere and he even wrote and recorded the music that the bride walked down the aisle to. Very cool.

Anyhow, that's about all for now...
