Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday to you. I’m here to recap last week’s running with you. Lots of miles in the Texas sunshine – Just over 73 miles to be exact! Let’s get to it.
Monday AM- 7.12 lunchtime miles. Lots of running in the shade which was marvelous. Someone on my Strava even commented why I take nature photos with so many trees. HA. Now you know why. It’s pretty much summer in Texas and I love my shade.
Monday PM- 2.21 miles, 7:54 pace before teaching a class at the gym. Waking up the body and mind before I had to go be all peppy fitness instructor. Fun.
Tuesday- Early miles with the run club. 10.20 miles total. Cloudy and humid but a nice breeze. I was loving it.
Wednesday AM- 8.08 morning miles. It felt good to get up early on this day and get it in. Just rocking out to my jams. I honestly truly value the solo run time.
Wednesday PM- 4.10 miles, 95 degrees out, 8:15 pace. Not sure how but somehow I got it done. It was nice to get some happy miles in after work. Love my double run days.
Thursday AM- 10.30 run club miles. We meet every Tuesday and Thursday and then get coffee after. It is absolutely glorious. Plus you can’t go wrong with a nice sunrise.
Thursday PM- Another 4.10 miles before the gym. I wanted to get this one in before my rest day which I was really looking fwd to on Friday.
Friday- REST DAY. I checked my mailbox on this day and found out I received new kicks courtesy of Brooks Running! Love representing them and their awesome brand. I was so excited to slip these babies on for the weekend. Glycerin 15s for the win.
Saturday- 15.05 miles super early in the morning before yoga with my long run buddy Tracy. We are both thinking of signing up for the Dallas Marathon again in December and I have a couple of other races in mind. But running in my hometown is always fun. This was a good run and we found some awesome hills in our neighborhood.
Sunday AM- 11.11 miles at White Rock Lake. Everyone was out and about especially the dad bikers on Father’s Day.
Sunday PM- Decided since Strava is doing their ‘MyMile’ challenge and to put in my bid for some fly running kicks I would attempt a PR at the mile distance. And I did it! It was about 90 degrees out and I don’t know how but somehow I managed. It felt good to knock it out. Especially after running all of these ultras…it’s nice to know I still have some speed on my legs.
I also did a little grocery shopping…peaches just smell so fantastic this time of year.
And there you have it!
How was your week in running last week? How was your weekend?
