Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! It is a rainy…COLD…(yes, cold for real we went from 80s to 40s in a matter of hours- CRAY) but I am here to share last week’s running with you! I was fortunate to get in a total of 86.1 miles last week. So, hooray for that! Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 5.22 miles before a busy workday. It felt good to get up early and get it in. I never regret that.
Monday PM- 2.02 miles to cool down after teaching class at gym. I decided not to really taper for the Orion Ultra last week, so I still got some double days in just made the double day runs a tad shorter. So that seemed to work out well.
Tuesday AM- 8.33 miles with the early run club. Some of them had a track workout on the agenda so I warmed up with a few miles on the track (threw strides in) then continued on with my usual route.
Tuesday PM- 2.22 miles after the gym splashing through puddles. This was not really a great run simply because I have a hard time running in this particular neighborhood in the dark. The gym that I teach at on this side of town is a tad sketchy and not only that there are SCARY dogs that like to run out in the middle of the street and chase you. So, that’s great.
Wednesday- 8.03 miles by the lake enjoying the view. Temps were quite lovely that morning although we had some rain coming it so it was quite humid but got the job done.
Thursday- 10.04 miles and the LAST RUN before my ultra!
Friday- REST DAY. Made the road trip down to the gulf coast for Saturday’s race. A runner friend made vegan spaghetti. YUM.

Saturday- ORION ULTRA! 50.01 miles done. Won second place female overall!! Recap to come.

Sunday- Drove back to Dallas. Glorious rest day felt like heaven. And yes my beach tan is everything.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Is it snowing where you are?
It was quite a shock to the body to go to the beach and come back to chilly temps I have to say. But I do have a killer tan.
