Hey there!! Hope you’re having a beautiful Monday so far. Today is actually my Thursday (woot, woot holla if you hear me) and yes I have yet another long summer weekend coming up. SUPER stoked. So, let’s recap some of last week’s running workouts in training for this race, shall we?
Monday- 4.12 miles after teaching class at gym. So glad I waited till the sunset…it was so sticky out. Not that running in the evening really helped much, as its still close to triple digits down here. But you know what I mean.
Tuesday AM- 8.22 miles in the morning with the run club crew. We did some 800s on the track and then I did cool down miles to hit 8. Kinda felt like I was dragging ass and struggled to keep the pace but got it done.
Tuesday PM- 3.03 miles in the evening and I’ve discovered a new frozen daiquiri place close to the trails that I like to run. Yes, this could be a problem.
Wednesday AM- 7.22 easy miles in the a.m. Humid as all get out.
Wednesday PM- Another 3 mile run in this new park I’ve discovered. I’m forcing myself to do some heat training which has proven to be really good because I don’t feel like I’m dying as much in this Texas summer sun. Emphasis on AS MUCH.
Thursday AM- 10.03 miles while watching a glorious sunrise. Knocked out some hills that morning too.
Thursday PM- 2.02 miles, 7 something minute pace warm up before the gym. Nice confidence booster since it was 359305 degrees out.
Friday- 4.13 miles to kick off the glorious weekend. Running on rest day, run streak continues. But this was pretty uneventful. It was by the lake so I guess that was a nice perk.
Friday night. A little happy hour action. It was at this place..their avocado toast. Delicious. Of course, we had to have a mini photoshoot.
Saturday- 20.03 miles getting It done. These 20 mile runs have felt a lot tougher lately, I think it is because this is the hottest summer we’ve had down in Dallas in quite a while. One girl joked yesterday that it was hotter all weekend than it has been in Qatar. Ha.
Sunday- 8.35 miles total. Starting on roads and ending on the trail.
We had a little going away event for a girl that is on our trail club. Fresh summer fruits. Love love.
And there you have it!!
How was your weekend? Have you been working on your tan??
