I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’m here to recap some running from last week! I was able to get in just over 83 miles total and I have survived to talk about it. Ha!! I should be good and ready for some ultras I have on the docket coming soon! Anyway, let’s review and see how it all went down.
Pic above was from this morning – it was 70 something degrees breezy with loads of humidity – felt like I was running in Florida! Hello springtimey weather. Stay around a bit longer.
Monday AM- Y’all, I am getting back into the Monday morning running groove. After doing a bulk of my long runs on the weekends, typically Mondays are tough for me. But it is slowly getting better. I was able to get 8.12 miles in by the lake last week. I have been loving my solo lake runs lately.
Monday PM- Quick strides before the gym to hit double digits for the day. 2.22 miles around the block done.
Tuesday AM- 10.23 miles with the weekday run club. Last week the weather was off and on, literally chilly one day and warm the next. I did some miles with them then got in the last little bit on my own.
Tuesday PM- 3.22 miles cooling down after teaching a class at the gym. I have found a new route right by the gym too which I love. Leave the gym, go for a quick run, hop in the car and head home. Boom.
Wednesday AM- 7.4 miles on Valentine’s Day morning! It was actually a beautiful day that day and lots of folks were out and about. Loving it.
Wednesday PM- 8.02 miles in the evening. I actually went to a WRRC social run that night, which was fun because there were a lot of single runners there too. Girls and guys. Actually, I ended up being the only chick that stayed for dinner. There were like 6 guys at the table, and then me. Haha. So I had lots of run dates on V-day!!! Fun.
Thursday AM- 7.27 miles back with my breakfast club run posse. Just on cruise control.
Thursday PM- 4.12 miles cool down after the gym. I have been enjoying running in darkness lately.
Friday- Run STREAK WEEK! 10.12 miles. How can you not run – when your view looks like this?
Saturday- 15.12 miles with WRRC. Miles and mimosas is without a doubt my favorite way to start the weekend.
Sunday- 5.35 miles on road, then 5.15 miles on the trails with good friends. For a total of 10.5 miles on Sunday. I love me some Sunday trail runs. My body loves it too especially after running on the roads during the week. Nice way to wind down the weekend.
Post run brew – Meta Modern IPA. Honestly I am not a huge cerveza fan (mostly stick to ciders and my vino) but for some reason I am warming up to IPAs. I am loving exploring all of the local ones lately.
And there you have it!
How was your week last week? What are you looking forward to this week and/or upcoming weekend?
Pacing the Cowtown 50k on Sunday, and getting some NEW ROAD SHOES this week! Holla holla.
