Happy Monday to you! Hope everyone had a marvelous weekend. I’m here to recap last week’s running – 75.3 miles last week! Let’s do a quick review on how it all went down.
Monday AM- 7.21 early miles. Last week was rather warm, can’t believe we still have temps in the high 90s in October! I am looking forward to cooler temps this coming week though. Should be just perfect for all of the the lovely fall festivals coming up.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles, warming up before teaching a class at the gym and getting a double run day in.
Tuesday AM- Back with the Irving Running Club crew. 10.15 miles total that morning. Love knocking it out early with my breakfast club.
Wednesday AM- 8.21 solo miles. The humidity was rather intense I must say. Legs were pretty tired too. A little residual tiredness left over from the 100k probably, ha. So this was some nice and easy miles.
Wednesday PM- 3.03 miles at lunch because it was simply a gorgeous day out. I’m trying to get all of the heat training in that I can before it cools off.
Thursday AM- Back with the run club. 10.27 miles and then some much needed coffee after. It started to cool off towards the end of the week though so this run wasn’t so intense and didn’t feel as much like a sauna. Nice easy relaxed pace.
Thursday PM- Quick 3.23 miles, killing time before I taught my spin class.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday AM- 18 miles at White Rock Lake. Love doing loops around this lake. There are a few fall and winter races coming up for me so I’m working on building back up. I had a buddy meet me out there to join in for a few miles along my second loop. So nice to have a friend to chat with as the miles went by. There was also a race going on out there so I saw a few of my running friends from back in the day. Gotta love that. I felt good and really strong on this long run.
Saturday PM- I had an early dinner date so I decided to lay low and be low key on Saturday evening. Hey, plus that means more time to get some more miles in! 4.03 miles around my ‘hood. I really enjoyed this evening run after running long. Lots of folks out on the lake so I did some night time people watching.
Sunday- 8.11 miles before heading out to the new Dallas Cowboys practice/training facility! Guys, this place is absolutely gorgeous. Like if you come from out of town to visit me I am going to have to take you one day. They even have a Nike specialty store and the brand new gym is immaculate. I did a workout out there with the Dallas Fitness Ambassadors.
Then, of course refueled with mushroom flatbread with goat cheese and arugula. Oh my goodness. Heaven on a plate.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Who ran the CHICAGO MARATHON or another race?! If so, congratulations!!!
