Hi, hey and hello to you! Hope you had a terrific Easter weekend! Mine consisted of all of the things I love the most…friends, brunch, fun and of course running! I was able to get in 79.1 miles of running last week. I am tapering just a bit for my upcoming Divas Half Marathon. Anyway, let’s do a quick recap!
Monday AM- 8.10 miles at lunchtime. It was pretty warm and humid in the afternoons all week long last week. I’m definitely going to have to start shifting back to early Monday mornings as we transition into summer training.
Tuesday AM- 10.31 miles with my Irving Running Club. Still hosting the morning runs and it is going well so far. I did most of my miles with them and then a little more on my own.
Tuesday PM- 4.02 miles, 7:42 overall pace. It felt good to get in a faster (for me) run despite the humidity. And especially after the 10 mile run that morning the legs were still feeling strong.
Wednesday AM- 7.16 miles around lunchtime, work was crazy last week. I got some much needed rest and then ran when I had a little down time. Again, humid and very sweaty but it got done.
Wednesday PM- 3.02 miles to hit double digits on double run day. I discovered a new to me park in the area that is absolutely beautiful! It kind of felt like I wasn’t in DFW anymore. I’ll have to make a point to head back out to this park very soon and run some awesome hills.
Thursday AM- We had a great turnout for the morning club run. 12.12 miles total. I think people are trying to avoid the heat and humidity later in the day. I always love when we have a decent size early bird group.
Thursday PM- 3.03 miles because I had a little time in the day before I taught class that night at the gym. 15.15 miles total for the day.
Friday- REST DAY for running. This was more of an active recovery day because I took a spin class that night at CycleBar. Glow sticks and a live DJ…come on, how do you resist that?
Saturday- 20.02 mile run with my neighbor in the ‘hood. I was glad to get in another solid training run as I’m running an ultra 2 weeks after the Divas Half. I’ll do one more big run like this before Hachie 50.
Sunday- 11.31 miles on Easter Sunday. My mom gave me an Easter basket! You are never too told for Easter baskets, in my opinion.
And there you have it!
How was your Easter weekend? Did you spend time with the fam?
