Hope your week is off to a great start! I am back from the weekend and ready to recap some of last week’s mileage with you. I managed to squeeze in over 75 miles of running last week!! So let’s get right into it!
Monday AM- 8.02 lunchtime miles. The weather has been kind of off and on lately (ahh yes, love Texas this time of year) but I managed some lovely solo miles at a 8:47 pace. Legs actually felt pretty good on this day.
Monday PM- Very quick warm up before teaching a class at the gym – 2.22 miles, 8:16 pace. Over 10.2 miles total for the day.
Tuesday AM- 10.02 easy miles after a rain storm. Nice early start before the busy work day. Usually I end up having 2.5 cups of coffee on days like this. I need coffee in a IV.
Now you know my secret.
Tuesday PM- 3.02 evening miles. Just gathering my thoughts- stretching out the legs, and getting them loose from the 9 to 5.
Wednesday AM- 8.08 miles in the morning with my neighbor. The sunrise was kind of ridiculous that day. In a good kind of way.
Wednesday PM- 4.12 miles after work before some happy hour fun. Yeah, clearly you see a double run day pattern going on here. Just call me butter because I am on a roll.
Thursday AM- 10.11 very sleepy miles with IRC, did most of my mileage with them and a few more on my own. Yes, we do love our shoe pics.
Thursday PM- 3.02 miles, 8:33 pace. Warming up the legs before gym.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday- 15.15 conversational miles with Tracy. It was humid and cloudy outside with a little breeze which helped. We are both gearing up for a few races. She’s a former college cross country athlete so I love running with her. She enjoys running with me because I love to go long and I love to run with her because she’s amazing at racing. We are running sole mates indeed.
Sunday- 12.02 trail miles on tough terrain with my trail running friends. The Ragnar relay people were there to chat about upcoming races, giving out freebies and such.
Love navigating the rocks and roots. To be honest since my 100 miler I’ve really missed being back out on the trails so I’m going to have to find another trail ultra soon. I’ve got my eye on a few things before the end of the year including a 100k in November (62 miles).
I am loving my Brooks PureGrit 5’s by the way. It took a minute to break them in but they are perfect for a rocky trail.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Did you do any St. Patty’s Day celebrating?
Yes, accompanied by a few mimosas with friends on Saturday.
