Hello there! I am back from a long weekend. I didn’t even get to post my TGIFriday Faves (I know, who am I?) on Friday but I promise I’ll make it up to you this week. I have missed ya’ll!
That pic was from happy hour last week with my fellow Dallas Fitness Ambassadors. FUN group indeed!
So, let’s recap last week’s mileage, shall we? I got in 70.3 miles last week and have lived to tell you about it. Ha, that’s actually kind of a typical week for me lately, but I’m slowly building back up from my crazy 100 mile race not long ago. I’ve got a few races on tap for spring and summer (including a fun marathon girls trip to San Diego!) so should be a good time.
Monday lunch miles- 7.21 miles at an 8:40 pace for lunch. I love doing my lunch time runs because the gym that I work at is literally next door, so I can shower and go back to my 9-5. Which is also real close by. Hey! It’s a win win situation. Talk about convenience.
Monday PM- Quick 3.02 miles, 8:35 pace. Warming up before teaching a class after work.
Tuesday AM- 8.22 miles…catching up with some Irving Running Club peeps I hadn’t seen in a while. Good times. We love our shoe pics.
Tuesday PM- Warming up before teaching a class again. Kind of slow-ish easy 3.02 miles, 9:23 pace. Legs felt tired.
Wednesday AM- 10.11 miles around the lake in the morning, 8:58 pace. Ran with my neighbor for 7 and then finished the rest on my own.
Thursday AM- 7.12 Irving Running Club miles. I kind of love that we meet at the coffee shop because I run up until the shop opens. Caffeine and running, match made in heaven.
Thursday PM- 4.11 miles after work, took a half day to drive to Houston to see about family matters. I literally need some run time before being in the car with my mother for a long period of time. I love her, but you feel me.
Friday & Saturday- Road tripping and REST. I had some wonderful meals fueling for Sunday’s marathon though. Thank you FitFuel in Houston. Hello, grass fed sirloin with egg whites and sweet potatoes. Good gracious that was delicious.
Sunday- Paced the Cowtown Marathon. And then ran a mile and some change back to my car! HA. Anyway, most of you know I paced 4:30 last year at the Irving Marathon. I actually LOVE being a pacer! Helping others reach their goals through running is a wonderful thing. It’s my little way of giving back to the community.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? What did you do?
