Lot of Running

It's been another crazy couple of weeks.  We had another long trip; lots of hours in the van, fun times with cousins and hanging on the beach.  We listened to a good audio book during our long ride.  It's called Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman.  I got it from the library and all 3 of my boys enjoyed the story.

I was able to get 20 miles of running in during the week, almost all of them on hills.  My glutes got worked last week.

I wasn't able to do kettlebell, and now I feel behind.  It will be hard to keep it up this summer, but I will try.  My aim right now is for twice a week, plus one more day of push-ups and pull-ups.  I'm going to ramp up my running.  I've lost interest in the 10k plan, so now I'm just going to run.  I'm going to aim for 23-25 miles per week.  I was going to do 5 miles 5 times a week, but I may do two days with 4 miles, plus kettlebell.  I don't know.  Right now, I'm planning on starting a summer project.  I'm going to strip the wallpaper (the layers and layers of wallpaper) off my plaster walls in my bedroom, then paint (after they get patched and sanded!).  All of that work will make it hard to keep up kettlebell. I don't want to lose my strength that I've work so hard to gain, so I will just have to try and make it happen.
