You guys…it has been a REAL kind of Monday if you know what I’m saying! Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m back to recap some miles from last week!
Let’s get straight to it!
Monday AM- 7.12 miles along the lake to get Monday started. I always feel better about Mondays in general when I can get an early morning run in. So it was a good day.
Monday PM- 3.22 miles after teaching class at the gym. Just hitting my numbers on double run day.
Tuesday AM- 8.02 miles – first few miles were 800s on the track. We are back at it with hill repeats this week…but last week it was nice to get some track work in and then some cool down miles after.
Tuesday PM- 3.03 miles in the afternoon…going to explore my new fave trail. I need to spend some more time out here. Simply beautiful.
Wednesday- 7.03 miles with friends in the early morning. I had the day off and went to the pool but it was SO nice to be able to get some miles in before play time.
Thursday AM- 7.22 miles later on in the morning, since I had a bit of a staycation I got some heat training in. The humidity was also pretty high last week because we’ve had some rain roll through which we truly needed.
Thursday PM- 3.25 miles ending at a 7:31 pace. Crazy 99 percent humidity and crazy sweaty yes even after a short run. Summertime in Texas…you are the real deal.
Friday- 5.32 miles running on rest day. I’ve been going at this run streak thing (PLUS running high-ish mileage) for a while and I have to say it is going very well. For me this run was more of active recovery since I run so damn much. So this run did not feel like I was doing anything. We will see how much longer the run streak will last. I may go back to Fridays being true rest days, because I feel like I actually need them since I don’t JUST run. Mentally…especially when my life gets busy or stressful I want to run every day. To keep the endorphins pumping. But teaching classes at the gym plus cross training really does add quite the load.
Saturday- 16.33 miles with WRRC. 8:55 pace with the heat and humidity. Felt like a good run and it was a fun a.m. with the crew.
Sunday- 7.02 miles through the ‘hood and the rain that came through definitely cooled it down a bit. I’m telling you…a bit of a breeze and temps below 85 for running in July?! Pure perfection.
And there you have it!
How was your week in running last week? Tell me something random today!!
I’m going to a wine walk with friends on Weds and already so excited after this crazy busy Monday.
