Weekly Roundup: April 21st

What a week!  It started with the Boston Marathon and the horror and ended with some great news Friday night when the second suspect was apprehended.  As you know from our various posts earlier this week, I had a short visit to MA and spectated the marathon with my Mom in Wellesley.  Christine headed back to the pool as she continues her quest to get back into swimming.  It was a good break for her following her PR last weekend at the Dismal Swamp Stomp.  We both had really nice workouts yesterday, probably because the whole Boston situation was resolved.  Christine had a good Friday night lounging with her dog, Paddy, who also doubles as a pillow...

How did your workouts go this week?  Did you try anything new?


  1. Nothing new for me this week. Just A LOT of running :)

  2. Great week ladies! We did some yardwork this week too. Nothing new, just worked out harder this week, raised some weight on the machines in the gym. I'm sore!

    1. Good job raising your weight Heather. I am also sore from trying a new workout DVD yesterday!

  3. Way to get in that swimming ladies - I'm ready for summer here!

    1. Christine is the swimmer, but I am ready to as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer. The outdoor pool is still very cold!

  4. Great week...my week started slow but I squeezed in allot this weekend:)

    1. Weekends are good for catching up what we miss doing during the week!

  5. Actually I did try something new this week... Saturday I have my first trail run race (did not know it was a trail run until I got to the start area though lol). Probably won't do another one any time soon though haha :) It really takes a toll on the ankles!

    1. Congrats for trying something new Lauren! I would be afraid of a trail run because of the ankle issue.
