Hey friends! Hope you had a marvelous long weekend. I am definitely looking forward to a rather short work week leading up to the Rock n Roll San Diego marathon (26.2 number 26!) next Sunday! So looking forward to this race-cation and going back to Cali to get away for a bit.
Let’s recap some of last week’s miles, shall we?
Monday AM- 7.27 miles at lunch time. Hot and humid miles with lots of shade. I am discovering new trails and hidden pathways along my route and I kind of love it.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles, 7:39 pace. Warm up before teaching a class at the gym. Uneventful. Sweaty, but pretty uneventful nonetheless.
Tuesday AM- 10.21 miles with the Irving Running Club. Of course I do a few miles with them and then some on my own. I really haven’t tapered much for this upcoming marathon simply because I don’t really care or want to. Clearly. Hashtag ultrarunners run marathons too.
Tuesday PM- Another 3.02 mile warm up before the gym. Honestly it helps me to get a quick run in before teaching classes because I simply am tired from the work day and it perks me up. I love it.
Wednesday AM- 8.02 miles again at lunch. Kept it around an hour so working on pushing it a bit in the heat.
Wednesday PM- 5.05 miles in the evening with a beautiful butterfly sighting at the end of my route.
Thursday AM- Ran with the club again. I love being able to get 10.07 miles in before 7 a.m.
Thursday PM- 3.03 miles before the gym. Not much else to say about that.
Friday- REST DAY. A legit one. Yes, I was on a running streak there for a bit but since I teach classes at the gym I really crave at least 1 day off.
Saturday- 14.02 miles at White Rock Lake. I slept in and started extra late so the humidity was off the charts. Good run though and despite it being nearly 90 degrees I kept it at an 8 something minute pace.
Sunday- 7.10 Sunday funday runday miles before celebrating my homegirl Tracy’s birthday. Sushi, vino and some poolside chillin the next day. Perfect weekend for the pool for sure.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? What did you do?
