Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! Hope your day is going fantastic so far. I am here to recap a wild week of running last week. Yet another great week in the ultra training world. My 100k race will be here before you know it. Buckle up and get ready for the recap!

Monday AM- 12.16 miles. I had the day off from work last Monday so I took full advantage and got all of my miles in. The sun was shining bright at 10 a.m. but it felt good to sleep in a bit and then get some heat training in.

Monday PM- 2.21 miles after I had to teach a class real quick at the gym.

Tuesday AM- 10.05 miles with the run club. It’s never real easy to get up so early after a long weekend staycation but I got it done.

Tuesday PM- 4.11 mile sunset run. It was crazy humid out but kinda nice and breezy.

Wednesday- 10.12 mile solo miles just enjoying the morning before the heatwave. It rained off and on last week so the humidity mixed with the heat was a real killer. So really the earlier the better was the way to go.

Thursday- 11.23 miles with IRC. I kinda broke off from the group and did the back half of this run on my own. Kinda was feeling tired and anti social. LOL. Just got it done and knocked it out.

Friday- Work was crazy stressful last week, with a conference and hitting all kinds of deadlines I was working on. So this was a therapy run kind of day. 8.31 early miles done before Friday mayhem.

Saturday AM- 18.02 miles SO SUPER EARLY but I so super kind of love it. It’s so quiet and peaceful and then by the time you’re awake the run is like halfway done. Love my early Saturday mornings. Then I can go home and make myself protein pancakes and take a nice long nap.

Saturday PM- 16.02 trail miles with the Dallas Dirt Runners at their vampire sunset/night run. I brought a disco ball because it was basically like one big trail party.

Love this crazy crew. We did a bunch of loops on the trail, had great convo and adult beverages after.

Sunday- I was SO DANG CLOSE to hitting 100 for the week so you know your girl had to get in just 1 more 8 mile run for good measure. 8.12 miles done. Oh heck yes. It feels so good to hit that 100 mile mark and live to tell the story. Fun fun.

And then we celebrated mama’s birthday with prickly pear margaritas! Cheers.

And there you have it! Crazy big mileage week for me.

How was your weekend? Anyone else training for an ultra? Or a marathon? Did you do anything else fun?

  1. Have I mentioned that you’re insane? LOL. I would never have run an extra 8 miles just to make 100. Well, maybe not never. I’m already starting to run 40+ miles a week and I never thought that was possible. haha Have a great week!

  2. That’s some crazy mileage right there!! Congrats!! I had a ‘chill’ weekend!! My long run was interrupted by storms, but I still managed some of it!! Happy Monday!!


  3. Nice! Well done on the 100 in a week. It’s a big ask.
    I’m sure the 100k will get done easy enough.
    I did a 43 miler on Saturday. Walking like the wounded on Sunday lol
    Aiming to get my first 100+miler out the way in October, so just training for that.
    Enjoy the journey

  4. Your mileage and daily training is super inspiring! A friend and I tackled the Great Range Traverse in the Adirondacks this weekend for ultra training… A fraction of the distance but the gain was real!
