Hey there! Happy new week and I hope you all are staying happy and healthy! Let’s recap and review some miles– and see how it all went down.
Monday- 5.22 miles in the evening while doing some people watching. And social distancing, of course! Thankfully running has been so therapeutic to me going through all of this. I also found out this week (sadly) that my annual Hachie 50 mile race was postponed. All good though– but hey the miles MUST go on, am I right?! I will say I took the week mileage down quite a tad with the sad news. Giving your mind and body a break can certainly be the best for a time. After so many consistent high mileage weeks training for ultras I certainly have been needing it.
But hey, keeping fit and focused remains to be the NAME of the GAME. So we all don’t become a victim of gaining the COVID 19. (“freshman 15” joke was intended there – insert laugh track please.)
Tuesday AM- 4.11 miles at lunch time. The weather down in Texas has been perfectly splendid actually for running. Woohoo for that.
Tuesday PM-3.22 miles to get in double run day miles for the day. Faster finish is always nice.
Wednesday AM- 4.32 miles for a very lovely lunch run. We had a bit of springtime rain and then the clouds came out.
Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles – another double run day. Gotta get it in where it fits in.
Thursday AM- Lunch miles were pretty popular this week! The sunshine just puts a whole new joy into my day. 4.13 miles complete.
Thursday PM- 6.32 miles and smiles. Relaxed run to get in over 10.4 something miles for the day. Plus this sweet rainbow for the win.
Friday- 10.12 miles on Friday! It felt good to get out for just a little bit longer.
Saturday and Sunday- REST DAYS. So much needed. Got to kick the feet up in proper fashion.
And there you have it!
How are you dealing with the crazy lately? What are things that are bringing you comfort and peace at this time?!
Running, sunshine, prayer and wine.

Thanks! Stay heathy Antin!!
I’ve been running as usual, but back to my maintenance distances. 3, 3, 6. I’ve also dusted off my bike! And I bought a new jump rope. My old one has a kink. I’m going to blame the kink on my difficulty with double unders right now! Missing weight lifting. Can’t even find any decent sized dumbbells right now!
Jump rope! Love that!! I want go hula hoop outside 😉 and play hopscotch.
I’m working from home most days and on a break from training, so I get to run when I want and how I want for a while. 🙂
I really miss the social running, the social coffee and the social drinking though.
Aww I hear you. Be well!!
Soooo gladddd the social distancing has not interfered with your running. Literally must be the best therapy these days!! I need to figure out what to do now that gyms are closed and I live on the couch… 🤔 I’m thinking streamable workout content is in the very near future for me 😬
Yeah, I run alone (mostly) so it hasn’t affected things much. I’ve been running high mileage for years though so scaling it back a bit is good for the body and soul. Loving the at home workouts too!
