Happy Monday to ya! We are recapping some miles from last week! So far training for upcoming ultra races is going great. I am super excited to be returning to Hachie 50 in May! It will be my 5th 50 miler so I’m hoping to do some fast running out there. Plus, I am really ready for some springtime running! Enough of this winter weather stuff. Actually it is supposed to be quite warm today (!) so that’s a little bit of a spring teaser before the cold comes back. Gotta love that Texas up and down weather.
Let’s see how it all went down!
Monday- 10.21 miles on my random day off/long weekend. I actually had some college friends in town but we had a bit of down time in the morning before we did some wine tasting. Wish I could do that every Monday. HA.
Tuesday AM– 5.11 miles with a few tempo miles thrown in there. This was a seriously GREAT run. Nice confidence builder that I still have some speed in me even after doing all of these ultras.
Tuesday PM- 3.03 miles warming up before teaching a class at the gym. Waking up the legs from the work day.
Wednesday AM- 10.25 miles with my breakfast run club crew. Back to super early mornings.
Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles after the work day. Watching the sunset in the evening.
Thursday- 10.21 early miles, temps were starting to warm up towards the end of the week but still a little chilly and rainy in the mornings. I took the evening off from double run days since I had a big run the next day which worked out great.
Friday- 20.22 mile long run! As I told y’all I’m starting to really enjoy doing my long runs on Fridays! It gets it out of the way and then I’m not so exhausted on the weekends. I still run Saturdays though and have been doing some back to back long run stuff. I had a friend meet me towards the end of this run as she was starting her run since she works from home. So it was nice to have a buddy to help me get it all done.
Saturday- 16.02 miles with the WRRC crew. Again this was kind of drizzly foggy run but the legs felt good and I actually ran this one a bit faster than Friday’s run. Success.
Sunday- 4.22 relaxed miles in the morning to hit 80+ miles for the week. Done and done.
Oh plus I made buffalo cauliflower on Super Bowl Sunday! I am absolutely making this dish again. Perfect with the Frank’s Red Hot.
And there you have it!
How was your week last week? Did you get some strong runs in?!

I’d be SO mad the second that I realize those aren’t wings haha.
You know what I totally thought my friends would think that, but they loved them!! 🙂 Hope all is well my brother.
It is! Good to see you continuing to do big things with that 50 miler. I’m sure you’ll kill it.
IMMEDIATELY started salivating upon seeing your buffalo cauliflower photo, ha!
