Happy Monday! I am back to doing my weekly running reports. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Here is a quick recap of last week’s miles – which came out to 83.3 miles of running! I have a couple of ultras on the horizon so we are gearing up for some fun. Let’s see how it all went down.
Monday- As most of you know last week was the BIG Dallas to Ft. Worth fun run that I do every year! 33.3 miles. Legs actually held up better than I thought they would. If you missed it you can catch the recap here. I love running crazy long with people as crazy as I am.
Tuesday- 3.02 miles in the evening after teaching a spin class. The next day was definitely recovery just to shake the legs out. I really do feel better after runs like that if I can get the legs going and the blood flowing. Even if the run is short, for me it is better than sitting on my couch eating bon bons. (What are bon bons really by the way? Has anyone had one? Do tell me what they are all about.)
Wednesday- 4.22 miles in the cold rain in the evening. I’ve found a great route over by work that I like to run so this worked out well. I am mostly a morning runner you know but it is good sometimes to switch it up.
Thursday- Another COLD, rainy morning but 6.32 miles done. Texas weather is being bipolar again (the high is 70 something degrees today, YAY springtime temps) but yeah I believe that morning it was 30 something. Ice cold rain calls for hot coffee.
Friday- Run streak week! 6.31 miles on the lake. Friday runs are always pretty relaxed before the long run on Saturday. This is typically when I would do a rest day but it has been fun maintaining my sanity and running all week long.
Saturday- 20.02 miles with the run club! I did get a massage on Friday night so that helped revive the legs a bit. But I need to start incorporating some back to back long runs for ultra training. Anyway, mimosas and breakfast tacos were had immediately after.
Sunday- I ended up having a low key Saturday which made room for some Sunday funday miles! 10.13 miles running a new route with my Sunday morning run crew.
Oh, and I tried a new chicken place! Cowboy Chicken. Fitting for Texas, right?
This place was pretty good last minute comfort food type of meal. I hear they also do rotisserie chicken tortilla soup and enchiladas so I have to go back for that.
And there you have it!
How has your running going? Tell me something fun about your weekend!
We celebrated the Cowboys winning on Saturday. Sometimes I like to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Wow! You are so inspiring! I really enjoyed reading about your runs and seeing the pics. That is quite a training schedule. I admire people who train all year round. I am definitely a rookie when it comes to running, but I would like to train for an event this upcoming June. Keep up the great work!
Fabulous!! Happy running to you and thanks for visiting!!
Happy running to you too! Have a great week!
Running is going great. Still no goals and still no plans. I’m good with that.
Bon Bons are little chocolate covered ice cream snacks about the size of a typical piece of boxed chocolate candy.
You are killing it, as usual. I want to see those breakfast tacos! 🙂
I think those are the Americanized bon bons though…with the ice cream in them…
A bonbon is a sweet or small confection, especially a small bun coated in chocolate. The word originated from the French language, where the first reports of bonbons come from the 17th century, when they were made at the French royal court.
The name bonbon arose from the reduplication of the word bon, meaning ‘good’ in French.
Definition of bonbon
