Hello there! Life has been busy and I had a luxurious long weekend (burning off some extra vacation days at the J-O-B) but I am here to share my weekly mileage with you once again! Last week was another great week of running. Let’s recap!
Monday AM- 10.3 peaceful early miles. It always feels good to get it in on a Monday before the busy work day. Lately early Monday runs have felt more like therapy than anything else. Pretty relaxed pace after a weekend of back to back long running. Ultra training for this race has been going well.
Monday PM- 2.32 mile warm up before the gym, in the heat at a 7:50 pace.
Tuesday AM- 10.2 miles with the Irving Running Club. I get up pretty dang early on Tuesdays and Thursdays to meet the group. Definitely was wiping the sleep out of my eyes for half of this run.
Tuesday PM- 4.31 miles after work. This was as the sun was going down which was quite nice. Last week we had lots of triple digits so anything below that feels actually really nice. I’ll take what I can get at this point.
Wednesday AM- 11.35 miles, nice little mid week mileage. There may or may not have been a pit stop during this run for some iced coffee.
Wednesday PM- 4.11 trail miles with the Dallas Dirt Runners. Love getting some relaxed trail miles in.
Thursday AM- 10.2 IRC miles. We had a good little turnout that morning with everyone beating the heat.
Thursday PM- 3.02 mile warm up before the gym. I needed a little perk up before I taught my class.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday- 17.37 miles…hills and humidity. Definitely a good run though.
Sunday- Back out on the trails with my trail group. 12.02 miles out at Knob Hills. Love getting off the beaten path.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend – did anyone else have a long weekend or staycation? Hows your training going?

I’m using Tuesday mornings as my long run days for my full-marathon. I’m probably going to have start as early as 3:45 later in my training, but I use my weekends to run 5ks and work on my speed (I’m not a speedy runner, so I’m trying to keep what speed I have) and relax with my fiance. Also, after I get my run done on Tuesday, I don’t really care how much is left in the week because my long run is done!
Keep it up!! You’re doing great 😊
Thanks, lady! You’re an inspiration. I love reading about how you’re able to push your body!
My marathon training is going pretty well. I’ve increased my mileage slowly and although it’s nowhere near your level, I’m still pretty happy with it. hahah. I do enjoy rest days a lot more now. LOL
Great work!! It will definitely pay off soon! Keep at it!
I actually surprised myself by staying on plan while in Vegas!! I would’ve been sooooo easy to sleep in instead of run!!
HAHA oh for sure! I did the RnR full marathon down there a couple of years ago and I tell you what that was some crazy race!! Crazy but fun, party – run – sleep – repeat! LOL!!
Shoot. I think that I’m going to take a day off next week and go to the beach. It has to be during the week, because I hate going to the beach on weekends – too crowded and sometimes too riff raff.
LOL…riff raff is no bueno! Beach sounds lovely!! Cheers
Glad you got to enjoy an extra long weekend. I had a wonderful trail hike today, but man, lot’s of incline hilly areas.
Definitely good for ya! Love the trails!!
