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 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.
