Happy Monday to you! I was up and at ‘em this morning for a beautiful run by the rising sun. Feels so good to get it in early at the start of the week! Let’s recap some weekly miles though!! I was able to get in just over 71 miles last week. Nice week just kind of in maintenance mode before racing season ramps back up.
Monday AM- 7.20 hot lunchtime miles. Yeah running for an hour in 95 degree heat. That’s great fun.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles warming up before the gym. The legs needed to wake up from the long day at the office so I got them moving a bit before I went to teach a class.
Tuesday- 11.20 early miles with the Irving Running Club crew. I did a few warm up miles on my own and then the rest with the crew. I was happy to get all of this in before the workday because it was seriously blazing + humidity central out. Oh yeah, I said I wasn’t going to complain about summer running, right? Right. I’m totally not complaining. I love it. Really, I do!
Wednesday AM- 8.21 miles solo in the ‘hood. I like to sleep in a bit on Wednesdays since I’m always doing these a.m. club runs (which I help out with hosting) so dang early. So on Wednesdays I sleep in until 6 a.m. LOL. It is quite lovely really.
Wednesday PM- 4.01 miles before yoga. My body has been really craving yoga too since I’ve been keeping these miles up. I think I’m going to have to start doing some more yoga studio hopping. I also need to check out Super Yoga Palace which I hear is amazing.
Thursday- 10.02 miles with the run club again. We’ve had a few folks join back up with us in the mornings since it is getting so hot. We actually got into the triple digits this past week, and of course with the heat index it feels like it is 2948 degrees. Gotta love Texas. But I do love the morning runs with my club friends in the summer when we get more people joining us. As you can imagine in the winter it is much harder to get a dedicated group.
Friday- 4.10 hot lunch miles. Fridays are typically rest days for me and to be honest 4 miles still feels like a rest day at this point. LOL. I had extra energy to burn for whatever reason and decided to go streaking. Just hitting those numbers.
Saturday- 16.30 miles practically solo since we had storms early. I ran the last few miles with Tracy…typical Texas storm came through quickly and was gone in a flash. It was nice though because it cooled things down a bit.
I participated in some post run festivities with Tricia and friends, doing a little brewery hopping.
Sunday- 7.11 miles, fairly humid but cooler after the rain. It still felt like a sauna out there but I got it done.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend?
