I don’t know about you but my Monday is getting off to a LIT start due to my coffee which is absolutely on point. Let’s recap last week’s miles, shall we? I was able to get in just over 85 miles last week!! Woohoo. Let’s see how things went down!!
Creepy night runner pic.
Monday AM- 8.12 miles to kick off the work week. Last week it was a tad on the cooler side, as mother nature gave us a break for a couple of days from the triple digit temps. So that was nice.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Getting in my double digit miles for the day.
Tuesday AM- 8.22 miles with a bunch of hill repeats thrown in. I am getting my hill work in for this race. It is coming up rather quickly!! Cannot wait. I need a race-cation like no other.
Tuesday PM- 2.35 miles cooling down from the busy day. The humidity of course was super intense.
Wednesday- 8.33 miles with my breakfast run club. Knocking it out before some folks even have their coffee.
Thursday- 7.23 miles after going to a “wine walk” the night before. Yep half asleep but was able to get it done.
Friday- 21.13 miles practicing my long NIGHT running!! It felt weird to do this run after a super long and super BUSY week. But it was great training. This was at my friend’s run party where we ran in circles around her property all weekend. It was a come and go event too, which was cool. So I enjoyed some late night miles which felt good. It was still 90 something degrees though even late night.
Saturday- 16.3 hot afternoon miles on my friend’s property again. This run felt pretty good and the legs felt decent even after 21 miles the night before. Love getting the heat training in.
Sunday- 10.36 miles back at the ranch at 8 am. This run probably felt the hardest after back to back long run days. Good training though for Brazos Bend 100. I actually think I suffered from a touch of heat exhaustion on this day because I felt super weak at the end of this one. But I kind of like going through stuff like that so I can learn my body a little bit better. Anyway, got it in and the HIGHEST mileage weekly I’ve done in a little while.
So it was a successful weekend of back to back long running and the host of the crazy runner party gave us some take home gifts. I did not know they even made shampoo for ultra runners. Pretty cool! Ha.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Tell me something awesome about today!
My coffee is pretty awesome, hello extra shot of espresso.
