Hey there and happy Monday! Hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Let’s recap some miles from last week!
I took the miles back a bit in order to build back up so this was a bit of a recovery miles type of week. I can’t even tell you the last time I did less than 40 miles per week in the last couple YEARS (ha) so this was good for the body mind and soul.
Monday- Took a rest day after a long fun weekend cooking out with the neighbors. I always try to do some type of active recovery on my rest day so I did some yoga stretching and keeping the body limber.
Tuesday- 5.12 miles watching the sunset.
Wednesday- 7.02 miles, massive relative effort. Legs felt good on this day so did some rolling hills. This view though.
Thursday AM- Breakfast run club miles. 7.11 miles just getting it done. The humidity was also not as crazy on this day so was feeling great.
Thursday PM- Double run day miles. 3.02 miles and I was freaking 100 degrees out. Sucker for punishment. Over 10.1 miles total for the day.
Friday- 4.02 lunch miles. Tough relative effort according to my Garmin.
Saturday- 7.01 miles at 7. With my run club to the tune of this sky.
Sunday- Rest day. Got a good selfie in.
And there you have it! 53K miles for the week. I am going to just start using kilometers instead of miles for now whenever I do a low mileage week. HA.
Doing any virtual races at all? If you’ve done them how did they go?? Have your marathons been canceled or are they still going on?
MCM has turned virtual finally so I have deferred til 2021. I may end up just running the distance on my own since they’re charging more money to do the actual race.

Sometimes dialing it back can be just as productive as a high mileage week. Still, I can count on my hand how many times I’ve run over 40 miles in a week.
I’ve been looking for a ton of virtual races and may do a few this year. There was even a site that specialized in doing virtual races quarterly. I’ve only done one virtual race before then and it was ok. Something about running with/against others that has a different vibe.
So true! I am getting better at coming to terms with what you said in your first sentence. 🙂 Have an amazing week!
I’m running MCM virtually this year. Really excited about the medal, though! And then only 2 more until I’m in the Runner’s Club! The heat and humidity in Virginia has been brutal. Not looking forward to my runs this week…
I can’t reason with paying the $45. I may just do it on my own though. 🙂 I’ve really been LOVING running on my own without obligations. I hope you enjoy your runs this week! Sending good vibes to you 🙂
Thank you! You, too! I’m in the fortunate position to get reimbursed for the race!
I gotcha. If I run it (virtual?) I will qualify for the Runner’s Club since I’ve run it so many times. I forgot about that actually but since you mentioned it I remember now. LOL. Gosh I love that course! I’ll miss seeing it this year.
Yeah… that makes it worth it, IMO. You’re basically paying for that medal and the shirt. The medal is supposed to be epic this year. Hoping the shirt is as nice as last year’s!
GIRL! Ok. I’ll marinate on it. haha
I want to try to do a virtual run. That would be fun!
All you have to do is sign up and go for it! Great accountability for those who need it 🙂
