Friends, I got to run outside for the first time in five weeks today and I am so happy about it! 21.45 miles this week with one strength workout and a back owie. And oh yes I bought another pair of shoes, oh yes I did.
A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads. This was the last "calm" week before a big project that I am working on takes off. For the next few months I am making no pretense of being able to cook dinner on weeknights...if it happens it happens and the rest will be meal prep and Daddy Dinner Duty.

This week's big musing was about bullet journals. I've hear a lot about them but I've never quite understood what they are. Any time I try to read up I just see links to fancy notebooks and pencils, which doesn't sound like my kind of hobby. But this post from Modern Mrs. Darcy kind of cleared it up for me. She wrote that she's now including her family's dinners in her journal "this may seem like such a silly thing to track...it's a log I never imagined I'd want or need".
So...have I been keeping a bullet journal via the blog all this time without even knowing about it? Huh.
A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads. Last Sunday I got my act together and did a bunch of meal prep that I benefited from this week. This Sunday...oops my meal planning mojo has gone AWOL so I have no clue what to eat. Likewise this week's TV situation is a wax and books are a wane.
Of all the things that I expected to tell you this week, the fact that I ran 31.25 miles was not one of them! Wait, let me say that again, the fact that I did 3 strength workouts, assorted yoga, and ran 31.25 outside miles was delightfully unexpected.
Going into the last week of the year, I was already at record annual mileage, so I made the most of it and "sandbagged" with lower volume runs and an extra rest day. 22 miles this week and hey-o I'm still hitting the weights.
