Hello and happy day before the holiday! I hope you have some fun 4th of July things on your agenda. I was able to get in 85 miles of running last week – which is a strong week of running for me! Ultra training is in full effect. I have signed up for a 100k race in the fall so keeping the training going and the body healthy and strong. Let’s recap!
Monday AM- 8.21 miles in the ‘hood. It was nice and somewhat cooler and breezy early in the morning. I am back to early running on Mondays and it feels so good to get some solo running in. Just rocking out to my jams and watching the sunrise.
Monday PM- 2.20 warm up miles before the gym during the hottest part of the day, 7:40 pace. It felt good to get a little sweat on after a long day at work.
Tuesday AM- 10.10 miles with the Irving Running Club. I always love running with my homegirl Julie. She enjoys running longer with me.
Tuesday PM- 3.05 miles, just shaking out the legs from the day. It was nice to pick up the pace and go a little faster.
Wednesday AM- 8.10 miles solo. I’ve been creating a pit stop in the middle of this run to run by 7-eleven for a quick icy shot of gatorade, HA. Oh thank heaven.
Wednesday PM- 4.10 trail miles with rocks and roots. Lots of lovely shade too.
Thursday AM- 11.03 miles with the run club crew. Ran a few miles with them then the rest on my own.
Thursday PM- 4.21 miles. Not much to say about this one aside from the fact that it was blazin’ hot. It feels good to enjoy summer running again though, my body is finally acclimating to it.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday AM- 5.21 miles before getting stuck in a rain storm with thunder and lightning. So we will just call this the ‘warm up run’ before the long run. HA.
Saturday AM- Finally the storm cleared and I was able to get some good miles in. 15.02 miles feeling good feeling great.
Sunday AM- 10.20 miles with Julie, nice and easy conversational pace. It was her birthday so of course we had to get in a run on Sunday funday runday.
Sunday PM- 4.16 afternoon miles, 8:28 pace doing some Dora the Explorer exploring after church. It was a humid but gorgeous day for sure.
I did also try some birthday cake Halo Top this weekend. It was kind of magical.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Are you going to see any fireworks tonight or tomorrow?
Pool time and fireworks tomorrow is definitely happening! I live right on the lake so you can see the fireworks from my pool, it is amazing.

Looks like an awesome running week. Maybe, I will watch the fireworks on TV.
It was some happy miles for sure!
That Halo Top is some good stuff!!!
Hoping for some beach time before fireworks tomorrow!!!
Birthday Cake Halo Top is my favorite so far! Mint Chip was pretty good but needed more chips.
Ah, good to know! I plan on trying them all!!
I will celebrate it tomorrow with a bbq and the baby pool hehe. I recently try the halo top birthday cake and it is soooo good!
mmmm bbq! On my way to your house then!! LOL
Maybe is a long drive but you are welcome! 🙂
🙂 🙂 totally kidding but thank you! I’ll have to find a race there one day!
ups I wish I can edit the comment. Question: Can you explain what is a 100k race? I’m curious. Do you ran that distance in days or weeks? Is amazing that you are running am/pm
100k is 62 miles total…as you know I’ve already done a 100 miler as well as 50 miles twice so I’m just checking off another fun distance off the ultra running list. Here is the race if you are to know what race I’m running 😉 http://www.ultraexpeditions.com/thepineywoodsultra
Oh wow that is awesome! good luck!!!
I really wish I could find Halo top here. I usually dislike “light” ice–cream, but everyone raves about HT.
Have a wonderful 4th of July!
hahaha I was totally kind of skeptical like you, I normally just eat frozen yogurt. But, it’s actually okay and it has added protein if you care about that!
A busy week! A co-worker told me about Halo Top ice cream on Friday, on the same day she said I needed to take a stress day away from work…and then today I went to the grocery store, bought Breyers ice cream for my grandson and got a coupon for Halo Top. All signs, it must be good! LOL!!!
Yes!! It’s incredible! So many flavors to try!!
No fireworks for me. They’re done in a tiny little beach town and shoving 20,000 people into space for 4000 is not my jam. Maybe some running though, Happy 4th!
Lol, u too Fallon!!
