Welcome to another week of workout Wednesdays!  I hope some of you are inspired to link up this week!

Here is what I have been up to the past week:
Wednesday September 24: 10 mile bike
Thursday: 3 mile run
Friday: 10 mile run
Saturday: 2.5 mile run
Sunday: arm/ab workout
Monday: 6 mile run
Tuesday: none

Weekly total running miles: 21.5
Weekly total workout miles - 31. 5
Monthly total running miles: 83.2
Monthly total workout miles - 93.2
Weekly total workouts:6
Monthly total workouts - 23

I was so close to getting to 100 miles this month, but I just didn't push hard enough over all.  I do want to make sure I'm also focusing on cross training as well, so I don't get injured.  I did take more rest days than I wanted to, so I'm hoping to keep it to one a week max next month.

What have you been working on this month?  What are your goals for October?  Come link up and share!

Weekend Update

Skip was off on Saturday and we were determined to make the most of it.  That combined with some amazing 80* weather made it the perfect day for some outside activities.

Skip and Emmy have hone fishing together a few times, and Charlie wanted to get in on the fun.  So all four of us packed up and headed to a small pond to try and catch some fish.

Both girls did really well and despite the fact that we only caught one fish, everyone had a great time!

We went home for lunch and naps and then headed back out to a little pumpkin patch I had seen earlier.  There was a petting zoo, giant blow up slide, and plenty of fall fun.

It was a great day with our little family,

We topped off the weekend with some church and out to lunch before Skip had to go to work.  The girls sat together on one side of the booth for the first time, so Skip and I actually got to sit next to each other!  It was so nice.

The girls and I then spent the afternoon watching football and painting the pumpkins we'd gotten the day before.  It was such a nice, relaxing weekend for us all!

A Little Break

The past few weeks have been a little tough around here.  We're all adjusting to Emmy being back at school.  She is struggling with the fact that kindergarten is harder and different than preschool.  She is also seeing Skip a lot less than in the summer.  Charlie is missing her big sister during the day.  Skip has been working a lot, and strange hours, and missing his girls.  I have been alone with them a lot, struggling with the early wake-ups, making sure Emmy is doing homework and has everything she needs every day.  I've been working on a little homeschooling with Charlie, and trying to get things done around the house while carving out a little time for things I like to and want to get done.  It's been tough.

So Friday when Skip was off, he wonderfully gave me a little break.  He let me sleep in until 7:15 and took Charlie with him to drop Emmy off at school so I could get ready in peace.  When they got home he took Charlie to run some errands and I headed out to a local trail I like to run at.  I was able to run 10 miles?! Two hours of alone time, just me and the fresh air.  It was amazing.  I came home and we had lunch and relaxed a bit before he picked Emmy up.

We all hung out together for a bit and then I got to go shopping at Kohls alone.  It was amazing.  I took my time and got some things we needed.  I even grabbed a few things for Christmas already!  When I came home Skip had made dinner for everyone, and then gave the girls baths.

Once the girls were down for the night, Skip and I just relaxed on the couch and caught up on our DVR.  It was a fabulous day and one I definitely needed.  It left me recharged to take on the weekend and now this week.  Sometimes all you need is a little break.

I had been hoping to have another 100 mileage month, but it just isn't going to happen.  I am pleased I'm getting in workouts even when I can't run, or I can't run as far as I'd like.  I'm still going to try and see how many miles I can do though.

How are you all doing this month?

Time with my littlest...

We are all still trying to get back into the routine of school this year, the early morning wake-up, homework, and making sure we have everything together.  We are also missing Emmy the hours she's at school, Charlie especially.  But it is nice to be able to enjoy some one on one time with my youngest in this last year before she starts school full time.

The other morning was cool, but beautiful and Charlie and I spent a ton of time outside.  We played hide-and-seek, tag, racing, and rode bikes and scooters.  It was wonderful to get some fresh air and really just focus on my girl.

I do cherish all this time with my littlest!
