Happy Monday to you! I am here to recap some fabulous running from last week!! It was a bit of a SUPER week mileage wise – 91.8 miles to be exact! Let’s recap and see how it all went down.
Monday AM- 10.22 morning miles enjoying the cool breeze off of the lake. Getting in over 10 miles before the work day even starts is kind of my favorite thing.
Monday PM- 3.32 miles after teaching spin. I was clearly on a roll that day. Love my double run days.
Tuesday AM- 7.12 miles after the rain. Y’all, we had a ridiculous amount of rain last week down in Texas. It truly felt like springtime with the rain and humidity. So it was a lot of me having to wait until the storms pass to get out there and bust it out. It ended up being a good run during that lull in the storms.
Tuesday PM- 3.22 miles after the gym. Running on some tired legs.
Wednesday AM- 7.25 miles. Humid and breezy. I did love the morning breeze though as the frigid air is starting to get a tad warmer. Back to wearing shorts on the run.
Wednesday PM- 4.12 miles to end the day. It rained again during this run but there was something about running in the rain that was cleansing to my spirit. I know I sound like a total hippie saying that, but oh well.
Thursday AM- 11.05 miles, back with the breakfast club crew. It felt good to get back to running without torrential downpours of rain.
Thursday PM- 4.03 miles done. Of course I had to throw some strides in there for good measure. It felt good to see 7 minute miles back on my watch.
Friday- REST DAY
Saturday- Last day of crazy rain for the week. I ended up running at lunchtime. I was selected as an official PACER for the COWTOWN ULTRA (first time pacing a 50k race, but I have paced a few times both half and full marathons) on Sunday and needed my legs to be good and tired for the pace I was supposed to be running. So, 10.23 miles done the day before the race.
Oh – and I told y’all I would be posting more food pics (when you run high mileage you forget to do things like take endless selfies of yourself and pics of food what can I say buuuut I am trying to be a better blogger I promise – end rant) Here was my breakfast that morning. Starbucks Americano and egg bites. OMG why didn’t y’all tell me how good the egg bites at Starbucks were?!? I’m in love. I need to recreate these at home, stat. Or, just hire someone to make them for me.
Sunday- I ran the Cowtown Ultra!! Race day pace day. Recap to come. Me and my pace partner made a great team and got everyone to the finish in a timely manner. Woohoo! I am a tad sore today after all of that runnin.
Pacers gonna pace.
Oh, and I celebrated afterwards in Deep Ellum with adult beverages with friends. Cheers.
And there you have it!
How was your weekend? Have you ever been a pacer for a race? Any more races on the horizon?
I am debating on signing up for a St. Patty’s Day 5k in March…just because there will be a lot of fun friends/tailgating involved. We shall see. Oh yeah, and all of these races too. I’ve already signed up for the Hachie 50 miler in May again so getting back on track with more ultra training! Woot woot.
