Hope your week is off to a smashingly good start! It is HOT as all get out down here in Texas so my runs lately have been all about survival. I took the miles down a bit last week to allow for some recovery. Let’s see how it all went down!
Monday- 5.11 sunset miles. Much needed after a busy Monday. Honestly I really look forward to this after the long work day. Work has been so hectic lately so it is a huge wonderful stress release.
Tuesday- 7.22 miles after work with some hills thrown in for good measure.
Wednesday AM- 5.25 miles in the morning on Global Running Day! With the most glorious sunrise. So needed this.
Wednesday PM- Double run day miles on Global Running Day! 3.20 miles at lunch. In the crazy hot heat. I’m a sucker for punishment.
Thursday- 7.22 miles with crazy humidity in the early morning. Honestly I think I prefer running in the dead of the heat than these crazy humid mornings. I am more of a dry heat girl though. But gotta get it done. So get ready to hear me continue to b*tch and moan about being drenched every morning.
Friday- REST DAY. Needed a breather from the busy week. I can’t decide if I like Fridays or Sundays better for my rest day. Hmm.
Saturday- 10.01 miles with the WRRC gang! Miles with good friends on a Saturday is where its at.
Sunday- Quick HOT run. Basically another rest/active recovery type of day. Just to get my numbers in for the week. 3.2 miles around the block done.
And there you have it! Nice little recovery week.
What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Feeling like summer?! How are you adjusting to the heat/humdiity?

The heat and humidity are back in Virginia. I’m not ready for it! My two most humid runs this week were Wednesday (3.1 miles) and Saturday (9 miles). Marathon training team started back this week in preparation for the Richmond Marathon. We’ll see if the race will be real or virtual this fall…
Woo!! Yeah a lot of races are canceling. Wondering if a lot of races will follow suit with Boston. I’m still trying to figure out (if they happen) if I’m running my 50 miler or my fall marathon. OR BOTH haha. Decisions, decisions 🙂
I think it will come down to which virtual I want to do… but still crossing my fingers that Richmond will happen! We’ve got several newbies who deserve the marathon experience!
haha. I won’t be doing any race that is not in Texas virtual. I would rather defer MCM and have the real experience. They have given us that option too. I’d rather run 30 plus miles without paying for it than run a marathon virtual style. Something is wrong with me, I am aware 😉
I hear you on that. MCM is a beautiful race, and I hope we can run it next year! The only virtual races I’ve done thus far are with Sports Backers here in Richmond. I want them to survive so they can continue to do all of the important work they do (besides organizing the biggest races in the area) to promote active lifestyles!
That is so kind of you 🙂 MCM is beautiful. It’s one of the RACE-cations I’ve done multiple times! Happy training to ya!
I have been letting my little one ride her bike and I run. The humidity is something else.
Aww fun! Yeah I bet the humidity in your neck of the woods right now is intense!
