It’s Monday, time to rock a brand new week!! But first, let’s recap last week’s miles and some weekend fun. I was able to get in 85 miles of running last week! My ultra training is coming along quite nicely so far. Eat, sleep (lots), run, repeat!! That is the life of an ultarunner, and I love it. Let’s review, shall we?
Monday AM- 11.21 early morning miles before the busy work day. It is becoming more and more imperative that I get these runs in before that Texas summer heat shows itself in full force. Great morning of running enjoying the early breeze.
Monday PM- 2.10 mile warm up before the gym. 7:46 pace in the straight up triple digit heat? I can’t complain at all.
Tuesday AM- 10.30 miles with the run club crew. It was super humid and gross that morning but we got it done. Having good convo while getting the miles in definitely helps.
Tuesday PM- 4.02 double run day miles. Thankful for the shade to get through it.
Wednesday AM- 8.11 miles solo enjoying the sunrise. Legs were pretty tired on this day and the humidity was a killer so I was glad to get it in. Made a pit stop at 7 eleven for my 79 cent big gulp hydration. 7 eleven is the real MVP.
Wednesday PM- 4.31 miles, 8:41 pace loop around the park. Loving my after work double run days, especially after a long day it feels good to release a little steam.
Thursday AM- 10.25 miles, most of this run was with a new runner girl who has joined our group. She’s actually a sub 3 hour marathoner who likes to do her super easy runs with me. So basically my new runner BFF. Love it.
Thursday PM- 3.03 uneventful miles before the gym, just passing time and warming up after work.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday AM- 20.21 EARLY miles in my ‘hood. I actually kind of enjoyed the super early wake up. Mind you I was in bed Friday night at like 8:30 pm. Super exciting, I know. LOL. The sunrise though was oh so worth it.
Sunday AM- 7.11 rocky rooty trail miles with my trail buds. The view from the top was spectacular.
Sunday PM- 5.12 miles around the block, my legs had a little bit of speed left so I pushed the pace a bit at the end.
I ended the day poolside which was quite nice! I almost fell asleep at the pool I was so relaxed.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Did you get some pool/lake time in?
