Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday to you. I’m here to recap last week’s running with you. Lots of miles in the Texas sunshine – Just over 73 miles to be exact! Let’s get to it.
Monday AM- 7.12 lunchtime miles. Lots of running in the shade which was marvelous. Someone on my Strava even commented why I take nature photos with so many trees. HA. Now you know why. It’s pretty much summer in Texas and I love my shade.
Monday PM- 2.21 miles, 7:54 pace before teaching a class at the gym. Waking up the body and mind before I had to go be all peppy fitness instructor. Fun.
Tuesday- Early miles with the run club. 10.20 miles total. Cloudy and humid but a nice breeze. I was loving it.
Wednesday AM- 8.08 morning miles. It felt good to get up early on this day and get it in. Just rocking out to my jams. I honestly truly value the solo run time.
Wednesday PM- 4.10 miles, 95 degrees out, 8:15 pace. Not sure how but somehow I got it done. It was nice to get some happy miles in after work. Love my double run days.
Thursday AM- 10.30 run club miles. We meet every Tuesday and Thursday and then get coffee after. It is absolutely glorious. Plus you can’t go wrong with a nice sunrise.
Thursday PM- Another 4.10 miles before the gym. I wanted to get this one in before my rest day which I was really looking fwd to on Friday.
Friday- REST DAY. I checked my mailbox on this day and found out I received new kicks courtesy of Brooks Running! Love representing them and their awesome brand. I was so excited to slip these babies on for the weekend. Glycerin 15s for the win.
Saturday- 15.05 miles super early in the morning before yoga with my long run buddy Tracy. We are both thinking of signing up for the Dallas Marathon again in December and I have a couple of other races in mind. But running in my hometown is always fun. This was a good run and we found some awesome hills in our neighborhood.
Sunday AM- 11.11 miles at White Rock Lake. Everyone was out and about especially the dad bikers on Father’s Day.
Sunday PM- Decided since Strava is doing their ‘MyMile’ challenge and to put in my bid for some fly running kicks I would attempt a PR at the mile distance. And I did it! It was about 90 degrees out and I don’t know how but somehow I managed. It felt good to knock it out. Especially after running all of these ultras…it’s nice to know I still have some speed on my legs.
I also did a little grocery shopping…peaches just smell so fantastic this time of year.
And there you have it!
How was your week in running last week? How was your weekend?

Wow, great job getting those miles in- super inspiring especially in the summer heat! I wish I could get that motivated!
Thanks Jane! Happy running to you!!
Oh man, I know exactly what you mean about that Texas heat! I was there last summer & it was just a sweat fest. Also, your new blue shoes are so pretty! & nice job on all the running — very inspiring :))
I kind of feel like us Texas runners have the right to brag, I mean complain about the heat but I try not to 🙂 LOL you get acclimated to it after enough training!!
amazing mileage! i can’t imagine how humid it is there. it’s been pretty humid in NY the past week or so and i can def feel the toll it takes on my body trying to adjust to running in it.
Oh Shawna, you are a strong runner my sister, you’ve got this! Happy training and hope all is well.
Nice mile PR! I haven’t decided if I want to try for that by months end. Maybe.
I think even if you don’t PR they will enter you to win but hey it is a nice incentive!!
Wow!!! I don’t know how you do it!! All those miles and all the heat!!! You Rock!!
I started my marathon training this week and I’m supposed to log 15 miles for the week, so I’ve been slacking the last few weeks.
I love the new runners!! They are soooooo pretty!! I used to wear the Glycerins and Ghost, but I’m a Hoka convert these days!!
Aw Hokas are fun! Moon shoes!! Enjoy them! 🙂
I’ve been challenging myself this month to running a mile a day, so i did 10% of what you did. 😦 Not sure i could run that many miles without something failing. I alternate between shoes, Hoka one day, Brooks the next.
Hey, a mile a day is a fantastic goal! Small stepping stones equals big success. Keep rocking it!! You are doing great. 🙂
