Hi there and happy new week! New week – new goals – let’s get down to business.
I have to say the sunset last night was absolutely spectacular after my weekend 20 miler. I had to get out and shake the legs out and enjoy this view. Let’s recap last week’s miles, shall we?! I ended up running over 40 miles for the week and I’m feeling great building my endurance back up after the off season.
Let’s see how it all went down!
Monday- Active recovery day / taught my spin class at the gym. I actually do love getting on the bike especially after a weekend of running. It’s something about spinning the legs with some sprints and hill climbing that I really love.
Tuesday- 6.31 miles watching the sunset after work. Getting the legs moving after the hectic workday.
Wednesday- 4.02 miles with a quick out and back. I am actually kind of enjoying running in the evenings with the sun setting a little earlier. Brings a whole new energy when I do run at night that I absolutely love.
Thursday- 3.03 miles in the morning before the busy work day of teaching at the gym plus work. Love getting out on the local lake and seeing the usual early risers like myself.
Friday- Early morning 4.25 miles. Love kicking off Friday AM with a RUNrise.
Saturday- 20.02 miles with a good buddy!
We have been changing the routes up a LOT for our longer weekend runs which brings a fresh energy into these longer miles. Honestly I feel like that is what I enjoy the most lately about running longer. New scenery to explore.
Plus the leaves now starting to show some color down in Texas has been lovely.
Sunday- 3.03 miles to hit my numbers for the week. Nice and cool easy breezy miles does the body some good.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Did you run some long miles and get out and enjoy the view? Or did you enjoy the view from your couch?!
Both amazing weekend options. No discrimination here.
