TGIF! If your schedule has been anything like mine lately, its been jam packed, crazy, and all around nuts. Lately, I’ve felt like I’m on the go more than I’ve been able to sit still. On Wednesday, I left for work at 6:15 a.m., and since we had a late afternoon graduation ceremony didn’t get home until 9:00 p.m….it was a long day!
I haven’t done a random Friday Five in awhile, but with so much going on right now, I thought this week would be perfect for one.
1. We’re finally in the home stretch of the school year!
The end of this never ending school year is finally in sight! Graduation was Wednesday evening, and today is the last day of underclassmen final exams. We have three half days and a quarter day left of school, and then it’ll finally be summer break. I never want to be in school til June 25th again!
2. We’ll be starting the packing process this weekend.
We’re still on track to close on our townhouse on July 2nd. I’ve been collecting boxes at work for the past couple of weeks, and our plan this weekend is to start cleaning out some closets and to start packing some boxes.
3. The DC summer heat and humidity arrived early this year.
For much of the week, we were in the midst of an early summer heat wave in DC. In fact, on Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that DC was the hottest location in the country that day.
4. The heat and humidity’s early arrival has resulted in some very sweaty runs.
I refuse to let the heat and humidity stop me though. I’ve been pushing through, with the mindset of “no excuses.”
5. I have a new personal best for running: I’ve increased my average monthly pace.
RunKeeper sent me an e-mail last night congratulating me for my achievement. What an incredible e-mail to have received, especially since running in the heat and humidity hasn’t been the easiest thing.
QOTD: What has the weather been like in your neck of the woods? What is something you’re looking forward to doing this weekend? Any recent fitness milestones?
As always, thank you to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting the weekly Friday Five Link Up. Be sure to check out their posts as well!
