Running, Weekend

Trail Run Fun, Cooling Off and Wknd Recap.

Hey there! Hope your weekend was wonderful and you were able to spend a little time in the sunshine! I got my morning started with a 10k in the ‘hood…great way to start the week that’s for sure. Plus I hit the weights and got some strength work in afterwards. Hashtag never miss a Monday.

Let’s recap the weekend a bit and start with my Saturday morning run. 11 miles total with the Irving Running Club.


Check out that high for the day though. It was about 80 early in the morning…so in comparison not so bad. Plus plenty of awesome cloud cover.

Followed up with a ton of rest and relaxation time. Much needed. My mind is always gogogo so it was so nice to do nothing for the rest of my Saturday. I went to church and was basically a vegetable after.

Sunday morning we all headed back to the trail for some Sunday funday action! We have a big race weekend coming up (hello, trail relay!) so I’m really looking forward to that. We got a good run in while chatting and talking about our race strategies.

Followed up with a mimosa picnic in the park. Fresh fruits and veggies for the win.

Post trail run I got cleaned up and spent some more time in the heat by the pool. Sunday the pool was pretty tame! Probably because it was basically 100 degrees outside.


Cooling off with a daiquiri with friends. And some cajun food. This place is the best.


How was your weekend? What’s the weather like there?
Super hot down here! But at least temps are a bit cooler in the mornings for running!

  1. I think our weather here is just about the same…hot hot hot…an occasionally afternoon shower, but cooler morning temps for running if I manage to get out early enough 🙂
    Pretty looking trail you did! I’m so excited for your trail relay!! You know I love Trail Ragnars, so can’t wait to hear all about your race!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. You should be more than ready for your trail relay. It’s hot HOT ☀️ here too. So hot I need the AC constantly going and I hate the AC blasting.

  3. those are some crazy temps and humidity…i wont even mention our conditions right now, but we get our payback in the winter months, though even here last year we were running in the 90’s…guess we’ve been lucky so far! next race sounds like a blast with your running group, lots of fun!

  4. i was in vegas over the weekend and was all ready to run the strip..except it was 90 when i get up at 5am with the sunrise at 5:30am. treadmill it was for 8 relatively cool miles! we sat by the pool and relaxed! that fruit looks amazing…guess it must be lunch time lol

  5. Trails, fruits and that pool!!!! I am JEALOUS!!!! Wish we lived closer. You’d be my wake-up call every morning. Would be a nice change from my normal alarm clock (two kiddies dragging me back to bed…). 🙂
