It was a great week!  Hope your's was awesome too!

Wednesday - 20 minutes - Done 2.04 miles with 9:49 pace
Thursday - 40 minutes - Done 4.15 miles with 9:37 pace
 Friday - Rest and Core - Rested done but no core, did go to an awesome CAbi party!  Love the clothes and can not wait for mine to arrive!
Saturday - 5k race with kids, and 8 miles on Saturday or Sunday - Done 7 miles in 1:09 with 9:58 pace.  Got invited to run with two awesome women and had a great run. Got our butts out of bed and met at 7am to conquer a hilly path with some beautiful views.  So thankful the rain held off for our run and blessed to have such wonderful company!

5K with kids - Bill Roney Memorial 5K

Finished my run with the ladies and headed home to some scrambled eggs and drank 2 Nespresso pods of coffee while I got everyone's race apparel and Hanson's Yellow Team shirts ready!  Once we all ate and were ready, we headed out to Fitzgerald Elementary in Utica.  Wow, such a nice, organized race.  We were running pretty late, but that did not seem to effect us much at all. Got the bibs, timing chips and 4 size Medium shirts, lol. Since we were late, that is all they had left - a bit too big for me, a bit too small for hubby (although I do need to have him try one as they do look large and are nice quality Brooks shirts).  

We got ourselves ready and Hubby headed to the start of the runners while the kids and I lingered in the back.  No need to have anyone weave around us, although, I must say my kids did some weaving themselves.  We were off!  One thing I must say is it was very hard to hear at this race, hard to hear the starting announcements and hard to hear the raffle drawing - but no biggie!

We ran and then took some walk breaks throughout the race and the kids did awesome!  For me, it was a nice chance to stretch my muscles after the hills this am and at this pace, a walk in the park, lol. We rounded the last corner and Daddy was waiting for us, Pea and I took off (she is very competitive lol and saves up her speed for the end of the races) towards the finish line and Daddy ran Monkey to the line.  It was so sweet that Hansons gave all the 5K kids finisher medals!  You can see one of ours in the picture below with the nice shirts we got!  If anyone wants a medium from this race, just let me know - 3 are up for grabs!

They ROCKED Roney for a 5K and their ages!
Pea 37:28.3 (12:07 pace)
Me with Pea ;) 37:28.8

Monkey 37.32.4 
Hubby PRd Bigtime for just starting running!  26:43.7!  (8:37 pace)

I hardly slept last night and had to wake up at 6 to get my miles in this am, so I tried to nap this afternoon. It really didn't seem to work so I decided to get up and make myself some pasta.

1 Bag Organic, Whole Wheat Pasta - cook according to package
1 Organic Onion
Box of Organic Baby Bella Mushrooms
1 Tbsp Butter 
1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Then, when it is almost finished, deglaze the pan a bit with some good white wine and then add to drained pasta, add some extra EVOO and serve!

Sooo yummy! Pour yourself some of that good, white wine you used and enjoy!

Plan for Week #4 - You will notice I'm switching back to miles to align my training with the TnT weekend schedule I got for the Bayshore and my full schedule for Chicago.
Sunday - 2 miles & personal trainer appt.
Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 5 miles
Wednesday - 2 miles
Thursday - 4 miles
Friday - rest
Saturday - 8 miles

Notice I gave up on planning the core workouts, lol :)

How was your weekend?
