Hi there! Hope you had a terrific weekend. I am here to recap last week’s mileage with you! I’ve got a few items up my sleeve ultrarunning wise so training has really been on point as of late. I put in whopping a total of 90.7 miles last week! Let’s recap it, shall we?
Monday AM- I was actually in Galveston on Monday morning after this race so me and my homegirl Tracy ran 6.02 miles before getting back on the road. Beautiful running along the beach is my absolute fave.
Monday PM- 4.11 miles back in Dallas. It was a nice way to wind down from the weekend and I was pretty spent and went to bed pretty early after that.
Tuesday- 8.11 lunchtime miles. It was pretty warm and fairly humid as per usual this time of year in Texas. I like to push myself through the heat though. It’s great not only physically but mentally to run sometimes in such conditions.
Wednesday- My 33.02 mile birthday run! I took the day off from work on my birthday and went to White Rock Lake after the morning rain. Just rocking out to my music and doing some people watching. There were lots of mamas out with running strollers and such since it’s in a beautiful part of Dallas. I also saw a man walking his dog AND his pig at the same time. I can’t make this stuff up, ya’ll.
Thursday- 10.01 miles in the morning with the run club. I did a few miles with them then the rest on my own.
Thursday PM- I had time to kill before I taught an evening class at the gym. 2.21 miles just warming the legs up after a long day at the 9 to 5.
Friday- REST DAY. A much needed one, clearly.
Saturday- 16.10 miles with Tracy. It was 100% humidity and we were both kind of dragging but it got done.
Sunday- 11.12 windy recovery miles with my neighbor Scott. Scott is a pretty interesting guy who is also my neighbor and he’s thru hiked both the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. You know, like that lady off of ‘Wild’? Talk about goals right there. He’s also a badass runner. And a cook. Sweet potato skillet with grass-fed organic meat and peppers and veggies. We had brunch and I borrowed a book from his library. I’ve been meaning to read this one.
And there you have it!
How was your week in running last week?
