Hope you all had a great weekend filled with relaxation and fun. I ran 74.1 miles total last week and the legs are feeling good! This was a little bump up in mileage from the last few weeks as I finally get my strength back after running Rocky Raccoon 100 a few short weeks ago. Let’s recap!
Monday lunch run- 7.03 miles in the afternoon just enjoying the sounds of nature. We had some pretty decent weather last week so I was just enjoying the sunshine and flowers starting to bloom.
Monday PM- 3.01 miles warming up before I taught a class at the gym. I had a little time to kill so I got in a run at the park. Legs kind of felt tired from the weekend. Typical Monday.
Tuesday AM- 10.21 miles in the morning…ran with the Irving Running Club then finished the last few miles on my own. I threw in some hills for good measure. I have signed up for a little climbing challenge on Strava for the month of March so I will be running up every hill I can find in my neighborhood. Gotta love it.
Wednesday AM- 8.15 miles, ran most of this with my neighbor and his doggie and then the last couple miles solo. Legs felt a little speedier today. Also, the sunrise off of the lake was quite wonderful.
Wednesday PM- 4.11 miles, 8:54 pace before running off to gym.
Thursday AM- 10.25 miles, again with IRC then the last few on my own. I love when I have time to get a good chunk of my mileage done in the morning. Wouldn’t it be nice to just run all day long?? But busy working girl has gotta make that money, honey. Glad I got it in.
Thursday PM- I had more time in the afternoon since I got off work a little earlier so I did another 4.11 mile run, under 9 minute pace. Seeing the bluebonnets along my route made me so happy.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday- 16.05 miles with lots of hills. I ran with my friends Tracy and Scott. Beautiful morning with just enough cloud cover. Followed that up with a little yoga on the bridge with Scott and my yogi friend Tricia. Just the perfect stretch after my long run.
And hello, brunch with friends in Trinity Groves is always the icing on the cake.
Sunday- 11.21 miles, most of this run was again with Tracy and Scott then a mile cool down. I think we are starting to form our own little run club. It’s always a good thing when you and your friends are on the same page with pace and distance.
And there you have it!
How was your week in running last week? Did you do any other fun workouts?
Aside from yoga, I did some strength training & CycleBar class on Wine Wednesday.
